  1. 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.
  2. Apparently your Jamie is helping Butch overcome this problem by teaching him the strict weight building programme he uses.
  3. Agree must keep on trying too easy to give up when its gone its gone
  4. 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.
  5. What happens if you win the playoffs are all these players up to Championship level rugby.
  6. 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.
  7. Marauder heard the leagues are out have you had copies yet if you have can you please put them on cheers.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Any news on when league starts and fixture lists normally starts mid September and are they going to create complete fixture lists for the season and not make it up week to week.
  11. Marauder just read in the BARLA topic there are six new teams coming back to the Pennine League who are they and I hope they are commited. Do you yet know how the league is to be run are they still going to have the silly rule that you can still cancel two games which normally causes a backlog of fixtures for the teams furthest afield or teams winning. Just thought I had better start a new topic as it has little to do with the Barla topic.
  12. Good luck lad all the best By the way how much is the Banksy worth
