  1. Are York trying to not pay players contract money at the moment
  2. Totally agree I do not think it would work and could cause long term damage Premiership teams against Division Three teams too big a gap in standard. Personally think depending when we do restart keep the divisions as they are but rearrange the fixtures so games which are not local can be played on Saturday and if there are not enough Saturdays remaining play some local fixtures midweek
  3. Even worse if you have booked flights and accomodation
  4. Big trouble brewing regarding under 14s draw Leeds and District have got involved regarding one of their teams not getting entered but another team have who also sent their application to an old email address have.
  5. I have had many a good times watching rugby in Hull and hope this is the start of the turnaround it deserves what is 11% in actual numbers compared to the number of established teams losing junior players seeing we have three new teams starting up. Four years ago both Hull teams had a scholarship team now they share one Super League Is ruining junior rugby all over the country junior teams are getting ruined by Super League teams trawling kids in and ruining amateur teams by doing this I honestly think if a player is good enough they should put money on the table "Like the good old days" not sign two or three from the same amateur side so parents can share expenses taking them to training but are really only after one of the players, The Super League has not improved in quality since it first started it has got worse teams pay for has been players to come over as has beings, more back staff than ever, average players getting paid as full time professionals. Basically we are a badly run sport with overpaid management who while they are getting paid do not care about anybody they are not affiliated to and especially below Super League. Wasn't the idea of Super League that teams did not need a chairmen to back a team financially Sky money would do this but look at us now how many teams now do this I can only think of one and they have the highest paid director. I honestly think Junior and Amateur Rugby League has got to pull out of its ties with the professional side and get its own sponsorships and try to find its own grants. I hope this is the first negative remark I have made about Rugby League I have watched it for over 55yrs semi/professional rugby, and Junior for over 35yrs I feel on the professional side Toronto are the only positive side to the game and some established teams are worried about what they might bring to the game.
  6. Apparently your Jamie is helping Butch overcome this problem by teaching him the strict weight building programme he uses.?
  7. Agree must keep on trying too easy to give up when its gone its gone
  8. See some league fixtures have been released and interestingly South Yorkshire Eagles have two teams but a few teams seem to be missing from last year and a few joined just hope its a success with less postponements and regular fixtures.
  9. What happens if you win the playoffs are all these players up to Championship level rugby.
  10. No just heard Drig, East Leeds and Ossett had been moved up to Premier if true do you think this could be because of the number of fixtures they turned up for last season and trying to make the premier more like the conference and hopefully having teams playing every week.
  11. Marauder heard the leagues are out have you had copies yet if you have can you please put them on cheers.
  12. If you approach the referee in the correct manner regarding a decision correct but how did he approach him politely or otherwise. Rammo I have never been an official before you ask but have played and watched for 50+ years and some of my sons are still playing. I don't know what policy your club has regarding officials but most clubs at junior and senior level players are asked to respect them clearly your senior coach does not I am surprised your club has not disciplined him as he is not a good example for your junior players to look up to. I think you should stop trying to justify what he did.
  13. I honestly think if a proper league was set up for winter based on the conference league idea where teams would have to be committed to playing week in week out and given a full fixture list of twenty games at the start of the season after a couple of seasons when teams in the conference league see it is working I think some of them would opt for it. A lot of National Conference teams are struggling for players you see teams turning up with just a team and the odd sub. Some of the players are in there forty's and fifties and are playing out of loyalty to there clubs so they can fulfil the fixture. There are too many alternative options of things to do in summer.
