Tour Info

Update - please respond to the Lucton teamer invite asap!

[note: kick off for sunday moved back a little, so meeting time is 10:45]

We have the opportunity of a mini tour, to coincide with an invite to Luctonians for a Sunday festival of u13s rugby. The timescale is short though, so we need firm answers to the teamer quite quickly to make sure we have enough numbers.

Here is the proposal:

Saturday 22nd November meet outside Mumbles RFC about 12:00
Coach to Brecon for outdoor Laser Tag
Coach to Hereford for evening meal (something like a Harvester)
Overnight at Hotel in Hereford
Sunday 23rd Nov, coach takes us short distance to Lucs for the rugby
Coach leaves Lucs about 4, return to Mumbles by 7.

Based on the quotes I have so far, and based on 20 players + 20 adults travelling the cost will be about:
£50 adult (travel, hotel, breakfast)
£70 child (travel, hotel, breakfast, laser tag)

The additional costs will be Saturday evening meal and burgers/drinks etc at Lucs on the Sunday.

If this goes ahead, this will be our tour for this season. We all know what a good bonding experience it has been for the boys in the past.

Please respond to the teamer and send any comments to Mike (07846334962) or give them to Ben/Ian on Friday training. We need to book this asap if it is to happen.

Bont at home

We are lucky to be back on the senior pitch again this Sunday, with a match against Pontarddulais. We will be meeting at 9:30 for a 10:15 kick off, so players from both sides can get up to the Liberty easily afterwards for the 1:00 Ospreys KO.

Setting up the pitch
Can all parents and players be aware of the help we need on a Sunday morning setting up the flags (there are 14 to put out on the main pitch) and post protectors. This is especially important after a game when people tend to forget and drift away.

Tour Hosting

Well September was every bit as tough as expected, and this reflects how physical the game gets in the teenage years. But for the moment we can put local rivalries aside and look forward to hosting a touring side from Bromsgrove School. As we had a fixture with Dunvant planned and with Bromsgrove bringing 2 sides we have rearranged for the following at Underhill Park, on the senior pitch.

10:30 KO Dunvant vs Bromsgrove 1
11:30 KO Mumbles vs Bromsgrove 2

It is something different for the boys to really look forward to, and we hope as many as possible can join us back in the clubhouse for food afterwards. The Bromsgrove group will be coming back for a couple of hours before they go to the Liberty Stadium to watch Ospreys v Cardiff. We all know the big game will be Wales v England in the morning at the park though.
