Something to tell the grandbairns about mate. You'll have to get a photo mounted and put up in the Winlaton Vulcans clubhouse - pride of place for a local lad come good.

I had no idea that rugby was so popular in Sri Lanka but Level 5 is a cracking standard. No doubt they might end up with an influx of Aussie or NZ players that help raise their standards even further and help fulfil their potential. Happy days.

I go back to my original point, it's the team's responsibility to know the score and not the ref's.

I agree. From a personal perspective, l always keep a tally of everything via the use of a simple box chart l devised myself. Eight columns detailing...
Yellow cards
Red cards

At least that way l've always got all of the information handy if anyone wants to use me as a point of reference (which they seem to do every two minutes at the Harbour) - and quite a lot of the time thats whilst l'm running touch.

Bearing in mind that many of the clubs in Level 7 and 8 have a lot more volunteers than us at Level 9, it should be relatively easy to coordinate... or should l say delegate. Its not what can my club do for me, its what can l do for my club.

Blyth vs Houghton = away win...
Blyth's handling and support play was very impressive when they beat Seaham last week. However, Houghton can more than match those aspects and can attack full on or on the counter with equal effect.

Chester-le-Street vs Yarm = away win...
I was very impressed with Yarm when we played them a few weeks back. If they can keep the ball in hand (rather than kick good ball away) l can see them winning handsomely. You never can tell with Chester though.

Prudhoe & Stocksfield vs Seghill = away win...
If both teams play to their true potential it ought to be a quick paced try fest. Seghill to shade it with the hosts earning a losing bp.

Neil ---' retired veterans'  if there playing this Saturday there not retired
I think if you're going to nitpick at someone's written accuracy you should at least take care to spell 'they're' correctly. Twice.

So the moral of the story is divn't act the goat or a'll set my mate Mugsy onta yer 😂😂😂

I'll rephrase that to "no longer interested in playing league games but available for friendlies when they crop up" veterans. I think that clarifies their availability status.

Obviously both of you good folk are associated with South Shields RUFC. Therefore, l would have thought this matter would have been better off discussed face to face over a pint rather than via a public forum. That works better, give it a try (pardon the pun) 😉

That should be a hell of a game. They were good yesterday.

I was disappointed to hear the home crowd cheer when the Shields 10 got injured with what looked like an illegal elbow. Thought that was uncalled for.

Thats a bit bad to hear.  Rugby is meant to be a gentleman's game and the illegal use of elbows has no place in it.  Fair enough cheering when someone puts a big but fair hit in but its only a game after all.

Well said mate. Refreshing to see a side that was affected by the said decision looking to move on and focus on what lies ahead. Just like some previous posts acknowledged, refs are only human and we'd be knackered without them.

I was very impressed with England's defence in the second half BUT thought we kicked far too much good ball away. Wales played most of the second half strongly running back the possession we continually kicked down their throats and l was squirming uneasily in my seat for much of that time. I think we'll need to keep it tighter for the remainder of the championship.

Blyth vs Seaham = home win...
Blyth seem to have rediscovered their form over the past few weeks and will no doubt be keen to avenge Seaham's win from earlier in the season. If we play like we did against Seaton Carew last week we will lose again. However, l'm sure our lads will be keen to bounce back and, if we can take a strong squad up to Plessey Road and play like l know we can, l'm sure we'll not be leaving empty handed.

Chester-le-Street vs Seaton Carew = away BP win...
This looks like being a mismatch and I can't see anything other than a big win for Seaton Carew. They were very impressive against the Harbour last weekend.
Wallsend vs South Shields = away BP win...
Wallsend have bust more coupons this season than l've ever known. South Shields on the other hand are very consistent and l can't see past another strong victory for them.

West Hartlepool T.D.S.O.B. vs Prudhoe & Stocksfield = Away win...
No doubt Tech will still be buoyed by their victory over Wallsend a week or two back. But, if P+S can travel strong l reckon they'll take the spoils in a close game.

Yarm vs Seghill = Away BP win...
I agree with RugbyMad78 that Yarm ran Seaham close a couple of weeks ago and l was certainly impressed with them. But l found that they kicked too much good ball away and that will be pennies from heaven for Seghill's speed merchants.
