Yorkshire 1 / Re: Scores and Updates.
« on: September 23, 2018, 10:57:40 PM »
Not really sure why we are arguing over the whys and whats, all of which are biased depending on which side you support/represent (other than CTJs comment which was actually impartial), if Heath think theyre fit or not, did we bomb this or that, quite frankly it doesn't mean anything. The score was 28-26 we lost. Heath take 4 points we take 1, a painful loss nonetheless. However, as last year i don't think many with take points at Heaths ground so I'm thinking we are up, of course we would have like to take all 4/5 but if you cant win you have to try and take something.

We will learn as a side and build for next week.

Bev 24 Town 19

A close but frustrating game between Town and Bev, albeit the score only actually being close at the end of the game.

In a game of two promotion hopefuls, the quality from both teams (but for two individual moments on the Bev side) wasn't fully translated in part due to the weather. It really was a result that could have been different for a few debatable calls and you could argue depending on what side you were on.

Bev were certainly resolute in defence and limited our backs who would be the first to say they were below par, Bevs on the other hand showed their teeth making 2 length of field breaks resulting in pivotal scores at real key moments of the game..thought Bevs 15 was the stand out player...

I do feel the ref was slow on the uptake to Bev's guile at the breakdown and once more aware in the second half it resulted in one way traffic, multiple cards and eventually a couple of scores for us.

We have to take the result on the chin, and in these cases learn more in defeat than potentially we would have done with the win. The season is long and its how you develop as a group to overcome the various problems and pictures shown by other teams that will ultimately decide if you're in that top 2 come may. We'll be working to that end over the oncoming week. Congrats to Bev and I look forward to the return at our place to set the record straight.

Of course, this was the most active predictions league last year, its continuation (provided there is someone who will champion it) should be a given.

Tbf there was much written about nothing in the thread that ended up Calderdale related. Just a pre pre season related lull I reckon. Think once we get near the pre season games there will be more activity, as much as I hate to say it maybe we are missing some of BRB's nonsense haha.

Suspect a lot of hot air on here, however if Denchy is going to Bev that'll be a quality signing...a class player from my uni days and had a stint at Gate aswell. If the heath 10 comment is true, truth be told they'll be better off..he was by far their weakest link.

Tbf as an ex LMD player, its LMD who are in the wrong and they have been given their punishment. A massive shame to see them in the bottom league but you do the crime you have to do the time.

I too, do question what Ensians would gain from reporting it? A team flying, returning to a better level (where they belong) and having won at twickenham too...pure speculation but maybe they were upset that LMD turned them over earlier in the season.

I don't think LMD are the first team nor will they be the last who have done it. But as everyone says 'rules are rules', a couple of thoughts I will leave you with however is the previous history of students sides.... Team Northumberland leaving the leagues and causing a mess up mid season, Shmeds cancelling a fixture under the reason 'unplayable pitch' because they were more interested in the medical school cup....there is a general dislike toward student teams because of the perceived lack of commitment. Where as in this case, LMD have cheated in a quest to fulfil a fixture against a powerhouse in the league with a thread bare side, knowing they will likely get pummelled.

Like I said, you do the crime you have to take the time dealt as a punishment and they have taken it on the chin. I don't think a single word can be said about Greg the coach who is the RDO for the area. Yes he coaches the lads but the admin/selection has always been done and always will be done by students who do it because they love the game, the club they play for and ironically mixing it with Yorkshire league teams who want to 'work them over'...having moved on to Harrogate and Moortown since LMD, they could only wish for some die hard Yorkshire alacados (who do lots of work off the pitch for our clubs and can be seen doning their club blazers with a pint of bitter in hand shouting the likes of 'offside' and 'every time sir'), I wonder how our beloved clubs would do if we (the players) did what LMD do.

This thread is lapsing into the same as it always does, most clubs denying any kind of benefits given, the same old arguments being made. It'll be homegrown players denoted by an * next...

