"Rain Rain, Go Away..............!"

Following a common theme this month, I'm sorry to say that the pitches have unfortunately once again been confirmed as waterlogged and unplayable by Bishopston sports centre. Hopefully we will get less rain in December to allow us to play some rugby.

Sunday 15th November

This Sunday we will host Gowerton RFC at Bishopston School 10.30am with hot dogs at Mumbles Cricket Club afterwards at 12pm.


Once again "rugby was the winner", and hopefully everyone enjoyed both the game and their hot dogs at the Rugby Club. Thanks go to a well drilled Uplands team for playing 2 sets of Mumbles Vikings teams captained by Luca and Josh respectively. Uplands showed some good individual skills and supporting of the ball carrier, with both teams' parents providing good natured and positive support . Thanks also go to Paul Cawsey Williams for his assistance, - if anyone else fancies helping out on either the rugby or catering front then please don't be shy - volunteers are always welcome (but apologies if I don't manage to include everyone every week). If you do fancy helping out, then please feel free to contact me on 01792 361870 or 07974747993or gbroad@live.co.uk before the Sunday to confirm your availability, and it will give me a chance to think of some drills and split the squad accordingly.


Aplogies for the VERY late notice this week, but we have been let down by the groundstaff at Underhill who didn't contact the Parks Dep't by 09.30hrs as they are supposed to.

A soccer pitch has been booked at Underhill for a training session starting at 10.30am with a possible game at 11am against Uplands U7's. The 2 rugby pitches are already booked, so weather and Parks Dep't permitting, we will be allocated one of the 5 soccer pitches at Underhill Park, (probably the 'top' soccer pitch but also possibly the pitch over the hedge by the playground).

As stated last week, with heavy rain forecast at present for Friday and Saturday, it will be important to check the blog at 09.30am Sunday before setting off, to see if "Underwater Park" once again lives up to it's now infamous reputation. If all else fails, you can always take some bread down and feed the ducks on the 'pond' (sorry - rugby pitch)!

Sunday, 1 November 2009


Even though the current monsoon conditions are forecast to improve through the day, and it would have been a testing skill session to hold a 'sub aqua rugby session', the pitches themselves have unfortunately been confirmed as waterlogged and unplayable by Bishopston sports centre. You should hopefully have received a 'Teamer' text message informing you of the cancellation, but it is always worthwhile to also check this blog on the morning of every session for any last minute changes as late as 9.30am.) Please also feel free to contact Bishopston on 235040 or Underhill on 205522 or myself on 361870 for any further clarification.
