Wednesday, 20 November 2013


Remember we are alternating training at Astroturf and Underhill. This week we are at UNDERHILL on FRIDAY, 17:00 under the lights.

Wrap up warm, it will be cold when the sun goes down.

For the next 3 games we will have a small number at Morriston Away, and a small number for Skewen at Home, to maximise game time. Then for Fall Bay at home we will invite everyone.

Wednesday Training

Anyone caught playing football on Wednesdays is sacked. Obviously there is a clash with footie on Wednesday, but please make sure the boys don't worry about missing rugby. We could not get any other time and it will only be for a few weeks. So for the moment we will do every other Wednesday at astro, and every other Friday at Underhill. We will also continue our longer warm up sessions on a Sunday before the match. It really does not matter what sport the boys do on a Wednesday - as long as everyone is running about keeping fit.

Match on Sunday - last round of the current matrix, so boys who have not played as much over last few weeks will get big game time. Meet at Underhill 10:15. Match vs Gowerton on the Junior Pitch.

Injury Update

Get well soon to Fin (broken wrist) and Owen (neck strain). We will miss their key contributions on a Sunday morning for a few weeks.

Parents and coaches social

Don't forget the parents and coaches night out this Friday. We thought we would have some informal drinks before the xmas season kicks in. Meet at White Rose at 8:00. Who knows after that. All hangers-on welcome.

Weekly News

No training tonight for obvious reasons. We do however have access to astroturf this year again, and the first session will be next Wednesday 17:30 - 18:30. Apologies to those who can't make this time, it was the only slot available. Players must not worry if they can't be there, it is a stop gap until Feb and we will continue our longer warm up sessions on a Sunday before matches. If we do get a dry run we will also do some Fridays. We will do Astro at least every other Wednesday (probably more often).

We are back to a matrix selection this Sunday for the match at neighbours South Gower. This is especially important this week, as we have been forewarned that due to several events, quite a few of the SG lads are away and numbers might be tight. We appreciate Steve letting us know in advance so we can plan accordingly. Teamer for the matrix selection will be sent later today. Match day squad to meet at 10:45 at Pwll Du Lane. The final matrix game in this round will be at home against Gowerton next week. At the end of that match, all players in the squad will have been invited to 10 matches already this season, which shows we think the value of the matrix approach with more quality time on the day.

Anniversary Event

A message from our Chairman Martin Rodwell:

This coming Saturday 9/11 a Mumbles XV play a Glamorgan County XV in Underhill Park k.o. 1.30 p.m. The game is a celebration match to mark our 125 Year Anniversary and is being played now because of the problems we had last season with the pitch! After the game, in the clubhouse, there will be a presentation made by Glamorgan County in recognition of 125 Years of Mumbles Rugby Club. In addition, we will of course be showing Live, the Wales .v. South Africa match k.o. 5.30 p.m. It would be great to see you all in Underhill Park and in the club afterwards to acknowledge our long association with Glamorgan County and share the celebration of this final event of our 125 Year Anniversary.  Please share this message with your friends and family and let's give Glamorgan County a day to remember in Mumbles Rugby Club. Look forward to seeing you all at the match or in the club afterwards.
