Wednesday 28th November 2018
Yorkshire Academy 22 Australian Schoolboys 30 (HT 12-4)
Tour Match @ Wheldon Road, Castleford RLFC (7.30pm)
Admission £5 (including teamsheet)
Attendance 1,500 (estimate)
The usual refreshments available (didn't sample)


The Junior Kangaroos overturned a 4-16 deficit after 44 minutes to maintain a 100 per cent start to their five-date England tour. Valiant effort from Yorkshire Academy, who gave the tourists a much sterner examination than the lame England Colleges rep side did last weekend up at Newcastle. There wasn't much between the teams though, almost inevitably, the Aussie youngsters had that extra quality and speed of action, allowing them to open up in a flash the opposition defence when nothing looked on.

Crucially, the tourists scored three tries in six minutes (and three sets) to go 22-16 ahead by the 54th. Zac Cini, switching after the break from left wing to inside centre, contributed two of them, taking his tally to six in two matches. A 30-metre interception try three minutes later, by two-try centre Jack Broadbent, saw Yorkshire level at 22-22, but the Aussies clinched a deserved victory with touchdowns in the 66th and 70th minutes. Scrum-half Mikey Lewis also crossed twice for Yorkshire. I enjoyed the open, eventful second half more than the first, which was a bit too cagey and formulaic for my taste. Unlike the tour opener at Newcastle, this match had 40-minute halves. The Junior Kangaroos face Lancashire Academy on Saturday at the Manchester Regional Arena. A third game in six days for the tourists is likely to assist the hosts. On this evidence, I can see England Academy winning at least one of the tour-ending Tests, at Leigh and Leeds.

I've been to Wheldon Road many times over the years, though this was the first occasion on which I've sat in the main stand, the oldest part of a very traditional rugby league ground. Seen up close, the wooden main stand really is a museum piece. With a new stadium planned - but not begun - for Cas, Wheldon Road, three sides of which are terracing, is on borrowed time. When full, it's a wonderful arena. To my surprise, the whole ground was open this evening. Spotted among the onlookers were Leeds director of rugby Kevin Sinfield and York head coach James Ford.

Saturday 26th January 2019
Bentley 18 Army 16 (HT 6-8)
Challenge Cup, Round One (2pm kick-off)
Admission by donation
Programme £2 (eight pages, glossy)
Attendance 650 (rough h/c)
No refreshments available


Bentley, trailing at the hour mark, recorded a memorable Challenge Cup victory in a tight, tense encounter. Converted tries in the 60th and 77th minutes eased the hosts into an 18-10 lead. The Army, who had led 6-0 after eight minutes and 8-6 at half-time, reduced the deficit to two points in stoppage time with a try converted superbly from the touchline. The referee, whose penchant for favouring the visitors angered the Bentley supporters, played another four minutes, about eight in total. But Bentley, the competition's Yorkshire League representatives, held on with some comfort to send home happy the bulk of an enthusiastic crowd. In a crucial passage of play, in the 50th minute, the visitors, 8-6 ahead, were held up in goal in the left corner. That tremendous tackling effort, denying what looked a certain try, typified Bentley's defensive heroics. Had they conceded a try at that stage, Bentley may well have slipped to defeat.

Neither Bentley's clubhouse nor ground are in Bentley. Both are in Scawthorpe, west of the main east coast railway line that slices Doncaster in two. The spacious clubhouse, Scawthorpe Social Club, is a 10-minute walk from the ground, Woodside Playing Field, essentially a park pitch, a green oasis amid an ocean of red brick local authority semis. For this big occasion, Bentley erected temporary barriers along each side of the pitch and taped off both ends. I felt the hosts missed a trick by not laying on some form of catering, though they did a good job of positioning bucket shakers and programme sellers at each of the three entrances to the ground. Army personnel rocked up with a pole-mounted camera to provide a live streaming service.

Bentley qualified for the 2019 Challenge Cup by default. Batley Boys pipped them to the 2018 Yorkshire League Premier Division regular season title then, courtesy of a last-gasp drop goal, denied Bentley in the season-ending Grand Final. However, Bentley got the nod to take part because Batley Boys qualified automatically for the Challenge Cup after securing promotion to the National Conference League. On this evidence, Bentley, who trained over Christmas - not their custom - to ensure they were ready for this game, will be a test for anyone in the second round. Certainly, their fitness and determination could not be questioned.

26 January 2019
I went to Station Moor, Hunslet for my Challenge Cup round 1 fix.
Hunslet Club Parkside v Thornhill Trojans 12-30

Admission £1 (concession). Programme £1.

