THE second annual Doncaster Touch & Pass (Rugby) League is up and running.

The league, being run by Dons’ boss Tony Miller, who works for the Rugby Football League, was hosted by Toll Bar Amateur Rugby League Club last year, but all games are being staged at Wheatley Hills Rugby Union Club this time round between 6.30pm-8pm on Thursdays.

The league got underway last week with Bentley taking on newcomers Wabtec.

The league is open to teams from both rugby codes, football teams, cricket teams, pub teams and works’ teams.

Miller, who is still accepting entries, is hoping to run a ‘serious’ competition and a ‘social’ league.

Teams are made up of a maximum of ten players, with a maximum of six players on the pitch at any given time. There is no limit to the number of times that players can be subbed during a game.

Games last for 40 minutes and there is no kicking. Any infringements such as a forward pass or knock-on, results in a turnover of possession.

There are no league fees for teams, but players are charged £2 each per night.

The money raised during the season will go towards funding a junior rugby league team.
