Banter
« on: August 15, 2021, 12:09:48 PM »
A proper season is fast approaching and with one friendly under the belt already, looking forward to having something to write about. Any interest in getting the predictions and banter going again? Ribex was a master of scoreboard manipulation and Flaggy was a stickler for fair play. Who will be moderating this season and do we have any interest from Hullensians, Keighley, Leeds Corinthian and Baildon in talking nonsense on a weekly basis.

For the record, Ripon's first pre-season friendly was v York last week and we came second best. By heck York had some big lads! next week we take on Darlo and then Gateshead Fell.

Cheers in Rugby.

Keighley look strong, with convincing wins over Burnley and Old Rish yesterday, they play Salem in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to be back watching rugby.

Will definitely be getting involved in the banter and predictions (may have to be informal / adhoc due to the pressure of NHS work)

Any chat welcome doc and think it will probably remain informal as nobody coming forward to run the results table. I can’t as also suffering pressure of NHS work - you are not alone! Banter it is unless anyone else steps up to run predictions as in Y3.

To be honest the Y3 predictions league doesn’t take too much maintenance. I update the rankings every few weeks so it probably only takes up about half an hour a month.

As for ‘banter’ I’ll be interested to see how Baildon and Corinthians get on following their promotions. I think they’ll both be very strong at home, 2 very different sides but so effective at utilising their game plan. There wasn’t a lot separating 7th and 12th in Y2 last year, all of them will need to pull their finger out as I’m not sure the newbies will be relegation fodder this year.

Thanks GP, I think I will give it a go. Mind you, with only three of us corresponding on Y2 at the moment, it could be quite simple!
