  1. Holbeck hotel is a nice wave for surfers . Wasn't before it dropped into the sea .
  2. Hull Dockers v Skirlaugh . East Park Big crowd watching todays game , good to see . Maybe the way forward for amateur rugby league is keep it local (save the expense of buses )End of season have playoffs between other areas top teams ? First 10 mins was 100mph both teams producing great defence and great attacking plays . Dockers just about winning the early exchanges . Ref was consistent . Set reset needs binning in amateur rugby . Games pace didn't drop away , incredible fitness from both team s. Dockers opened the scoring via a little grubber kick , nice . Not sure how the scoring went after 1st try . 2nd Half started like the 1st . Fast n furious with few mistakes , defence brutal . Not seen a long range try straight from a scrum for a long time (if ever) Dockers produce a 60metre one , great to see . Skirlaugh looked like they might drop away . They didn't . A period of nice off loads had the home defence in tatters . Couple of Skirlaugh tries had Dockers on the ropes . Who would land the knock out blow ? Dockers did , just ! Final Score 34 - 22 ish . Ref did well . Standard of play was very , very high . It was fast , skilful , result could have gone either way .
  3. Was going to do Whitby parkrun last week . Sadly dogs not allowed . Walk down beach instead .
  4. Watch some grasstrack sidecar racing , very dangerous . Lad did some grasstracking on a mx bike 10ish years ago . Sidecars did well to get to start line , most broke down or had a fire or two well before thsy got on the track .
  5. I played the game for a lot of years . Took the whistle up for 6/7 games . Never really had a grip on the rules to be honest .
  6. Tower Grange Hull Dockers v Kells Great game today , both teams giving it out in defence plus playing some nice rugby . Dockers defence was brutal at times , especially when Kells were trying to work themselves away from own try line . Kells Number 6 received plenty of hammer from Dockers big forwards , maybe he needed a little more help from his forwards ? Dockers got themselves into a decent lead . Kells never gave up the chase , taking the game down to the last few minutes . Ref was the best I have seen this season , allowed the game to flow , never became flustered , kept up with play I would imagine Kells play similar style of rugby each week . Well organised defence , not many mistakes , not many penalties . Score the points when the opposition fall away . Dockers looked strong right across the park as did Kells , Dockers maybe a little more flair ? Pitch looked in good condition , welcome rain Friday night gave pitch a little bit of give . Great advert for NCL Rugby League Final Score 19 points to 12
  7. All teams get hammered from time to time . Few keep getting hammered . Its a tough sport to keep taking heavy defeats . York have had a few over the years (74 - 4 v Giants) HKR / FC have , Eagles etc etc . These are the teams i follow . Lack of rugby league players is the main reason . Maybe the pro (pro used loosely) administrators could have a vision that allows clubs far away from the games strong holds to put down roots , improve standards etc . If England don't do well in this years world cup (or the entertainment is poor) I fear the game will become even smaller on the participation front .
  8. I'm going 1st semi final for a long time . Will probably watch 2nd half of Saints v Wigan . Then hopefully see a HKR win . 5/6 people going in our party , should be a good day , few beers , some rugby , good company , what's not to like .
  9. Been walking park runs for the last couple of years due to knee problems . Last 3 weeks started to run them after dropping a bit of timber , knees feeling better in general activities . Hell its been hard going , dog pulling me round is giving my times a healthy look . 30mins / 29mins / 28mins ish this week . Hoping to hit the 24min mark by end of the summer
  10. Saddleworth v Dockers Dockers went into an early 12 point lead . Home team slowly worked themselves back into the game , taking a one point advantage going into halftime . Both teams produced some decent rugby , both also made far to many mistakes . Dockers took the win 23 points to 17 . 1st time at Saddleworth for me . Fantastic Rugby League venue , fantastic facilities .
  11. East Park . Tower Grange . Dockers A v Beverley A . Good win for Beverley . Played before Dockers 1st team play local rivals Myton Warriors. Myton lost prop forward a few minutes into game for a head butt . Touch judge spotted the head been used , ref straight for the red card . Dockers never looked like losing the game . Scoring some well worked tries from long range , short range. Myton got over the dockers line once . 56 ish to 6 final score . Dockers looked a well organised side both attacking and defending . To many penalties maybe the only downside to todays game . Myton looked unfit , unorganised , not a lot of fight . Good crowd watching as well , plenty from Myton .
  12. What do you want horses to do ? I don't watch much horse racing , only been to one live meeting (which I enjoyed ) From what I've seen they seem to enjoy taking on the race/other horses . Beverley was the race course I've been to . Sound and vibration from the horses was something I wasn't expecting . Seeing them at at full speed was fantastic . Maybe not for the horses !
  13. Anyone catch Wath Brow v Egremont on app .
  14. Beverley park run have had to cancel a few runs due to bad weather , its a little exposed when weathers unkind . Take dog for walks on the Westwood , get 4/5 miles in no problem . Walk into Beverley market place get a coffee/ beer walk back across the Westwood to car parked near racecourse , worse ways to spend a couple of hours .
  15. Hull Docker 30 West Bowling 10 . East Park Hull Great 1st half for Dockers , defending strongly , attacking with speed and skill . Not many mistakes with ball in hand .Not the usual stream of penalties helped Dockers secure a decent lead . Bowling needed to fined another gear to stay in the game . They had a purple patch mid 2nd half to give themselves a sniff of getting back into the game . Dockers found the energy to put the game to bed well before the final whistle . Some great rugby on display , hard well organised defending was enjoyed by a decent crowd . Score was a reflection on the game , maybe a little harsh on Bowling . Ref was a little quick with another set of 6 tackles . In my view this rule needs removing for amateur rugby . Apart from that game flowed quite well .
  16. Great news for Hull K R . Club will have had to pay a decent sum as land was valued ' commercially' . Full site pre rugby ground was a Junior High School complete with good sports facilities . Rugby / football / hockey pitches . Cricket wicket . Athletics area . Gym . Hall . Changing facilities . Lets hope KR can set in motion a positive vibe for the surrounding area . Should allow them to take on the big guns .
  17. I watch Premier rugby on a Monday . Its been fantastic . Mostly good games , no video ref , no baz n tez . Decent commentary , possible one to many in the commentary box . Not surprised numbers watching are decent .
  18. Dockers v St Pats Good game , both teams scoring well worked tries . St Pats started strong , Dockers did well to get back into the game just before the half time whistle . Dockers got themselves into a good position , trouble was they kept giving penalties away , St Pats made them pay taking advantage with a couple of tries . Dockers deserved the win 28 points to 26 ? Officials did well . Maybe ref could have allowed game to flow a little more . Its not super league , defenders deserve a little more time to clear the tackle .
  19. Skirlaugh v Dockers Very poor conditions resulted in a low scoring Skirlaugh win via an interception try . 10 / 8 ? final score . Both teams struggled to put much rugby together due to very wet n windy conditions . Dockers possibly trying to play to much rugby when a few drives and a kick might have been the better way to go .
