Mid Week Match - OFF AGAIN!

Sorry all. Just heard from Matthew that the pitch at Gorseinon is too hard to play on, and especially with very cold temperatures expected once it gets dark it is definitely best to Cancel. We will play this match at some point (but also definitely not next Wednesday).

Directions HERE.

Any problem with lifts please contact Mike (text: 07846 334 962).

Forwards: Harry, Myles, Jack, Connor, Kieran, Tom R
Backs: Fin, Luke, Neil, Sam, TTS, Jacob

Lost Training Top!

Did anyone pick up Dylan's Training Top at the South Gower game at Bishopston last week? It looks like all the other ones, but has Dylan's Initials (D something C) on the front. I don't think it was left down there so can everyone please check their rugby bags just in case you picked it up. Given Mike a text if you find it (07846 334962).

Well done to the lads who braved the mud this morning. We found new teams to play against, and both short matches were very evenly balanced.

Weekend Plans


The Skewen match is off (waterlogged pitch). So far things are looking OK for the Briton Ferry match. As we did not have training we will invite all to this match, but there will only be one game unfortunately. So if you are struggling to get there, don't worry as we will have plenty of players. The good news is another team, Abercrave are coming, which will be fun, but due to pitch availability we will only be able to play a short (half) match against each of them, with some training on the sidelines in between.

All meet at Briton Ferry at 10:15. Directions: basically through Briton Ferry centre and up the hill on the right. Map HERE.

Training details.... We will be moving back to the park on Fridays for training, but with the bad weather and the pitch at Underhill already a mess we won't bother this week. Next week we will have to start back at training at 4 - 5, because of the light. As soon as we can we will move to 4:30 as the light improves, and will aim long term to have the 5 - 6 slot as our standard training time.

Mid Week Match - OFF

Just heard from Gorseinon that today's match is OFF

Sorry about the late notice, they were OK yesterday, but the rain all today did the damage. We hope to rearrange - same team, same players, for next Wednesday.

Great performance on Sunday. All the coaches were very impressed that we could field two full sides that could both dominate in the way they did.

The invites for the midweek match have gone out. If anyone has transport issues, text Mike and we can arrange some lift sharing.

Meet 5:45 (latest) at Gorseinon RFC (directions HERE, it is pretty much in the middle of Gorseinon) on WEDNESDAY:

Weekend Plans

P.S. don't forget food provided back at the clubhouse afterwards....

Slight change of plan for the week, and a complicated selection. We have had a call from South Gower and they have built up their squad size and are keen on playing 1.5 matches (three 15 min periods). This won't be possible for the midweek match at Gorseinon, which will be normal length and where we will only want to take 1 team. So we will split the teams as follows: all invited on Sunday, but majority of the match (30 mins) will be played by one set of players. The others will sub on and off and get some game time (15 mins). These players will then play the whole match on Wednesday. I hope this makes sense. We understand if players would rather the morning off and concentrate on Wednesday. God knows if this will go to plan on the day - but that is what we are trying to do. Maximise game time and balance sides.

Meet at 10:00 at Bishopston for a warm up and to sort the teams out.

"Full match" (2 periods) on Sunday: TTS, Owen, Josh, Cam, Luca, Arthur, Duncan, Ike, Lloyd, Ethan
"Subs" on Sunday (1 period): Jack, Harry, Finn, Myles, Neil, Tom R, Sam, Jacob, Kieran, Connor, Luke

Full match at Gorseinon on Wednesday: Dylan, Jack, Harry, Finn, Myles, Neil, Tom R, Sam, Jacob, Kieran, Connor, Luke
