Hi All

All ok here in Burn, Selby

Wife is in charge of Infection & Prevention for Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust based at Pinderfields Wakefield, i'm sure you can image the stress of her job at the moment so me and the lads are trying to support her the best we can. Loveley the other night to see the clapping for the NHS. Mother in law is in a nursing home with NO visitors allowed but that's a wise decision. I'm working from home and relying on Microsoft Teams (recommend it) and Zoom to contact work colleagues. I'm a commercial mortgage broker and the world has gone crazy with some lenders not wanting any more new applications but others still very much open for business. Getting plenty of chipping practice in the back garden. The major stress and one which is taking up a load of my spare time is to manage our rugby club through these uncharted territories, not easy, but we have saved for a rainy day, we have pulled summer work forward and we are exploring all government based assistance. With prudent management we should be ok, but who knows how long this will last..

Take care everyone and stay safe

if this decision was down to me and me alone and dont forget my club is Selby and we are going nowhere in Y1 so i feel its a neutral view, i would do the following:
* 80-85% of the season already gone so unfair to Null and Void
* Start the end of the 2019/20 season in September 20
* first 4 matches to conclude the season 2029/20
* Allow promotion and relegation to happen
* Commence the new 2020/21 season in mid to late October 20
* Run the season until 2nd week in May 21
* Cancel all National and domestic cup competitions

Yorkshire 1 / Yorkshire 1 Dream Team (2019/20 Season)
« Last post by MyPennysWorth on March 27, 2020, 10:46:17 PM »
Now that the season has officially come to a close I thought it would be a good opportunity for people to put forward their version of the Yorkshire 1 best 15. After watching the majority of teams in some way shape or form this year this would be my pick:

1. Benny Pritchett (Old Brodleians)
2. Liam Stapley (Old Brodleians)
3. Chris Moore (Heath)
4. James Green (Bradford Salem)
5. Declan Penny (West Leeds)
6. Jacob Robinson (Selby) / Makaffi (Salem)
7. Goole 7 - with the blonde hair - unaware of his name
8. Rob Jennings (Old Brodleians)
9. Ed Cockcroft (Old Crossleyans) / Rob Smith (Beverley)
10.  Phil Duboulay (Beverley) / Dan Cole (Heath)
11. Elijah Chitoyo (West Leeds)
12. Ezra Hinchliffe (Heath)
13. Phillip Town (Old Brodleians)
14. Michael Briggs (Old Brodleians)
15. Luke Hazel (Beverley) / Christopher Gorgiou (Old Brodleians)

I am duly aware that Liam Stapley from Old Brodleians moved on but he was the best I saw early season! Whatever the outcome produced by the RFU it’s been another fantastic year for Yorkshire 1 Rugby with all sides showing competitiveness at some stage. So we now await the 2020/21 season, whatever that may entail!

Other Senior Rugby / Re: Next season

If rugby did the same surely any red cards or other disciplinary matters would also be reversed.
As far as Saracens are concerned they are relegated owing to multiple seasons of over stepping the salary cap.

The Saracens penalty was in a few parts. The 2nd part that relegated them was specifically related to being over the salary cap this season, the initial penalty was for previous seasons transgressions.

All's well in York, apart from the council still allowing the contractors to work on the community stadium that is already several years

late.

I'm retired apart from 10 days a year part time as a non exec vice chair of a friendly society. Our London meetings are now video

conferences/ telephone/ e mail however we can contact.  Like all other friendly societies our investments are several £m down.

Our staff (only 5 ) are working from home in various parts of the W Midlands

and staying safe. I'm self isolated for the foreseeable future, but able to get some exercise with the dog. Wife and 18 y.o. daughter

currently out on their bikes doing 20 miles worth of exercise. In the middle of fence painting at the moment (3 days worth) Then

internal decorating.

Looking forward to Rfu's decision as to what to do with the leagues. York really in a win/win position either promotion or plenty of hotly

contested well supported local derbies

Nice posts here and good to see you all again.

I imagine life is the same here in Ilkley as elsewhere in Yorkshire - just a few cars around and rather gloomy-looking people queuing here and there for food and the Post Office. The weather has been so lovely this week, it’s hardly surprising that after all the doom and gloom around ( isn’t the BBC awful ? ) that people felt they could and should get out into the fresh air. We live right next to Ilkley Moor and could hear what sounded like hundreds of people there at the weekend - not since though.

Goodness knows what rugby will be like when it returns, but I would think a lot of the semi-pro teams are really going to struggle. We’ve had such a rotten season that a lot of us were glad to see the premature back of it ! Anyway, hopefully back to see some old friends in due course.

God bless us, one and all said Tiny Tim.
