Looking forward to trips to Reading and Canterbury with Mond. I am hoping for some exciting rugby and happy faces. Been told the standard is higher than before. Best wishes to old friends and new.

Hope you enjoy the season ahead. Was sorry to see Esher go but compensated by the arrival of Richmond as an away club that is within relatively easy reach. There are some thoughts that Mond start as N1 favourites. Many feel you did not deserve to go down plus I believe you will be retaining most of your squad?

It looks as if Will Warden will still be playing. It was thought he was retiring, but the announcement was that he was 'retiring as captain'. He actually did that last season. We've lost two excellent props, a scrum half and a flank to pro teams. Also Chris Davies has retired. He was the mainstay in my opinion, playing lock or No 8. Otherwise we may have AllHuckleberry, a flank injured for the whole season, returning. Jono Woodward, a very talented wing, is injured. If he recovers I can see him causing a lot of problems to defences.

There are a lot of strong players left and if the training regime we followed in the Championship is maintained I thing we're in with a shout.
But prediction in rugby is akin to betting on horses, especially as we've been told that N! is stronger now.
Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to some cracking games. Shame I won't hear that commentator say Come on Esher',though.

Pappashanga do not book your tickets just yet
The Mond have been instructed not to post their fixtures on the web site
If you are away supporter coming to the Mond hold back 
1 if we are in NAT 1 none of our home fixtures have a SET time as we share the ground with LS
 LS have  first choice, as they are in a higher league, they have can choose when they play
Championship fixtures have not been decided yet due to problems already documented in other threads 
2 we may not be in that league

'No2' sums up the Leeds situation quite well.

Really not fair to ask Richmond to play in the Champ now. They will already have cut their cloth for next season.
