  1. Siddal are a great club and I don't see them struggling... however I think the loss of Garrod, Sanderson etc. will have a big impact. Look at Miners last year after O'Brien left? 1. Thatto 2. Mayfield 3. Wath Brow 4. West Hull 5. Hunslet 6. Siddal 7. Kells 8. Underbank 9. Myton 10. Egremont 11. St Pats 12. Normanton
  2. I played in the Milford v Underbank game and agree he did a good job. He's a Welsh bloke and I was told he refereed Union professionally until quite recently - not sure how much truth there is in it though! Either way, he controlled a very physical game, very well.
  3. Ncl grand final

    Does that mean it will not be a double header with the Div.1 playoff final this year as I believe the final of that is due to be played on the 29th?
  4. Kells and Wath Brow get their third home tie on the bounce along with York Acorn and Rochdale Mayfield drawing their semi-pro counterparts. An interesting tie, good luck to all! Can certainly see a few NCL sides in the hat for the fourth round.
  5. There's some great ties this weekend with a lot of representation from the NCL. Who's your money on to make it to round 3? Kells v Underbank Millom v Pilks Hunslet CP v West Hull Siddal v Northumbria uni Hull Dockers v Fev Wath Brow v Oulton Egremont v Rochdale Mayfield York Acorn v Distington Shaw Cross v Lock Lane
  6. Underbank are at home against Skirlaugh I believe, but that's all I know.
  7. Dual Reg

    Excellent news, roll on the new season!
  8. It seems the NCL are trying to sway the decision of the 'non-believers' of Dual Reg.For me it seems a rather biased statement from a person who should be acting as a neutral. Although the NCL is the pinnacle of the amateur game, the word 'amateur' should is the operative word. The players in this competition do not get paid, they play for the enjoyment of being in a tough comp, without the added seriousness of a pro club. To me, bringing in Dual Reg can only be detrimental to the NCL and will put even more pressure on clubs to keeping players. It'll be interesting to hear the final vote without clubs being an automatic 'yes' for a no vote.
  9. Interesting statement from Mr Hunt this morning. 'The majority of clubs in favour'. No mention of the 'non-voters' being an automatic yes. It'll be interesting to see how it goes in January. Hopefully any club with their head screwed on right will vote this time.
