So I won't be watching Custodians because they're hosting their first game on Easter Sunday, 20 kilometers outside the city.

Sadly missing Custodians vs. Griffons today because this time they're in Getafe and not even the centre of Getafe.  I have to work tomorrow, I have to do preparation this evening, I'm really not up for a near-four hour roundtrip.  The one game which was in a decent spot (Hortaleza), I missed because of family commitments.

Massive win for the Griffons in Getafe.

I managed to get to the game in Perales del Rio which, as you said, is not even in the centre of Getafe.

 

Griffons managed to really pick up in the second half after looking shaky at first. The scored a nice try after a really powerful guy, Thierry, ran about 70 metres from kick off.

 

Plenty of mistakes but looked like a team in the second half.

 

Not a bad game and also good to see a side now in Mérida

Good to make your acquaintance, Usera. I don't have transport here, just a B1 abono so I can get from Plaza Castilla (I live near Ventilla and Valdeacederas metro stations) to my job in Alcobendas. So going to Penales del Rio means going through the city to Vilaverde Bajo and getting a bus. Adding up the time on transport and the potential waiting times, it could be 1 hour 15 to 2 hours, maybe even more. If I'd had a car, I would have gone.

Did Griffons have a bigger squad this time? Last time they had just 13. There needs to be more teams in Madrid and it there's interest, I'll help out however I can.

Hi,

 

If they play in Perales again, and I can go, I can give you a lift from Legazpi. I will have to watch out for the fixtures as I almost missed this one.  The game was orginally meant to be at the Juan de la Cierva Sports centre, which is close to Getafe centre and has metro and train stations nearby. It has a decent grandstand as  well, although the pitch was in very poor condition last time I saw it.

 

I had to go off straight after the game so had little time to talk, but they appeared to have at least of couple of subs.  I was told that the stand-off was French and had played before, and he seemed to organise things better. The scrum half was okay as well. They were poor in the first half but managed to play a lot better in the second half when they controlled the ball a lot more and finished as a worthy winner.

 

Maybe they can play at Hortaleza next time, as it is a lot easier to get to.

Awesome, that would be amazing! I almost missed this one too, I saw it by chance on the Madrid RL page rather than on the individual team pages. I wanted to offer help with graphic design too because I designed (and still design) posters for my old team.

There's no critical mass behind RL so of course venues won't be ideal. I'm not moaning, just frustrated by my inability to get out there. Looking at the union game - both club and university - there seems to be a lot of pitch sharing, unless you go outside the city where some teams have their own pitch, like Tres Cantos. I was told that Getafe is a Custodians venue rather than a Griffons one.

 

For me, Getafe and that area should be kept seperate from Madrid.  You would think a "Metrosur" team could work in its own right. Between Alcorcón, Leganés, Getafe, Fuenlabrada and Móstoles, there's probably over 900,000 people down there.  In fact, if the Area Metropolitana and the Henares Corridor could divided up, there's probably potential for four teams plus Custodians as a police team.  That would be a great basis for a league in central Spain, though this is spitballing and a long-way off.

 

The last game was a draw and Griffons had just 13, which we all know is going to hurt you if the opposition have a full bench.  I actually told the Griffons' chairman that if they had more than 13 this time, they'd probably beat Custodians and so they did.  Good to hear about the game but how did Custodians do?  Were they just not at it?

 

The best venue of all for position is probably Cantarranas and the best quality pitch is Puerta de Hierro, out by the M-30/A-6 junction.  Tres Cantos is a great setup, though it has a running track and is in Zone B2.
