1. These Laws do not define a minimum size for a pitch. However,at the NCA AGM on 5thJune 2016 the Clubs agreed that the following minimum sizes should apply
 - Touch line to touch line – 65metres

The latest World Rugby law #1 now defines minimum sizes. For example width is 68 - 70m so how does this affect the NCA agreed minimum of 65 metres and does the new minimum of 68m apply to all pitches used for RFU competitions?

Cardinals makes more sense given how close you are to Hampton court.
Don't know why I thought they were Cavaliers.
I do not believe the pitch size stopped the Wanderers from running rings round you.

Cardinals is nothing to do with Hampton Court, as far as I am aware. Esher always had as junior teams Cardinals, Abbots,Priors and Friars. Sadly only the first two of those are now running, a long way from the 1960s when with 13 teams on a Saturday we were allegedly the largest Club in England. 

We are always happy to accommodate opposition who run rings around our second team - but only once!
