Other Senior Rugby / RIP
« on: February 04, 2021, 08:10:47 PM »
Along with many clubs I dare say, York lost one of the true gentleman of Yorkshire rugby when Don Butler sadly died having contracted COVID aged 87. Don was a well known and loved rugby character who perhaps best known as the driving force behind York Unicorns, the midweek invitational side that was a friendly collection of players from all over the region. Lifetime York RUFC member and York RI member a proper old school, Bon viveur and one of the best known personalities of the rugby and sporting population of the area.

Struck us as at York whether it was a bit insensitive to post this as all clubs have suffered losses - but the Unicorns was not York it was all the regional clubs - and their opposition.  And if other clubs share their losses so we can celebrate anyone else we've lost then that's a good thing.

North One / Player Welfare
« on: March 03, 2019, 10:55:53 AM »
So with all this talk of league restructure and the motivation of player welfare, perhaps that needs to be passed onto the referees society. Whilst our match yesterday started off in sunshine with dusk scheduled for 5.40pm, cloud cover appeared around 30 minutes into the game and got pretty dark, maybe Freya was making an early appearance. The referee was asked if we were able to put the lights on at halftime and he refused saying they had to be on at the start or, effectively, not at all. I get all the points that we maybe ought to have had them on etc, but fact is we didn’t and consequently game finished with the crowd squinty eyes to see the game so goodness how it was for the players.

We at York have been let down by our final pre-season opponents scheduled for Friday evening under lights, bbq beers etc. Just making sure all stones are searched under if anyone is available for a fixture?

Yorkshire 1 / Skiptens poor show from Y1

Was it the ground or the weather but no shows at Skiptens from Salem, Keighley, Heath or Crocs (although understand that one). Might even too far for Wharfedale!
