Tom is an excellent talent and I have watched him for some time during his rugby development at Wigan RUFC a season or so ago before he joined Fylde.

He was mesmerising  last week in Fylde's last minute defeat against Sedge Second XV at the Woodlands, and was by far the stand out performer. I had a good chat with him after the game. He is definitely one that got away. His Dad was no slouch either and great servant to both Orrell and England.

Well done Tom and have a great game against the Blood and Sands tomorrow.

All the best

Personally I hope he has a terrible first game and then finds his feet.

Its his feet you need to worry about, he is very quick footed and very elusive, strong off both hands and feet and as would be expected, has an exceptional rugby brain, sees spaces early and exploits it fully.

This is next step of his development, but he has a good coach in Arnie.

I wonder if he will follow himWinkLOLLOL

I don't know what you mean! I was meaning following his coaching and development mantra.
😂😂😂😂😂 I tend to disagree with you as I don't think Fylde will be relegated this season.

All the best

Played first half Cambridge closed him down very quickly when he had ball in hand . Took a couple of big hits and emerged fine.Fylde also used his Kirkham GS team mates Ben Gregory and George Blackwell in what coach Arnie said was a chance to give youngsters a go before end of season.
Cambridge who made over night stay and trained on local beach were more for it in a bid to secure league status and worked hard in defence and had better ball retention skills at vital times

When will rugby get over this obsession with what school someone went to. It's all so Nigel Starmer-Smith.

well said BRB, an old school tie system that today is ruining junior rugby.

On the players side - Players are over trained, injuries are prelevant amongst private school boys - I know of boys encouraged to do weights and take protein additives as part of maintaining 1st team places. Schools ban players from club rugby still, despite agreeing with the RFU that they would alternate rugby weekends with clubs.

From a referees side - In London schools get society referees for Saturday friendly games at the expense of adult games, as well as being provided refs for mid week games. You are treated as a second class citizen at private schools, it is hard to get to talk to players after the game and typically you are hosted by a master in the masters common room.

At county rep level there is still a lot of what school you went to.

Sadly look at the RFU and its all about the old boys network.
Rucks and mauls may bust my balls, but whips and chains excite me!!
