The only point I would make is that there probably are some clubs in the lower leagues that may prefer 12 team leagues BUT only if a meaningful cup competition continues. Which seems unlikely.


Not true. Our club is currently in the lower leagues (Y2) & we wholeheartedly support 12 team leagues. This support is not dependent on cup competitions in any existing or potential formats, the cups are and will remain irrelevant. I am aware of several other clubs at, below and above our level who share our views, which we have shared with the pertinent decision makers within the RFU.

"Endorsements" will be starting to go in now, presumably. Think a significant number of clubs, particularly in the lower Yorkshire leagues, and even more particularly those reflecting the preference of unpaid players & coaches, as opposed to Alickadoos, will still back the concept of fewer league games (option Y). And no, not to make space for Cup games. The cups in their current guise are dead.

Number of teams clubs are putting out falling. Fixtures below 1st team increasingly not being fulfilled. Player numbers/appearances per season falling. It IS broke so it DOES need fixing. Therefore status quo surely can't be the answer, can it? (Repeating a mistake & expecting a different result defining insanity etc.)

If the Luddites win the day & nothing changes, I wonder what the Old Guard insisting they have a League game to watch every single week will do when there are no players & therefore games left to watch?

Just an opinion. Others available & equally valid.

I said revised cup, 10s or 7s at beginning and end of season.

I do pity you as you seem to enjoy trying to foster conflict where there needs to be none. Perhaps avinatetleys would be rather more appropriate as you do sound rather bitter on most of your posts.

Or perhaps you just need a sherman. I'm sure the lads at your club have got plenty of material if you need any help.

Superb effort Dan!

Agree option Y with 12 team leagues looks like best option. Shame it's not going to apply at Y1. Also reckon it'll get support from a few clubs in Y2 as it will probably mean no relegation & multiple club promotion this year. Let's see if this gets through.. It's about fewer league games & IT'S GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH CUP COMPS!!!.

Well given some haven’t had more stash than a t shirt 3 seasons ago and quite often they don’t hang around or if they do they decline drink...yes I do.

Pay?  You think we pay second and third team players?  Do you know what you sound like?

Yes. Given the rfu interviewed the club and advertised our student package in their touchline magazine a few months ago, we’re pretty confident it’s all good with them. 

The students in our seconds, thirds and fourths get the same deal. It’s about getting lads of all standards playing not about trying to poach the good uni players.

No match fees, free travel to training and games, free stash, free beer. A fine distinction between that and paying players if you ask this humble observer.

One student in ones squad. This lad doesn’t even drink, he got a free t shirt last season as he’s been with us a few years and he got a lift to goole. Yeah, that’s paying players isn’t it?

Another win for 11 in a row for Leo’s away at top of league, Goole. One of our best periods of rugby in first half to make it 24 - 3 at the break.  Epic defence and some strong finishing making the difference. Goole came back strong in and had the majority of possession in second half.  They got over the line twice but each time we made them work hard for the scores and in the end they were never close to catching. 30-17 at full time. Frustrating to not get a bonus point and we took a conversion to go 2 tries plus a penalty in the clear rather than kick to corner. Shows respect to the opposition that we felt we needed to make to that choice.

Exchange ref from Liverpool had a good game. Many Goole supporters will disagree.  One of the most one sided touch lines I’ve ever witnessed.  Embarrassing to spend your Saturdays screaming at a referee.

Also sad to hear comments from goole players and spectators that Leo’s are only doing well because we are paying students apparently.  For the record we actually only had one student in the 18 man squad yesterday.  We did have two lads in the squad who were students last season and came through our recruitment plan and who are now in full time employment, have stayed in Leeds and pay their full memberships like everyone else. No one will ever be paid to play at Leo’s. 

We attract students by subsidising their memberships, organise transport so it’s easy to get to games and training, arrange for some stash so they are part of the club and those members who can afford it are encouraged to buy the students jugs of beer on Saturdays.  We also welcome them and create a culture they can enjoy and want to be a part of which is the real secret.

We had a second and third team with a healthy mix of experience and student youth playing at home and both recording strong wins. Interestingly our seconds who played harrogate pythons were accused of fielding half of our first team. Remarkable really when the actual first team had a top of the table clash at the same time.

Haters gonna hate.

I didn’t argue there shouldn’t have been a penalty try.  Just thought the point was overly made in the report meant as merry jibe.

I would strongly argue with one yellow card decision though that was actually in your 22nd and less contentious. Our player went down with a pulled hamstring. He was face down and your players leg touched his. He was not even looking, moreover the ensigns players on pitch didn’t appeal for foul play. Yet our guy limped off with a yellow not knowing what he’d done wrong. For the record I don’t think the other yellows were as clear cut tries hence no PT. I think there was some balancing up in 2nd half that we played nearly not ever with 15 and at one point with 12.  As ever these things are subjective.
