Mucky win for York , Yarnbury were full of second team lads who did their club proud. Wet cold and greasy conditions didn't suit us but we'll take the win and move on. On this showing Yarnbury will remain in Y1.

It's easy to let games slip on wet cold February days played on heavy pitches. It's about grinding out a result, days like today make or break seasons.

York and Scarborough did what they had to do today they won. Also great results for North Ribb an Selby.

The relegation fight is becoming very interesting. I don't believe there are any poor teams
(when near to full strength) in  Yorkshire One so it will go down to the wire. Ribb are getting
stronger with a few more players set to return but of course for all I know the other teams
could also get stronger.

Another good win for Heath today. They seem to have turned the corner and are fulfilling their pre-season expectations, all be it a bit late.

I think there is a lot of being polite here chaps, regards results in Y1.
North Ribblesdale must be chuffed to bits as should Keegley.
Selby won but won't do much more this season.
York to only just win at home to an under strength Yarnbury is not that convincing.
Not trying to be a naih sayer....but really?

I would tend to agree  but all 3 games are more important than the meaningless Sheffield 2nd team drivel (not a fan of merit leagues) that you comment on.

Yesterday I witnessed two bottom of the table teams slug it out for 70 mins with Selby moving away in the last ten minutes. It wasn't pretty but it was a great game to watch. This was followed by a packed clubhouse watching the international.

This is what rugby is about! Working bloody hard on the pitch but having a good old drink together in the bar.

Nice one Sail by! :) :)

 Scabs fought hard for a win yesterday against a battling Bradford team. It was freezing cold, raining and windy so it was never going to be much of a spectacle but both teams gave it their all. A much depleted Scarborough side struggled to get momentum at times but everyone was very pleased with a win - the match could have easily gone either way.

Really enjoyed the company of the Bradford Salem officials for lunch, very nice bunch and looking forward to catching up again next season.

Its remains interesting at top and bottom. Having seen Acklam a couple of weeks ago I think they will go down but no idea who will join them.

Is that what qualifies as a bite?

Apologies for the drivel, it's kind of what Forums are about, people sharing thoughts on a common interest.

Like the idea of a full clubhouse and watching the game, excellent.

Have a nice day I am off to the space centre in Leicester with the kids x

Thoroughly enjoyable day out yesterday. Thought both teams played well considering the conditions.

A tenuous link to Yorkshire Rubgy but so what.

Refereed Middlesbrough v Barnard Castle yesterday in D&N I.

Middlesbrough were in buoyant mood after their pleasing (for them) Shield victory the weekend before against Hullensians.

Match was played on a pitch resembling the Somme and everyone look like Fran Cotton at the finish. Teams were indistinguishable by half time and numbers were long gone. Luckily for me everyone behaved.

Barnard Castle look like they're heading for at least a play off place after their promotion last season - 3 pts off top spot with 2 games in hand.

Back to proper Rugby.....

Meaningless to who Sail By.  Don't you think that 30 lads getting out on a Saturday for a game of rugby is meaningful? 

You may not like the merit leagues but the standard is better than Yorkshire 1.

As you can see I am not a fan of merit leagues.
30 lads playing in a merit league vs 1st, 2nd 3rd & 4th team all playing for Selby against York??
I know which I would rather play in or be associated with every day.

Ask yourself what do merit leagues bring to your club?
Ok they bring an easy cop out to arrange fixtures which are supposedly the same standard.

Do they aid in recruitment? See the other thread for Huddersfield and Ionians for that, but to be honest at Selby we do see a lot of player movement in the 4th and 5th team from other clubs as we treat all players equally.

At a club with 5 teams you could see little cliques forming because the 3rd team are doing well, whilst the second team are struggling. Luckily we don't see that too much but it has been widely discussed how X team has folded their 2nd team but still playing 3rd team merit.

Therefore I will return the question what is the point of Merit leagues?
Do you really think people commit more and play harder just to see where they are in a merit league?
I truly dont think that is the reason why players in lower teams cross that white line on a Saturday, for me it is because they love the game and they want to play with their mates!!

Sail By, morning.

I was indifferent to the Merit leagues myself at the outset.

Now I am of the opinion that whilst the league still has its obvious faults due to teams capitulating for a variety of reasons, (this could be avoided if more stringent penalties were enforced, Saying  that Sheffield Tigers were kicked out of our league and their results expunged), it is good for the fellas who want to play for something as well as each other, like a league title.

We are where we are and until the status quo changes, it will remain thus.
Just my opinion.
