Junior Rugby

Last weekend was set aside for training  so let's hope it proved to be of value as this sunday our youngsters take on local rivals Woodrush.  The under7, under 8, under 9 and under 11 teams all play away witth the under 16s playing at home. 

And Finally

She who has finished her interior decorating (a bit of painting) arranged a small gathering of her former work colleagues with their partners to attend (compulsory).  Anyway, I was in conversation with Stuart and Rachel from the depths of Shropshire who told me that their daughter had played rugby for Cleobury Mortimor Ladies and that their coach was a very nice chap by the name of Hilton Smith.  My memory of  Hilton was a smooth talking, highly fashionable bloke who taught us many valuable things whilst in the very trendy Robin Hood.  Hilton, I don't know if they are as smooth as you down in your part of the world but who would ever forget the white shoes, the tight red trousers, white shirt/blouse unbuttoned to the navel and gold ingot.  What style!

For those of you that ever had doubts, Mr Wenger knows best.  Chelsea at the Bridge, no problem.  Just the three goals for RVP. Not bad I would say.
