That is such awful news. Thoughts and condolences from everyone at Seaham RUFC.

Don't sink to his level lads.

Same with the Seaham vs Seaton Carew game as it happens.

Blyth - This will be their comeback as they are not playing a team beginning with the letter "S". Try scoring bonus too

Ha ha ha, loving the S conspiracy theory 😂

Houghton vs Wallsend = home b/p win...
Houghton will have a lighter pack but that won't bother them as they try to run the legs off Wallsend's big pack. Some of the hosts' backs are fast enough to catch pigeons and their back row are always close to the breakdowns. That will be the difference here.

Jarrovians vs Prudhoe & Stocksfield = away win...
l have a lot of respect for our Lukes Lane friends and admire the way they keep plugging away; especially when the odds are heavily against them. Its always important to beat the teams around you but l reckon P+S, led by their number 8, will nick the spoils here.

Seaham vs Seaton Carew = home win...
Seaton Carew have always been one of those teams that we rarely beat. They've had a few disappointing results of late and will have been working hard in training to put things right. This season, the Harbour have caused a few upsets and l reckon - if we can field a strong squad and play our own game - there's nothing to stop us winning again and making this our best season for at least five years.

Seghill vs West Hartlepool TDSOB = home b/p win...
When l saw them a few weeks back, Tech played out of their skin for the first half then tired around the hour. You need to go the full 80 to beat Seghill. l fancy their threequarters to run the points in late on and earn a convincing win.

South Shields vs Chester-le-Street = home b/p win...
Great win for Chester over Seghill last time out. However, Shields are very well organised and stick to a solid game plan. Tight defence and a lightning attack adds up to a tough combination to crack and l can see them winning at a canter.

Yarm vs Blyth = away win...
Yarm have got some real pace in the backs but don't seem to be punching their weight this season. Blyth have fast backs but also have a better pack in my opinion and l reckon thats where the game will be won.

Durham & Northumberland Three / DN3 Predictions for 09/12/17
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:27:54 PM »
This weekend's DN3 fixtures are...

Houghton vs Wallsend
Jarrovians vs Prudhoe & Stocksfield
Seaham vs Seaton Carew
Seghill vs West Hartlepool T.D.S.O.B.
South Shields vs Chester-le-Street
Yarm vs Blyth

Please leave your predictions below with a few lines to make reading it more interesting. Best of luck everyone

lt certainly would be mate. Clubs like ours should be looking after each other and making sure their lads get games. Thanks to the lads from other clubs who helped us out today. Thats what grass roots rugby should be all about. Well done all.

Seaham ll beat Sunderland ll by 22-10 at Hill View. Great game.

Just in time for poor old Seaham to cop it... cheers 😉😂

Bishop Auckland vs Sedgefield - home win...
Two big strong packs but l think Bish will edge the tight exchanges.

Darlington vs North Shields - away win...
Shields having a good season and Darlo aren't as they look to put the brakes on their ongoing troubles. Shields pack to edge it.

Hartlepool vs Ashington - home win...
A few people have regretted betting against Ashington this season but l think they'll leave Mayfield Park with a loss.

Newton Aycliffe vs Sunderland - home win...
I think Aycliffe will look to silence their many critics this week and bounce back in style. Mind, you never know with Sunderland.

Richmondshire vs Acklam - away win...
Potential banana skin for Acklam but they've got a good rhythm going and should be able to weather an early storm.

Whitley Bay Rockcliff vs Ryton - home win...
Tough call this one. Rockcliff are having a canny season and l reckon the old growlers on the touchline will give them the incentive to nail a close game. 😉

Winlaton Vulcans vs Whitby - away win...
A long journey for Whitby but l reckon they'll nick it. Some dodgy hill to negotiate both ways with Birk Brow and Shibdon Bank. Hope they've had their brakes tested.

What with DN3 being smaller than the two leagues above us, we have a league free weekend. Do any other clubs in our league have rearranged fixtures or friendlies booked in?

Seaham Tigers (aka 2nds) travel a few miles up the road to play Sunderland lll in a friendly local derby. First time we've played our friends from Ashbrooke for a good 4-5 seasons so it'll be nice to catch up with a few old friends and quaff their ales.

I don't wish to take sides in this ongoing debate, but I would like to make a contribution that would shine a better light on Newton Aycliffe RUFC...

A couple of seasons back, when Seaham were at the depth of their woes, we travelled to Moore Lane for a league game and then realised our kit man had forgotten our strips. I had a word with my old mates Stu McIvor and Bob Malvern about the situation and, without a hint of worry, they provided us with a full set of their away tops and we played our game.

After the game we we treated to some fine hospitality in the bar - several jugs of beer were sent between tables etc. I approached Bob and tried to give him some cash to launder the strips he and Stu had kindly loaned us but he didn't want paying. When people talk to me about Aycliffe, that's the memories I have of them.

Fair enough, their fortunes have improved and they've battled their way into DN2. I wish them nothing but good fortune, because they've had plenty of bad luck in recent times. The important thing to remember is that - as good rugby people - we should support each other through good times and bad... because we all end up taking our turn at the bottom of life's rucks at times.

As a long-term member of Seaham RUFC, I can vouch for what it feels like when your club are struggling and people line up to stick the boot in. Some of the clubs that stuck the bot into us when we were down no longer exist; or have dropped out of the league structure and returned. Karma is always waiting around the corner to bite your bum, so beware. Always remember where you've come from and how it feels to be there. Hopefully the witch hunt will cease and people will get on with their lives now.

That was relating to our result. As for my prediction for your match, l take it back - that is a truly fantastic result for Chester-le-Street. That is no mean feat as Seghill are a major scalp this season.

Blyth 19 - 39 South Shields
Chester-le-Street   31 - 22 Seghill
Houghton 29 - 5 Yarm
Prudhoe & Stocksfield   13 - 14 Seaham
Wallsend 44 - 19 Seaton Carew
West Hartlepool TDSOB P - P Jarrovians

Prudhoe & Stocksfield vs Seaham = away win...
l know the hosts have enjoyed a great season so far, have ran several of the promotion favourites close, and are rather strong at home. However, we too are enjoying a decent season and are never more dangerous than when we're underdogs. lf we can travel with a strong squad, and play to our potential, l reckon we'll nick it.

This lad knows what he's talking about ha ha. Thats the first time we've won fower league games on the belt since 2012.
