Some strange results last weekend?

Any surprises at the half way point of the season?
Strange in what way?

Wensleydale host the quite frankly unruly leeds at home. The game last time saw spectators fuelled with booze behave in a un rugby and un sportsmanship way. Let’s hope they make a wise decision and leave certain supporters at home.

Perhaps you've yet to see the latest Disciplinary report??

I don't even know which club it is...I was told something cryptic and sent out the info to see what came.back.
Apparently there was a scooter rally in Brid at the weekend.

So how do teams deal with Regulation 6, 69 when Front Row replacements have to state which position they play and then if used, can only play in that (Front Row) position?

Thorne won, 20-24 according to RFU

Ripit - It is an odd one be interesting to hear clarification from a qualified ref

My understanding for what it is worth is - The first front row injury does not matter as they are replaced by replacement front row. If the next FR injury is a head injury, which results in unoctested scrums, then they can replace and stay at 15, but if it were not a head injury then they drop to 14. So in summary 1st FR injury a knee injury and 2nd a head injury you stay at 15 BUT if 1st a head injury and 2nd a knee injury you drop to 14.

It is a bit silly and certainly open to "gamesmanship" but comes down to player welfare.
And to add further confusion. We have Regulation 6, 69.
"...Prior to the match, each team must advise the appropriate Match Official of their front-row
players and possible front-row replacements and which position(s) in the front row they can play.
Only these players may play in the front row when the scrum is contested and only in their designated
Never seen it applied but it's there in the regs.

Again. I was giving an overview of the successes of a friday night game. Well supported, good takings which i imagine the question maybe asked one day by another club. 'Was a friday night game successful when you tried it? And i would say the overall opinion is yes, it was. I have not commented on lux and if it has to be a certain level then should be of that level. I have not stated anything to say different, just passed on some knowledge that friday night rugby could be measured as a success should a club be considering it or concerned less people may attend. I would suggest theybwpuld need floodlight or the required level which i am sure all people are aware of from the well written original post on the subject. My knowledge of the lux of sandal's floodlights is not any area of knowledge i would consider i require further knowledge of as i am not involved there.
I am well aware of the possible advantages of Friday night games. We've had them. But then, We paid a fortune to ensure we have lights that comply.
Roolz are da roolz. This thread stemmed from an email from the leagueSecretary. clearly someone is on the case. No one is stopping a club holding games on a night, apart from themselves if they don't comply.

I think Friday night rugby has a big future for lots of reasons not least for those mentioned by Wakefield4.
I'm not against it.
But to poo poo the regs on what is a safety issue, and one the RFU have flagged up is reckless.  God forbid someone gets injured,we know who the winners are then.

Again. I offered a summary of the evening and my own comments regarding my experience of playing and reffing under said lights.  If it was unsafe would the game not have been called off by the ref or would Heath have the option to say 'this is unsafe, we are not playing?'
Silly answer.
As a ref, or a visiting team, did you carry a lux meter with you?
The onus is squarely on the home team to comply.
Perhaps we should just comply with the Regs that suit at the time.?
What about Laws of the game. Are you flexible with them too?

Is a comment not allowed on here that a friday night game which i believe a few clubs are doing that drew a number of fans and takings seemingly a problem? For that side it appears a success, previously to this i did also say that the floodlights for a game at that level maybe harder with level of players. However, post pandemic where money is needed by clubs it is good to see a large turnout. That was a summary of the game i received including the acknowledgement that heath brought a lot of supporters with them.
Let's not worry about player safety then, as long as someone is pulling in  shilling.

Having played and reffed under the lights at both Sandal and Morley for 3rd and vets games, i would say potentially could be quite hard work for a first team game with better kickers etc under the lights. Good crowd for the Heath game and busier bar than a sat game i believe with Heath bringing a lot ao hope financially works well for clubs that go with the friday night fixtures. With cost of electricity etc i think i woukd kick off earlier to avoid using them on a saturday afternoon. Is it Otley that do not have floodlights (i could well be wrong.)

With regards to the pitch, was this sandal's? Need an 3 try lead normally when playing downhill first half.
Ah, so as long as the bar is busier, all is well ??
There is a lux level for a reason.

Not the lights that’s Sandals issue … clearly you haven’t seen the state of the main pitch … worst I think i’ve ever seen at this stage of season ..with rain it will look like Brids harbour … it’s a proper mess .
Alfie. Only seen it from driving past so couldn't possibly comment on pitch.
Regarding lights, i'm told a couple weren't even working. Apparently, wingers were on the field just that no one could see them.

Rugby convert......Your point about 2.15 kick off is exactly what I was highlighting. Morley always ask teams to kick off at 3pm as apparently their pre-match diners are unable handle a change of time to an earlier meal. I have no objection to this request, club can either say yes or no.  What I object to is how rubbish their floodlights are (unless they have been upgraded this summer). They wouldn’t be good enough to light a council car park!

If your lights aren’t up to standard don’t presume to play under them in competitive league matches.
I'm told by some who went to the Sandal v Heath game that was played on a Friday night that the lighting there was very poor.

Does anyone know why the unplayed games are not scheduled to be played until November and not this weekend?
Would that be November 19th?
Pretty sure the League secretary confirmed on Saturday that that day is protected and no games. We asked him due to the number of us going down to watch the ABs.
