Other Senior Rugby / FEEDING
« on: April 10, 2019, 03:44:50 PM »
I watched a game in North East1 last Saturday where the ref performed well in my opinion and was consistent throughout in hisinterpretation of the laws, however it made me wonder how the application of feeding into the scrums is not replicated by not straight in the line out. He applied “not straight” on a number of occasions but not once for  “feeding” despite the scrum halves often putting it on to the props toes. It got me thinking that elf n safety is the motivating factor in the scrum but it’s not a problem when a bloke is hoisted above two other blokes heads in a precarious position whilst the opposition try to knock him down.

Has anybody any views on this or even knowledge of the rationale behind the feeding of scrums?

North Premier / How’s the amalgamation going along
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:40:31 AM »
With both Hull and Hull Ionians both topping their respective leagues the noises emanating around a coming together appear to have dried up, does that indicate that there has never really been any formal discussions and it was just Back Street Bungler at his mischevious best?

Hopefully Hull will be able to continue in this position and make the step up next season. I think promotion for them would be a positive advertisement for rugby union in the city which comes a poor second to the league format and could do with a boost.

Yorkshire 2 / WHATS HAPPENED TO THE GOOLIGANS?

Are any others missing Insider?

The only one posting seems to be Yiphee who must have found his way out of the swamps at Yorkfleet, and he only seems intent on upsetting young(ish) Mr Moore regarding his trips to Slimming World.

I wonder if they have had a gagging order placed upon them or could it be that all those wind machines have finally and totally surrounded the flat lands and they are encased in some supernatural force field which inhibits the use of modern technology. If so I bet the cost of pigeons will rise significantly

Yorkshire 1 / How many Rugby League players play union out of season?
« on: September 30, 2012, 04:09:13 PM »
I wonder how many Y1 teams have current or past professional RL players playing for them? I remember John Bentley recruited a number for Cleckheaton some years ago with varying success levels so do others think they find it hard to adjust, particularly if they have not played Union before?

Yorkshire 1 / KICK OFF AND RE-STARTS
« on: November 06, 2011, 12:11:54 PM »
Having watched numerous games this season I got round to wondering, "where is the best place to aim for at KOs and re-starts to create the best possible advantage for your team"?

In the games I have watched in Y1 most of the kickers have gone for the short 12m and in between the lineout marks but is this the best place?
