Dewsbury Faithful Sponsorship Of Jack Richardson

Recommended Posts

The Dewsbury Faithful are proud to announce the sponsorship of local lad Jack Richardson for the 2019 championship season, Jack was at Huddersfield Giants.. But thankfully saw the light and moved to the Ram's, his great uncle Sandy Orford caused quite a stir back in the day to say the least when Bradford Northern beat Dewsbury in the Championship play-off semi-final during the 1942–43 season. However, Dewsbury's manager, Eddie Waring, appealed to the Rugby Football League, claiming that Bradford Northern had fielded Wakefield Trinity's Sandy Orford as a guest player, and that Orford was ineligible because prior to the semi-final, he had played only three league matches for Bradford Northern, rather than the regulatory minimum of four league matches, the semi-final actually being Orford's fourth league match. Bradford Northern was disqualified, and Dewsbury went on to a 33-16 aggregate victory over Halifax in the Championship Final. However, a month later, Bradford appealed to the Rugby Football League, claiming that Dewsbury had fielded Castleford's Frank Smith as a guest player, and that Smith was ineligible because prior to the semi-final, he had played only three league matches for Dewsbury, rather than the regulatory minimum of four league matches, though he had played in a number of cup matches. Bradford Northern's appeal was upheld and the Rugby Football League Council fined Dewsbury £100 (based on increases in average earnings, this would be approximately £11,780 in 2013),[5] stripped them of the Championship title, and declared the Championship during the 1942–43 season void.

Oh dear, PM trips himself up with his perverse logic again. I think that the last major competition that we didn't win was the 2018 Challenge Cup, unless you know otherwise.
