Loo F - have you ever been to Luctonians? In the middle of nowhere so trying to attract competitive playing talent is one thing but to sell out lunches at every game another - they are doing something very right. Waterloo has the demographics to attract good and competitive playing talent and commercial sponsorship - not to mention to draw on Universities. The "former regime" - unless I am mistaken students generally study for 3 years so I will ask the question of what is being done to tap into this?
I can tell you - absolutely nothing......but maybe its just all about gathering 15 players at Waterloo these days....

Imagine what you could have done on your back pitches,had you not chose short term financial bliss

You could be a self funding and dynamic club

Instead you are in NW1 with any good players jumping ship with your ex coach, a mediocre 2xv and a clubhouse that's on or with Caldy as a dodgy wooden shack - minus the picturesque setting

You should talk more about your successful women's team

Good point Ratboy although the club would not be in existence now had it not sold the back pitch.

The board at the time sold it to line their own pockets and grossly mismanaged the club,thankfully men like dave crank,dave raywood and many more like him have seen us at least stabilise off the pitch,how can you focus on turning performance around when you are cleaning up the mess left by loo of the past era

CM - I think to make such a bold, outrageous and completely false statement shows what limited connection you have with the club - absolute drivel - furthermore a libel case could be made against you. Perhaps you could have the decency to ask them directly yourself? The fact is that the club has gone downhill ever since they took over and yet they are not honest enough to claim accountability.

CM - can you put your statement in writing or are you just going to hide behind such a crass comment which couldn't be more further from the truth?

Constantly s..agging coaches,players,volunteers on the board,colts team is also an interpretation of slander against the waterloo name,the club could definitely be advertised better,but constant comparisons to clubs who only operate a first team,have one or two colts m and j teams and no womens section is laughable,facility wise we are a long way behind your fyldes of the world but, we still exist,is it our 126th season of first team rugby this upcoming season,the first xv may never have been lower but guess what,the club is on the up.perhaps you should renew your membership,get down to blundellsands and see for yourself.
