I believe it's not right that medicals give points to teams depending on when the students are back home or at uni.

Oh so bitter and twisted - have they beaten you this season or something ?

Dementia must have got to Renegade when he copied and pasted that poem just a little after I'd posted it

MallyK, as you stated "the ref didn't see this happen" the foul play. Based on that what would you expected him to do?

there's a chairman of a junior club in south tyneside - who is my brother - who was yellow carded by a referee for punching in a maul., way back in the 90's. The ref said he didn't see it but knew it was the little fat hooker[he was thinner then as well]. All of us knew he'd done it. 

Good refereeing even if the little shit house wasn't happy at being sent to the naughty step, were you Brian?

I wasn't at the game so can only give a general viewpoint.

It's not a nice environment when fighting kicks off of the level described and if the referee was also being given a load of verbals in and around the incident then maybe he felt intimidated. A scenario where you have 30 players, replacements, coaches and supporters who may be shouting at you can't be fun. When a large group like that are highly charged he may have felt he had no choice.

Well said Renegade..

It's not just about the players being able to get on with the game. The referee is entitled to consider his own involvement in the game as well.

Your'e welcome

Banging your head against a wall isn't a great thing to do.

It's Understandable that Hit Man is a bit aggrieved after being named and shamed so to speak, and i don't think it's acceptable for any one on this forum to remove other people's anonymity like that.

Regardless of that, I believe it is indeed is in poor taste for any referee to post the original message in this forum. You're allowed an opinion, obviously, but your opinion no matter how passionate or well intended, could be taken as bias. Whether you want it to or not!

As Slam has said, NRURS took action, put the referee's in place, and that's the end of it. Medicals are staying quiet, I suspect someone has told them to stay out of trouble on the forums. Bit late for Meds and Stockton to get on the phone and chat this out but it can't do any harm to try and blow this over.

Lets hope matches between the two sides next year will be as electric as ever, without all this crap cropping up.

Rediculas, lets ban all referees, coaches and committee officials from posting messages, this is a great thread 146 replies and 6401 views, it's obviously more interesting than any other posts, I should be applauded, perhaps Knighted!!!  ;D

You should learn when to just leave it alone.

that approach would work in a number of cases but sometimes it just won't.

I had an issue with a particular bloke from S Shields Rugby who had a pop at us one week cos we couldn't get 15 out and then the next week was asking if we had any spare players to help them out.

Rather than get into a twitter spat I rang their coach - fella by the name of Mcay - and it was sorted out between the two of us.  But the individual bloke who had a rant at me still called me allsorts a little later. 

The main thing is there was no bad feeling between the clubs as a result of this.

Chester-le-Street vs Prudhoe & Stocksfield. Hard to tel on this one. Having seen both teams I'd say evenly matched. A close CLS win.
Richmondshire vs Houghton. Shire for this one. About 20 points in it.
Seaham vs Yarm. Yarm having seen them twice werent massivley impressive. Still a Yarm comfortable win.
Seghill vs Newton Aycliffe. Aycliffe. Seghill have a speedy set of backs as do Aycliffe so could be an entertaining game. Aycliffe by 30.
West Hartlepool TDSOB vs Jarrovians. Difficult one this. I'm going home win by 20 points.

Difficult and then a big home win - lol ?

My club (Winlaton) are locally known as the "lunatics from the asylum on the hill", that may be because we all suffer from altitude sickness up here. We do however have the best views in the county bar none, looking down the Tyne towards Newcastle.

aka a bunch of dorty bastards

but always enjoyed a good game up there as well.

No prisoners taken and none asked for back in return

And which ones of Mugsy's descriptions don't resonate? Do they have any elements of accuracy in them?

If each club - a member of this forum from each club - did a list then we could collate and see what other clubs thought of ourselves.

Can we manage a 360 degree appraisal without people getting their knickers in a twist

« on: February 01, 2017, 01:02:22 PM »
I have just watched the Ben Kay and Ugo Moyne clip about tackling around the try line area. We had this situation occur today, where a player goes low to power over and the tackler comes in. Contact with the head means penalty, as it was so close to the line sin binning and a penalty try. Very hard to be a referee at the moment, just think once you issue one it becomes the norm your forever in your pocket. So what your thought people.

Wayne Barnes explained that there should be no sanctions in this situation if the tackler is making a normal attempt to tackle the player. The fact that the ball carrier is now at knee level does not exempt him from being tackled. This part of the game is not to be punished
