  1. Any news on new applications have heard Gateshead and Askam have pulled out be sad if this is true.
  2. Went to a game on the 7th August Fryston v East Leeds just to watch a game what an experience the home crowd matched anywhere else I have been for hostility. Both teams played well but the crowd seemed to wind the home team up which was a very young team. Ten minutes before half time with East Leeds 12 points in front it all kicked off and the spectators thought the game had been abandoned. But all credit to the referee he did something I have never seen before instead of abandoning the game which he would have been justified in doing instead he sin binned all 26 players. Surprisingly this worked and it was a good natured game after this East Leeds came out the winners quite easily at the end but my praise and congratulations are to the referee who handled the game brilliantly and praise should be given when deserved so many times have I seen them abandoned games for less. Sorry for the lateness in posting this.
  3. How do you find the regional league tables I can only find the one for Cumbria on the website.
  4. Sorry to sound thick what's a primary rugby league game
  5. Are York trying to not pay players contract money at the moment
  6. 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
  7. Even worse if you have booked flights and accomodation
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Apparently your Jamie is helping Butch overcome this problem by teaching him the strict weight building programme he uses.?
  11. 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.
  12. What happens if you win the playoffs are all these players up to Championship level rugby.
  13. 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.
  14. Marauder heard the leagues are out have you had copies yet if you have can you please put them on cheers.
