What do the rules state if you’ve had a league fixture postponed this weekend due to the rain, but aren’t involved in the National Cups? Do clubs still get the option to leave the weekend free, or will they be required to play the postponed fixture?

For future reference, their after game hospitality is held 30 seconds up the road in a pub called The Sportsman Inn.

I know Knotts v Cas is pretty much the stand out fixture in world rugby. But can anyone comment from the Corinthians v Wensleydale game? Doubt anyone was watching it judging by the swell of the crowd at Cas, but maybe a few of the Corinthians or Wensleydale players are on here?
A big win for Corinthians, did Dale travel full strength or were some of their players spotted on the Sky TV pictures down Whitwood Common?

Thanks for sharing Stella. So although it doesn’t detail what the sutuation was at the start of the 2018/2019 season, it does confirm that the situation will remain the same for the start of the 2019/2020 season. As you can probably tell, I’m merely a player and not a man in the know, can I take from that that the situation at the start of 2018/2019 was that only one team would be relegated through the Yorkshire leagues? Maybe due to Guisborough heading back up North?
Not quite so straightforward. It all depends where the level transfer teams finish. It also depends how many come down into Y1, this year it is two.
With regards to the Level transfer teams, this year Y1 had two teams. Middlesbrough opted to remain in Y1 this season.
You then have the issue of which team wins the Y1/DN1 play off - this, dependent on who drops out of N1E - dictates whether any Level transfers are required for the following season.
At the start of this season, the regs state two down from Y1 - which is the case (Guis will be dropping down and moving over to DN2). Because of this, only one team will drop to Y2. This then has a knock on effect down the leagues.
If Heath fail to win their play off, then they remain in Y1 but that then leaves Y1 top heavy. In that scenario there will need to be the rare occurance of a level transfer across to DN1. I would assume this would be Middlesbrough, but that's for the powers to decide.

With regards to relegation. I suspect DN2 clubs have not paid attention to the Level transfer issue. Chances are there will be 3, yes 3, teams getting relegated this season to accomodate Guisborough moving across. This happened to Blyth 2-3 seasons ago. All sorts of appeals were lodged but the Regs cover it. The NDOC go a bit of a ticking off as i recall because of some procedural issue so i doubt they'll make that mistake again.
So, clear as mud eh?


I must say, i don't envy the teams in DN2 next season. Guisborough are a very good team and in most games run the opposition close. Look at their bonus points.

Thanks for illustrating so well Stella, I'm sure that will be welcome news to Barnsley, WPL, Ripon, Vandals, Schmeds, Baildon and Aire!

Also, still doesn’t really explain why the RFU have booked Thorne’s game against Pythons for May 4th rather than the 27th April!

Stella are you talking about Baildon v Thorne, if so how can it be a dead rubber for Baildon, they are still in a relegation battle, cancelling does not appear to be a fair option for the others in the mix.

They aren't in a relegation though

Postie, you seem to be the only informed person in the Yorkshire leagues. Please enlighten us on where you have seen confirmation that the 12 team restructure is happening for the start of next
season ... Or are you just assuming your role as wind up merchant as per?
There is no 12 team restructure.
But you need to look at what’s happening above, Y1.
It means only one team coming down in the York’s leagues and this carries on down the league structure.
But, as Postie says, they aren’t in a relegation position - currently

Is that now 100% confirmed Stella?

So some teams have clearly checked out and taken an early summer break, but there is still some very important fixtures for other clubs left to play.

Thorne vs Pythons, currently booked for the 4th May, assuming Thorne make it to Twickers, when is that game likely to be held? Comment from anyone at Pythons or Thorne is welcome.

Baildon vs Thorne, can’t see this one pencilled in anywhere in the England rugby website? Does anyone from either club know when it’s likely to be played?

Thorne appear to have a blank weekend on the 27th April...is that staying as is? Seems a bit much to ask for teams to be available to play until 25th May!

Entertaining game against Aire at the weekend, end to end stuff for the most part. Aire seemed to have a lot of youngsters playing and they didn't do badly, should bode well for the future. Aire's big pack troubled us throughout but our defence managed to cope just and when we got the ball we played some good stuff and quick offloads seemed to kill their defence. They've got a real squeaky bum time finish to the end of the season now with Baildon winning. Credit to our flanker Mr G who came straight from a week on the booze in the alps to get picked up from the Airport and play, outstanding effort sir.

Agree with you Beachy, it was an entertaining game to be involved in! Disappointed we let you in for the last try, made the scoreline a little less flattering for us, unfortunately you brought your kicking boots as well! You're right we had 4 lads aged 18 and 3 aged 17 in the squad (6 were backs!), which is testament to our youth set up. Having previously never had a junior section, this season has been the first where a colts squad who have played together since they were 11, are now eligible for senior rugby. The future's looking bright, particularly if we can maintain our Yorkshire 3 status!
