PLAYER-coach Andy Robinson has left Yorkshire Division Four champions Wibsey and has re-joined Bradford Salem, who he left before the start of the 2017-18 season.

Annoyed about the lack of dedication from the Villagers, such as only having 13 players available by last Thursday for a match at Rotherham Phoenix that was ultimately postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, he said: "I feel that I have taken the squad as far as I can with the commitment levels that are there."

Wibsey chairman Steve Brooke said: "Leaving things to one man was probably a bit too much.

"Last season the lads might have had a two-week break from matches where they could do other things but this season in Yorkshire Division Three that is not the case, and when you pick up injuries it becomes too much for one person to do."

Wibsey have elevated Rob Greenwood from their coaching staff to become director of rugby, with prop John Bradbury coaching the forwards and utility player Harry Hall looking after the backs.

Greenwood and Brooke will continue to share the duties of treasurer, while Alex Cerson has been appointed as vice-captain, with Mark Darragh remaining as captain.

James Brown will help out Bradbury with coaching the forwards, but Hall still needs an assistant to help out with the backs.

Wibsey, who have two games in hand, are seventh in Yorkshire Division Three, having won half of their eight matches, while Salem are third from bottom (12th) in Yorkshire Division One with one game in hand.

Salem chairman Neil Klenk said: "Andy Robinson trained with us on Tuesday at Bradford Grammar School but will have to fight for his place."