Think at this level there are many clubs that pay way or another whether its 'expenses'/stash/cash/gym/flights/house/job/all of the above. I think if a club does any of that as mentioned its a question of what they bring to the club. Is it 26 games a season of quality? Is it being at every training session showing the rest of the squad the mentality of that 'higher level', is it working with the colts to help bring them on and prepare for senior rugby?

Every club player reaction to someone getting paid will always be different however, if that player does some or all of the above its difficult to have a problem with it unless you are doing that yourself.

Not quite sure what the fuss is about. Common sense shows that Hull probs can take a full team midweek all the way to Fax because of work and other mid week commitments. Ponte has clearly been used as a compromise to get the games done and prevent a backlog into the off season. A tuesday night would be reduced revenue anyway from a saturday.

Well done to the teams for getting it done.

Yorkshire 1 / Re: End of year report
« on: April 23, 2018, 08:07:56 PM »
BRB, you mean like team of the year which no one did?

Firstly, a note to say an awesome season, mixing it with some great teams and of course some dodgy folk!

Of course I have to start with Town...completed my first season and have loved it their and in Y1. Was devastated we've effectively handed 6th place 'best of the rest' to rish/brods by losing to a fired up and better selby side at the weekend (all this 'nothing to play for' was rubbish). The lads had a rude awakening after not having to try that hard in Y2 for the past few seasons I think. For many who have aspirations to take the team higher we saw you cant knock off in periods against the better teams and expect to win and be in that top pack. I think the aim will be to add to the core of the side and be pushing for promotion next, with a better mentality both on and off the pitch. It'll be a hard off season and we'll be ready and raring come september!

York will obv be prop a hoop, a fantastic season, recruited well and built on what sounds like a sound core. Far and above the best team I faced this year in all facets.

Scarbs, having visited silver royd, looked at their amazing set up, catchment area, are a massive club. IF you rocked up for Nat 2 game you would be suprised to see that type of support and facilities. They play good rugby, I think you can hurt them (rugby wise) when they play however. That said I think they will win their play off (I hope they do), will go a level higher and be able to recruit some additional lads from here/abroad.

Heath are an interesting one, well known for an awesome pack, a great season. However after the wettest season I can remember have they maybe been a false economy? Have they missed their chance where they had their biggest advantage? If they can keep their 13 and add to their backs I'm sure theyll be even stronger next year.

But for a poor start boro would possibly be in that 2nd spot, their 10+12 are their most influential players, again adding in the forwards and they are pretty much there I think.

Bev are good in all areas, gone through their 'transition' after their fall from higher leagues and come out the other side. A force for next year.

Brods is a strange one...against us, behind York I thought this team were amazing, granted they caught us early in the season and after the christmas break, but they had threats all over the field but have seriously gone off the boil? Not sure for the reason..

Rish- only team I didnt play this year but I think will be happy with their season especially if they finish above us as that will show clear progression, not only in league levels but relative to a team who by league standings were stronger than them last year. Key returns being Sam Nunn at 13 and their young 7 from Huddersfield who is mint.

Keigh, we've played twice at the back end so hard to comment on really, a friday night game isnt a true reflection as both teams are missing players and then the end of season game lacked the real intensity of a league game and was over at half time. However, i like Dux, both come a long way from Baildon and LMD days. 4G is a step forward for them be nteresting to see if they recruit quite as extensively this year or whether with all the additions knitted in they can go for it next year.

Hull & Selby- both played better on occasion than their league positions suggest, I suppose they will need to reach this level on a more consistent basis to ensure they arent near the bottom next year.

Salem- a physical team, Bainesy and their 6/12 are their stand outs and they will need to recruit more like them/keep hold of them. Their abrasive style is unique now that WH are gone, think this will actually earn them more points next year.

Ribb/Hills- different style of play but `i feel good enough in their different ways to bounce back next season.
