Watched saints v park this afternoon at vauxhalls and it's fair to say they got the bigger crowd out the two fixtures played.
Park deserved the win but I've never seen a side fumble so many scoring opportunities in a game.
Certainly not outclassed but unable to finish when it counted.
Sain't seemed to lack on field direction but enjoyed good spells of possession.

A dismal day in Penrith for Racing Club de Burnage.
Outclassed in every phase of the game, apart from the scrum.

Well done to Penrith who deserved the win and thanks to their alikadoos for their outstanding hospitality

Winters Park. It brings back some very happy memories, always a great visit. Funny but it always ended with a very sore head next day. Not sure why😂

All the best

BP has certainly picked up ST - interestingly ( for you maybe?) Broughton Park were only the third rated team from that neck of the woods back in the dark ages behind Broughton and Broughton Rangers. And didn't Manchester play up there in the early days? It must have been a hotbed of rugby.

Interested party because my father came from Salford and lived in Higher Broughton for a spell - he played the round ball game though.

BP looking to escape the drop but in competition with both Manchester and Burnage at the moment.

BM, you are also forgetting Altrincham Kersal who before they moved down sarf (to Alty) were based in Kersal a drop kick away from Lower Broughton.

Spot on PP - of course when those sides were formed in the late 18 early 1900's the major shift involving working men ( and women) participating in sport was focussed on those area with large populations. The "Sarf" Manchester commuter belt of three bedroom semis stretching from Altrincham/Sale through to Stretford was not constructed until the early 30's and later.

For those of an anorak mentality there is probably a story here involving the growth of popular sport and the link to affordable housing for working people?

Phew that's a bit much for a Sunday!

BM/PP

Yes I am very aware of BP/BR/B the holy trinity. That’s a long time ago though. In that square mile or so there were a lot of clubs and Sedge were very much the bottom of the pile. It was always Manchester’s favourite dig when we use play them that they were the only rugby club to actually play in Sedgley Park. Kersal (AK) as it was played in Prestwich and Prestwich played in Middleton.

It’s a funny old game

Good luck to Port and the Bongs

All the best

ST

Is there much available regarding the growth of the game in the early days ST? For example where did they all play and where did players come from?

In Yorkshire the records are pretty good but im not sure about Lancashire.

The history of rugby in North Manchester is very interesting indeed. The Old Manchester Race Course was a good source of playing area for the many many teams. The area also hosted the first competitive team game under floodlights when Broughton Rangers played Swinton attracting a crowd of 20000 for a mid week game. This was before the schism when Swinton were one of the top rugby clubs in the north. If your intrested I have some articles on the growth of the game in the area. Just PM me if your interested.

One last little quirk Salford now RLFC also played in Lower Broughton, but they were not originally from Salford but Manchester 😂

All the best

Birkenhead Park were good for their win on Saturday , unfortunately Saints are struggling to create much against well marshalled defences . With the game in the balance at 15-9 on 55 mins the exchange ref from London gave a penalty try to Park for what he deemed a Farrell type tackle , basically game over !!

I think a good point to take on board is game goes for 80 min and one of the only way s I know to win is to score more points than the opposition ? Anselmians have not scored a try in 240 min of Rugby I think there may be a part of your problem. The Referee has not cost you game your inability to score points tho may have something to do with it ? The next two games are crucial to your season Warrington Away never easy and Burnage at Home !!! Good luck !

Oh no this is going to get shut down now.
It was nice to hear the comments from other clubs and if made to feel welcome I'm sure others would start to chip in.
Were does this ill feeling come from? Maybe that's a separate thread.
