This week's plans

Match vs Dunvant on Sunday 22nd. Teamer notifications have been sent, team in post below. Meet at Bishopston at 10:15. For everyone's information, we will try and play at Underhill if we can, but the two pitches there are given priority according to age group (or cup match). So this year unfortunately we will switch back and forth depending on other fixtures.

Training on Friday at 5:00. Please be there for a prompt start.

As a member of the Club, you are entitled to enter into the draw for the Club allocation of Six Nations tickets. There is a noticeboard next to the downstairs bar, with a list that you can add your name and contact number if you would like to be entered into the draw. Alternatively you can email Robin Bonham, the junior Chairman ( In recent years the allocation has not been heavily over-subscribed, and there is a reasonable chance of getting tickets. This season the matches are:

Italy. Sat 1st Feb. 14:30. £55, £35, £25
France. Fri 21st Feb. 20.00. £75, £50, £30
Scotland. Sat 15th Mar. 14.45. £60, £40, £25
(note the cheaper prices are much less common).

The Matrix Returns

Great to see everyone get lots of game time for the first time on the big pitch last week. Now that we will be moving to just one game per weekend, we will move to the matrix system of picking match day squads of about 20. We think this is the right balance between having the subs we need on a big pitch and with hard knocks, and having enough meaningful time on the pitch for each player. The matrix will be chosen in advance for 4 games. With all players involved in at least 3 of them. We will let everyone know in advance, so you can book your Sunday lie in. Please be aware that working out these combinations never works perfectly (due to certain positions required and due to last minute changes), so we will try our best to even things out over the course of lots of games during the season, and not precisely every single week. We will review it after the first full round, to see if we need to have more players sharing certain positions, such as front row for example.

Training this Friday 5:00 at Underhill. Please be there prompt. It is hard to structure our session if everyone drifts in gradually.

Match this Sunday is Loughor away. Team for this (and the next 4 weekends) will be printed here asap.
