Well done WilyJ, looks like a lot of interest in browsing, but no punts to win prizes yet. Here goes:

1. Sheffield Medicals - fortunately they all recovered and are now advising the government on pandemic management

2. Hoodie from  Knottla - rumour has it he was born with concussion

3. York - in a bid to recruit from the Rowntrees talent Pool

4. Moortown - however, the revenue cost savings may contribute to more investment in pitch management equipment, like a bigger Hoover

5. Yarnbury - they’re not even allowed to talk to opposition after games

6. Got to be Carl - never seen him play, but think he sees himself as a good investment

7. Old Rishworthians - possibly due to the former Fijian connection?

8. Wily Coyote

9. Yorkshire what? Thought it ended at 3?

10. Toss up between Roundhegians and West Park England- going with England as they have the bigger (and drier) pitch and can better distance themselves.

Answers:
1. Bramley
2. Avinastella - The ridiculous comments just don't make any sense
3. York - tempting the Rowntrees talent with a few sweet treats
4. Moortown
5. Goole
6. Josh Nwanazia (Intense1)
7. Hemsworth
8. WilyJim - 32 - “Scoring tries, spreading…”
9. 100% (1 respondent)
10. Northallerton - Just farmers and sheep up there. Sheep can't catch corona so no risk of any spread!

Cheers Wily, I can't believe I actually got three right! No copyright issues with you plagiarising my material, just hope there's more where this came from - could do with a bit of light relief.
