I understand that Elmbridge failed to show at Beckenham and ditto Esher at Newham. If true then not a great start,

 

Sussex defeated Medway 32-30, or something similar.

 

Sussex also hosted an enjoyable Master festival, which saw South London Storm retake the field!

It would seem as though no D1 games were played yesterday.  To be honest, every team seemed to be low on numbers.

The Chargers have pretty much had to start again for the 4th time in 6 years - until we get some continuity we're never going to be able to develop.

With the second round of the London Cup only ten days away, does anyone know if the draw has been made, or if not, when it will be?  Cheers.

Why don't the Chargers merge with the Hillsborough Hawks, this has to be better than rebuilding every other year?

As far as I can tell, Hawks are not greatly more stable or successful than the Chargers. It's way too far for people to travel to Hillsborough from somewhere like Alfreton, especially for training getting through Sheffield - I know, I tried it. If the Chargers didn't exist the players are more likely to go South to Nottingham or Derby.

 

It's quite disappointing as a long time supporter of RL in Sheffield that after 25 years there is only one amateur club in the city with only 1 Open Age side. I know "football is king" in the city but with that size of population and the community work by the Eagles over the years you'd expect a much more vibrant amateur scene.

Milton Keynes won the East 9s competition last weekend at Bedford. The final against Bedford was pretty close going into extra time where MK won on a golden point try...

 

Decent hit out for Kings Lynn in the tournament reaching the semi finals and beating last year's East Premier Division Champions North Herts in the process. A mixed competition for myself setting up most of team's tries but got carried off in the semi having been severely dazed by an elbow or shoulder to the head... resulted in an A&E visit with headaches and a swollen jaw; thankfully nothing fractured and fit to resume in a couple of weeks!

 

North Herts for Kings Lynn this weekend at their place... tough hit out first game of the season!

GS how does the Eastern Premier compare with say London & SE one. I remember John Evans's South Norfolk side in the early days of the SRLC. Great to see now so many regions have decent 6 team set-ups.

On that note, just checked the East RL website; Bedford Tigers at home for us... nearly beat them in the 9s last week but 13-a-side a different proposition. That said, we turned over St Ives at the same stage last year so should be a good game at North Wootton.

To be honest Audois, not sure as I have never played in the London/SE area. I'd imagine it would be a step down though. There are some good players in the Eastern area but most are RU players playing in the off-season so playing against more experienced league sides would probably get stuffed. It's the hardest thing for us at Kings Lynn trying to re-teach people basics and how to play RL rather than RU... frustrating at times but there are clearly some good lads in the team and this is replicated across the division in my opinion. The key is getting the game played in the local schools but without any outside assistance through development officers and Super League clubs etc, it isn't going to happen.

London premier is stronger but mainly because 3 of the best east amateur sides play out of region in the London premier.

What a load of rubbish!

The only reference can be last years Harry Jepson quarter final between Chargers & Crusaders - which Chargers won at a canter 36 - 12

Rhinos finished 4th in 2013 London Premier & Hemel 'A' 5th

North Herts are a good side but London Premier has more strength in depth. The gap's not what it was though as last time Bedford stepped up they really struggled

Remember London Premier is as much an East league as a London league. It probably has the wrong name but a lot depends on what format the CL South ends up with as it currently doesn't cover the midlands, SW and Wales. Could the London Premier be built up (with the addition of good clubs in east and SE leagues) to sit parallel to the CLS on the pyramid or will the better London Premier clubs eventually join the CLS?

With the addition of the London Div 1 this year (albeit a rocky start) the future must be exactly what you suggest Bowes.

A CL South equivalent that sits over London, East & South East based primarily around London Premier with the addition of 1 or 2 teams each from East & South East.

10 teams - 18 games, probably a good 3+ years away but should be the focus for the future.
