Training 12pm SATURDAY 30th April @ Underhill

There is no game scheduled for this Sunday and no doubt you will all be emotionally drained after watching the Royal Wedding on Friday (especially you Dads), so we will hold training at Underhill this week on SATURDAY 30/04/11 @ 12pm instead.

At 13.00 the Mumbles Youth team, enjoying a fantastic season under coaches Richard Llewellyn, Richie Greenwood and Andy Hughes take on South Gower in a curtain raiser to the first team game. At 14.30 the senior first team then take on Crymych in a top of the table clash. Both teams can still win the league and Mumbles will be looking for a monumental effort to beat Crymych in front of a healthy home crowd. All are welcome to come along to what promises to be a great afternoon and along to the club house later for post match refreshments!

To celebrate Mumbles RFC 1st team final home game of the season a full programme of events has been organised at Underhill. There will be BBQs, Beer Tents and more, - the ideal way to spend your Bank Holiday Saturday in the sun!

Lucton Tour 17th April 2011 - Photos

The boys all played their hearts out at this (very) competative tournament, which was exceptionally well organised by our hosts Luctonians RFC. Our players should all be very proud of their 'never say die' attitude, (even when playing with only 6 players at one point). It was a tough day with some strong teams, and despite being well beaten in the first two games, the team was very unlucky not to win or at least draw our 3rd and 4th games. It took some time to adjust to the English rules (everyone felt for Kieran when he had a penalty against him for falling over - yes it's in the English rules!) but eventually the boys found their groove and played some excellent stuff. For those that stayed on afterwards, they had the satisfaction of playing with our young ref 'Bobby' and drenching him with all our water bottles, proving that rugby can still be the winner on the day!

EASTER HOLS 22/04/11 & 24/04/11


Lucton Tour

Training at the park at 5.30 pm as usual with Lucton 'tour' on Sunday.

We do not have the numbers interested to warrrant booking a Vikings bus, but for those still wanting one we may possibly be able to share one with the U11's depending on available spaces (hopefully more on this towards the end of the week).

Otherwise, if travelling by car please meet there at 10.30am.

I'm sorry to preach to the converted majority, but for those of you yet to get into the habit (you know who you are!), please can you confirm attendance (or otherwise) a.s.a.p in future for tournaments/festivals? There is no pressure to accept, just please let me know either way as soon as you can and in any event within a week of being invited.

If 2 seperate teams can be registered well in advance of a tounament/festival it allows for more productive game time per player, (rather than players turning up 'en-mass' unexpectedly after we have only registered the one team).

Another alternative to ensure productive game time is to restrict playing places on the day only to those who have confirmed their attendance by the required deadline. This is obviously something that we would be reluctantant to have to enforce since it would be unfair on your child to tell them they can't play on the day.

It is however also unfair to your child and the majority of other players who could have all benefited from 2 or even 3 seperate teams being registered in advance had it not been for a lack of Teamer responses.

10/04/11 9am @ Dunvant RFC

We have been told to expect 6 games in total with a finish approx 2.30pm. Please aim to arrive at 9am at the latest @ Dunvant RFC - (1st game K.O. 9.30am).

The dirty dozen !

A great festival of rugby was played against 3 teams from touring team Farnham RFC hosted by South Gower RFC today. Our 'dirty dozen' had plenty of time over 3 games and as many hours to hone their skills with some great weather, fantastic hospitality from S.Gower, and some great skills shown on the pitch. In the words of our own William Wallace".....they can take our tags, but they'll never take our freedom!"

Saturday Apr 9th @ South Gower RFC‏

Please park in Bishopston Primary School car park at 9.30am, Bishopston Road, Bishopston, Swansea, SA3 3EN.

The Farnham coach drivers have been asked to ferry you from the Comprehensive School car park area to the rugby club, so that service is available if you wish to use it. Alternatively the walk to the club is about 3/4 mile from the primary school. If you want to take the coach option, then please could you walk through the school grounds to the comprehensive school car park to get on the coach. If you are unsure of where to go, there will be car park marshalls available to help.

It's your choice to use the school for parking, but there will be a police presence looking to book people on the residential roads after extensive campaigning by locals. You have been warned!

(Please phone/text me to let me know if you are NOT coming on the bus to prevent us waiting around).

Luctonians RFC Tournament

We have been invited to attend a Tournament at Luctonians RFC on Sunday 17th April 2011 - (meet there 10.30am or see below for possible bus option). Can you please indicate your attendance or otherwise using TEAMER a.s.a.p? A failure to use Teamer promptly may prevent formal player registration and resultant 'formal' participation within the tournament (although we will try to give as many players an 'informal' game as we can anyway!). Depending on numbers interested, a bus/coach might be an option for travelling - (meeting @ 07.45am to leave 8am sharp from MRFC). Likely (subsidised) cost will be £10 per bus seat, (which will include return bus travel and player registration fee or spectator entry for 1 accompanying adult). Please reserve any bus spaces required by email to me by 10 April. If travelling by car the fee for entry will be around £5 per head for each player and spectators over 14yrs old. The day will be wrapped up by around 3pm-4pm meaning a return to Mumbles for 6-7pm.

2 for 1 special offer !

This SATURADY 9th April @ 9.30am South Gower RFC then also the day after at 9am on SUNDAY 10th April at Dunvant RFC. (Both clubs will also be hosting a touring team from Farnham who we are also invited to play against). To assist in the pre-organisation of these festivals can you please indicate using TEAMER if you are available for either or both events. Rather than just rely on TEAMER to provide information on time/place, could you please also play your part and either DECLINE or ACCEPT? TEAMER IS FREE ONLINE OR CHARGED AT A STANDARD TEXT MESSAGE RATE USING Y/N TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE ON A MOBILE PHONE. Please don't feel at all pressured to attend either event, but if we know who can / can't attend in advance it would help tremendously. To this end you will have by now received up to 3 TEAMER messages for each of these events (depending if you have responded or not). If you could respond a.s.a.p. then we would be very grateful. Friday training 5.30pm @ Underhill as usual on 8th April this week.