Thornhill led ten nil on the half hour, then two converted tries gave HCP a 12-10 lead at the break. It stayed like that until the final ten minute in which Thornhill registered three converted tries to seal an impressive victory.

there was a good attendance with both clubs well supported.

Sunday 27th January 2019
Lock Lane 16 Longhorns 10 (HT 10-6)
Challenge Cup, Round One (1.30pm kick-off)
Admission £2.50
Programme (w/a) 16pp
Attendance 300 (h/c)
No refreshments available


It speaks volumes that National Conference League Premier Division side Lock Lane were begging for the final whistle. Reduced to 12 players by a 70th-minute red card, and with Longhorns, the All Ireland league champions, pressing their line, the hosts somehow clung on for a barely deserved victory. Ashbourne-based Longhorns were the better team for long spells. Possession and field position stats would be in their favour. Unfortunately, the visitors tended to panic a little when close to the Lock Lane line. More method, less madness would have seen them to a memorable victory. One of the Longhorns officials told me before kick-off their players are much less raw and naive than twelve months ago, when I saw them lose 58-10 to West Hull at the same stage of the competition. He wasn't wrong! Lock Lane certainly knew they'd been in a game.

Tries in the ninth and 30th minutes sent Lock Lane into a 10-0 lead. A minute before the break, however, Longhorns got the reward their abundant pressure deserved. A converted try left the visitors four points behind at the interval. Five minutes into the second half, Lock Lane crossed again to open up a 16-6 lead. In the 61st minute, Longhorns went over in the left corner, too wide for the extras to be added. That Lock Lane dismissal, for what appeared to be unnecessary aggression in a tackle, put a spring in the Irishmen's step. They will be disappointed at failing to score another try during closing stages they bossed. Longhorns arrived in Yorkshire on Saturday morning and stayed overnight in Leeds. Another away tie suited them, they said. It's an opportunity for a bonding weekend away. Besides, Longhorns would be obliged to pay the expenses of opposition draw to play them in County Meath.

This was a third visit to Lock Lane's ground, on the north side of the Aire, in Castleford. It's well down my list of National Conference League favourites. The south end remains out of bounds and only half the west (near) side is accessible to spectators. The adjacent two-storey clubhouse is smart enough, and there are floodlights, but the rest of the set-up is really rather jaded (shall we say).

Sunday 27th January
Challenge Cup 1st Round (1pm @ Hitchin RUFC)
North Herts Crusaders 6-22 RAF (HT 0-10)
Attendance 218 (DJ's headcount)
No Admission charged. Small 8 page card style programme sold for £1
Cheeseburger £3

Visitors won this tie more comfortably than the score would suggest with two tries in each half, only the second they failed to convert. They also had two tries disallowed in the first half, one for a forward pass, the other when they crossed the line but failed to ground the ball. 0-22 down, credit must go to the hosts for fighting right to the end when they scored a consolation try after electing not to kick the two points on offer from a penalty to avoid being nilled but kept play alive and were rewarded crossing the line, a tired conversion attempt just made it over the posts. Game played in a biting wind and watched in the company of fellow hoppers Dermot, DJ and Mike S.

Crusaders play at King George V playing field, home to Hitchin Rugby Union Club about half a mile north of Hitchin Town FC which I passed on the way. Just an open field roped off but it has floodlights, as does one of the two pitches over the far side at 90 degrees to the main one. There is also a football pitch enclosed by trees away to the left, presumably a team in the West Herts league play their home games here.

All three of Sundayís cup ties now covered on here!

Sunday 27th January 2019 (ko 1330)
at Coronation Field, Millom
Rugby League Challenge Cup First Round
Millom 38 RLK Crvena zvezda 10 (ht 22-6)
Admission - £3.00
Programme - 32 pages, £0.50
Attendance - 1 500 (estimate)


The novelty value of this fixture and its staging on a Sunday meant I would always be interested in attending, though I would not have attempted it via Northernís unreliable Sunday train services, even though it was, just, theoretically possible. JimS provided a more reliable transport option, and another Kempsterite, Martin55, was also sighted in attendance. We could have done with DJ heading a little further north to do an accurate head count. The League Express reporter stated no official figure was given, but estimated 1 000, whilst Red Star quoted 2 000 on their facebook page. I thought somewhere between the two, but it was a very rough guess!

The clubhouse was packed, even when we arrived an hour before kick off, but I found a spot to get out of the cold for a while. Didnít join the scrum at the bar, but donít think real ale would have likely to have been available. Hot food and drink today was provided by a burger van parked outside. Cumbria had been hit by particularly wet weather on Saturday, which saw football postponed at Workington and abandoned at Kendal, so credit to Millomís groundsman for producing a perfect playing surface. Credit too to their programme editor - very much a home produced effort, but plenty of reading and excellent value for money - they had even gone to the trouble of having a couple of welcomes translated into Serbian.

