Wanted to see if anyone has any news relating to Loo. A new topic means we don't hog the other ones (which I know people love!)

Any team news for this weekend?

Congratulations to Newport on their victory today..albeit against a near 2nd/colts XI. Well deserved all the same & good luck for the rest of the season.

Haha....yeah, still in cricket mode, although it did look like at times, but as many as 10 firsts missing yesterday.

Sten, News at Loo, Dan King posted on Linked in advertising for Front Row and 2nd Row players offering accommodation, help finding a job and match fees.

I think the need was obvious at last Saturdays pre season game inspite protestations form DoR on Facebook saying that there were 9 First Teamers out.  I think the question is will they be back?

They did indeed get mullered, in the scrum especially. I was told 10 players missing but most were backs so the need up front was obvious.
On the bright side some good young talent on show, Radcliffe at 13 was the standout along with the boy at 9 & blonde chap playing 7. Best summer signing Mr Reeve was back pulling the strings & Jack Weare was Mr reliable even at 4 but was missed in the back row where I thought the new lad @ 8 was more than steady. As I've said before, the sun hasn't fallen out of the sky at Loo, but maybe the clouds have dimmed it's brightness...for now anyway. COYGB.

Mustn't have played, front row got creamed for most of the game. Gairns played majority of the game.. A number of colts & 2's/3rds so result was understandable but certainly not the end if the world.

New coach he likely has his own way of doing things such as scrummaging being an ex international tighthead.i wouldn't go writing every player off just yet,i doubt it was just the front row getting dicked if indeed it was a young pack 2-3 xv i imagine the opposition had a significant weight advantage across the whole pack.roll on when universities come back

It would appear that players at Nat 3 level now expect to be recompensed in some way - and many of the clubs are willing to risk financial meltdown in order to survive at that level. I am aware that at least one club has now resisted this trend but only time will tell whether or not it will survive.

Having just see his mugshot, I believe he was playing. Could be wrong but didn't he come off injured?

Bigmal... Lymm have never, and I hope and pray will never provide recompense to players, apart from covering the odd train journey for students but I believe our coach usually dips into his own pocket for this. We simply wouldn't be able to sustain it, we're a tiny village with very little by the way of major sponsorship and no sugar daddy to note. The money that is sometimes very generously donated to the club is almost always invested straight back into maintaining our facilities.

I'm led to believe Wirral are a similar set up. I think both Lymm and Wirral benefit from strong links with their respective local schools and rely heavily on a lot of home grown players.
