  1. Done deal, Willie heading to West Yorkshire.
  2. Spoke to the refs assessor at the Thatto Mayfield game, not a happy chappy. Quality has been up and down this season but mostly down.
  3. It's ridiculous to say that the National Cup is anything other than the Pennine Presidents Cup in disguise. The Cup has died a death. This is a great shame, as less than 10 years ago I can remember every NCL club entering and being given a good run for their money by Sharlston, Queens, Halton Simms Cross, Bank Quay Bulls, Drighlington and the rest. The winter comp was still healthy even then. Now, the NCL has absorbed the best run and organised winter teams and this has led to the likes of Fryston kicking their heels out in the cold. YML won't take them, NCL never would. So they coast through the final days of the Pennine League whilst entering whatever broader competitions they can in order to pretend they're a force. They brought shame in the sport in the Challenge Cup game against Keighley Their indiscipline cost them on Saturday. They are nothing but a side of washed up thugs who will be back picking on Lindley Swifts in September. And I was at the Siddal game, and it was their third team.
  4. Not impressed with the referee at East Leeds v Judes today.
  5. Thats him, doesn't surprise me he did well in the other code. Other one was Bulmer.

  7. Best 2 referees have seen this season did Milford and underbank and East Leeds v Leigh East. Not sure of names but men who controlled the games and spoke to players on there level. Too many young refs out there at the moment who think they are in super league.
  8. Oh give it a rest, please! Funny how this ref has got the biggest club in the league this week, seeing as his performance was so under par at spotland! Yes, he made mistakes, but for both sides. Sounds like you're still sore after the beating you took... We have Mr Campbell this week.
  9. Halifax fan in peace. Think you played well in the first half but second half failed to play the ref. You lost your cool, summed up perfectly by Blythe running 20m to get involved in a scuffle. Miraculously he stayed on the pitch!
  10. Precisely the same happened the other week at Underbank Rangers. Only the stupid would carry on after being binned!
  11. We as a sport pride ourselves on the authority and respect command by the man in the middle (unlike some other sports...). However at the ncl level of the game things look to be getting worse. Some very young linesman and referees have been abused in the last couple of games I have attended, sadly without consequence. Today's referee at least had the equipment to move a player who launched a tirade at the man in charge. This isn't just a conference problem, we see super League players at it all the time. But when was the last time they saw a card???!!!
  12. Ref

    Some good young refs coming through the system.
  13. Milford look to have strengthened this year and were definitely worth their 2 points at Shaw Cross. Lock lane v dockers sounded good from Facebook.