The ground has been covered on here before, by myself and others, but it is a fairly typical amateur rugby league set up, with a railed off pitch and no cover. Three steps of steep terracing beyond the clubhouse offered a good viewing option in the face of such a large crowd. As many of you will know, the complex also houses the home of West Lancashire League team Millom FC, on a separate pitch. Black Combe, the highest hill in this part of Cumbria, towers over the ground to the north west, but it seemed today only to help funnel the wind towards us. A near gale was blowing the length of the pitch, and the wind chill effect was finger numbing.

Millom played with the wind behind them in the first half, so where always going to dominate, with Red Star not helped by indiscipline at the ruck, as they were on the wrong end of 7-2 penalty count by the break. However, when the visitors Aussie scrum half broke the home defensive line for a score against the elements, the outcome looked far from certain, and even at half time the thought persisted of what might happen if Red Star scored next. Millom showed their power though after the break, closing the game out comfortably enough. Nevertheless, it was far from the most one sided rugby league game I have seen, and the Serbians gave a highly creditable account of themselves. And with a match day squad that included two Americans, one Australian, but fourteen home grown players, they seem to be going about it in a way that could provide good foundations for the future.

The Barrow Mail reporter made the crowd 1,200. In 1986, I attended a Millom-Wakefield Trinity tie in the John Player Special Trophy, generally regarded as the biggest game in Millom's history. Estimates for the crowd that afternoon varied similarly but 3,500 is the figure that has become accepted. Temporary stands were erected for the occasion.

BUCS Premier North

Leeds Beckett v Hull 52-6

Leeds Beckett play their BUCS matches on the 3G at Kirkstall using Milford's Facilities.
I ended up watching this as both possible Football matches succumbed to frozen pitches.

Beckett were fitter and faster and lead 24-0 at the break. Things carried on in a similar fashion, but at least Hull managed a consolation score. Beckett scored nine tries with only the last one not being converted.

Beckett meet Northumbria next Wednesday at Kirkstall in a top two clash.

Sunday 3rd February 2019
York City Knights 0 Toronto Wolfpack 14 (HT 0-4)
Championship (tier two, 3pm kick-off)
Admission £17
Programme £3 (26pp, stylish issue, if overpriced)
Attendance 2,518 (per York tweet)
The usual refreshments available (didn't bother)


York, the 2018 League One champions, produced a tremendous defensive effort against fancied Toronto, who had to rely on two late tries to record an opening day victory. The hosts, who didn't get much change out of referee Gary Hewer (booed off at the end), never really looked like scoring but can take great encouragement from a determined performance against physically bigger opponents. Toronto were held up in goal three times. If York can reproduce this Championship debut tackling effort throughout the season, coupling it with greater attacking flair, they should be good for a mid-table finish. Toronto, despite all the money they've spent, looked pretty ordinary. Whether Wolfpack are strong enough to secure a Super League place under Brian McDermott's stewardship remains to be seen.

This was a tight, tense arm wrestle on the sort of wintry afternoon at Bootham Crescent (snow decorating the 'away end' terracing) that brought back happy memories of pre-1996 rugby league. Few scoring opportunities in the opening period. Gary Wheeler crossed in the corner after 25 minutes as Toronto capitalised on York conceding two closely-spaced penalties then knocking on. The dogged Knights stuck grimly at their tackling task after the break. In the 70th minute, quick hands, right to left, created an overlap for Toronto's Matty Russell to go over by the flag, though the final pass appeared forward. Wolfpack secured a flattering margin of victory by scoring a third try, in the the first minute of stoppage time. Josh McGrone grubbered on the last tackle and Joe Mellor won the foot race to make the touchdown. Adjacent to the posts, Gareth O'Brien added the extras.

Dewsbury are one of the rugby league clubs I try to visit at least once every season. York are at Ram Stadium next Sunday, so I shall probably head there.

Sunday 3 February 2019
London Broncos 42 Wakefield Trinity 24
Super League
Trailfinders


Admission: Mate lent me his season ticket
Programme: £3 - poor value
Attendance: 2,149


Great start for London, 18-6 down early on it looked like it would be a long afternoon and an even longer season but Broncos soon realised they could compete and in the end won with style and if they had converted all their kicks it would have been an even more embarrassing defeat for the Yorkshire side. Danny Brough seeing yellow for arguing towards the end summed up the day for Trinity.


