And Hull I's make it wins for all 3 of the bottom Clubs.
Rosslyn Park 29 - 30 Hull Ionians. Great effort from the boys today and one in the eye for all of those who put us down for a 5-0!

Still all to play for.

Outstanding performance by Macclesfield today. They may be already relegated but the efforts in the last few weeks against Birmingham Moseley, Plymouth Albion and now Blackheath means they can hold their heads up with pride. Great effort lads.

Makes things very interesting for Fylde, who are by no means safe. If they go 0-2 in the remaining games and Blaydon and Hull both go 2-0, I think Fylde are relegated.

I enjoyed today's game at Cambridge immensely except for the result. 12 tries scored and a good 43 points to 40 win for Blaydon. Grand bunch of rugby people. Strange though, I come back with some hollow feeling thinking why didn't Cambridge win by so many more? Why did the referee bring us back for that quickly taken line out where we scored a try only for Blaydon to score from the retaken lineout? It was the pivotal moment in the match and would have put us 11 points clear. Frustrating. Annoying. Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow. Drinking my first beer for 25 years.

It is frowned upon to mention refereeing decisions that go against you when you've lost. Frustrating as it can be and as much as you have my sympathy, I suspect if other people had posted that the baying mob would already be out in strength.

I concur absolutely and had logged on tonight to delete the post as I'm normally the one to uphold that rule. Team of three were actually very good and we lost. End of. Apologies to the forum.

No apologies necessary. You are entitled to your opinion. The officials are not exempt from observation and criticism where appropriate.
Don't let the 'cannot play without them' brigade worry you.

FHLH we were brought back as the thrower had a foot in the field of play, which the players admitted was the case.

Cambridge were sometimes sublime but made too many mistakes.
Blaydon were limited but did the basics well and player to their strengths.

Just shows the difference between National 2 and National 1.
We need to take those lessons on board over the summer and come back stronger next season.

Home season finale in the sun for Albion yesterday v Ampthill. Big crowd turned out for the clash of the also-rans. If last week's away game at Macc was a potential Goliath v David banana skin, this was destined to be a full-on attritional slug-out with the chance of some dazzling finishing. And it went to script...

With a half hour delay due to cows on the A38 at Exe, there was possibly a little less heat in the sun. but no lack of turbulence in a swirling sea breeze. The first half almost played out with nought on the scoreboard after declined/failed penalty attempts. Then As 15 flashed through to score under the posts with a straightforward conversion. Albion retaliated with something more primal and Cowan-Dickie touched down after a driving maul; 7 - 7 at the break.

Another failed pen for the visitors kept it at parity early on - not the day for high lofted balls from the boot, even with the wind advantage. Albion then went for more might over guile to go 7 up from another maul. Still not much in it down on the field and Lynch again pulled off a similar coup; 14 - 14 as the clock started to wind down.

But Albion don't do draws, especially at home. The mostly honest grind continued until former PARFC favourite Gully saw yellow. Then the Albion pressure told in the red zone with an unconverted try. Game over at 74 mins? Not so - Ampthill came back and the home side almost came unstuck as the action switched ends. Another yellow (Albion 9, the ever-reliable Shepherd) and it all got edgy. A penalty kick declined in favour of a late rush for the home try line was repulsed and eventually a final infringement saw the ball hoofed to touch.

Local boy Pully got Player of the Season from the 'erald, Shepherd got MoTM from the match sponsors and Wedlake got a bottle of bubbles from the supporters fundraisers for being a Good Egg in March. Skipper Herbie Stupple got an award for 100 caps which is a testament to dogged determination to overcome eye-watering injuries over a five year spell at Brickfields. The whole crowd of 1 600 got value for money - and a little hot under the collar as the bar queues lengthened prior to KO.

A great way to finish a home campaign. Albion have elected for continuity in 2017/8 - most of the squad have re-signed and there have been few departures. Next year would appear to be a more level field, but is there enough to come from this batch to overcome potential improvements at Cov, BM, Park, Club and the rest? That's the one to ponder over the summer...
Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

IIRC people have mentioned using "scanner" equipment for exactly this purpose on these forums before. Clear signals from match officials would go some way towards reducing this need, although that relies on spectators knowing the signals and being able to put them into context. To be fair, as far as I can see, there is no signal for foot in play, possibly because yesterday was the first time in recorded history that it had been awarded!

The signal is for the TJ/AR to stand their ground with the flag up indicating an incorrect throw-in, but that does not differentiate between wrong ball, ball touched, not straight, not five metres or foot in play - though the resulting restart splits those into two groups.

Does anyone know the RFU frequency or is it changed each match? Maplin have a suitable scanner at £49.99
