    London in Superleague

    Brentwood play out of multi sports old boys club and have done for a number of seasons. Union has always been a relatively minor part of that club and the school from where it draws its membership even stopped playing union for a few years. When I was involved with the Eels and the Elvers neither were an off shoot of any union club nor have they been since. It is and always has been a completely stand alone club. Eastern Rhinos are also based at a multi sports complex. One of the clubs there is Colchester Union, but there is about as much crossover as with the cricket or archery clubs that also share the facilities. Any players who play union in the off season tend to play at Mersea Island, a completely different club on the other side of the town. I am sure Pete will be pleased to know that his busting a gut for league for over a decade now is just as an extension of union. I hope your other facts and stories are equally as accurate.

    Obituary Thread - 2018

    Much earlier in the year, but was too sad to post was the death in an automobile accident at only 38: Kak Channthy, lead singer of the Cambodian Space Project, a revivalist Khmer Rock group. A documentary was shown about her on BBC4 about 18 months or so ago.

    About a month ago swamp blues musician and writer of "I'm a Lover, not a Fighter", "I Hear You Knockin" and "Sugar Coated Love" Lazy Lester
  4. Fantastic. I am a Skolars season ticket holder and now can't get to the game as I already have an arrangement in the evening. My mate I was going with is in the same position and is saying he may not bother with a season ticket for next year now.

    Great shame. Really enjoyed those books. Think there is one waiting to be published later this year

    30 Mar: Betfred League 1 Match Thread

    Just back from enjoying some pretty biblical conditions at Pennine Way. Game was exactly what one would expect in the circumstances and the weather was a leveller. Skolars had a bit more size and know how to take the victory. As seems to be the trend at the moment a bit of a monumental penalty count.
  7. Well beaten by Thunder today. They look a very attractive side: quick, excellent footwork and good support play. Having seen Skolars belted like that for quite some time at home.

    Another great blues and soul vocalist in Terry Evans has left us. Possibly best known for his collaborations with Ry Cooder.

    Didn't realise at the time but the great soul blues singer Denise Lasalle died a week into the New Year.

    Eddie Hemmings

    Across the board disappointed with the Sky presentation this year. No innovation. No changes. If they are waiting for Eddie to retire at the end of the season, it just means a year of treading water

    Oxford and All Golds to merge?

    Meanwhile here in South Essex quite a lot of press comment and excitement within the town's rugby league club that not one, but two ex-juniors are in World Cup squads and one is making his World Cup debut at the weekend. If only they could realise how they are ruining it all for people north of Sheffield.

    Oxford and All Golds to merge?

    I always wondered why York, York Wasps and York City Knights have so often got into financial difficulties in my 30 years of watching the game. Now I know it was all down to Oxford and Gloucester. I presume it was down to Hemel that they couldn't mange to take 17 players to away games and down to South Wales that they were playing a "stadium" with no seats where you weren't allowed to kick to touch on one side.
  14. Lucy Worsley. Just find her gurning at the camera really irritating

    Oxford and All Golds to merge?

    Just like to echo Progman. Been to watch the Skolars the last four years at Cheltenham and done a number of trips to Oxford as well. Always really enjoyed them and, if it turns out won't be doing them again, it will be a huge disappointment.
