Debate rages at Malton
« on: January 02, 2019, 12:08:02 PM »
I have it on good authority that there is a battle for the soul of Malton RUFC. Half of the those that matter want the club to make mass signings from the townships of South Africa (on 6 month tourist visas) in an attempt to stave off possible relegation.

Whilst another faction of influence in the club are of the opinion of "been there, done that" and want to rely on the current players....

Who will win? Keep an eye on the team sheet for the answer....

(if they do go down the signing overseas players route)

No problem with RFU they will be on a holiday visa.
 They cannot possibly be paid ......can they.

of course they won't be getting paid to play because as you mentioned they are only on holiday visas

i was referring to possible payment for flights etc...

Do you need any help counting your money this weekend? perhaps you might grace us with your presence?

Or are still concentrating on your independent moderator role? in the hope of advancement?

I hope Malton give some of their up and coming young players a chance, that is of course if they have got any?

I am sure there will be a few disillusioned colts up for grabs at the Globetrotters if they cast their net!

Why don't they just "loan" a few?

fantastic part of the world, some great golf courses!

Unlike Malton! Just joking!

I hope the camp who want to develop their own talent succeeds!
