The views of director of rugby Kieran Lawry after the 14-11 win in the replayed game at Dinnington

“WE NEGOTIATED the long and arduous trip to Dinnington for the second time this season and once again demonstrated our battling qualities to come away with a good win despite playing nowhere near our best.

“We are still unsure of the points deduction that we have supposedly had taken from us as the information (or lack of it) coming from the league organisers has been as poor as always.

“This is an organisational set up that makes the Football Association look professional in comparison.

“Hopefully the full decision will be announced soon and we can see where our league promotion chances lie.

“Whatever the outcome we are determined to compete right up to the final minute of the season and still have a lot to play for, including a huge Yorkshire Shield semi-final to squeeze in.

“This week we host York in what promises to be an excellent game with two sides who like to play fast running, attacking rugby.

“We are still struggling with a couple of injuries to key players although there is some light on the horizon with the news that top try scorer Regan Stirk is pushing for a recall after his various injuries responded well to some intensive psychotherapy.

“Away from the pitch it is with huge sadness that I yet again have to offer all our heartfelt condolences to the families of Trevor Owen and John Medforth, two more stalwarts of the club who have recently and tragically passed away.

“Trevor supported the club for many years whilst “Meddy” was father and grandfather of first team players Richard and Robert.

“Both Trevor and John were real gents of the club and will be greatly missed.

“They also add to the growing list of familiar faces we will no longer have the pleasure of sharing a post match beer with. The lads will certainly be keen to give them both a fitting send off on Saturday.”
