14.1.3 “Transfer Deadline” means:
(a) For Clubs at Level 3 and below: [22 February 2019], the Waiting Period (if
applicable) having been completed before the Transfer Deadline is reached.
(b) For Clubs at Level 1 (Premiership) and Level 2 (Championship): 22 March 2019, the Waiting Period (if applicable) having been completed before the Transfer Deadline is reached.

I hope this helps.
Rucks and mauls may bust my balls, but whips and chains excite me!!

Blues 44-35 Yorkshire

Blues playing with 1 injured player and a back as a flanker

Referee is losing control of the game by not using his card as much as he should be.

Other way around Stalwart ;) Hard not to be gutted by this as the game was there for the taking. However, after such a short turnaround after a hugely physical encounter at Ealing, and losing a number of key players to injury, I'd say a bonus point is a positive result for us.

Was really hoping blues would win so my next message doesn’t come across as sour grapes. But I have never come away from a game being so disgusted with an oppositions play. YC received, I think, 3 sin bins that game? They should’ve had 5 or 6. The only reason they weren’t getting more was the ref probably felt silly giving more cards, but they would’ve been deserved.

There was a clear and obvious plan to target our full back Rich Lane. Anybody that has seen Bedford play this season will know he a key player and arguably the most dangerous broken field runner in the league. Consistently throughout the game, YC were putting high balls up for him then deliberately taking him out in the air. When he was running, they put in a few tackles round the neck for good measure. The poor guy was barely able to walk at the end of the game and had, understandably, stopped jumping for high balls through fear of his own safety.

In fairness, the ref usually blew for penalties and did give a couple of cards, but they should’ve had more. Reminds me of the famous New Orleans NFL scandal where they giving bounties for injuring certain players. I even asked one of the Leeds coaches if it was a deliberate tactic to try and injure him deliberately and I just received a wry grin. At the moment, I would take some convincing it was not a pre conceived plan to try and injure Rich Lane. It seems whenever we play YC they seem more up for a fight than a game of rugby.

Does anyone else who was at the Bedford game agree/disagree?

The Bedford twitter feed would suggest I am not the only person who shares this view. Yorkshire players/coaches have a lot to answer for I think. Lane was incredibly lucky to escape without serious injury and not enough was done to protect him from the officials.

There were a shed-load (6-3 I think), and with the Reds scoring 4 in 22 mins, the contest was over effectively, with one side rampant and the other shell-shocked and making numerous errors. The Knights stemmed the tide, and were decent in parts after the break, but the home side finished strongly and scored twice in the closing stages...

Certainly a case for a red card how the ref did not give a card for the high tackle and the taking out the man in the lineout is amazing. But fair play to Leeds they played the the ref to the limit. Leeds did play some great rugby in the second half after they had beaten up up the blues for sixty minutes

Jersey's blitz in the first quarter killed the match as a contest but it was genuinely great to see them come out of the blocks with such intensity. Jersey often elect to play down the hill in the second half but last night they were up for it from the start and the immense pressure lead to repeated Donny errors and try after try. Credit to Donny for pulling things together in the third quarter when they were the better side but the match was already lost. Donny are a far better side than they showed in the first quarter, Quigley remains a total legend in my book and Stedman & particularly Rory Pitman had huge games. A great crowd on a cold night and Donny are still the team I most closely measure Jersey against.

I was thinking more of the overall total for the night. Something like 26 between three games is quite high. I believe there were 12 in the Bedford/Leeds game alone.

The Reds really came out of the traps last night and I think that they caught Donny on the hop. It was akin to how England started against France. Hard chase on the kicks, quick rush defence and moved the ball at lightning pace when in possession. Very impressive. I think that the motivation was to put the truly dreadful performance against LS well and truly to bed and they certainly did that.
Poor Knights, just about everything went wrong for them in the first half. Turn over a 5 metre line out only to have the kick charged down and watch the Jersey player win the race for the touchdown. The bounce of a superb kick through seemed to just hang in front of the Full Back and let the Winger snatch the ball away and run in under the posts. When in attack fumbled passes and kicks to the corner going dead instead of finding touch. To be fair, the Knights were much improved in the 2nd half and rightfully won it 21-14, but as CC has already said, the damage had been done by that first quarter onslaught.
Great entertainment for a decent Friday night crowd.

Like yourselves injuries have hit Nottingham hard our first choice front row are all out as are a number of other regulars, we ended up with a hooker playing flanker and the flanker second row. Massive defensive effort held Pirates out putting a big smile on the fans faces .  Wish this game was still on a Sunday happy memories of the Pirates fans staying over on a Saturday night and having a cracking match day atmosphere.
