It should, I'm obviously anticipating the beginning of the new season a bit too much...

Ampthill's home fixture with Ebbw Vale on August 18 has been moved to Goldington Road where it will follow the completion of Blues v Saracens due to the bone hard ground at Dillingham Park.

In addition Blues will face Amps in a Boxing Day 'friendly' at Goldington Road, kick off at 15:00

Clever way to keep match fit and also still get a huge gate that Blues often have over the festive period, which I am sure both clubs will enjoy the addtional income.
 
Does make a mockery of the "mid-season break" though!  I wonder how many others will follow suit.

Result today: Jersey Reds 27- R.C Vannes 17.
Only the first of three Pre Season games but so much promise in the Reds squad to enjoy.  Good pack, solid defence which was well tested especially second half and some pacey backs who looked as if they really mean business.  Thought the Reds new right wing looked a very good new asset.
Early days yet of course, and a much tougher game against Harlequins in 2 weeks time, but today was really encouraging against level 2 fully professional French opponents. Jersey looked like a team who know each other well and are ahead of schedule as the season approaches.  Will be some tough selection decisions once the League starts; bring it on
Come on Jersey........

< ="text/" ="" ="/B1D671CF-E532-4481-99AA-19F420D90332etdefender/huidhui.js?0=0&0=0&0=0">Excellent result for Jersey. I noticed Carwyn Jones the ex Ealing Trailfinders player in the Vannes team. His brother left Ealing Trailfinders to join Nottingham for this season. Both are superb rugby players. I also noticed  the Vannes player Faraj Fartass who runs like the wind and is a strong campaigner for Brexit.

It does seem that Jersey are ahead of the game in preparation for the forthcoming season.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

That's a good result for Jersey. Vannes are a good team, I saw a lot of them on Eurosport last season.

Early days in the campaign but I was very impressed by both teams at St Peter yesterday. The huge turnover of replacements probably meant that neither side ever had their best 15 on the pitch at the same time but the effort and pace of the match was relentless. Both defences were exceptional and the two packs of forwards Jersey played in separate halves were very well drilled. the second half pack looked incredible but the slope makes an enormous difference and I suspect the second half Vannes pack were mainly "probables" rather than first choice. Jersey's maul and scrum down hill in the second half looked unstoppable and the huge newbie loose head and back rower with the white scrum cap and huge band aid both caught the eye. The lineout looked solid throughout and Rory Bartle had a fantastic second half but surely he needs to play at 6 rather than lock. All of the half backs on show looked the part and hats off to the little scrum half Mudariki who absolutely flattened a huge Vannes forward with a cover tackle. Lots of obvious players with great claims to a starting shirt like Joyce (my player of the season last year), Sexton, Pembo & Ma'afu not on show yet so more to come I hope. Great to see live rugby again at St Peter on a gorgeous sunny day with the pitch looking brilliant.  Great control by the match officials - a penalty try properly awarded imo against each side for collapsing a maul -  consistent and firm throughout I hope we get those lads regularly next season.

Generally agree with those sentiments CC, a good start, but still a way to go. I think that the starting Vannes XV was the stronger set of players and that the Jersey 9 had a cracking 1st 40. The ball was a little slower in the 2nd 40 IMHO.
Not so sure that the experiment of Best playing at 10 worked, unless used for defensive reasons.
The starting Vannes 14 & 15 looked like a really dangerous pairing and they will cause problems in France this coming season.

Bring on the Quinn’s!!
