    Challenge Cup Round 1

    Went to Hunslet versus Thornhill match.£3 in to watch a very good game of Rugby league between 2 very good teams with a good crowd watching and 2 top defences on show!Thornhill got a 10 point lead with tries from Mitchell and Haigh but Parkside came back with tries from McShane and Shulver both converted and led 12 10 at half time.A converted try by Stott put the Trojans back in front.McShane got a second try to make the score 16 18 but Thornhill finished the stronger with 2 converted tries from Woodcock and danny Ratcliffe.Look forward to the new NCL season! 3

    When did the RFL stop running the NCL ?I thought they ran everything bar the Hull and Pennine leagues?

    I paid my tenner in and a pound for the "this is Rochdale" and enjoyed the game.I agree that callum and james were the best 2 forwards on the pitch and zak hartley was the best back on the pitch. If I was Carl Forster I would be ringing these guys today and asking them about their availability for the 2019 season ?

    Yorkshire cup

    Surely as there were no programmes or team sheets available at Dewsbury Rams then the game must be classed as a friendly even though it was £15 admission.When I asked the Dewsbury "head of media"for a teamsheet his reply was "I AM NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE YOU ONE"? When I asked why he did not reply?

    NCL Premier 2019

    Thornhill are at Wath Brow on March 16th in Round 2 Cumbrian fanatic.Let me know what you think of them if you go to the game?There at EGREMONT on April 6th after that.
  8. Could it be that talented players like Jean marc Bourrel went to play rugby union in 1980 because there was and is far more money in rugby union than in rugby league?

    NCL Premier 2019

    Hunslet again in 2019 for me.Last I heard they haven't lost any players from last season even though that can change in a matter of weeks.Egremont will be up there as I believe there Barla tour lads are not signing Pro now and are hoping to tour Australia next year?Watch out for Thornhill as well as they have a good pack,experieced halves in Ratcliffe and Morley and a lot of pace in the backs.

    Yorkshire Cup

    These Finals have been played at this time of the year for years and a programme has always been produced for the big day so what has changed all of a sudden?

    Yorkshire Cup

    Two Derby games in the semis!Spoilt for choice really.I went to Doncaster to see Toll Bar beat Three tuns from Hull in a cracking game which went to extra time.No golden point but ten minutes each way after 28 all.Ex Doncaster pros Liam Welham and 2 try Nev Morrison outstanding for Tuns but it was Toll Bar who sneaked it 35 -34 with a drop goal at the death!Pete Green(no.20) was outstanding for the home side.

    Latest addition arrived

    Great to see an amateur club thriving due to the hard work of the Committee and other selfless people.All the best to you.

    New NCL Teams

    Can i say one thing about the NCL and other Amateur clubs.They are totally self funded with no help from any other organisation?I go to an amateur game every Saturday(Ovenden v. Three Tuns last Saturday)and I always put a few quid into the club.Its not a lot but it helps.Secondly it irritates me to see the RFL putting vast amounts of money into white elephants such as Oxford,Gloucester,Hemel etc.If this money had been distributed among the Grassroots amateur teams who produce all the top Superleague/International players then that would make far more sense to me?

    New NCL Teams

    How on earth do you manage to play a game of full contact Rugby League at 54 years old? It defies all the science of getting old?
