Why lose a match with imports when you can lose with players you have developed except your own players will still be around in 10 years?.
The result is the same.
Not odd at all.

I see Rochford Hundred keeping up to their name again at the weekend, though they have slipped a bit since they beat Ruislip by 127-0. Only a mere 101-5 v Luton at the weekend. Thank goodness they are in the North Section (for this year anyway.) Surely only the rugby equivalent of Foinavon can spoil their party?

I reckon some of the games would be pretty tight if they were in LS1.

We (Old Priorians) are yet to play Rochford , but have been informed by a lot of other sides about the alleged scandal that's accompanied the cheque book moving over. 

By all accounts a very very good side , I know nothing about them really or their players so can't confirm if home grown or shipped in. 

Colchester put up a strong performance against them it seems. If anyone has any legitimate info i'd be keen to hear it.

Fair comment Truwblue! Our regular photographer was away so our snaps on the day were taken by one of our VPs with his phone. There was a decent crowd but it was very cold with a biting wind, so they were gathered in the more sheltered area further up the pitch!

Of course it is odd.  Why does the provenance of the players matter at all?  It doesn't make the Result better or worse.

So locally based players who haven't come up through the ranks of the minis and juniors should not be playing?

My own club (which is a long way from Camberley by the way) has a proud tradition of bringing players up through the junior teams to play first team, and there is absolutely no guarantee that they stay at the club, as if they are good enough, and a club playing at a higher standard offer them better rugby, and decent pocket money, they will grab that opportunity.  With our best wishes.

To my mind, rugby clubs should welcome anyone through their doors, should they want to be playing the game, irrespective of where they come from.  If they can earn a bit extra, good for them.  If they lose some games, well that's how the game works isn't it?
