Perhaps the 2nd team pitch is too narrow for Rish's expansive brand of rugby.......

Ponte v Crocs sounded like another cracker similar to the previous game at Crocs who build up a big lead and then allow Ponte back in it. Question or comment
for Gaz? in the first game if you had kept the ball in the scrums and played that out you would have got at least 1 pen try which might not have changed the result as you only just lost 31-29. In the 2nd game could you have done the same at the end as you would have been awarded 7 points rather than pick and go, score and have the conversion to win it. Just a thought as Crocs defence in the 1st game was outstanding when you had picked up from the base of the scrum but did you have to?


2 games refereed differently I guess, I reckon one more penalty in the scrum last week and it'd have been 7 under the sticks, however we pushed it over. The ref last week is a former prop and very good in the dark arts of scrummaging, good in general really.


At your place, there was some very nefarious back row skullduggery that enable your lads to ruin any chances and these were missed. I wouldn't fancy reffing a scrum without TJs, too many places to watch for one person to adjudicate. Also your scrum magically ran out of front row so we went uncontested which makes it very hard to work the back row. Can't grumble about last week's result though, we were poor and didn't justify the draw.

Dinn 28 - ponte 26

Strange game to watch and stranger refs decisions!




A very bizarre game that's for sure. Quite strange hearing the home crowd berating a referee for sin-binning away team players. Not really sure what was going on most of the time.


More importantly, how's the young lad who went to hospital? Hoping it was just over-caution and he's fine today.

The problem with Moortown is that it doesn't suit the elitist mentality of what a Rugby Union club should be. It's a bit rough round the edges and some of the lads didn't go to boarding school.

When a club like this does well it gets ripped to shreds and that in turn creates a fortress mentality from some people at the club, a bit of "everyone hates us and we don't care" attitude.

From what I know of Moortown, it's a well run, well attended rugby club, giving loads of kids from rough areas of Leeds a chance to play Rugby. A tough place to go and get a result at and a bunch of lads who'll stick together no matter what.

Keep doing what ever it is you're doing Carl and let the raa-raa upper crust frown on you, I've been at clubs on that side of the fence and it's a good feeling when you get to beat them.

Let's see what Burnsy has to say if things aren't going his way today.


Thought the ref was fantastic today, did well to keep a lid on pretty volatile first half.


Not sure why you'd think I'd be upset at a referee if we'd have lost, I didn't think I was known for that.

Ponte 24-25 Town 😬😬😬


Cracking game to be fair. 2 teams out to play rugby in a good spirit. Gutted to lose out but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Yes, a hard game at Heaton yesterday.
What would help is the Ponte coaching team familiarising themselves with Regulation 13. Specifically 13..7.6
Constantly on the pitch coaching and advising. And no, carrying a bottle of water doesn't give you permission.


Strange that, I only remember the ref asking Salem's coach to get back into the technical area because he was berating him so much and with that, the coach took a big step over the railings and stood in the crowd and continued to berate the ref. I suppose if you only have one "dug-out", it's hard to have both teams sharing the same space.


It was a good, tough (very tough, some monster tackles and runs), game. Two evenly matched teams and I thought Salem won because they hard more fight and desire to do so.

It will be interesting to see how the Croatian boys settle!

It must be fairly demoralising coming through the B and B colts to see all the imports being parachuted in!

No doubt they will seek senior rugby elsewhere?


If you're a colt who is upset by new players and coaching rather than take on board the advice and the challenge of getting amongst those new players, it's probably best they do move on to a new team.

is this a relevant conversation- I appreciate you were a great playerBurns. But I’d be interested to see what impact that will have in Yorks 1 in 2018!


Relevant 10 year ago old lad. Have next to no impact these days. Young man's game now

Could we just stick to discussing the nuances of me playing at Ponte and how much of a good egg I am, as opposed the historical stuff?
