After an incident in the Fylde 2s - Preston Grasshoppers 2s we must once again emphasise that the Man off Rule does not apply when going uncontested in The Raging Bull NW Leagues. To prevent going uncontested Fylde moved a back row player up to prop to maintain a full complement. Dangerous and unwarranted. No Man off Rule in our Leagues Gentlemen. Referees and Clubs please note. F.S.
I have been requested to ask all Clubs to update the details of all the Club contacts.
ACTON NOMADS ----- HELP !!!!!!
Players must be minimum 17yrs old & 18yrs old for front row

Please see below a brief report of the Garstang Blues (2nds) vs Burnley 3rds in Four North from last Saturday. I thought it was worth submitting given the fact that Burnley only had seven men but Garstang encouraged them to turn up anyway and 23 men got a game of rugby.
