  1. Our oldest player is Ernie Lake, he started playing at Hatfield Wasps as a 14 year-old winger and played prop on four occasions last season at 58 years old, He has broke to many bones in his body to count including his neck against West Hull back in the 80's, he recovered from that and 18 months afterwards turned out in the centre for half a game, the second half he went back to prop. A year after coming back he signed with Sheffield Eagles and then went on to play for Doncaster before returning to the amateur ranks.
  2. Underbank have been in the NCL for many years with the same pitch.
  3. It's obvious that the NCL committee have dropped their standards to attract a greater number of clubs in recent times, within the amateur games we've always had some clubs with excellent facilities but weak on the park and clubs who where strong on the park but weak in other departments, I suppose the new vision must be to let teams in and let them grow whatever parts are missing whilst playing.
  4. Is kicking for goal with a road behind the sticks not allowed in the NCL - Just be thankful it's summer rugby your playing on their pitch.
  5. Would have been a great day for the 34 players who took part in the BARLA Cup final.
  6. I took in the Fev Lions v Dewsbury Moor game, it was a good game for a neutral until Moor had a couple sent off in separate incidents mid-second half.
  7. Pilot error or the fitting of the wrong nut and bolt seems to be the main reasons for most air crashes.
  8. How long as the hooker been called a forward half ?
  9. Whats a forward half and you said the half-backs would do less now you've got them running more as for the Auckland 9's how many short games did the crowd get to see because I can't see many turning up to watch 15 mins of rugby. Each team is allowed a squad of up to fifteen players, with no more than nine players on the field at any time. Unlimited substitutions are allowed from a named bench of four players. The match lasts for 15 minutes, divided into two halves of 7 minutes 30 seconds. There is no half time interval but teams are allowed a maximum of 1 minute to change ends. Each half starts with a place kick. Scrums consist of no more than 5 forwards, with a maximum 3 in the front row and 2 in the second row. When the ball is in the scrum no more than 4 players from each team shall act as backs. The ball must emerge from behind the feet of the second row. Conversions after a successful try take the form of drop kicks. Players from the team that has conceded the score do not have to retire behind the try line but must not interfere with any conversion attempt. When points have been scored the team against which points have been scored will restart the game with a tap restart from the centre of the half-way line. When a team is awarded a penalty then play must proceed by way of a tap 10-metres in advance of where the infringement took place. In the event of misconduct by a player the referee can suspend for 5 minutes. In the Carnegie Floodlit Nines, a major nines competition, this has been reduced to 2 minutes.[1
  10. Slap my wrists now - You talk some HORLICKS Englan and Tonga are probably stronger in the forwards than the backs and with more room on the pitch the half-backs would become more active. (Have you actually played rugby league after school)
  11. We decided to go with a retro style shirt a couple of years ago and went for this one
  12. This must be the first season that this has happened and it needs all concerned to work this out together which it should have been done via the community board.
  13. I bumped into the two guys (One in wheel chair) last season, I think it was Bentley v Siddal, I once picked him up from the railway station in Thorne and took him to our ground, then back to the station after the game. Think I'll be going to Ossett this coming Saturday.
  14. Maybe he feels he needs to protect and stabilise what we have already, no army can keep pushing forward with their supplies stretched, boxing and union have always been in front of rugby league.
  15. Do they also run a RLC style competition in the South.
