Only the top 3 in each group qualify this year, so it is even more important that we win our first three matches when we have all 5 of our England players available. None of the 5 will be available for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and maybe not even the Final if we get there.

The knockout stages have changed this season, with only the top three from each group qualifying. The winners will progress straight to the semi finals on June 16 and 17, in which they will enjoy home advantage. Their opposition will be determined by two play-offs on June 13 between the teams finishing second and third in each group – second in the North Group at home to third in the South, and vice versa.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Rhodes and Waite involved in this format.

Fisher also.

Could have a youthful team something like this considering pur England players.

I could see this team. An oportunity for our fringe/developing players and protection to some of our ageing players.

Lees
Leaning
Ballance C

As I look out at the hail and almost snow lashing the window I just hope the weather bucks it ideas up pretty sharpish.

There are some very attractive RL50 matches coming up over this bank holiday weekend and this revamped competition needs some help from the weather to get off to a good start.

The success of the competition can only be judged by an increase in the number of spectators and interest it creates, the first few matches with International players available is vital, especially for us.

According to todays "Press", Liam is fit to play from Saturday onwards (he plays tomorrow for the 2nd`s in a 50 over match at York), and Brooks & Siddy will be fit again for our next 4 day CC match mid-May v Lancs.

Minimum of three wins from our first 3 games is needed if we have any hopes of qualifying, as our team -5 will find it very difficult to win any more after that, plus it is only the top 3 this year.

Another problem we have is our appalling record at Headingley in 50/40 over cricket. Just 3 wins from our last 14 matches in this format at Headingley.

Every previous season, we used to have a "get out of jail" card when we played two matches at Scarborough, as we have a much better record there. Now every white ball match will be at Headingley, where we are useless.

Brimming with confidence as usual, Stu 😉. Don't underestimate our youngsters, they might just surprise you.

We play Lancs on Headingley on May Bank Holiday Monday. This has happened before, we collapsed & lost easily ... sadly I've now no way of finding ting the score online. The match is live on Sky. Is it worth travelling?

I think only you can make that decision. What has happened before is no guide to what might happen this time.

We have a remarkably strong team available, some of whom may feel they have a lot to prove.

Luckily for me I should be able to speed through watching the coast bound A64 traffic build up in the morning and vice versa on my way back home in the evening.

Providing the forecast reads at least 12 degrees centigrade think it should be a cracking day and hope it brings in a few bob for the club.

Seadog-- Just trying to be realistic on our chances.

Hopefully the youngsters will play out of their skins, and we win all 4 matches at home and get the Headingley hoodoo of our backs.

It is time that HQ became fortress Headingley!!

I wonder who he was practising with. Everyone seemed to be at York today apart from Ballance & Root.
