According to their press release entry is free for the Plymouth Albion friendly.

The facilities are probably the best in the league, good pitch in good weather, but this week not so sure?

Dings have replicated Taunton apart from the pitch, 3G where the jury is still out apparently but I never heard of any complaints in their first season

Yes I agree that Taunton have a great facilities, the pitch should be in good nick, but with this downpour and the recent ones it will make it a soft, it is prone over the years to hold the water.

As for Dings replicating Taunton, I would say that is totally unfair, the club house layout along with the gym and sports hall and decent sized changing rooms make this a far better venue for a player and supporter, and the 3G I have been told is great, so I do wonder why the jury would be out ?

Regarding access to Taunton's ground:

There are road works around Junction 25 on the M5 including contra-flows and lane closures so delays can be expected. These works are expected to take a further 2 years!
Unfortunately there are no obvious alternate routes. Coming up from Plymouth it might be worth using Junction 26, though this would involve driving through the town on the A38.

while we are talking about directions - someone at Worthing ought to contact Google - it is now adamant that the way to your clubhouse is to drive into the new estate where the wholesale part of the nursery was and cut through a solid fence to the south end of the clubhouse - with the new season you may get a lot of humphing from the residents of Thyme Place - it also suggests that as the walking route from the station

We only have inside bars, all under the Dome. 

Food is generally steak pie, with a pea jus or pork scratching's, again under the Dome served in the presidents suit (Which doubles up as the bar, chairman's suit, changing rooms, showers and kit shop )

TDTwo,

My last visit to Dore Moor was exceptional fun with great hospitality, a brilliant lunch, a very competitive game and very good company. I am very much looking forward to coming back this year. I don't think the Caldy coach left until about 7 p.m. which gave plenty of drinking time as it was a mid winter fixture with a 2 o'clock kick off.

Some of the Caldy supporters arrived as if dressed for an autumn stroll around the Cote D' Azur...........they soon discovered during winter there can sometimes be a bit of a nip in the air in the environs of Dore Moor which can be quite noticeable if there is a breeze blowing. I think one Caldy supporter somewhat regretted not bringing a pullover or a long sleeved cardigan to ward off the chill. 

This year I must remind him to think on and also bring an anorak or a cagoule to avoid getting damp from Dore Moor's  fine mist which can be persistent.

Caldy have their second 1st xv warm up fixture tonight against Welsh Premiership Side RGC 1404. The match is being played at Ruthin rugby club.

Yesterday a Caldy A side which was Caldy's 2nd xv squad took on Birkenhead Park under lights at Upper Park. Park just edged very competitive game 28-24. The match was refereed by Premiership referee Ian Tempest.

Caldy's young squad of 25 players played with intensity and pace throughout against a much more experienced and physically bigger Birkenhead Park squad. After 10 minutes I thought Caldy's faster game was going to see the Park side struggle but they lasted the match admirably scoring through driving mauls and robust direct play.

Caldy's game plan was surely to go wide and let their pace rack up the scores but the young squad were happy to mix it up front as well which was encouraging but slightly foolhardy against such an experienced forward orientated team.

It was pleasing to see the Caldy scrum hold up well against Park and the young squad showed that they are more than capable of holding their own at that level.

Thanks for the tips re Taunton everyone. No harm in a bit of give in the match for this kind of fixture. Forecast is for decent weather.

Expect 2 coaches of oggy munchers tomorrow plus some independents as well. 

Hope your team is as good as your facilities - we need you guys to get promoted and give us a derby within 100 miles/easy driving time. Halliford can tell you that at one stage, they were our "local" rivals in Nat 1 before Cinderford took over...

These moans have been going on for years, think about when the grass pitches are rock hard in September or from being frozen, nobody complains then !

I think the 3G/4G debate will carry on, I think knowing the surface I played on was the same pretty much week in week out would be a relief, I have seen some terrible pitches over the years at this level and above, lumpy bumpy, coloured mud, boggy areas the list goes on. 

A few little marks can happen for the removal of sub standard pitches !

Good performance by Caldy away at RGC eventually lost 29-26 with RGC scoring in the last 10 minutes after Caldy were leading 26-17 midway into the second half they put on all their subs and the youngsters  took on the RGC pack . After going behind they pressured the RGC line for the last 5 minutes and were unlucky not to score. It was a good result against a team which is one of the top premier clubs in Wales.

