Yorkshire 2 / Pre-Season Friendlies
« on: July 15, 2024, 02:02:34 PM »
Ripon now have a full pre-season schedule with an eclectic mix of Harrogate Pythons and Thirsk to keep the local vibe going and a testimonial v Barnard Castle for our lad who broke his neck in the PJC semi final - a former pupil of the school and club member. Who I might add, is doing well and joining the Ripon coaching team.

What's everyone else up to?

Having an arranged match cancelled, Ripon are seeking a potential pre-season warm up match on Saturday 24th August against opposition from Y1 or R2NE. Looking at a cup tie sized 1st XV squad (22ish players) and prepared to travel. Any interest in principle back to me in the first instance and I can connect to right people at my end.

Yorkshire 2 / Pizza Cup Semi-Finals 04/05/24

Still a fair smattering of Yorkshire's finest chasing the stuffed crust and jalapeno bite dream. Just for fun and giggles any predictions welcome:

Heath v York
Northampton Old Scouts v Selby
Goole v Malton & Norton
Bradford Salem v Pocklington
Old Rishworthian v Beverley
Ripon v Southport
Rotherham Phoenix v Wallsend
York RI v Hornsea

Heath v York: Will the pitch pass the safety inspection? Heath -7
NOS v Sell By: Could there be a guest appearance from Courtney Lawes to spice things up? Sticking with Yorkie success Selby -7
Goonies v M&N: Fancy Goole here +7
BS v Pock: No BS on show here and just go with home advantage Bradford -7
Rish v Bev: Home advantage here Rish -7
Ripon v Southport: Ripon on a roll +7
Rotherham Phoenix v Wallsend: Yorkshire again Phoenix +7
York RI v Hornsea: Shame there has to be a winner her, but going with home RI -7

Yorkshire 2 / Pizza Cup next rounds 27/04/24
« on: April 23, 2024, 04:48:22 PM »
A few left in if anyone fancies a punt just for fun?

Wetherby v Bradford Salem: Clash of the titans here and probably fed up of playing each other by now. Going with home advantage for Wetherby -7

Wath Upon Dearne v Veseyans: No idea what they are like now but V's from Sutton Coldfield used to be the bete noir of my old home side. Keen to see Wath do well here +7

Ripon v Yarnbury: These two sides leapfrogging each other during the season and ran it close to the end. Ripon at home and believe they want it more, Ripon +7

Bramley Phoenix v Dinnington: Similar situation to above and the Big Apple have a formidable reputation at home. BP +7

Northallerton v Wigan: Both teams had grandstand finishes to their seasons and on the way up. Got to go with supporting neighbours (for now). North -7

Rotherham Phoenix v Bury: Yorkshire all the way. RP -7

Wallsend v Burley: As above, Burley +7

York RI v Hornsea: Shame there has to be a winner here, so go with the underdogs. RI -7

Yorkshire 2 / Pizza Cup Round 2 Results
« on: April 21, 2024, 05:25:10 PM »
There's loads more on the RFU site but for the sake of my sanity and workload management, I will stick to chatting about cup games either noted on this Y2 Forum or the Y2 WhatsApp group.

Results seen were:

Ashington 17 - Ripon 78
Bramley 23 - HLH 20
Horden & Peterlee 17 - 22 Wath
Dinnington 46 - 35 Hoylake

Ripon systematically destroyed the third best team in Counties 2 D&N this weekend after similarly disposing of promoted runners up Darlington last week. Pre and post-match hospitality were marvelous and the game was played in good spirit throughout. With twelve tries to three, the score line belied the efforts of the hosts, particularly at scrum time but showed Ripon's fitness and pace in all other areas of the game. A notable mention was a man of the match performance to the Colts' Scrum Half with a four try bonanza on his senior debut. One to watch for the future and sorry, name withheld for safeguarding reasons. Looking forward to hosting Yarnbury next weekend for what will be a sterner test all round.

Apologies for any teams left out, any further contributions to this thread before we pack up for the summer are every welcome. All the best to everyone still left in the competition, except Yarnbury of course!

Yorkshire 2 / Cup Campaigns
« on: April 03, 2024, 10:04:42 AM »
Not sure who is in what cup campaigns for the rest of the season but if anyone is interested in making predictions for Pizza Cup scores and outcomes, I am happy to run a separate cup competition just for giggles. Just let me know and I'll set something up.

Yorkshire 2 / Week 25 Predictions (06/04/24)
« on: April 03, 2024, 08:22:24 AM »
Here we go chaps, still a fair deal to play for at both ends now. More pride at the top and survival at the bottom.

Bramley Phoenix v Roundhegians
Hemsworth v Dinnington
Ossett v Huddersfield Laund Hill
Ripon vNorth Ribblesdale
Wath Upon Dearne v Leeds Corinthians
Yarnbury v Baildon

Yorkshire 3 / Ups and Downs
« on: March 25, 2024, 08:35:20 AM »
Looking forward to welcoming Northallerton and Halifax Vandals back to Y2 next season. Looks like you both have relatively straightforward final games, though I bet the Thirsk v Northallerton will be a right ding dong!

Sad to se Shmeds declining and based on form and standings, though it's as tight as a nun's nether regions in the lower half of the table, suspect Barnsley will have the least favourable result and will face the drop too.
