Xmas Climbing Trip

Our Christmas event this year will take place on Sunday 23rd December at the Dynamic Rock Climbing Wall in Clydach. We have arranged for an introductory 2 hour session for the boys, with climbing, abseiling and bouldering. We have organised a special introductory rate from the centre so the cost will be £10 per player, which will include some snacks. We will meet at 10:00 at the Centre, and should be finished at about 12:30. Please check your availability and let me know by teamer so we can tell the Club how many are coming, and we can start collecting the cash. It would be great for the team to have a good turn out and do something other than rugby for a change.

Those wondering about the annual parents match. Don't worry, we will do this over the xmas break on the beach!

100 Club

A message from Robin, our Junior Chairman. If anyone is interested please let Mike know and he will get you an application form to set up the standing order.

Hi All
I am not sure if you are aware of the 100 club started by Gareth Bennett.
For £10.00 per month you will be entered for a quarterly draw for £500.00 (there has already been 2 winners ) and £50.00 every other month. There will also be 4  lunches each year. All profits will go to rugby matters, ie the beach rugby kit was purchased from this fund . An application form is attached and I would appreciate if this can be passed to as many parents, grandparents, social contacts etc.
If you have any queries please contact Gareth or myself.
Thanks  Robin

Uplands Match - OFF

Don't forget training at Astroturf this Friday 4:30

Unsurprisingly the match is OFF tomorrow. No chance of play with the pitches soaked.

On Fridays we are going to stick to Astroturf EVERY WEEK. It worked well sharing with the u13s so we won't bother with the park unless the weather dramatically improves.

This weekend we are at Swansea Uplands. The match will be played on the Fairwood Lane pitch, just off Gower Road. This is the pitch you pass on the way to the Uplands clubhouse and main pitches, which are all out of action due to re-developments. Ups send their apologies for no food after the match as the clubhouse is closed.

We will have two matches. The first kicking off at 10:45. Whole squad is invited, teams will be posted here later. If everyone meets at 10:30 we can have a quick warm up.

No Match This Weekend

Hendy don't have an u11s, and we have texted everywhere without any luck in finding a game, so it is a week off for all.

Back in training on Friday at 4:30 at astroturf.

After last night at the park we have decided to move the park training to 4:30 as well. Sorry this is early, but it is consistent with the astroturf and will also allow us to play in front of the changing rooms before the under 16s arrive. This part of the park is in much better condition than the swings area which was a bog even after a pretty low rainfall week.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO USE THE AMAZON LINK! We get 5% back on all purchases, so with 25 boys and all their brothers and sisters to buy for over the next few weeks that should be a tidy little earner for the team.

Training at Underhill

Remember we are alternating park with astroturf on Fridays, so it is back to Underhill this week. We will be training under the lights 5:00 till 6:00. It is a bit awkward to have a different start time to astro, but a little less rush to be there for 5:00.

This weekend we will rotate the players and pick a matrix team as only 1 normal length game is an option. Teamer will go out ASAP.

Remember the Mum's lunch next Saturday

Waunarlwydd Away 10:00 Meet

Our match at Waun has been moved to a 10:00 meet (10:30 KO). This is so we can play on their main pitch, so good news with all the rain about.

Friday training at ASTROTURF 4:30 prompt

We have the formidable challenge of Waunarlwydd this weekend. Due to the high chance of cancellations this time of year, and because Waun have agreed to a long (3 halves) match, we can invite all the boys to take part to give them some rugby. Meet at Waun RFC at 10:30.

Coming up..... please pencil in the morning of Sunday Dec 23rd for our Christmas Event, which will be a session at the climbing wall in Clydach . Details to follow. This will be instead of the usual parents match, which will still take place, but will be moved to the beach and will take place over the Xmas hols.

Kenfig Hill Match Off

No rugby this Sunday as the pitches at Bishopston are not playable after all the heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday.

In good time we have booked some astroturf sessions. These will run on Friday evenings at Ashleigh Road from 4:30 to 5:30. Starting next Friday (9th). We are sharing the booking with the u13s, so will have the astroturf every other week. We will alternate Fridays at Astro with, hopefully, Fridays under the lights at the park so we can include contact sessions (these will run at 5-6 as normal). We know it is an early start at astro, but this is the only available slot. We would be very grateful if everyone could try and get there for 4:30 on the dot so we can make the most of the booking. Anyone needing lift shares can let me know and we can try and match people up.

Plan for Winter...

Unfortunately we decided to cancel training for this afternoon due to Underhill Park being a mud bath and heavy showers forecast for the remainder of the day.

With the winter months now upon us, training will be moved to the AstroTurf at Ashleigh Road. The first session for this will be Friday 9th November, time to be confirmed on here during the week. Please check back for updates during the week.

Match still on for Sunday at Bishopston, see you there at 10.30.
