I may be there. It makes the thing a roughly 260 mile round trip, but on the other hand, I've got nowt else to do on Saturday!


Well, if you do turn up do come and say hello - I'll be the rotund, beardy one wielding a clipboard.

Eccles only played 7 first team regulars against Dudley Hill last week, but we will be competitive. Hopefully we should have some players back this week, but we have 7 in Australia. I will be there, and I will also be the one with the clip board but no beard! Not bothering going to bed after working the Friday night shift.

I'd forgotten about that. It might have been the on eYork 9s trip I missed.

We have one former Eccles player involved with the club, Stafford Lloyd, though he's done his knee badly so won't be playing at the weekend. He's very disappointed about this, as you can imagine.

Looking forward to making everyone from Eccles welcome. We're generally a friendly bunch.

So, we've got beard with clipboard, beard with hat, no beard with clipboard. We just need no beard with hat and we've got the set!

I could also wear a hat if that's easier? I have very little hair these days (apart from on my face, obviously) so a hat is a distinct possibility of it's a bit chilly!

The clipboard is essential, mind, as I have to make notes for the match report!

Which pitch are you on? The one with the stand or the one miles from the bar ?

We had the option and went for the shelf instead of the main pitch as it holds up better in the wet.

Beard with hat will no longer be there. My Swindon plans have just fallen through and I can't justify the expense of driving all the way to Bristol for just one match.

I'm sure I'll see you guys again next season though. Best of luck today!

Plus, our record up there is quite good - we beat Hemel on the "shelf" after all.

Bristol played very well and were possibly better with ball in hand than Eccles but Eccles ran better lines. Certainly Bristol like to keep the ball alive and back each other up very well. Bristol shocked Eccles by taking a 12-4 lead but then Eccles scored 3 converted tries in 6 minutes from the 20th minute which, in the end, proved to be the difference. If Bristol had more possession in the first half I am sure the score would have been closer but an 2-8 penalty count against them in the first half stopped them having that possession. Nothing dirty in the game, just inexperience leading to the penalties. Eccles were much stronger in the forwards.
