So Waterloo host Racing Club de Burnage this afternoon.
I've always enjoyed my trips over there mainly due to Loo's outstanding hospitality.
However, this is the first game between our Clubs I have missed since we first met in National 3.
Hopefully it’s going to be a good game.
Good Luck to all the lads today and also to everyone else putting on their Club shirt today.

C'mon Mike you're being just a bit too nice today....

I wish Carlisle had been so charitable!

1st half was decent - Burnage played some lovely stuff but a few too many errors cost them. It seemed to me that a few Burnage players were playing at a speed and level above their teammates, and it led to a fair few dropped passes etc.

Loo good value for the win, ultimately. Set pieces were fairly even throughout, Loo backs very dangerous and direct 

2nd half was pretty dour stuff really

Anyone got any feedback on how Broughton Park stuffed Birkenhead Park 52 - 5???

Seems a crazy result

Expertly summarised. Loo too good for the majority, Burnage scored a try from the top drawer & looked dangerous in the centre's. Lavelle has given us wheels @13 & we look a different team. Looking at some of the names in the twos shows we're starting to have depth in the squad, Randa back is a huge plus. Vibe in the clubhouse was brilliant.

By the score line it looked like defences were on top yesterday LF - possibly the lowest scoring game seen in recent years?

Certainly were BM, 3-5 looks like a a dour game, far from it. How it was 0-0 at ht was beyond me as both had good opportunity to score. Loo had the best of possession & territory but port played good counters, yet again the big no8 making the difference...superb performance. Loo had a definite try not given, the unsighted ref making a tmo TV sign before saying it was held up...idiot, it was down all day, not even close. Loo best in the loose but set piece struggled, line out was really poor & scrum was ports domain. Certainly entertaining.

Me...consistency of selection has blighted us more than performance levels bar a couple of games. Sat in 9th place W6 L7 is fact, but doesn't truly reflect where the team/squad is. We've been well beaten in two, beaten in two & lost/thrown away three by bad decisions/management switching off. I think W9 L4 would be a fairer picture of where we are.

Yeah there has been a lot of rotation, whether by choice, unavailability or a bit of both I really don't know. Definitely hasn't helped the lads to form partnerships, perhaps a reason why the lineout in particular hasn't been functioning of late

Scrivens looks like he's starting to really come out of his shell now which is excellent news.

With all due respect LF where you are is the accurate picture - fair doesn't come into it.

Still half a season to go -Wilmslow had a great second half last year but look at them now. IMHO teams have to really want the promotion and be organised enough to adat when it comes.

I do actually say that BM, fact is we are 9th. The three close losses we imo should have won & would give a fairer reflection. We've created so many chances it's untrue, yet failed to cross the line. I fear its second place at best for us IF EVERYTHING falls into place, starting on Saturday at BP...which BTW is one of those games thrown away.
