To BackRowForward, yes it is ridiculous that there are no Scottish teams

To DaveH, yes Aberdeen are disappointed but not surprised, however still proud to have reached the level of Scottish champions in just 3 years since we started and have been in finals every year

 

What Aberdeen has done in 3 seasons is amazing. We are the largest club in Scotland. We are the Scottish Champions. We have players in every Scotland squad possible. We support development of the game locally through schools links and have worked with local schools to help with their Saltire Schools Cup campaigns (details below)

Aberdeen Grammar School: (U15 and U17 2011 Champions)
Westhill Academy  (U15 2011 Runners-up, U17 2012 and 2013 Champions, U13 2013 Champions in first year the competition was run at this age group)
Since Aberdeen Rugby League Club started the Saltire Schools U17 Cup has never left the North of Scotland

 

Sad that we are not in the Harry Jepson Trophy having earned our place as Scottish Champions but we'll get over it and we'll be even stronger next season

That is sad too and not good for UK development of the game... unless Welsh teams are happy not to be included in the draw. Certainly Aberdeen assumed that they would be in the draw and hence the disappontment.

Glos Warriors confirmed as our entrant.

 

I thought that's what would happen.  Lets just hope Glos have gotten over their in-fighting from earlier this year and it doesn't end up with them travelling with Kirk Lewis, Ash Lewis and all of Kirk's sons, daughters & concubines to make up Glos's squad.

I suppose the only alternative at the moment is to enter the National Cup. That might give it a bit of a boost.

So the final is South West London Chargers v Gateshead Storm - any predictions?

 

Is it possible to take anything from the relative semi final scores? How good are Telford and Devon?

Anyone going down to watch?

Both clubs won their league & their cup ... Gateshead have gone through the season undefeated.

Not sure how the two league compare - but the London one is strong!

Should be a great game!!

I can comment on Sharks because they are one of our rivals (I play for Exeter Centurions)..... oh, and I helped found them (Sharks)!!! A full strength Sharks would compete with anybody but they were seven players short in the semi final due to injury picked up in the opening two weeks of the union season. 

 

They didn't use this as an excuse, it was just one of them things, but the SW League is reasonably strong with Sharks and Cornish Rebels being the stand out teams. Either of which could win the Harry Jepson.


Imagine if in 1895 they had internet forums.............rugby league would not exist!
