Spirit of Rugby- great respect for Bury 2nd's (Continued) The ethics of the Leagues are appreciated - getting as many games played as possible !!!
See notes from Gerald Williams of the Liverpool St. Helens Club
See from one of our respected Association Referees !! Yes they do receive a great deal of respect from all our players !!!!
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.

6th Feb Cup Saturday
This weekend is a designated Cup weekend but there are also a number of league matches being played. Priority must be given to Cup matches before Raging Bull North West League matches. Also for Cup matches if there is any doubt about the condition of the pitch, both sides must pursue the possiblility of reversing the venue of the game.
Saturday 6th Feb
Hi Ladies, Gents, I'm sure you'll realise we need all games played and now especially, as we move into the 6 Nation Saturdays. Normal K.O. time is 2,15p.m. This is usual but it is not a hard and fast Rule in fact there is no Rule. Please if you can reach an agreement kick off at any time that can be mutually agreed. Friday under lights maybe. !! Sunday whatever, but let's get games played. F.S.
Firwood Waterloo 3s and 4s.
Unfortunately yesterday both Firwood Waterloo 3s and 4s conceded their 4th games of the season. Under Rule 19 they will be removed from the Leagues. Hopefully they can play some friendlies for the rest of the season and re-enter next time.

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.
