Awful news re Manning. Thoughts to all that knew him, especially his little baby daughter :( from all at Hullensians RUFC

Ribb travelled to Wath yeaterday after being told the pitch would be playable by the time we got there. As is transpired it was still frozen in patches and , in ALL our lads opinion was not safe. We know Wath have suffered from the recent deluges close to their pitch, and we support them in the terrible issues that has brought both the club and some of their members. However our coach costs £450 and whatever condition the pitch was in at 2.00pm it must have been in a less good condition in terms of playing on it at 9.00am when we were informed that we were "Good to go".
My point is if a team are having to travel two and a half hours on an expensive coach the home team, IMHO, has a duty to call off the game if there is any doubt about it. As is stands now we will have to go again on the 21st Dec, which is no problem but will cost us another £450 as 75 miles is too far to ask lads to represent the club and drive.
A little disappointing from a Ribb perspective.

Unfortunate, bit like when Hullensians travelled to Ribb a few years ago, 4 hours there through diversions for flooded roads. To find the water lapping around our ankles when we got there! Trip home was even longer due to more flooding, a good drink was had by all though.

Drama at Springhead Lane. Knowing that Rish were winning, in the 79th minute Selby had a scrum on our 5m, we thought we were down. But we forced a turnover carried out to the 22, recycled the ball, put it through 6 pairs of hands then our winger scorched 3 Selby defenders to go in at the corner. Scenes.

Sums up our season. Well done to our lads for sticking at it. Hopefully we can kick on from this. It’s been a very tough year for us with limited resources. So over the moon to retain our Y1 status. Unlucky Rish, quite an effort to get 3 wins on the bounce at the end of the season, just glad we could match it!

Rish need a win against Moortown final game of the season, coupled with us losing at home to Selby, to see them safe.

We will be safe with any kind of win, or a Moortown victory.

Credit must go to Rish and us for pulling off 2 wins in 2 weeks, especially last week with away victories at Brods and Middlesbrough respectively. Neither are easy places to get wins!

Fully agree.

Nonsense like this that can influence a youngster wanting to play senior rugby, in a time where player numbers are on the wane.

What a croc of tosh, tell him to go train at Wigan RL he can play superleague at 16. School Sat morning, club 3/4th team Sat afternoon and colts on a Sunday. Too young, can't play so many minutes in a week, no wonder the ruddy sport as gone to prop and why every one under the age of 18 is over indulged snow flake. If Otley had not fessed up, would anyone have known, cared. Hope he had a good game.

Old Brodleians 25 Hullensians 24 (HT 5-24)
Brods kick penalty in last play of the match to win

Last week against Heath last play conversion from wide out to win the game goes wide, this week a last play pen gives Brods the win. Fine margins between safe in mid table and a relegation fight.

Hullensians’ big winger Uzzy Langford didn’t score for the first 3 games but then scored in the next 13 consecutively. Currently on 19. Not bad for a relegation threatened side

Another case of so close yet so far against one of the ‘big boys’ for Hullensians. Crocs, Boro and now Moortown have all given us hope of memorable victories in the face of adversity, yet we’ve been unable to get across the finishing line.

The game itself was a free scoring affair, with Moortown just edging it. Hullensians probably deserved a little more out it than the solitary point, but it’s another point closer to safety. With all the sides around us in the league having to travel to Springhead Lane there’s a long way to go. Winning is a habit though, one which we need to get addicted to again.

Classic case of referees seeing something a little out the ordinary (a really good massive hit), so they guess there must be an offence.

What’s frustrating is the refs guess work may have seen him dish out a card. Or worse give the opposition a shot at goal which could influence the game.

Wouldn’t be a game without them though....

Crocs with a penalty in injury time to take the win at Hullensians. Good game in which we absorbed a barrage of attack in the first half and only went in 5-7 at ht. A converted try and a pen saw us leading 15-14 with seconds to go, but an infringement within kicking distance saw us snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Perhaps deserved more than a point from the game but that’s how it goes.

And if any of you get promoted you're in for a shock!

I think we’re safe on that front!

Happy to nip this in the bud. Our regular scrum half was injured against Ponte a few weeks ago, and with no other specialist scrum half’s at the club have loaned Hull’s 3rd choice scrum half for a few weeks. Funnily enough this option wouldn’t have happened if Brid hadn’t blobbed on Hull. Also a winger who has been with Ionians 2nd team (never played first team) came training with us this week (off his own back), and due to several injuries played today. Would be nice if a few monster props/2nd rows/back rows came down to us instead!

In other news Ionians Bucs cried off last night against our 2’s, it was an away game though so I can see why.....

As for today’s game a lot of effort as usual from Hullensians, but ultimately Selby’s size upfront took its toll. Hopefully our first win is around the corner, no need to panic just yet. We always knew this season was going to be tough.