Good result for Hinckley too. Building quite nicely.
I'm quite impressed with their increased presence around the town lately too (although I hope they're not going to all be piling into the new main shirt sponsors, the tiny Elbow Room pub, as there won't be enough room for me and the mutt!
Good club, and getting better.

Well as I saw it, the final team playing a team that had played most of the game against a side that haven't isn't really exciting unless you mean scoring towards the end was a highlight LOL

Two mixed teams from tigers on Saturday, very pleasing to see the strength in depth and great first hit out. 

Shows the hard work in building the second team that won the premier league is paying off. 

Played two regional 3 teams with a squad of 40.

1PM ko - Tigers 21 - Donny Phoenix 19

3PM ko - Tigers 43 - Sandal 24

Two good games of rugby to blow off the cobwebs, and makes selection very very interesting for this week coming !!

Hi Tulip how has the summer been ? top Shocked LOL

Speaking to your players (one who I know well) it was pretty much a full squad out for you guys.

Broadstreet have changed the format and are just bringing one squad now, with a 2pm KO. The subs will be rolling on and off and teams of around 30 ish, so not sure how much we will learn. 

2 very good competitive games at Dore Moor last Saturday, it was a great indication of where are squad is at.

From what I hear the lads are really up for it this season. Lost Dave Martin England Deaf International to Huddersfield and possibly another good centre to watching World Cup in Japan. but I think we will give most sides a run for their money. Hopefully I will get back to my old stomping ground Dore Moor soon and wil give you a bell. All the best for this season

Leicester Lions sparkle against Nuneaton in pre-season game on the evening of Tuesday 13th August 2019


Leicester Lions played a pre-season squad game against Nuneaton on the evening of Tuesday 13th August 2019. Head coach, Gareth Collins, gives his feedback from the game below.

Report:

Leicester Lions played their first warm up match of the season against Midlands Premier side Nuneaton on Tuesday 13th August 2019, evening.

The game consisted of four quarters and both sides fielded about 30 players.

Lions won the game 61-0.

Tries: Constant, Sumpter (2), Neale (2), Murdoch, Godefroy, Young, penalty try.
Conversions: Young (7)

Comments:

I am very happy to get the first game, and win, under the belt following my return to Leicester Lions as head coach.

Nuneaton, complete with a number of former National league players, were always going to give us a good test so we were delighted with our performance. There is much still to work on before our first league game but as a first hit out we couldn’t have asked for much more from the boys.

We made a lot of new signings over the summer, most of which were in action on Tuesday night, and it was really pleasing to see them all settle in so well.

I was also very pleased with the tempo we were able to play at throughout the game. We’ve been working hard on fitness levels over pre-season in order to play a certain style of rugby, so it was very pleasing to see the boys achieve that in the first game.

We will also be running a development team this season and a number of players got their first run out for the club in this game. It was very encouraging to see levels of accuracy and energy maintained when a number of these young guys were out there.

We’re now looking forward to another tough test In our next and final warm up match away to Loughborough Students on 31st August.

Gareth Collins (head coach Leicester Lions).

New coaching staff also includes: assistant coaches Jason Button, Seko Sio and Jason Aldwinckle.

Interesting result, albeit a pre-season game, bearing in mind the 2 sides have effectively changed places.

This possibly confirmed my previous suspicions that Esher will be near the top of N2S while Canterbury will struggle in N1?

I watched this game. Esher were good with ball in hand. Canterbury won the battle upfront. Canterbury were well short of there normal backline and their numbers were low. Entertaining game in very hot conditions. Pretty close until a Huckleberryup off the kickoff that allowed Esher to score the softest of tries.

A pulsating game at the Avenue where Wharfedale just edged out Rotherham.
Titans will be a big force in Nat 1 this season but it may take a couple of months to get going.
Dale blooded a number of excellent young players from last seasons National Colts Cup winnimg side.
22 - 19

Macclesfield 18 Chester 22 in the Cheshire Cup semi final.

Chester led for a good portion of the game until Macc took the lead with six or seven minutes to go. A soft mistake by one of the Macc replacements gave away a penalty on their 10m line, Chester kicked for the corner, won the subsequent line-out and went over the line to win the game with an unconverted try.

Good defense by both sides. Macc should be hard to beat in the northern premiership this season; Chester should be good for another top five finish.
