Since prediction standards are at a low point, I thought it a good time to have another go.

Bridlington v Morley              Brid with home advantage to have a narrow win.
Dronfield v Moortown            Home win but no BP.
Glossop v Old Crocs              Glossop to succumb to a Crocs side that can be useful, don't know how the will travel.
Old Brods v Malton & N         After last weeks mauling at Moorgate Ave, Old Brods, who had plenty of ball for the first hour
                                           will surely be anxious to get back to winning ways at home.  BP win for Brods.
Scabs v Rochdale                  A first visit to Scabs for Dale, so new ground to tread.     Dale win.
Selby v Goole                       Very close game, Selby to sneak it, Goole to up their game from last week.

Bridlington v Morley – A must win from Bridlington to kick start the rest of their season and set themselves up for next weeks rearranged Coastal derby away at Scarborough. Told this Saturday is also Brid’s  former players reunion lunch. So ignoring league positions going for a Brid win.

Dronfield v Moortown – Expecting a close game but think last weeks win will give Moortown the momentum to win a close game.

Glossop v Old Crocs – Crocs to bounce back from their loss to Selby.

Old Brods v M&N – Close game but think the Brods slope will be the decider, home win but with M&N getting a bonus point.

Scarborough v Rochdale – Rochdale win by twenty points.

Selby v Goole – Local derby which will attract a large crowd of farming folk. Bonus point win for Selby.

Apologies on the delay to predict - doubt it was missed massively so thank you Dalesman for some near accurate predictions.

Bridlington vs Morley - I fancy Morley here, it is a tough place to go but they'll fancy their chances to sneak one. Brid aren't the same force as old I feel and a declining season could continue here. If their overseas recruitment stops next year, Yorkshire 1 looms.

Dronfield Vs Moortown -A dull team vs an exciting one here and Moortown have the form. I think this could be a 60+ points game if the weather holds, that small pitch wont suit Moortowns width but if their 10 can get his kicking game going I don't fancy Dronfield to play out of their own 5 and win. Moortown by 11.

Glossop vs Old Crossleyans - Is it possible to score an own goal/own try in rugby? If its going to happen, this is your best bet. Crocs better on paper but have 0 cohesion - Glossop will be targeting this more than any other game - I think Crocs win by 5.

Old Brodleians vs Malton and Norton - A pivotal game at the top. Normally this would be in MOTD territory however there may be another fixture that takes my fancy 😉 I cannot get my head around the result last week, Rochdale must have been excellent to beat this Brodleians team by so many. They'll bounce back but Malton will be on a high with their run of form. This will be a tasty affair. Young Brods to win by 2.

Scarborough vs Rochdale - Rochdale seem to be improving at a rate of knots and they could afford to give some of their big guns a rest here as It should be a simple victory. They'll have their eyes on us in 2 weeks time so expect them to execute a 5 point win here.

Selby vs Goole - MOTD. Well this should be a cracker vs the old enemy. Goole have admittedly had the upper hand once this season then they managed to beat a weakened team of ours in the cup, I wouldn't say there is much to go off in the last 2. We will welcome their fans with open arms however I would hope they show some respect to the players on the pitch and they let their rugby do the talking. We will show our class and prowess here, and walk away with a 5 point win with the Goole heads down by 60 mins. Selby +20.

Bridlington v Morley - its starting to get tasty in the race to avoid the second relegation spot. Bridlington need to pick up 4 points at home this weekend to try and climb away from danger. Morley to turn up and spoil the party though this weekend. Morley by 5.

Dronfield v Moortown - Two sides who've had contrasting seasons to date.  Moortown now starting to climb the table and Dronfield seem to be heading the other direction, these two always play out close matches. Moortown to sneak it on Mount Dronfield.

Glossop v Old Crocs - Depends which Crocs team turns up. Glossop to cause another upset dragging OCs back into a relegation scrap they should be well clear of by this point.

Old Brods v M&N - What on earth happened at Rochdale last week?? Malton with a tidy win at home and look to quietly be building some momentum. A battle of the packs pending on Saturday and I'm backing M&N to come out on top.

