It seems like a poor mentality from Calderdale's premier rugby club. There was a chance they would struggle so they didn't even bother showing up. Feel bad for players that lose out on opportunities to play on Saturday's and develop because of this selfish attitude and the opportunities to play cup rugby. It also shows a potential lack of support for the development of young players. If they didn't want to take the cup as seriously they could have given valuable playing time to younger or less experienced players. Anyway, that's just my opinion. I'm sure many will disagree.
not sure that the thought of struggle was the reason for not bothering to turn up.as already stated at least 5 of the normal 2nd team would have had to play in the cup game,as you say a good opportunity to test themselves.and in normal circumstances that might have happened.but last Saturday was a 2nd team merit league game for the top place between Heath and rishworthians so many of
The second would rather play in that.also our third team would have been depleted and not played.the third team played Halifax vandals.and at least 200 spectators turned for a wonderful day of competitive rugby.we at Heath try to make sure all teams are treated equally.its not all about a first team.a point of contention though about the behaviour of a couple of rishie players.they tried to poach our tea ladies,home made shepherds pie went down well.

Cup games are fantastic and it is an added bonus at the end of the season to win one. Such as Brods last year. They finished 7th in the league so winning the cup against Heath softened the blow significantly I’m sure. But when the entire from row and many other players are carrying injuries it is unwise to pursue a cup when the primary focus of the club is promotion. I’m sure you all understand this clearly and are just enjoying a bit of Anti-Heath fun. Please continue as the members of Heath are kind and will never look down on those less fortunate. Halifax’s premier rugby club gives regularly to charity and will always support Other clubs and their anti-Heath views.. For example when a local player broke his neck a few years ago all the Heath players contributed and when a local clubs showers stopped working Heath allowed them and Bridlington to use their facilities. I can see why so many clubs are angry, to suffer such generosity at the hands of a Heathen. I’m sure Heath are deeply sorry for the pain they have caused by pulling out of the cup. So very selfish as usual.

Congrats? I would expect all clubs in the Rugby family to have charity events and help others in the community in times of need. It's got nothing to do with what I was on about so I don't see why you've brought it up. It's not a competition. I get the feeling that this whole situation of trying to avoid a potential loss on the pitch matches with what we're starting to hear beyond the borders of Calderdale about the high horse Heath have placed themselves on. I love to see some confidence and wish them the very best in the league for the rest of this season but looking down on clubs and cup competitions won't gain you many friends.

Heath have not placed themselves on a high horse, they have placed themselves 2nd in the league. Mainly through hard work and player development over the last 5 years. You suggest that Heath neglect player development by not playing a cup game, i can see your point, however a player develops by playing with and against better players in a competitive game. Not by getting hammered and potentially injured. Heaths youth will have plenty of opportunities for development if they reach the next level. But clearly you have a very blinkered view and I will not waste anymore time debating this topic. I attempted to share a bit of humour in my previous post, just to brighten up the dull and depressing Anti-Heath chat. You suggest Heath act in a manner which improves their ability to gain friends? Appreciate the advice. Friend?

Hell of a lot of teams over the last few years have pulled out of the cup for numerous reasons,I’m not sure they received the grief on this page that heath have.Nice to know that people for some unknown reason feel threatened by a little club like heath.

Aireborough came at us hard and fast and made it very difficult around the rucks, took the lads a while to get use to the Artful Dodgers of Yeadon pick pocketing every ball when they had to the chance. Luckily the boys snapped into things and played some very good liquid rugby towards the end of the 1st half but after we had scored our two tries Aire chuffing came at us hard, unfortunately for them they was met by the Great Wall of Croatia who didn't let anything past, thankfully the ref blew for half time at last to the delight of the worms, I'm sure Aire wouldn't have minded carrying on playing. Second half started with Aire up for it and Knottla still up their own backsides thinking about that amazing defence and thats how we stayed throughout that second half, I was flabbergasted when we scored 3 tries to say we looked like we were the ones bottom of the league in that second half. All credit to Aire though, they made it very hard at times. P.s Gums, can we have a new kicker now????
