DaveH, the crowd at Cinderford were downright rude.  It was far and away my least favourite away trip, not just this season but of any season!  The result didn't help of course, but they weren't even gracious in victory. 
I travelled to Barking to watch a rather disjointed Bay side get well beaten.  That was far less painful to bear even though we lost to a team we should be capable of beating (63-10 at the Mennaye, for example).   Still, revenge was achieved against Cinderford at the Mennaye; amazingly with no fisticuffs which I suppose is a good thing.  I'm pretty sure Mounts Bay will be visiting the Forest Of Dean next season.  It'd be great to beat them on their own turf.  That'd shut them up.

Maybe Cinderford will beat DMP and you'll have the joy of a trip to the FoD next season. But don't write Mowden off. If they've got their Falcons players in tow then they'll give the home side a game. Especially as Cinderford are missing their very influential England Counties player, fly-half Tristan Roberts.
 
Mind you, it'll be extremely tough playing in such a hostile environment & against a big pack. The smart money has to be on yet another home play-off win. So it's more than likely that you'll get your chance to stuff 'em next season.

Some interesting stats from the RFU match preview:
 
  • There is not a lot to choose between Cinderford and Darlington Mowden Park in the attacking stats with the big difference between the two in defence  
  • Attacking wise both sides finished just short of 100 tries for the season with DMP just edging in 97 to 95
  • Although scoring a couple of tries fewer Cinderford scored more tries in the last 10 minutes of matches than the North East side
  • Cinderford were the only side in the division to have their forwards out score their back with 49 tries to 41 whilst DMP were the other way with 59 of their tries coming from their backs and 37 from the forwards
  • Discipline could prove vital in this match and Cinderford had just seven sin binnings this season whilst Darlington Mowden Park had 18
  • In defence Cinderford stand out with just 39 tries conceded all season whilst DMP have had  61 scored against them
  • At home Cinderford have had just 15 at home all season against them (6 of them by Bridgwater LOL)
  • Of the 39 tries they have conceded this season only seven have come from the opposition forwards and they have conceded more in the first half then the second which is against the average 

Full preview is here

Cinderford are aiming to get a large crowd down( heard reports of 2,000!) this combined with most of our fans going by cars due to the price of organising buses last minute leaves me thinking we might be out-supported!LOL!!! any guys who may turn up not cinderford fans hopefully will be supporting the underdogs! Any Lydney supporters out there who go will hopefully get behind the 'Park.!!

MB, there are different ways of reacting to losing the play off. New Brighton reacted the wrong way and are now in freefall, whereas Tynedale went back and did it again. To be brutally honest, Tyne were better than Blaydon in 2006/7, with promotion probably being lost either by a bizarre refusal to kick a winning penalty against Fylde (game drawn) or losing away to DMP with half the Tyne team away in Dubai playing sevens. Anyway, it's history and the second game of next season is a chance to settle top dog status in the North East for a while.

Tyne were certainly a better team in 2007/8 than Blaydon were in 2006/7.
 
I remember the moment in September 2006 which probably decided the championship when Tyne travelled to play Fylde at the Woodlands. With the scores at 14-all Tyne were awarded a straightforward penalty in the last minute of injury time. Goalkicker Will Massey proceded to set up the kick and then boot it into touch, to the amazement of all the players and spectators.
 
He apparently thought that Tyne had a one point lead and wanted to kill off the game. His team mates then wanted to kill him as the ref, shaking his head in puzzlement, blew the final whistle. Most bizarre moment in a senior rugby match I've ever witnessed.
 
Anyway, it'll be interesting to see whether Tynedale or Blaydon comes out on top next season

As Tyne were 1 point behind Blaydon that season, there are probably several incidents that might have led to a different outcome, but none of them will be quite as embarrassing for an individual as that kick at Fylde. Given that it was September, there was no knowing it was going to count that much, but you just knew it would end up being pivotal. Poor chap
