    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.

    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?

    Sharlston 18 Fev LIONS 19

    He played hooker last Saturday and I am almost sure he is player coach Marauder?
  6. Excellent game yesterday at a very cold "Back o t Wall"ground.Featherstone dominated the first quarter and quickly went 18-0 up with the game looking like it could be a cricket score to the Lions!Sharlston then brought on there sub forwards who totally changed the game especially Field and Miles who started dominating the middle.Back came sharlston and got the score to 18 all but the game was decided by a Frankland drop goal in the last second of the game!My moms were both loose forwards Medforth and Gale.Great game to watch as a neutral.
  7. I believe The RFL do not give any money to the Community clubs but fritter it away on Oxford ,Hemel,Gloucester etc.All these clubs are no longer in the semi-pro League 1?Where is the common sense there?

    Hunslet P

    No programmes for last Saturdays showpiece double header at Featherstone.Apparently the Printers made a c**k up on Thursday so it made me wonder why firstly,was it not possible to go to another Printers and print a thousand programmes out in 24 hours?Secondly,is it not admission by programme in the NCL? So could the admission price not be reduced?

    Barrow arl

    I have seen an old team mate at the Thornhill versus Fev Lions game this afternoon who says it was Dalton ARLFC shawy13!The big lad is called Dave Clough who was a legend in Barrow rugby in the Eighties.Thanks anyway as it was a over 30 years ago and the memory fades so I probably got it wrong?

    Barrow arl

    Many years ago in the mid to late eighties we went to a Barrow amateur club in the cup and lost.I think the changing rooms were in the middle of a big public park?They had a massive second rower called Clough who had played pro at Barrow?Can anybody tell me which team it was?My memory is going due to old age.
