Training on Wednesday - Indoors

Due to the bad weather we have arranged an indoor training session this week. The best time we could get is this WEDNESDAY at Bishopston Gym for one hour between 6 and 7. Please arrive promptly so we can make the most of the booking. We will meet at the main reception at 5:45, but the training will take place in one of the smaller Gyms.

We hope the weather will improve for Friday at the Park - but we will call it off if it stays like this.

The weekend fixture is Away at Swansea Uplands - whole squad - obviously weather permitting.

Don't forget to access Amazon from this site for all xmas shopping ----------->

Clifton - OFF

Sorry everyone. No chance of a game at Bristol tomorrow, so the trip is off. Big shame after lots of organisation. We will definitely organise another trip there after christmas.

No training or anything at Bishopston tomorrow, so see you Friday at Underhill.

Clifton Final Plans

First up - we are keeping an eye on the weather. Obviously it will be cold, but we are in touch with the Clifton club to ensure matches are playable. So far all the reports from Clifton are that pitches are fine.

Please wrap up the boys warm. Bring the warm up tops - but boys must play the matches in their jerseys - so plenty of T-shirts / skins underneath are ideal.

So far we have confirmed: Rhys, Cam, Keiran, Tom G, Nathan, Tom L, Harry, Aled, Brad, Ryan, Ben, Alex, Sam H, Jack, Zac, Cian.

Any travel difficulties contact Mike asap (07846 334962)

Please ensure you arrive at Clifton RFC by 10:30 at the latest. Directions to the club can be found here. Address: Station Road, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol BS10 7TT

Training Friday Underhill

Training at Underhill Park Swings Friday 5 - 6

Details for Clifton below. Remember it is your own arrangements for travelling. But if anyone is stuck, there are sure to be several spaces on cars going up there, so let us know (Mike G: 07846 334962) and we can try and find a space for you.


On the road next week for a trip to Bristol. We have an invite to play at Clifton RFC. It's a bit of a trek, but a chance to get out of the usual routine for the Crusaders. A mini tour, against English opposition, and with English rules - which means no need to count the players in the rucks and mauls boys!

Clifton RFC is right on Crib's Causeway. It will take about 90 mins to drive to on a Sunday morning. We are not making special travel arrangements because there is obviously the chance of shopping at Cribs's Causeway / Bristol centre / Zoo etc if anyone wants to make a full day of it, so we are leaving it flexible. It would be great if people could arrange lift shares etc amongst themselves. If anyone is stuck for a lift please let us know.

Please aim to arrive at 10:30 at the latest. We will aim to assemble at about 10:30. And to kick off at about 11:30. We'll go back to clubhouse afterwards and be done by about 1:00. We are looking forward to a warm welcome.

Teamer invites will be sent out as soon as we know exact times. Please respond so we can let our hosts know how many are coming.

More details / directions to follow.

The bad news: BOTH MATCHES CANCELLED TOMORROW. For once we are not beaten by the weather. Corus have difficulties raising a team right at the moment, and Penlan have lots of players out of action. So unfortunately no rugby for the Crusaders tomorrow.

The good news: Sunday lie in for a change. Have a rest before the trip to Bristol next week.
