Regional Two (North & North East) / Man plans, God laughs......
« on: February 09, 2024, 08:12:13 AM »
So it seems that the elements are not keen on this round of matches. Pitch inspections all round again tomorrow.....

Can anyone remember a wetter winter??

I've been told by a reliable source that  Rochdale have been "not invited back" to the Crown Spa Hotel following an overnight stay after the Scarborough match. This was due to nudity in the hotel lobby/public areas and belly flop championship competition on Sunday morning in the spa pool!

🤣🤣🤣🤣 Brings back memories!

But tut tut...

Gateprop as a new Mod for Y1..

Yorkshire 3 / New Mod
« on: June 29, 2023, 06:46:18 AM »
Hello Y3

Now that Gateprop has moved onto Y2 and then again onto Y1...we really could do with a replacement Mod for Y3.

Anyone sensible fancy helping keep an eye on matters here and enforce rugby values?

Either post on here or PM me please.

Regional Two (North & North East) / We need to talk about....

....the league structure.

I think to be fair to the organisers of the cup competitions I think we should let them run their course and see how it goes.

However as things stand at present, I'm of the opinion that the change to 12 team leagues from 14 has been an unmitigated disaster.

We've had teams finishing the league season early March and then having weeks to wait before being drawn away 100's of miles away in a cup.

Other clubs have had become entangled between cup and league and are having to play Easter Saturday.

Like I said earlier let's see how the cups pan out but unless they turn out to be supremely successful I think we should start lobbying for a return to 14 team leagues.

These views are my own and don't represent a collective decision of my club...it hasn't been discussed formally yet. The players may think differently??

Id be keen to hear the views of everyone, officials, supporters and players.

It will be interesting to hear from clubs at all levels (maybe I should have put in Other Rugby)

Regional Two (North & North East) / Week 11
« on: November 23, 2022, 08:29:39 PM »
Firstly please can I express my profound sadness and sympathy following the death of Tom Edwards, captain of Selby RUFC.

I think a minutes silence at every match in the league would be appropriate this weekend as a mark of respect at the loss of a member of the rugby family at such a young age.

Bradford & Bingley v Selby - RIP Tom Edwards, no prediction.

Bridlington v Scarborough
A typical local derby where all form goes out the window. Scarborough on a good run and Brid doing OK with a mixed bag of results. Few people will bet against Brid at home in a local derby - although I'll always back Scarborough. Should be a cracker.

Dronfield v Pontefract
Not sure about this but think Pnte should get a close win.

Malton and Norton v Pocklington
High scoring home win for Malton, not sure where Pocks next win is going to come from.

Moortown v Old Crossleyans
Interesting one here. I'm tempted to go for a draw but I think Moortown should just about pip it.

Old Brodleians v Morley
Easy win for Bords.

Good rugby everyone.

Regional Two (North & North East) / Run-in to Christmas at the top
« on: November 13, 2022, 07:26:26 AM »
There is going to be a very interesting run-in to Christmas with all the top sides having a pick of difficult fixtures to contend.

All the top 5 or 6 will lose games between now and the end of the season. With teams beating each other and the top three spots changing regularly.

Having looked at all the fixtures I think the next four rounds will give us a pretty clear picture as we enter the festive period of who is going to be the top 3 at the end of season.

Others can comment on their own clubs but from a Scarborough perspective having Brid and Moortown away and Malton and Morley at home its a bloody tough run.

Bridlington, Scarborough and Malton all seem pretty even with Moortown a step ahead. Morley aren't quite cutting it yet this season. To get 3 wins from 4 would be outstanding, maybe 2 from 4 more realistic. Less than that and we are out of the race.

Don't worry folks everything will be fixed shortly we've just been dealing with a few back-end issues but should be resolved pretty soon

Regional Two (North & North East) / Week 9
« on: November 04, 2022, 06:49:31 AM »
Bradford & Bingley v Pontefract
I can't really see anything other than a large away win here. Let's just hope Bradford keep putting a side out. What happened to that rugby league bloke who was supposed to be coaching them?

Bridlington v Pocklington
Interesting one this with talk of prawn cocktails and mobility scooters distracting Brid could they come unstuck?? I don't think so, they should have too much for Pock at home.

Dronfield v Old Crossleyans
Crocs doing better and if the so called king Kong is playing they will make a fist of it... however I'm still going for a home win for Dron but not by much

Malton and Norton v Morley
Malton will be buzzing after snatching the naan bread with the last play for the pickle tray last week at the MBC. I can see them taking that confidence into a big home win against Morley.

Old Brodleians v Moortown
Right I'm going to make a big call here. Subject to Brods getting a decent side out I'm going for them to have a impressive win against the travelling saagmen. It's due to be wet and I thought the brods pack were pretty decent at silver Royd last week. Controversial I know but I can see them sneaking this one.

Selby v Scarborough
Form should say that Scarborough should win this but Selby have had a few impressive wins and are strong at home..

Sadly I'm away in the Lakes so miss out on the entertainment at Selby.

Good luck to all.

Regional Two (North & North East) / Run in with Hells Angels
« on: November 01, 2022, 07:56:36 PM »
I've been told that two players from overseas at a particular club in the league are being sent home after a run in with a biker gang..

Apparently they may have got into a fight and messed up the wrong person and are now wanted by the gang.

This sounds rather ridiculous and far fetched but I'm told that it's actually true. That's going to leave one team missing two players from their pack.

Anyone shed any light???
