STR held a pre season launch last Thursday were the 30 odd parents and children were kindly joined by Liam Hood and Alan Hunte from Salford RDs. Many thanks for their time, support and insight into professional rugby.
What started two years ago with c10 children is now looking more promising. Although largely dependent on children coming off season from local RU teams we now have a full u14 squad and enough for a development u13s team who aim to play a number of friendies over the season. We've even managed to get two sponsors for polo shirts and training kit.
Last year we started with five defeats - four where we were nilled - to bouncing six wins from the next seven. Whilst we won't win the league we aim to enjoy ourself this season!
Training 7-8pm BTH school Atrincham! Anyone interested very welcome !

I'm finding it difficult to deal with that.
When you think of the skills Burgess has, and the amount of game time and level of intensity he is used to displaying those skills in, it seems a little sad. Good luck to him.
Watching him is so disappointing, such a waste. Bit like buying a Rembrandt and hanging it in the loo
I think the RL, Wigan and St Helen's have all handled this well - in the face of pro RU media desparate for any negative spin. Don't forget he's also lost games with Wales, plus no WCC games and he'll be well down the order after missing 8 games.
Might be a tad inappropriate as the dust has not yet...ahem...hit the floor....however what's the best bit of good old biff you've seen ?
I remember Adam foggerty head butting Neil cowie right in front of me ! Real angel Adam !!
Brian mcdermotts boxing show a few years ago
Des Drummond cracking right hook on Kevin iro in the CC final
Obviously mason v fielden/peacock
Cracking interview with mr wood on bbc this morning. Amazing how we're in the press - even made front page of Sunday times. Low quality game, superb event, exciting and all in all a great night out !