Scarborough v Rochdale - Don't usually back Rochdale on the road but after good back to back wins at home I think they'll win comfortably at the seaside.

Selby v Goole - Should be a belting game, local derbies are often a coin toss game and I think this will be similar. Selby to get one back over Goole after defeat earlier in the year.

I would be interested to know which team is the dull team in this match up? From the bits I've seen of these teams this season both teams like to play rugby with ball in hand

The dull team is Dronfield - I must admit though it is an effective way of playing.

Who would you say plays a worse/better brand of Rugby?

I must caveat this with I've only seen these two at Mount Brodliean and the postage stamp at Crocs but Dronfield looked to play the more exciting rugby with ball in hand in those two games, the backs certainly had the better of Brods recently. Moortown probably play the better all round rugby but not necessarily as exciting, I guess we will find out whose style is more effective come Saturday evening

TalkSomeShite - I’d worry less about the supporters and more your players on the pitch, hopefully they can show some respect to the match officials. I’d hate to see a good game ruined by their lack of…. Discipline….?

Do I detect a long time ingrained inferiority in “Talk is Cheap’s” regular ramblings regarding Goole. He often tries to suggest that the supporters of Goole are of a lower class than the upwardly mobile members of Sailby despite their affection with the mining community and burying their heads underground.

 Even the Chelsea tractors he boasts about are rare and mostly old land rovers covered in mud dating back to the 1990s interspersed with the old Subaru with a big bore exhaust and loud noise which I wonder if he tries to emulate to hide his own complex.

I find it hard to believe that any self respecting member of Selby RUFC intentionally wants to be associated with such a moronic person

Talk is moortown balti - what an absolute 🔔 end you are. As far as I’m aware Goole have done you twice this season yet your arrogance over the result on Saturday is astonishing…
Even by my reckoning if you win that’s still 2-1 but I’m guessing the whole of the league won’t mind if you go up to get away from your continuous drivel..

As far as respect goes, your player discipline was poor if I remember rightly at Goole (was it 3 yellows and a red?) and you have had a player banned for 14 weeks for spitting - yes spitting at a match official. Is there any more heinous crime?
Respect is earnt…

The Goolies will be there in force I’m guessing tomorrow for a good day whatever probably in fine voice…

Goodness me - there is no need to bite so hard.

Have a little bit of a laugh and enjoy some comments in jest - I have addressed the prior incident that has been widely reported on and I commented that I don't think there is any place in the sport for it - nor do I condone it.

Did not realise it would be such a crime to back ourselves in the big one.

I hope, more than anything, we get an excellent game of rugby that isn't marred by on field discipline and it is 15vs15 for 80 minutes.

A raucous crowd might be create quite the atmosphere actually...

Winning games is hard enough for the lads without a club member fueling up the opposition.
I appreciate that this could be seen as "banter" but I think that I can say that the majority of Selby supporters do not associate with the views of Talk is Cheap.

I will be visiting Sandhill Lane for the first time for a while tomorrow to catch up with both Selby and Goole supporters.  And I bet you one thing...it will be a blooming close game!!

Here's to a great day of local rugby!!

Keep up the good work and the winding up, its the whole reason for the forum. If people are sensitive or upset by the comments feel free not to read them and go elsewhere.

          given you have only reappeared on here after Gooles recent rise (well deserved and noted by the way). I dont remember you having much to say over these past five years. It is therefore, I think, rather patronising to tell other posters basically "If they do not like what you say, go away and do something else".
Surely the point of all these forums is to have respectful discussion and ultimately understand each clubs feelings. I know I have made many "Rugby friends from many clubs over the years including Scarborough, Selby, Old Crocs, Keighley, Bramley, Ossett, Ripon, Ilkley to name but a few. I think your attitude shows a lack of respect to the people you criticise
No doubt you will tell me to get back where I belong (Y2) but its not that long ago you didnt feel this social forum worthy of anyone from Gooles time. How success changes people. Hmm
