Pontardawe RFC (Away) 31/10/10

We are away at Pontardawe RFC this Sunday. Ynisderw Road, Pontardawe, Swansea. SA8 4EG. 01792 864811. Meeting time is 10:30.

Directions are a little tricky (players often end up in the nearby Pontardawe Leisure Centre playing fields by accident). Take the A4067 out of Swansea, straight to Pontardawe. On the first roundabout at Ponty, take the second exit (still on A4067) then at the next roundabout (A474) take the exit on the right. This is a straight road, and a dead end, that takes you directly to the playing fields.

Map here, see green arrow for pitches.

Gorseinon Review

Some good skills on display today with good support of the ball carrier and quick passing when tagged. In defence there was also evidence of some determination to spread out and line up 'onside' to face the opposition at the point where each tag was made.

Especially well done to all 10 players who volunteered to play for Gorseinon to make up their numbers from 6 to 7, and to Evan and Jack who both played a man of the match performance for them! Well done to Cameron, Josh and Jack who all marshalled their respective teams very well in their roles as captains today to reinforce the above objectives.

A big thanks to Nigel Truby for assisting with the coaching today of one of our 3 teams from the squad of 21 players that turned out, and to Ginny for carrying on our 'Magic Sponge' and Sara for organising the lottery this week. Thanks to Kevin for volunteering to set up the flags and cones, and if I've forgotten to thank anyone apologies, - I know everyone helps in some way to set up and then pack up.

Our biggest thanks is reserved for Sam Ward-Jones and Rhian Broad who again braved the M.R.F.C kitchen for the second time this season to provide the players with our usual top quality post match sustinence. It's often a thankless task which can be taken for granted, but I've no doubt it's also very much appreciated by all players and parents. If you would like to actively show your appreciation and share the burden, then to contibute to the team's kitchen rota this season, please contact Tracy Price on 406221.

Rain stops play

Despite our best efforts the
rain has managed to put a stop to this week's training
and match. Fingers crossed
for dry weather next week
before I make a call to the Chinese air force.
