Garstang 2(53) vs Burnley 3(24) Division 4 North
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.

Sandbach 2(17) vs Fylde 2(83) Premier League
A notice from Crewe and Nantwich and geat News on behalf of Bowdon RUFC !! Interesting tale provided by Les Briers C & N . We know we are experiencing high numbers of concedes, there seems to be a number of reasons for this, but perhaps the biggest reason is the impact of the World Cup. Remember, and we know it occurs, you can travel with 5 players - yes 5 players - and levelling up will be in place by the home or away Club in line with the Rules. !!!

Bury 2(20) vs Rochdale 3(19) Division 3 North
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.
