Excellent welcome and hospitality today at Morley. A good number for a pre-match lunch with plenty of rugby chat and even a bit of Brexit discussion with the local MP in attendance.

Fair result in a real England v Scotland rematch.

Morley raced to a bonus point lead within 14 mins and then Scarborough woke up. Had we shown a bit more composure with final passes and not had a needless red card, the ultimate comeback was likely. It was not to be.

Good day all round, would have preferred a win or a second bonus point but not a disaster.

As I said earlier, excellent ref.

All to play for top and bottom.

morriarty, I know you are frustrated but please stop with the bull.

The penalty was around 5m in from touch on the 22 on the right hand side ...with the breeze, which was coming and going, going from left to right towards the scoreboard. It was an Incredibly tough kick for a  right footed kicker with potential league status on the line.

The scrum was solid all game when we had a full 8, the only exception being when there was a prop in the bin and malton had a pushover and the ill fated final scrum.

In hindsight, the tap penalty would have been the safer option but hey ho if I could sell hindsight I would be the richest man in the world.

That does make a bit more sense..

We lost 39-31. On way back will post later.

Another 5 mins and we would probably have won BUT very fair result. Red card for Scarborough - fully deserved both by the law and also that it was such a girly puffy slap!!!!

Excellent referee and a good day.
Great use of homophobic language "girly puffy slap", its 2019...

Ammended so as not to melt your virtuous snowflake.

So they had a kick in front of the posts with the last kick of the game....they are losing by 2 and CA a scrum???

I really don't get how anyone could make that call - unless I've misunderstood the circumstances...

A considered post. Obviously I would disagree with most of it but everyone observes the same events from different perspectives.

Over the last couple of decades Scarborough have had plenty of practice of losing with dignity!

I could provide you a 20 minute forensic video which clearly explains the reaction of the players and crowd..... however the matter is closed.

As a club we will give feedback to the referees society at the end of season.

I can see both sides.
On a small point if order, 16 and 17 year olds can sign up to the army at 16 but are not permitted to join active service until 18.

I would say the issues to take into account and will have an influence on sentence are:

1) did the club willingly break the rules?
2) the duration of the offence, i.e. 5 mins at the end of a 3rd team match or 5 1st XV appearances.
3) if the matter was uncovered by the club or by others
4) if the club offered the information to the authorities.
5) the processes and procedures put in place to prevent it happening again.

There's enough variation above to suggest a wide range of sentence.

Also I think we all have to get used to the idea of senior rugby being for 18 and above shortly. From a safeguarding perspective there are numerous risks to children (by law) playing, changing and socialising with adults.
