Not sure about the mercenaries label, as I see it lads want to play in front of a decent crowd playing a half decent level of rugby opposed to 2nd Xv.
I'm also not sure who you suggest was devaluing the competition , as I see it by Saints playing the strongest team possible on the day, they are respecting the competition unlike the teams who failed to field a side !!!

Anselmians Will be at full strength this week and at Home it will be a completely different result. Northwich will come expecting to roll them over. They WILL be in for a shock.

Take the mercenaries tag tongue in cheek as it was intended, it's certainly going to be one of the games to keep an eye on locally.

The following is a paragraph from this week's match preview
"Last Saturday, in the increasingly irrelevant Cheshire Vase competition, Saints had chastening wake-up call. We lost to a well-organised and strong side, 38-12. This, however, is the real thing. Warm-up matches against Mold and last week at Northwich are no realistic preparation for the intensity of League rugby."

If it was irrelevant, why enter. If or one will be looking at the result tomorrow with great interest.

seems a very odd quote given they are playing exactly the same team this week. Even if the players are different I doubt Northwich will be any less or more intense.

Also I believe Anselmians are playing away from their home while the ground is developed so 'home' advantage may be diluted slightly

I do hope they lose today just so next weeks line can be ‘the increasingly irrelevant North One West competition’

they did lose..but a respectable scoreline given Northwich have been bordering on the playoffs for the last few years.

I imagine its going to a tough year for Anselms though unless they can make their Vauxhall ground feel like 'home' games

Video of defeat vs Northwich on Saints website. I'll keep my powder dry of what I thought. One surprise though, having also read the match report, was the constant reference to Anselms shock at the pace of the game at "this level"!!! Surely having brought in so many from leagues above, there should be no surprises whatsoever, in fact those boys should find the opposite.

May be they couldn't believe how slow it was and they got bored ...

After four successive defeats (or should that be five?), are Anselmians in danger of picking up the tag of 'poor losers' (sic)?

Rather than report on yet another loss for their 'ambitious' first team, their website now seems to be carrying headline stories about wins for their 2nd and 3rd teams!!

How different things were not so long ago when the mighty Saints were making their dash for promotion last season, followed by a raft of signings to reflect their 'ambition'.

Surely, clubs should accept defeat with good grace, and not quietly wash over another loss for the main team in the club because it doesn't suit their purposes?

There's a match report on the website? They might of started the season with bullish intentions and had a shock but good luck to them.

Absolutely nothing to say that they won't come good. Still early doors.

DarthVader I suggest you put your lightsaber away and pour yourself a glass of cheer
We have never suggested we would be or do anything great in N1W .
We post a match report for all of our teams win or lose , but as an amateur club we may be guilty of not getting our reports up in a timely enough manner for you , but we do put them up !!
