Report of the Cam v 7Oaks game. Some very interesting and indeed surprising observations by the scribe. Will have to get a view from 7Oaks when available.

An interesting read. Not sure why the author is complaining about "high tackle"comments from the sideline when he says that in the 2nd half "losing Mac for 10 minutes" but conveniently omits to say that it was for ..........a high tackle. A regular occurrence apparently. Sounds like the sideline were spot on.

Be interesting to read 7Oaks version.

This league just became even tighter !

So Luton ‘ can’t raise a team due to unforeseen circumstances ‘ ( their website refers)
What exactly does that mean? Got to feel for Rocford 100. All 3 home games scrapped yesterday by opposing teams. A total far farce!

🤦🏼‍♂️ I think you missed it.
Be humble! We got smashed in the first half by them last season.
To be fair they played good rugby first half but just couldn’t keep it up.

It's tight at the top and is likely to remain that way until 30th March, when Medway travel to Brighton.  It looks like Sevenoaks' to lose!

Medway - Totts (A), Brighton (A), Camberley (H), Havant (A)

Sevenoaks - Havant (H), Darts (A), Chichester (H), Thurrock (A)

Camberley - Combe (A), Totts (H), Medway (A), Brighton (H)

Brighton - Cornish (H), Medway (H), Chobham (A), Camberley (A)

The only way to prove that you’re a good sport is to lose.

Hope it goes all the way in the South, till the 13 April at16:40ish and then a play off for somebody.
Thought Totts played some good running rugby yesterday at Brighton, hope your 4 is OK.
Still 20 points up for grabs for all teams.
I think Havant may have a big say in how it will all unfold....

On Saturdays showing, Oaks wont find Thurrock a pushover on the final day. Cornish simply didnt turn up with any level of physicality at Ts, even in the first half. We had similar issues in the opening half of the season, but this is the first time in 2019, so we need to see how the lads react to this defeat before reading too much into it. For their part, Ts were exceptionally clinical in that 2nd half, and the difference between the teams was not flattered by the result. Always enjoy my visits to Ts, and hope they elect to remain in the southern division next season, as they really do add something. I should get time to pen a match report tomorrow or Tuesday night.

Tend to agree, Thurrock are a much improved team and will provide a stern test at home. The nature of the league this year has resulted in some good teams being in the mix for the drop, not sure if that augers well for next season as it is likely only to step up again, but it looks likely that availability will again be a key factor in survival. Regretably that seems to have done for Chobham and Tottonians who have some quality players but have been unable to cover absences for key fixtures, yesterdays fixture was a case in point with two key players returning at full back and 8 for Chobham, I would hazard to state had they been available earlier a different situation may have prevailed.
Still looks like the intrigue will continue to till season end providing plenty of fodder for the forum. Looking forwards to a week off to stock up on my blood pressure pills....

Best, Vuarnet

Two years ago we were asked to "consider" switching to the south. We were told effectively say we would move or we would be told to go into the South.
it looks as if Shelford and probably Brentwood and Chingford could all be relegated to the North side.
We can make representations, done it two years etc. but we may not get any say if all three sides drop into the London 1 North.
Will also depend on who goes up.
Rochford, the winners of our league and then the winners of the two second placed teams.
May get an option if, say Colchester go up, two out of the North.
So we won't know for a while and then may just be told!!!

I made the trip down to watch the Camberley / Oaks game on Saturday. I would say that Camberley were certainly up for it and quite probably deserved the win. Oaks were a little flat, perhaps the Medway game had taken it's toll, and struggled to get into the game in large patches. Having said that, Oaks scored a good try with 7 minutes left on the clock, which would have taken them into the lead, which was initially awarded by the referee and then he changed his mind and said it was held up. Very strange as the ball was clearly seen on the ground. I was shown the video yesterday. The Camberley scrum certainly dominated throughout the afternoon, and the referee having decided rightly or wrongly (I think wrongly) to ignore the body angle of the Camberley loose head, had no choice but to award the penalty try. On Saturday's showing, Camberley will certainly test Medway and Brighton. It's all getting very exciting.
 
On a side note: This is a great league with some really excellent competition but it is being spoilt in large patches by poor officiating. I can assure you that the young gent at Camberley, despite what their match report says, was awful. He was so far out of his depth. It's not his fault, the young man is giving up his Saturdays, but is he being given enough support and training to meet the requirements of level 6 rugby? The game at this level is becoming more and more professional (certainly for some clubs!) but the referees are still the same standard they were back 20 years ago. The RFU need to wake up and look after the lower leagues in the same way they support the boys at the top.

Here is the Sevenoaks report:


A good game on Saturday and Camberley deserved the win.  We had our chances, but perhaps were a few percent off in some areas.  Camberley have also improved in the set piece significantly since our last fixture.  In terms of the refereeing, we understand that the man in the middle had been refereeing at Barnes the previous week so certainly had good experience - perhaps it led to an over reliance on tough judges that he didn't have on Saturday which might explain some of the decisions.

A hard run of games for us comes to an end and we are pleased with how it has gone, despite the loss.

As for our upcoming fixtures, we know we will need to be at our best for the remaining fixtures and certainly don't expect anyone to be a 'pushover' as mentioned above.  But it will be interesting to see how Brighton, Camberley and Medway fair in the last two or three games.  I think home advantage is going to be key.  The break now will allow teams to get their players back for the final push.  Its going to go right to the last Saturday so still plenty of twists and turns to go!

It seems the Dartfordians 75-7 demolishing of Hove this weekend has gone unnoticed. OK they are win-less this season and relegated, but in recent weeks they have been getting close to wins against both Havant and Medway.  The lads really upped their game and were clinical and aggressive throughout the 80 mins. 

Although not an unassailable lead over Totts it does give us a bit of breathing room. One more win should make us mathematically safe, as I cant see Totts beating either of Medway or Camberley.  Id expect us to give every team a tough game for the rest of the season and would expect a few more wins, and thus cementing our position in this league.

If you do win all 4, then hats off to you. 

Id be a lot happier if Darts had  50 points, as Totts do have a tendency to pick up bonus points, and I wouldn't want Totts to go into the last game away at Darts with any chance of staying up.
