The 5 point away wins for Nottsv Ampthill& Bedford VCarnegie do not compare to Pirates home 5point win V Ealing.

13/10/2019 18:23
Yes, Pirates had the best result. Hartpury, Carnegie and Ampthill likely to be propping up the table.

1 win from 1 which was played away in awful conditions
We have lots of quality unavailable which will start returning over the next few weeks
Improvement required ? Yes. Cause for concern? No

Falcons top the table on 13 points, after the win against the Pirates.

27/10/2019 17:14
Only the Falcons at home out of the top 4 next week so a good opportunity to build the lead.

27/10/2019 17:23
Good point alas, especially as the next match at KP is against Jersey Reds on 11 points (third in table; Coventry on 11 points second in table).

I know some people are miffed re performances but we're top by 9. Personally, this is better than last time we played in this division.

Yorkshire Carnegie v Ampthill postponed

This afternoon’s Greene King IPA Championship game between Yorkshire Carnegie and Ampthill has been postponed due to the impact of Storm Ciara.

Following an inspection of Emerald Headingley Stadium this morning and following safety advice regarding the dangers of travel it has been decided to postpone the fixture. A re-arranged date will be agreed in due course and announced accordingly.

All tickets purchased for today’s game will be valid for the new date or can be returned to Emerald Headingley for a full refund.

Disciplinary hearing: Doncaster Knights

Doncaster Knights has received a five-point deduction for the 2019-20 Greene King IPA Championship season.

This was for a breach of RFU Agent Regulations 8.4.2 – use of an unregistered agent and 5.12 – activity prejudicial to the interests of the Union and/or the game. The RFU Agent Regulations were created to ensure a minimum level of standard and quality control in the activities of rugby agents operating or conducting business in the home unions.

The case against Doncaster Knights, the player (Dan Suter) and the agent (Andy Blaylock) was heard by an independent disciplinary panel comprising Matthew Weaver (chair) with Oliver Clark and Ian Unsworth QC.

The club, Suter and Blaylock admitted the charges and in addition to the points’ deduction, the following sanctions were given by the independent disciplinary panel:

Doncaster Knights received a £1,500 fine suspended for two years from 22 November 2019 to be triggered in the event that the club uses the services of or engages with an unregistered agent at any point within that two-year period.

Dan Suter received a reprimand and a two-match ban, suspended for a period of two years from 22 November 2019 to be triggered in the event that the player uses the services of an unregistered agent at any point within that two-year period.

Andy Blaylock received a 12-month suspension from being involved in the administration of rugby union from 4 April 2020. For the avoidance of doubt, “administration” includes, but is not limited to, acting in the capacity of an agent, representative or adviser (whether registered or unregistered) of any player or club.

In the judgment the independent panel confirmed, as per RFU regulations, that an unregistered agent may not act in any way in the capacity of agent, representative or adviser to a club or a player, whether directly or indirectly, in the negotiation, arrangement or execution of any employment transaction or contract of employment.

It also noted that using a registered agent to sign off any such contract or negotiations which have been conducted using an unregistered agent does not prevent a breach of the regulations.
