Must be the mercenary types. We have no spares as we still rely on the evergreen Thwaity at 55 years young. Hope nobody tells Rotherham about him!!!!

Not the same in lowly Y2. Last season for the third in a row we were away (last season at Grovians) This year we are away at Thorne for our first ever league meeting.
Looking forward to it.

well said Mr D. Without the aforementioned volunteers our game at grass roots level would totally implode.

Here here,
                   I think that Cornwall and Devon are also an exceptionally strong region as Yorkshire are.
RH  You make a fair point but I do concur with Dropkicker that our White Rose record stands scrutiny.
 Honiton were a very very capable side .

Yorkshire 2 / commiserations to Northallerton and Thorne
« on: May 06, 2019, 09:22:05 PM »
Just watched the whole game on video of Norths titanic game at Twickers on saturday. After trailing for 65 minutes they got in front 27 - 19 and were leading with 5mins to go 27-22 but their opponents Honiton from Devon (who had en even bigger pack than North) came back and scored with about 3 mins to go. It was a fantastic advert for our level between two teams almost inseperable. What a shame North had to lose, but they lost absolutely nothing in defeat. If they can reproduce that form next season they will be in contention to go up again as they have some quality players in key positions.
Also hard luck to Thornensians who were eventually well beaten by a well drilled side from Weybridge (also available on the same RFU video).
Best wishes and congratulations from all at North Ribb on reaching your respective finals and we wish you well in the future.

MK  I have ignored your ascerbic comments thus far, but feel that following your recent gutter post, you now at least deserve a response. To put the record straight the only other "Poster" on here that has had a go at me ( its allowed) is the equally myopic "Bulldog from the East" (I think you must be related) along with Hobbos post (who was also complimentary to Ribb). I think the general feeling is that Ribb are a very well liked club. From a personal point of view ,on reflection we have finished below where we expected, especially after a great start, but have no complaints. We have lost several games by a large margin deservedly so, and also some close ones that we should have won. Therefore deserve to be where we are. We have a lot of youngsters who have ,at times ,struggled with physicality and tackling, but, we have a our usual good spirit.
As to my comments from the end of last season, it was a message to all the clubs that we had enjoyed playing in their league and the marvelous hospitality (almost without exception other than an inedible Beef dinner at Moortown, ((they should change their Beef supplier)), and it was our intention to sometime in the future haul ourselves back to that distinguished level of club rugby in our marvellous county.
We know that we are not ready yet and there is work to do to arrest our recent decline, however, as a simple man I do not understand why MK directs his venom at us/me, as it is generally agreed on here that it is misdirected bull****.
Rather than having a chip on my shoulder, can I suggest that Little Knowledge, must have serious arthritis in his right shoulder from the continual weight of two potato sacks being strapped to it.
That must apply to the "Bulldog" and as his name suggests he comes from Driffield and I can only summise he is the supplier of such spuds.

Thats it all guys. I hope you all summer well and sincere best wishes for the play-offs and next season to everyone, even a couple of bitter people!!!

               I just hope that the North Premier are ready for Scarbs, as I know they will not be ready for the humerous, knowledgeable and ascerbic BRB.

Are there any Wensleydale posters on here. we are at Northallerton today on our last trip pof the season. W are thinking of having a bit of a crawl  down the dale home. I was wondering if we would be welcome to call in at your clubhouse and help you celebrate what should be a league winning crowning today. No problem if you have something organised and dont want us to spoil it. I just thought it is so long since we used to meet in friendly games and we will now be playing next year in the leagues for the first time, we could have a meeting of the "Dales". We should be in Leyburn about 7.30. Please let us know.