Ground wise, nothing else like this in Super League! Good main stand and clubhouse and a temporary stand at the car park end, however near the entrance they have two temporary stands but both stick behind the corner flags but they do seem to be in the process of getting ready to build a stand behind the posts. Far side is standing with the dug outs and a very smart looking TV gantry - looks like it is from Ikea.

Sheffield Eagles 64 Swinton Lions 10
Championship
Att. 1,259
h/t 30-0
admission £5, programme £3

"We are top of the league, we are top of the league". I make no apology for opening with that as we're almost certainly not going to stop there! Swinton on the other hand looked nailed on yesterday to stay at the bottom. Poorest display I've ever seen from a team at this level. Bunch of whingers just like their fans, the worst being Rob Fairclough, (more like Rita), who constantly argued with all three officials about just about every tackle that was done. Admittedly he was flattened once or twice!

Credit to Eagles though who look like they're capable of surviving with plenty to spare this season, be interesting to see what they look like against the likes of Toronto and Fev.



We'll be, as we are, when all the fools who doubt us fade away.

Wednesday 6 February.

BUCS Premier North

Leeds Beckett v Northumbria 22-30

Moved forward two hours to a noon kick off due to pitch having been doublebooked. Cooleges league match due on at 2 pm, so I was told
Beckett scored two comverted tries early on amd looked to be taking control, However Nothumbria pulled six points back just before the interval. Three converted tries after the break put Nothumbria in command at 24-12. Beckett got another converted try with ten minutes left,, but a penalty goal and an unconverted try late on sealed it for the visitors.

East Leeds 16 Dewsbury Moor 20

Challenge Cup round 2

Admission £3 inc very basic prog

Attendance 300/350

Preferred revisit to new ground for friendly and rewarded very competitive fixture with one red and two yellows

Result puts away side in draw with teams from Championship 1

East Leeds were the first amateur club I saw at home, in the Challenge Cup in 2008. They since moved pitch but not
changing rooms and used two other venues, at Gipton and where there youth teams still play around the corner, whilst works were carried out
The local authority acquired their pitch for a new school and moved the team to what I assume was the school field.
The entrance is in the same place and the same steps are set tk get to the plateau on which the pitch is situated but now you turn right and the pitch is at 90 degrees to the old one. I doubt there is an overlap. It is a basic set up and railed off on all four sides

Cracking game at Ram Stadium. York, backed by a sizeable following, fought back from 0-16 and 18-22 behind to steal victory with a try in the 77th minute. Joe Porter got on the end of a cute Ben Cockayne grubber on the last tackle to tie the score. Connor Robinson landed the conversion then, from the last play of the match, iced York's cake with a 30-metre penalty.

Dewsbury, initially tackling well whenever York threatened their line, were in control after 49 minutes, by which time two converted tries and two penalties opened up a 16-0 lead. York turned the contest on its head by crossing three times in 10 minutes. Robinson added the extras to each try to give the visitors an 18-16 advantage. With nine minutes left, big Tom Garratt crashed over under the black dot for Paul Sykes's conversion to make it 22-18. A penalty then piggy-backed York down the field for that decisive score by Porter. The sin-binning, between the 64th and 74th minutes, of loose forward Kyle Trout, for infringing persistently at the play-the-ball, undoubtedly damaged Dewsbury's chances at a crucial stage. Neither coach will be remotely pleased about the number of penalties conceded (the referee was a little fussy) or the manner of some of the tries scored but, for the neutral, this was rip-roaring entertainment. I had the pleasure this afternoon of my Surrey-born and raised wife's company, and she thoroughly enjoyed a see-saw battle.

I had a real soft spot for Dewsbury's former ground, the open and exposed Crown Flatt, but have always viewed Ram Stadium, opened in 1994, as one of rugby league's better new-builds. Both seating and standing tiers are steeply raked, giving a fine view of the action. The addition of terracing behind the 'Ossett water tower end' goal completes a tidy set-up. A scenic panorama to the southwest includes Pennine hills and, inevitably, the Emley Moor telecommunications masts. The programme revealed Carlsberg has just renewed with Dewsbury a naming rights agreement therefore the ground will continue to be known as Tetley's Stadium.

Also at this one, a ground which had eluded me to date, and is decent as you say. It was £16 on the terrace, with a slightly cramped clubhouse underneath (no cask ale). A burger van provided the food options. Cracking game and we thought York deserved the win.

Called in at the West Riding Refreshment Rooms on the way and Leggers on the way back. Pick being the York Hansom Blonde, so a good day for York all round!
