We’ve a wedding that’s been moved due to covid, 1 props wedding, 3 props as ushers. Massive Buffett needed and as last week showed, we’ve a shortage of props.

We asked Bramley as soon as the fixtures came out luckily they are such a great club it wasn’t a problem for them. 👍

That’s good. Better that than having Covid cases.

Bramley v Wibsey?

As I said in the first post, looks like Bramley v Wibsey has been rearranged for the next free weekend along with Knottingley v Burley which was postponed due to Covid in the Burley camp. Wibsey couldn't field a side against Skipton but I don't know whether that was Covid related or just lack of numbers.

Castleford v Hemsworth - I don't think a lot of teams will go to Cas this season and come away with the points.
Halifax Vandals v Sheffield Medics - great win for Vandals last week but I think Medics will find a way to play around them.
Harrogate Pythons v Barnsley - big game for both teams looking to keep their winning starts going. Barnsley have had the tougher fixtures but have played twice at home so will by interested to see how they travel. Looking forward to it.
Knottingley (J) v West Park Leeds - tough result for Knottingley last week but by the sounds of it they had enough field position, just couldn't make it count. WPL have started poorly and expect Knottingley to roll them over this week.
Old Otliensians v Burley - can Otliensians scrape together a front row this week to avoid the walkover? Big chance for Burley to get a win on the board here.
Ossett v Skipton - though Skipton lie 2nd in the table and Ossett lost their first home game I think this one will go the way of Ossett.

Barnsley v Knottingley - good start to the season for Barnsley they'll be looking to continue that form at home. The Knottingley lads won't make it easy though, should be a cracking game.
Bramley Phoenix (J) v Old Otliensians - looked like a much changed Otliensians side and unless they've got some players back it could be a long afternoon for them. Bramley will throw the kitchen sink at them and I'd expect them to be stronger at home.
Burley v Harrogate Pythons - hopefully Burley have cleared the Covid from their camp and the fixture will go ahead. Been a while since we've played at Burley so looking forward to it.
Hemsworth v Ossett - I think Ossett will have been disappointed to have lost last week but Hemsworth is not an easy place to bounce back from a defeat. Close home win.
Sheffield Medics v Castleford - Medics obviously have a decent side back judging on last weeks result but Cas are a big strong team who will dominate in the forwards, not sure Medics will get enough ball or field position to punish them out wide.
Skipton v Wibsey - credit to Skipton not many saw that coming last week. Both sides will be wanting to make it 2 out of 2 but I'll back Skipton to roll over their momentum from last week.
West Park Leeds v Halifax Vandals - hard to tell if WPL were bad last week or whether Barnsley were just that strong. You'd fancy them to want to bounce back at home though Vandals won't make it easy. Close home win.

A reminder on how the predictions competition works for anyone still wanting to join in:
- Pick 6 results out of the 7 games to predict. This is so people don’t have to bet on their own team but can if they want to.
- Pick one result as your joker to be worth double points (no restrictions on how often you can pick one team)
- You can predict a draw if you want.
- Add a couple of comments as to why you’ve made your predictions to keep some level of banter.
- If you miss a week here and there you'll be automatically given whatever the lowest score was that week.
- Feel free to make any general comments/banter even if you don’t want to make any predictions.
- Anyone welcome, not just those from Y3

Predictions below please. Highlight in bold or comment your winning team. Put a J for your joker. Any questions or queries just post below and I'll answer.

Here's the fixtures:
Barnsley v Knottingley
Bramley Phoenix v Knottingley
Burley v Harrogate Pythons
Hemsworth v Ossett
Sheffield Medics v Castleford
Skipton v Wibsey
West Park Leeds v Halifax Vandals

Good luck all!

The Harrogate game was a good test for us, going in at HT down 6-3 despite the majority of territory just no end product. The first 20 mins of the second half was all harrogate, very clinical at finishing chances. The biggest difference between Y3 & Y4 so we must learn from it. The final 20 minutes saw us run in two good tries missing out on a bonus point by a single point.

On to next week & otley which will hopefully allow us to have all our players back.

Your lads certainly threw everything at us and I'm sure you'll give a lot of teams a hard time with committed performances like that. It's a completely transformed Bramley team from the last time we played each other in the league and the game is much better for it. Hope you enjoyed your bus trip and look forward to the return fixture!

On another note it's interesting to see a few clubs across different leagues making comment about the number of players they had unavailable this weekend. It seems like every club was in the same boat and it made it a struggle for us to get a 2nd team out. Wonder if it was just a case of people making the most of the last weekend before kids go back to school or maybe an overlap from rugby league or cricket seasons or whether priorities have changed for some people and this might be the 'new normal'. Hopefully back to business for all teams next week.

Right here’s  the scores from the new boy.
Barnsley v west Park- Leeds tykes struggle to get a side ye right! But I still take Barnsley by 14
Castleford v Vandals- purely based on start of season and travel Cas by 12
Harrogate v Bramley- hope we perform good luck to our boys
Worms v Burley - got to be worms by 16
Otley v skipton - otley by 14
Ossett v medics - still take ossett even without the star man I am guessing, hope the injury isn’t too bad.

Glad to get back to Saturdays as they should be !

Do you want to add a joker to one of your predictions? Double points if you get that one right.

Just remind me of the scoring system - as in are you doing + or - 7 match score? How many points do you get for a correct prediction - presumably doubled if a joker played? Do you do one exact score prediction, or is that a step too far?

Just predict the winner of each game. One point per correct prediction, 2 points on your joker. Pick 6 results from the 7 fixtures so no-one has to bet on their own result, though they can do if they want. No exact scores, margins or anything like that required though you can have a guess at that if you want.

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.

Difficult to call really as so much could have changed for the better or worse over the last 18 months, I imagine there’ll be a fair few surprise results early on in the season. Good luck everyone!

Barnsley v West Park Leeds - both teams will be wanting to make a statement early doors as they look to bounce back up. Don’t really know either team so will go with home advantage
Castleford v Halifax Vandals - Cas finished last season strongly and have had a couple of good pre-season results so think they’ll have too much for Vandals
Harrogate Pythons v Bramley Phoenix - Bramley were a completely different side when we played them in the cup last season and seemed to have a handy team as well. Think they’ll do well this year so we’ll have to be at our best to get the result.
Knottingley v Burley - should be a routine home win this one.
Old Otliensians v Skipton - Ensians are typically very good at home so think they’ll have too much around the park for Skipton.
Ossett (J) v Sheffield Medics - Medics generally don’t have a full complement this early in the season and Ossett will want to lay down a marker at their new ground. Comfortable home win.
Wibsey v Hemsworth - Wibsey play their own pitch very well and Hemsworth don’t usually travel too well so going for a home win.
