When September Ends

A quick word on the huge effort put in by the boys for the first 2 games of the season. The defence has been fantastic. It will not get any easier though in the next 2 matches against the powerful Morriston (away this Sunday) and Loughor (home the week after) sides. Rest assured not every game will be like our September start, and it is always an important challenge to test yourself against the best out there. Keep it up boys.

Matrix Redux
Last year we ran the Matrix for match invites, and rotated within each game according to a complicated formula of quarters, which proved difficult to design and implement, especially when players dropped out at last minute with coughs and colds etc. So for this season (at least until we come up with something better) we are taking team selection and all rotations / substitutions on a game by game basis. One of the reasons for this is that there are increasingly specialised positions we need to fill each week, right from the front row to full back, and a huge variation in the strengths of teams we take the field against. We can't promise a perfect system, but luckily we have set up another packed fixture list, and we remain committed to giving all the boys in our large squad lots of time on the pitch over the course of the season.
