Halbro North West Leagues Providing grass roots rugby since 2002

Rossendale 3rds travel with 5 players

Please note our rules in operation.

The Rossendale 3rd XV had only 5 players available Saturday 22nd Jan. Fylde had 22, Rossendale decided to travel, exchange of players took place and a game involving 12 v 13 took place. The referee was also coming back from a long term injury and appreciated the efforts of both sides.

The rules are set to help a situation such as this and it must be hoped many games might get played in a similar situation.

Please note Rule 17. Much maligned in many cases our Rules do encourage games to be played in circumstances as above.

Thanks to both sides in their efforts to get this game played in a great spirit.!!!
