Its youngest club was up for it so long as everybody else was, Bowes.  And they had furthest to travel.

This may be a silly question so forgive me. Do Swindon train and work as one big squad with the teams changing from week to week or are they pretty settled teams throughout the season?

If you mean Reading they are not due to play them in the league, they could meet in play offs 

It's a two stage league plus playoffs.

Upton 22 v 24 East Hull, scrappy game of contrasting styles - I actually set out to watch Bentley but when I got there the game was off - why was there so many games of today ?

Took in Boothtown Tigers today 36 12 v West Hull A

Both teams has full squads and really enjoyable. Stood on the West Hull side of the pitch for the shade and they certainly thought they did not get the best of the refs decisions

Limited facilities but ground of character>  Standing on one side, you would not realise you were five mins from the town centre. Standing by the dressing rooms the ground is overlooked by 15 storey tower block.

Parking outside requires good handbrake as road is at least 1 in 4 gradient and seems steeper walking up. Maybe 100 in attendance

I wish there was some way to entice more, even on here to these games. As always no admission charge

However had to arrive early as usual difficulties of confirming game on, in case needed to rush elsewhere

Not good news, just heard that the game on Saturday between Milton Keynes Wolves and St Albans Centurions has been called off because Milton Keynes have withdrawn from the East Rugby League.  Don't know any other details.

 

Update - Bit of good news, St Albans are going to play a friendly against Bath on Saturday - at Oxford.  Apparently Cents and Bath have both been let down and have decided to meet half way between the two towns, 60 miles travelling each, where I believe Oxford Cavaliers play.

Pity about MK and Bristol, but good on St Albans and Bath, both teams willing to travel to get a game.

Went to the game at Reading

35 mins it was 24 to 4 to Reading, followed by 36 unanswered points

Now seen every team in East, Midlands, Wales and London. Still need a few home venues however

Nottingham Outlaws ground is presumably a new one to tick off your list! 

Coached Nottingham Outlaws women's team on Saturday against Brixton Bulls. Really fun day, some good tries scored with Outlaws winning 44-12, and the game was played in good spirit. It seemed like everyone enjoyed it which is obviously the most important thing, so I'm pretty pleased!

Bedford have a new ground too, so another for the list.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

St Albans and Bath RL played each other on Saturday at Oxford Cavaliers ground, as both teams had been let down with their league games.  Both teams had to travel 60+ miles to get there ( and an accident and road closure did not help.)  Although the game was a bit one sided (Cents won 60 - 4) it was a great game to watch with both side playing in the true spirit of the game.  Both teams had first timers and players of little experience playing, but the game was enjoyable all the same.  And thanks to Oxford Cavaliers for the use of their facilities.
