Pocklington International Barbarians
« on: January 21, 2022, 09:14:32 AM »
I'm really looking forward to seeing Pocklingtons international superstars play tomorrow.
What a coincidence and such good luck that international players should walk into Pocklington when they were near the bottom of the league and struggling earlier on this season.

And what a difference it has made... a huge improvement.

In the long run it should save them a lot of money because it demonstrates that their mini and youth section isn't needed now...😁😁😁

Congratulations to Pocklington for showing us all the way forward for the future of rugby.

I’m presuming by the post your dangling a little bait for the Pocklington faithful to nibble on BRB?

Would also guess by your post that Scarborough haven’t ever had to bolster the first team with players from overseas, or money changing hands for representing the mighty seaside town? All homegrown players in the starting lineup this weekend?

Scarborough have had plenty of success on the back of your out of towners!

What’s the saying, people in glass houses?

How rude....how could you make such accusations.

All players at Scarborough are born in sight of Silver Royd.

I have to agree that last weeks Pocklington side were in a different league to the one that took to the park at the beginning of the season, but if your team is struggling and you have to improve it then it's up to the club how they go about it. Whilst 2nd best through most of last week's game Brods 13 took the game to them in the last quarter and Pock looked beatable so if Scabs can do that from the beginning of the match they could come away with the spoils.
Never argue with an idiot, he'll bring you down to his level and beat you with experience!

Ballbag bandit strikes again.

Seemed to be more than a few home grown lads in the Pock team that had played age group county with some of our boys.

A very similar team to the one we played earlier in the season but they defended hard and were worth the win.
