I went to watch South Leicester last season.

It was the game just before Christmas against Leicester Lions with a Pre-match meal on. The crowd was 120. Half of them stayed in the club finishing their Xmas pudding.

The club house resembles a L9/L10 set up - probably most resembles Hemsworth's if that helps. They have one senior team (3 pitches) paid for a benefactor and nothing else, no juniors. Given they only got relegated near end of the season and didn't finish bottom of N2N all I can assume is he and his money have walked. If they can keep going I would imagine L8/L9 is where they may stop plummeting.

On a slightly different note,anybody know what has happened to the Disciplinary meetings.I cant find any referance on the Yorks RFU pitchero site? Surely someone must have been sent off this year?!

It's at the bottom of the YRFU home page in the dark blue bit at the bottom of the safeguarding list.

Wath 25-24 Ripon

Posting this to try and generate a bit traffic on Y2 board - 2 posts last week on results, none this week.


Close as the score suggests. Lead changed hands a couple of times and Ripon scored an interception try in dying minutes. A successful conversion would have given Ripon the lead but it drifted wide and Wath ran down the clock.

Yorkshire 2 / Y2 - 15th Dec 18 - Game(s) off.

I would echo all the above both personally and on behalf of YRS.

I refereed OR just after the Christmas break and have enjoyed their hospitality for many years.

Condolences to family, friends and team-mates at this sad time.

Mini & Junior Rugby / Yorkshire v Lancashire - U15 Girls
« on: November 20, 2017, 10:53:37 AM »
Refereed this yesterday at Thornensians.

Yorkshire ran out to 26-0 lead at HT but the Red Rose County battled back in the 2nd half and made it more of a contest. Finished 45-17.

Both teams were well coached (a testimony to their clubs too) and Yorkshire especially ran, passed and supported exceedingly well. Hardly any kicking, hardly any lineouts - just running Rugby.

Squad of 20 odd were from 14 Yorkshire clubs.

Big crowds saw Yorkshire win both the U15 and U18 fixtures against Lancashire.

Back refereeing in Y2 after trips to D&N and Liverpool recently.

Refereed Yarnbury v Goole today.

The game was preceded by a minute's silence for a Yarnbury member and former 1st team captain who had unexpectedly passed away earlier in the week. The two teams were joined by players and officials from Yarnbury and Sheffield 2nds.

Yarnbury took an early 12 pt lead which left Goole with too much to do and despite winning the second half Goole finished on the losing side. Final score 31-22, 5 tries to 4.

Thanks to Jim and Rhys and their teams for the game and to the good folk of Yarnbury for their hospitality.

Those I spoke to afterwards said the game was a good watch and there were some well executed, long range tries scored.

Also bumped into Kronos47 who was there with Sheffield 2nds.

Dinnington's pie and peas and gravy etc is wonderful.

Other Senior Rugby / Re: Should we ban tackling and scrums in schools?
« on: September 28, 2017, 02:04:55 PM »
I personally think the problem with kids rugby is the level of coaching. Poorly qualified or even unqualified coaches teaching kids poor techniques. More money should be made available to ensure more fully qualified coaches are available to young players to ensure proper techniques are coached which would hopefully lead to less serious injuries.

Good point however players such as Leigh Halfpenny who has not been short of qualified coaches during his career still manages to get his head on the wrong side (most of the time) when tackling and never seems to go very long without ending up being scanned and/or hospitalised.

I appreciate we are talking about children at school but as a general point the adult game is a lot more physical than when I played.

Kids are generally not well prepared for Rugby via state school coaching only imo. There are some exceptions and I know of at least one school my lad played against which was run by an interested dad who was a player of a very good standard. I suspect if it wasn't for him the school wouldn't have had a team at those year groups or maybe worse a poorly coached side? Dunno.
