Spot on. We live in the realities of 2023, not 1963.

Amused that in 2023 we are still obsessing about payments to players.

Way back in the early 70's - long before the game went officially pro - I was fortunate to play for Camb Uni against the invitation Steele Bodgers XV. After the game, a well known former international went round the SB team asking for "expense" requests. A Welsh prop asked for the equivalent of a week's wages, which he was paid there and then in cash without a second's hesitation.

Whether expenses, direct payments or anything else you want to call it, it always has and always will happen. Time to get over it I think? Club committees make up their own minds. If their members don't like it, there's always an AGM at which they can vote....

All part of the Rope A Dope master plan (the meaning of which is known to those of a certain age.)

He’s probably away quaffing cheap plonk somewhere hot gents. Am sure he will welcome your offers once his head clears.


You are quite correct RH, and I thank you for your offer.  I did put the session forward and nothing was forthcoming, but I have not forgotten the generous offer and if you would allow me, I would like to try again. It is still the same as you have experienced.

More than happy to help, though have to say my experience over many years is that those in most need of help are those who don't think they need it!

“Very aggressive on the sidelines from spectators and coaches. Win at all costs feeling. Shouting for every decision.”

I was approached to deliver my Managing Officials presentation by one of their own members. Their committee never took it up.

Already done it.

Rochdale - if you think Moortown has issues, wait till you go there!

There is a problem though - look at the Poll posted by BRB elsewhere and there is no overwhelmingly clear majority for anything. If the views of Yorkshire are so divided I suspect the RFU may look at this as a reason not to do anything other than what they want? Just saying...

Leaders who don’t listen are eventually surrounded by people with nothing to say.

Think all of that has been discussed for years. Whilst some good ideas, not as simple as it looks.

Making Union into a summer sport will drain off all League players who turn to Union in the winter though, not to mention those who like cricket.

No easy answer, no quick fix I’m afraid.

Well carltj, the fact remains that the senior amateur game in 2022 is rapidly haemorrhaging players, regardless of the numbers of mini/youth. (Historically the numbers of them then transitioning to senior teams has also had a high attrition rate anyway.)

What do YOU think the reason is, and how would YOU reverse it?

Interesting that both clubs whose members said they had a problem and needed it and would would pass details on to "the committee" never took it up!

It's been that way for a couple of decades at least. Nothing to prevent it if that's what your club wants. All clubs have AGM's where members can vote.....
