My lad plays at Broughton Park having transferred there in January and Dare say some account should be taken of the time it can take to get to the other side of Manchester past the Trafford Centre and then in, before saying it’s the easiest to get to.

Other Senior Rugby / Re: VOTE FOR NO CHANGE- IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
« on: March 07, 2019, 08:30:17 AM »
Strange email circulated this afternoon from the 'Northern Action Group' and may I say slightly misleading. For clarity I was under the impression this wasn't a 'vote' but each club has been asked to 'submit their endorsement'.

I do feel we should just leave each to club discuss what option they feel is best and submit their requested endorsement accordingly. Today's email just wiffed of political spin! It is very difficult to understand what the greater number of clubs want to happen, hence the request to submit your preference in the first place.

I would like to see less focus on what other clubs may or may not want to happen and trust each club will make their decision on their own. We are all big boys after all.

Totally agree with these sentiments, each club needs to make their own minds up based on what is important to them. At York because of our situation, we are considering the number of local derbies we would have, for not only distance travelled but also gate receipts, lunches, sponsors etc. Many clubs will have their views which will be often communicated as the ‘greater good’ which will suit many but not all. Each club must endorse one or other option but do it for your own reasons based on information provided and researched within your clubs. Some would say the RFU will take note of numbers on endorsements and then go with what they want anyway.

North One / Re: Will York send a team to Morpeth?
« on: March 05, 2019, 02:13:34 PM »
I'm hearing that there is a chance York will give Morpeth a walkover on Saturday - highly humiliating.

By all accounts the York pack was totally destroyed on Saturday against YM and a few of the forwards have thrown the towel in. I gather they don't fancy playing against the Morpeth pack away from home.

I think York should pull themselves together and man-up a bit and pick some motivated 2nd team players. The York I know wouldn't just roll over.

We are still the York you know, no merit or truth in any of your words. Perhaps you ought to focus on issues closer to home such as your Women’s team folding due to lack of players.

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.

Actually we have 72 registered players, 23 of whom are under 21 years of age. However if you know your rugby you understand that most clubs will have a core of 22 or 23 capable of playing at level 6, what we have done is use the younger and registered 2nd team players to cover for injuries and unavailability, and they have risen to the challenge manfully but it is hard.

On a serious note, York have got a right scrap on their hands not to get drawn into the bottom three.

have lost a further five players since the new year, two to injury, one to suspension, one to college and Johnno to the swap deal with Hull Ionians. We let Johnno go to help them out, to cover their front row shortages and Ionians loan us an invisible 6'6" white rabbit called Harvey, to replace our injured lock forward!

Typical Senior club, they fill you full of bxxxxxxt and then pxxs on your Strawberries! Will we never learn?

Just to clarify DAA is not a party toarrangements we may or may not have with senior clubs in the area. Any comments he makes are purely as a result of hearsay and should be treated as such.
Just to clarify that I am not party to any arrangements York have with any senior clubs in the area! But the source is!

Doubt that as only 1 person is a party to the actual arrangement

North One / Re: Coaches hissie-fit. Quiz time!

This raises a point from our last home game, the ref allowed a prop back onto the field 90 seconds after sin binning him because he was the 2nd of the front row
to be binned and the opposition only had one front row replacement, scrums continued as opposed rather than unopposed. They had to take off another player ie 13 on the pitch. is this a correct interpretation of the rules anybody?

I spoke with referee after the game and his reasoning was that as the scrum was 5 metres out from Morley line and our put in, we would have been at a disadvantage from Morley having 2 props on yellows and therefore the scrum would have been uncontested. He made a decision that 1 prop could come back on with another player going off nominated by the Morley skipper. Seemed to me a referee interpreting the laws which is what we ask them to do all the time. That yellow card was after a number of same offence penalties and so it was last one got the card, had it been for single act of foul play it wouldn’t have happened (high tackle, deliberate knock on or obstruction etc), so fair enough and he was happy to explain in the bar.

I think someone at York, maybe the physio, needs to let the returning recognised hooker in the second team know that rugby is contact sport at all levels.

Do hookers throw the ball in less or grip props shirts in the bind looser in lower teams?!

Injury happened away from rugby.

North One / Re: Season so far
« on: November 11, 2018, 05:23:19 PM »
With 3 season ending injuries, plus 3 others likely to be out until at least xmas and 5 others with indeterminate length injuries Yorks first goal should be to obtain enough points to stay in this league (50/51) Coach Lee D played at hooker in Yorks cup v Cleckheaton yesterday so we are struggling just to field a side. Morley will be there or there abouts and Driffield will finish better than they have started

Very much the few from the stand and not the club. We have injuries, only 1 season long other clubs have injuries as well. Squad yesterday for the cup game had 7 2nd team regulars plus a couple of our ex-Colts who are now at University but we kept their registration live. Indeed 2 of the bench were there only in emergency. Disappointing that we had unopposed scrums from the start at Cleckheaton’s request, but at least we got the game played.

Just to be clear DAA is his own man and does not speak on behalf of York RUFC and I would suggest he likes it that way. I spoke with referee after the game to clarify one decision to do with a technical offence at the scrum which he answered and we worked on that in training. Other parts of the game there has been plenty of discussion about over a beer but we are 100% of the view that the referee is the sole arbiter of the laws on the pitch and we should and always will respect that at York.
