  1. Couple of us are off to All Golds for the Skolars fixture.. It will be interesting to see how we react to last Saturday's loss to Doncaster at New River. Skolars to prevail, hopefully.
  2. They played at Enfield whilst the pitch and floodlighting was upgraded.
  3. Hard fought win for the Skolars yesterday at a rather damp Caerphilly. After going over early on it appeared as though it would be a less than difficult encounter. Not a bit of it. Skolars dominated largely in the first half increasing there lead to 16-6 at half time which was a fair reflection. It was a different Scorpions in the second period though with them dominating for long periods, with Skolars forced to defend set after set. A combination of errors but particularly effective defensive play kept the homesters scoreless. I was fearing the worse as we neared the start of the last quarter due to the pressure believing it only to be a matter of time before South Wales scored, and perhaps setting the platform to go on an win. Maybe a few seasons back that would have been the case, but the Skolars are much more resilient these days and saw the match out after a final try in the last few minutes. As a side I am not one for the doubling up system but as we have to have it was pleased to see Broncos Joe Keyes making his Skolars debut yesterday. Whilst not being spectacular he had an ok game and his defence has seemingly improved since I last saw him at Broncos some time back at The Hive..
  4. Agree entirely. I must admit to being taken in at first by Dr K.
  5. Good to see March get his just desserts here.
  6. Agree completely, I bailed out when I got to the Old Trafford seat selection quiz and so you got further than I was prepared to go.
  7. Unable to get out and about currently so missing the Skolars tie. Should be a good contest at the very least. Ideally a home win of course.
  8. Agree totally,absolutely spot on.
  9. It would be nice to think they can kick on from here after there recent performances. Pleased to see Jymel Coleman signed also this week.
  10. .. When it came to Really,so whats changed, you were adamant they should not play at a "union" venue or at least that applied to them playiing at The Stoop.But then again anythng goes when it comes to Dave`s sycophantic following..
  11. To be fair Broncos would not be where they are today without Hughes,
  12. To be fair they don't now Barry64. Mostly it will be Skolars Saturday and Broncos Sunday.
  13. Despite going a converted try down early on it was to be fair a comfortable victory as the scoreline suggests. Hemel lacked any real inventiveness and Skolars largely controlled things. That said it wasnt until the second half that Skolars pulled away. Will certainly return for a game or two more at Hemel,especially when the other option happens to be Broncos.
  14. Thats a pity. Hope you pick up soon G.S.
  15. Looking forward to seeing Skolars at the annual Good Friday fixture at Pennine Way.
