Please bring change of clothes for the boys for Sunday. After the match they can use the changing rooms and put clean clothes on to go into the clubhouse.
Fingers crossed for Sunday. There is good drainage at St Helens so we expect it to be on. If not we have paid for the buffet so will just go ahead with a Xmas social!
Thanks in advance to Jill for organising the food and the Presidential Suite for us! Rugby has moved on in recent years with the Regions, but the boys could learn a little about the heritage on their doorstep represented by this iconic ground. Wales played many internationals at St Helens, with over 50,000 people cramming in to watch victories over England, Ireland, Scotland and France. Swansea became the first club side in the world to defeat South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, all at St Helens. On top of that is the cricket, being the home of Glamorgan for so long and the scene where Gary Sobers hit a maximum 36 in one over for the first time in first class cricket history. Because of the cricket pitch, St Helens built up he reputation of one of the best playing surfaces in all of rugby. We look forward to seeing the boys enjoy it this weekend.
Meet at 9:45 at St Helens for a warm up.We need to kick off on time so we can fit in the 2 matches (the u14s are playing against Swansea Uplands straight after us).
