When Super League came back to our TV screens, we decided to halt our updates on the BARLA Youtube channel until after the season.

Now a couple of weeks on from the Grand Final we are pleased to share the two games that have "gone live" in the last fortnight for your viewing pleasure.

The opening game featured the 2012 BARLA U18s National Cup Final when Rylands Sharks of Warrington clashed with Thatto Heath Crusaders of St Helens.

BARLA Vice Chair Steve Manning said, “We had a very successful launch of the BARLA You Tube Channel earlier this year whilst no rugby league was being played within the professional ranks and amateur level. When Super League and the Challenge Cup returned with live television action it was decided to close the opening series of games which had already been shown.

“The opening game was a cracker and I’m sure that the players and clubs that competed in that 2012 Under 18’s BARLA National Cup Final will watch to look back on memories of being involved in the game whether they were winners or losers.

“There are further exciting games to follow and we hope that it whets the appetite for those waiting to be involved playing the real game in 2021, but for the meantime, enjoy what the BARLA You Tube channel has to offer.”

The second game in the series went live yesterday and was a re-run of the 2012 Open Age National Cup Final between Queens of Leeds and rivals Sharlston Rovers of Wakefield.

Steve continued, “We had another very successful and positive launch of the return of new games onto the BARLA You Tube Channel last Saturday and we follow up that with the BARLA National Cup Final 2012 which featured Queens and Sharlston Rovers who then were two of the giants of the Pennine League and fierce rivals.

“This all Yorkshire final clash showed the rivalry between the two sides and what it meant to both sets of fans to come out as top dogs for the year. It will be a chance for former players of both sides to reflect on the game without feeling the bumps and bruising clash from the comfort of their own homes rather than on the field.

“We hope that you enjoy the action whether a regular follower of the game or new to the sport. You can also watch previous games that are on the channel featuring other great finals.”
