Aye. Once them puddles on the pitch dry up, the job's a good 'un.

Im not a fan of watching RL from behind a running track, but needs must and all the best to Gloucestershire. They have one of those names that you would have said would NEVER EVER be a RFL club back when I was growing up. Good luck to 'em.

But with a pitch that extends onto the running track!

I'm sure they've been working on the Prince of Wales to tweak it a bit for Championship 1 - I'm sure I was told that they were sticking some terracing at one end. I could be wrong about that, mind.

I went along to watch the trial game they had the other day against Oxford Uni. There were one or two players I'd expect to be in the Championship 1 squad, but mostly players they've been training with over the last few months. I suspect one or two may be added to their squad. It was a scrappy game but a dominant performance - something like 58-0. One of the Sonics lads, who has been training with them, scored a hat-trick. Think there were five or our lads playing for the All Golds. One did his hamstring or knee after about two minutes on the pitch… ouch. There was also another young lad (around 20 years old) from Gloucestershire Warriors. He seems to have the attributes to make it - will be interesting to see if he signs for them.

According to league express this week, they've already got a fixture crisis with NRC and Student Cup games throughout March. Surely that was a problem they should have foreseen before the fixtures came out. This in a season where the C1 clubs start a month later than ever before.

Hopefully there will be some info on tickets etc sometime soon.

However, as a few posters on here seemed to think their business model did not involve paying spectators, maybe not.

Have they pulled out of student comp due to NRC? Doesn't say much about strength of their side!!

Good question. Is he still on Leeds' books? If so, they could farm him out. I guess it might also depend on whether he can get a job etc - think he's a teacher by trade. Would be good to have him back down in this neck of the woods.

Also, with regards to the "student comp", they won the SRL Super Six last week. I was under the impression that their season was complete/they finished it earlier.

They won the student comp. The first team other than Leeds Met to do so since 2006. Thats pretty strong.

It is the cup comp they have pulled out off. Apparently the RFL told them it would be too much to play two games a week through March which is probably correct. How many CC1 would manage that?
