Sunday 25th October

The arrangements are to meet at 10.30 am at Bishopston once again, but this time for a training session rather than a match. Lee Thomas has very kindly offered to hold the training session this week to allow me a half term weekend break, and he can be contacted on 07702887129 if you have any further queries or if you would like to offer him any assistance.

South Gower Match Report

Some great rugby was enjoyed by both teams on Sunday with some excellent skills on show. The South Gower Seahorses were evidently a well drilled team with some talented individual players, matched by a no less talented and enthusiastic large group of Vikings. Well done to all, including once again two very good natured sets of supporters who needed to give the sometimes dubious refereeing plenty of leeway.

If there are any willing volunteers out there who want to contribute to the post match experience, then Claire Rees has kindly offered to co-ordinate a combined U7’s & U8’s hot dog ‘rota’ of sturdy souls to organise the purchasing, cooking and distributing of the food. Purchases will be refunded on presentation of a receipt from Club funds. Claire can be contacted on 01792 419190 or 07920250314 or claire.rees@astrazeneca.com

Firstly our sincere thanks go to Dunvant R.F.C. U7’s players who, in miserable conditions provided a full U7’s Tag team for 3 continuous thirds of a game in the drizzle to enable all our 18 players a share of some match time each. Once again ‘Rugby was the winner’ on the day and I thought all players from both teams did especially well given the weather, with all parents from both teams deserving a big pat on the back too for their very good natured support. Long may it continue!

I hope those of you who came back for the post match experience enjoyed it, and that you didn’t suffer from ‘cabin fever’ given the rain forcing all teams inside. We will be at Bishopston again this Sunday 18th October at 10.30am, and aim to play South Gower RFC – a.k.a. the mighty ‘Seahorses’. Given that we have a nice long range weather forecast for the week, and the Rugby Club is likely to be busy with European Cup action, I have accepted another kind invite from the Cricket Club to use their facilities after our game and hope that we can enjoy hosting South Gower while watching the Ospreys in action (K.O. 12.45pm).

Dunvant this Sunday

We have a game against dunvant this Sunday. They have assured us they have enough players for a full U7s game so we will play against boys and girls of our age group.

We will meet at Bishopston at 10.30.

After the match everyone is invited to the Mumbles Cricket Club where all players will be able to have a hotdog! The club is situated on Plunch Lane in Limeslade.

Gowerton Match Report

A really warm and friendly welcome greeted us at Gowerton, who were playing their first competitive match.

Well done the Vikings!

Watching from the sidelines today, it was obvious to me and the other Mums and Dads cheering on the team, how much progress the team has made in the short space of time we have been together!

There were some really fantastic tagging, running, passing and of course try scoring! Three thirds were played to make sure everyone had a fair share on the pitch, and I am fairly certain all that were on the pitch contributed in one way or another.

Keep up the enthusiasm everyone!

Details for next weeks arrangements to be posted later in the week.
