Oakham Match OFF

Really disappointing, but no match today. Parks called everything off at Underhill.

Don't forget ticket offer for Wales Italy on Saturday 5th September KO 5:00. Really good deal if you let me know ASAP how many tickets you want.

Saturday Oakham Tour Match


We have just about pulled together a 15 for tomorrow's match against the tourists from Oakham. It will be a tough match for the boys who can make it, but a good experience against a different team and the tour matches always have a good atmosphere. Meet at 10:15.

After the match we have pasta back at the clubhouse for our boys and the tourists, from about 12.

Wales Italy

The club is organising discounted tickets for the Wales vs Italy World Cup warm up match on Saturday 5th September. A 5:00 Kick Off at the Millenium Stadium. Tickets are £10 for children and £20 for adults. A lot cheaper than usual 6 Nations prices and a chance for a group from Mumbles RFC to sit together.

If you want tickets can you please reply YES to the teamer (so other players can see who is keen to go) then text Mike with the details of how many adult and child tickets you would like (07846 334 962).

P.S. Don't forget about the SATURDAY match coming up this week. With all the injuries and the football clash we are really struggling for a team. But it does look like Rangers will NOT have a football match, so hopefully we will have some players now available. If you previously answered NO to the teamer, but can now make it can you let Mike know.
It will be the only match this weekend - the Sunday Bryncoch game has been cancelled.

Get well Ows

Good news from Owen at the end of the local derby. He had a nasty knock but was given the all clear by the docs. Will need a couple of weeks off most likely.

News Update

Neil has been with us for 5 years. During this time he has never taken a backward step and developed into a really competitive wing. One of the highlights of this season for me was the tackle he made to set up Josh's try in the really close recent match at Dunvant. Neil and family are now moving on, so this weekend will be Neil's last with the Wildcats. Many thanks from the coaching team go to Neil and Emma for all their efforts and support for the team. We hope that Neil can find a new local team to benefit from his tenacious skills. Maybe bring them on tour to Mumbles some point in the future.

More Injury woe. The pack will have to cope without the considerable presence of Josh for the rest of the season. Wrist in plaster after a school game! Out for 6 weeks. And the organisation in the backs is suffering without Cam. Wrist in plaster as well after a football injury. Waiting to see the extent of that one, but will be a while. We limp on to the last few weeks of the season with a game against South Gower this weekend. Meet 9:30 for an early kick off.

Update.... Arthur, both bones in wrist. Roll on end of season.

Training off Pontardawe Match ON

With the overnight rain on top of yesterday the park is a real mess today and we will not have training (Ben also off on a stag!)

Match on Sunday vs Pontardawe. Meet at the Pontardawe Leisure Centre playing fields (not the clubhouse grounds) at 10:15. When you turn off the A4067 at the roundabout left into Pontardawe (just after the Tescos), the Leisure Centre is signposted on the left. SA8 4EG.

Another Tour Match

Some more good tourists news. I had a call from Wexford in Ireland yesterday, and Gorey RFC u13s will be visiting Mumbles on 10th April. This will be a Friday match (more fun than training). Kick off expected to be about 5:00, but will finalise near the time.

Please can everyone respond to the SATURDAY tour match teamer as well. We need to know we have enough players not involved with football that day.

It has been a difficult season with injuries and we could not believe Lloyd's luck picking up a bad knock to the finger last Sunday. Hopefully this one will heal much quicker than the last. Jacob also was in the wars and could not complete the game. The latest news is Ethan, who has struggled with a knee problem for most of the season. We know Ethan will play through anything, but the sensible decision now is a proper rest and he will take the last couple of months of the season off so he can have a good break before being back in fine health for the start of u14s. Injuries are always frustrating, but the best thing is not to rush it. While on the subject, apologies for lack of action from the coaches in training for the next couple of weeks, as both Ben and Mike are suffering with their shoulders. Ian, as usual, is in perfect health.

Tour Match

We have an extra game booked in on Saturday 28th March. We will be hosting an English touring side and playing at Underhill as a curtain raiser before the firsts play Cwnllynfell with a kick off of 11:00. Unfortunately this is not very flexible and obviously being a Saturday morning there is a football clash, which will put our numbers down, but we should still be close to a full side and it is a good opportunity of some extra rugby for our big squad. Tour matches always fun as well. The teamer is going round now, please everyone respond yes or no so we are sure we can go ahead.
