Easter Plan

Week 1:

Wednesday: slight change of plan. Unfortunately Loughor will not be able to make it for the midweek match, so we will have a training session at the usual place, usual time. Everyone meet at Underhill Park at 5:00.

Saturday: We are hosting a touring side, Sutton and Epsom. The match will take place at Underhill Park with a KO at 11:00. Please meet at Underhill at 10:30. After the match we will feed our visitors, and our boys, at the rugby club.

Sunday: Mini tournament at Gowerton for the whole squad. Meet at Gowerton at 11:00.

Week 2:
Wednesday training, Sunday match at home against Furnace and Sunday tournament at Lucton.

Lucton Tournament 18th April
The busy end of season is rapidly approaching, and we are finalising our plans for the Lucton Tournament. We will send a teamer invite out shortly, but there is a strict limit to the numbers we can take. Please let us know your availability when you get the text. To help you out, this is the plan for the day...

The cost will be roughly £20 per player. This covers most of our costs for travel and registration. Spectators travel "free" but adults have to pay an entrance fee at the ground (I think £4).

Sunday 18th April 07:45 Meet outside Mumbles Rugby Club
08:00 Depart by Coach to Luctonians RFC (near Leominster) (Nice coach with DVD and toilets!) 09:45 Arrive Lucton
11:00 Tournament Starts
16:00 Tournament Finishes
17:30 Depart Lucton
19:30 Approx. Arrive back Mumbles RFC

During the day we will play about 5 matches, against some very strong English teams. You will need to bring plenty to eat, picnic lunch etc. Although the facilities at the Tournament are excellent. There is a play area, a BBQ all day, and a bar. If someone brings a gazebo we can set up camp for the day, hopefully in the sun. Any questions, ask Mike G 07846 334962.

Sunday Plans

Two matches again this weekend. Half the boys will entertain Bonymaen at Bishopston, the rest travel to the mighty Bryncoch. Expect an early-ish start at Bishopston as we might be playing Furnace as well. Team notification will be via teamer txt.

Up and Coming matches...
An early warning for some international fixtures. We will be hosting Sutton and Epsom on 10th April. This is a Saturday, and we'll be planning on a kick off at Underhill of around 11. We will need to plan a warm welcome with food either back at the club, or at the park with a BBQ (depending on the weather). We'll need help with this, so if there are any volunteers please let us know asap. We will repeat the event on Sat 24th when we host London Welsh. (These are under 10s fixtures only).
