Cheshire have announced their side to visit Yorkshire on Saturday.

15. Dave Williamson (Lymm)
14. Ed Stobart (Sale Jets)
13. Tom Bray (Lymm)
12. Jamie Anthony (Stockport)
11. Craig Ross (Caldy)

10. Tom Foden (B’ham Solihull)
  9. Tom Chappell (Chester)

  1. Gavin Woods (Caldy)
  2. Tom Cruse (Stockport)
  3. Martin Kent (Coventry)
  4. Paul Ralph (Stockport)
  5. Dave Marwick (Stockport) Capt.
  6. Adam Bray (Lymm)
  7. JJ Dickenson (Caldy)
  8. Adam Kettle (unattach’d)

16. Bryn Snellgrove (Chester)
17. Alec Smith (Caldy)
18. Jack Parker (Caldy)
19. Tommy Taylor (Sale Jets)
20. Jan Anderson (Stockport)
21. Jack Collister (Caldy)
22. Jon Sewell (Caldy)

Plenty of young talent in this squad as well as the experienced heads who glue the side together. Also taken from a good mix of leagues, Macclesfield would obviously have players in the squad when their season's finished.

On the face of it this squad should score tries. Plenty of prolific scorers particularly in the backs.

Does anyone know the Yorkshire squad?

Injured. Went over on his ankle against Morley. Think he's unlikely to play, but he's in the squad.

I think you'll find that both the Bray brothers should be playing at a higher level.........
 
Yorkshire as always appear to be quiet as we rarely get an update on their website, the seniior sides page hasnt been updated since April last year.
 
does anyone know who is in the squad?

no matter how good they are for lymm in N3N they will not be used to a step up in intensity/skill

Snellgrove has been first choice 10 for Chester in there recent fixtures with Hayes making a succesful switch to 13.

Clearly doing something right to get picked for Cheshire. 

Why would you say 5 is to many from Chester and Lymm ratboy?

Good to see Tom Cruise is still willing to play county rugby even if most at level 4 and above can't be bothered.

Why the cheshire bashing rat my old friend. Would say that this side is a good mix of the best performers in the county and some old friends from years gone by. A similar blend being used by lancs, Warwickshire and the other northern county teams I've seen.

Rat Boy i'm afraid you are incorrect - they have both played at higher levels and could do so again. Both were courted by higher league clubs again this season.
However they are local Lymm lads appear to be happy to turn out for their local club which I find quite commendable.
However lets see where they play next year........

Yorkshire 10 - Cheshire 18

I wasn't at the game but by the looks of the result, and facing a strong Lancashire side at Fylde next week, it could be a relegation decider against Warwickshire in 2 weeks time.  Any chance of Andy Hodgson, Chris Malherbe, Simon Horsfall, Andy Baggett or Mark Bedworth in the back line next week instead of the current Harrogate and Otley collection?

There are a number of good players to pick from but they aren't (or haven't been) affiliated to Leeds so unlikely to get selected! The yorkshire team selection process is more than questionable!

Yesterdays game had the feeling of a preseason friendly - in terms of both the pace the game was played and the way the players were still getting used to each other.

I have no qualms that the best side won. 

As for selection, I can understand that a number of possible first choice selections were absent probably because their teams are still playing or the players themselves need a rest, but it is a Yorkshire side that does need bolstering, otherwise the Warwickshire game will be a relegation decider.

I do have an idea though. Next weeks game is at Fylde. Jason Robinson plays in the home games at Fylde and Jason Robinson is a Yorkshire man. Big smile

Oh and I forgot about James Doherty at 9 (although the Lancashire lot might have something to say about that).

Were there may there Richard?  Another thing that baffles me is the ground selection and why they pick venues such as Sheffield or Hull Ionians where little spectators are likely to turn up.  I don't know why they don't host a game at the Avenue where a crowd of at least 400 would be guaranteed at a superb location fitting of Yorkshire's finest.  The last (and possibly only) time the Avenue hosted a county game was some 9-10 years ago when Yorkshire had a pre-championship warm up/selection game against Durham.

What about awarding the winners of the Yorkshire cup the chance to host a county game as reward?

Not sure if there's something I am missing out on, but it has been well documented that Cornish Pirates don't release players for county rugby.

Maybe scrap that one then. I'm getting carried away with the hopes of a greens reunion, at the Avenue, for the white rose.

Not many - I don't know, maybe a couple of hundred? Gone have the days that thousands squash into Cross Green or Clarence Fields. Cry I would imagine that Fylde will be busier - I will be there to cheer on the White Rose.

I don't know how the County choose the grounds - I wonder if clubs stick their arm up and volunteer their facilities. I don't have a problem with them being shared around the County - we have some excellent facilities in the Broad acres that are worthy of hosting the County side.

On the issue of crowds, the trouble is the Yorkshire RFU hardly ever publicise the tournament - or the County Cups. I would imagine it is left to the hosting club to do their best - and the trouble at this time of the season, is that peoples thoughts are drifting onto their holidays....Wink

PS, Good idea about the YC winners hosting a game. Suggest it to the YRFU.

It baffles me, that Yorkshire would choose to play Cheshire at Abbeydale, which is closer to Cheshire than almost any other ground in the County, and probably the most difficult ground to get to from most of Yorkshire!!
I`m not at all surprised that there were very few people there to watch, and that Cheshire won the game!
Yorkshire seem intent on making life difficult for themselves,
There are many venues in the County, who would be happy to host a County game, so why not choose one which makes it easier for your players ans supporters to get to?
