I believe it all to be true. Shame a man in your position within the club needs to deny these things. Why not just put your hands up and say “we got it wrong”? I genuinely hate seeing good clubs like Combe falling to pieces because of piss poor management!

There was no sense of any discord from WP at Cornish today - they were well supported, gracious in defeat and we look forward to seeing them next season.

A narrow defeat for Darts, and a massive shame to come away without any points. A slow start with too many penalties gave Camberley an early 0-6 lead. However the Darts pack began to dominate particularly in the scrum and gave the backs some good ball to score two well executed tries on the wings. Some more errors and penalties gave Camberley territory and they were clinical with 2 tries of their own. The result could quite easily have gone the other way had we started with better discipline. However a massive improvement from the 76-10 pasting we received away at the start of the season. Camberley apparently missing a couple of key backs, but with that scrum they will struggle to get any higher up the league. Tough away trip to Havant next week.

Interesting point raised by my companion on the drive back to Kent today, so wonder what you all think:

Havant played the first 7 (8?) games of the year away from home because of the work being done to install the 4G pitch. They are, therefore, playing a significant run of home games in a row at the back end of the season.

Is this unfair on the rest of the teams in the league and shouldn’t have been allowed? Home advantage, obviously, exists and winning is a habit. Whilst the run of away games has ruled Havant out of challenging for the league, their run of home games will have an impact on other teams in the league who will face them (as it’s shaping up) on a winning run backed by the confidence and comfort of home fixtures.

Should Havant have forfeited their home games that they were unable to play because the pitch was unavailable as a result of their own choice install a new pitch? My companion’s opinion was that Havant should either have had to find alternative playing facilities at their own expense, or play teams away twice.

When I say forfeited, I don’t mean conceding walkovers, I mean forfeited the opportunity to play the games at home as the inability to do so was their own fault.

Don't see a problem, I'm sure RFU and all clubs gave them the thumbs up, even if if they do have three pitches over the back.
I think some players will struggle on the snooker like 4G surface and boy does that ball bounce.
Havant in the top 6 at the end of the season methinks, that's if they don't runout of HSB (again).

There have been no resignations
The club is not in debt
There are no plans or thoughts of sacking the DoR
You know absolutely nothing about the terms of the DoR contract

The club is not in a mess and there are no problems with the squad other than an sizeable injury list which I guess most club have at this point of the season. Seriously, if anyone thinks we employed our DoR purely to focus on 1st XV, you are sadly mistaken.

You won’t have bothered to look or check facts but our clubs success is not solely measured on 1st XV results. Last season our 2’s and 3’s fulfilled approx 50% of their fixtures, this season we have had to reschedule only 1 fixture due to player non availability. We have more ex youth players playing senior rugby now than at any other time over the last 5 years and a sizeable contingent of lads returned to playing. We are very very close to once again fielding a 4th team. We have more outside lettings and affiliate sports clubs renting space both on ad hoc and long term contracts than ever before making a commercial success of our facilities. I’d say that looks like progress in anyone’s language wouldn’t you? I’ll

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, It’s people like you that have completely ruined this forum and the very reason why previous regular posters now don’t bother with RM

Well said Sir Q. Good to get some actual insight into your club. I do find it funny when I read about the rumours, myths and fabrications written about certain clubs. I imagine we have all heard things from a friend who heard it from a friend, and then believed it to be fact. However i’m also sure most of it is said to get a reaction. However if it was my club and I was fully aware of the inner workings (which I am at my club), I would react in a similar fashion. Clubs are often judged by how their first team performs, and that can often have a trickle down effect on the rest of the club. But more importantly it’s great to hear you are getting closer to fielding a 4th team soon. Which shows that the committee are doing great work.

OASTHOUSE
your "companion" seems to think having to play our first 8 games away wasn't enough of a disadvantage to us and he wants us to punish us by making us pay to play somewhere else or even play teams away twice!!!!!!!!
I reckon it's time for you to get a new companion who doesn't talk absolute turd!
I mean unless he was asleep for the first two months of the season he'll know that we actually lost 7 out of those 8!
I for one couldn't see why we couldn't play games on our second or third pitches which would've brought in much needed revenue over the bar etc but who are we to argue with the rfu who at the end of the day told us we will have to be on the road for two months!
Yes it was our choice to put our name in the hat for an AGP, but the timing of it all was out of our hands as we don't own our pitch it is owned by havant council and they had to negotiate with the RFU which took way to long and time marched on, so hardly our fault!
It seems that now we have a fair few players back in contention and are getting back to winning ways we have obviously got your "companion" biting his nails and worrying about how other clubs feel about things..ahhhh that's so thoughtful!!
So oasthouse if you let me know which club you support I'll happily send you some earplugs and bog roll in time for your next trip😁

Perhaps think about it from the “what could have been” angle.

Imagine if Havant had actually got out of bed for the start of the season and won some or al of those games, you’d be title contenders at this stage, potentially in the chasing pack with Oaks, Medway, and Camberley, as in seasons before.

How advantageous would a run of 5-6 home games have been then?

That scenario, as with previous Havant seasons, very much coulda-shoulda-woulda, but it doesnt seem like that potentiality was considered at the start of the season.

Happy hunting....

The moral of the story, I just think you all chat absolute rubbish and talking like you’re in the national leagues, bang your heads together and get with real life, stop making up rumours of other teams and just enjoy watching your own team play on Saturdays

Well said, Sir.

From my perspective, I have very little knowledge of, and just a passing interest in, the ways of Kent Rugby, so some of the comments I see on this board do dismay me a little.

I my experience, being close to running a 4th XV is a very healthy position for any club.  Well done.

Sir Q.
 
I'm not going to get into a Bitch fight with you but let this be made clear so that in 12 months we can look back. You clearly state:
There have been no resignations
The club is not in debt
There are no plans or thoughts of sacking the DoR
I truly hope that you are right. Being able to run a 4th team each week is what we all want from clubs in the South East. To see the likes of TWells only putting out 1 team in November and December is truly sad and I sincerely hope that Combe are fixing the issues and getting 4 teams out. However, do not accuse me of fabricating stories. I know first hand that a member of the committee is planning on resigning and I also know first hand about the DORs contract, the finances and the disharmony with so many of the clubs members about the way it is being run.
 
I will be honest and say that a few of my posts on here have been written in such a way to get a little rise from people (Dickon's injury nightmare for example!) but my last post on this subject was very much written as a genuine concern for a club I have played both for and against and I would hate to see it go the way of so many others. As my comments seem so unwelcomed, I can promise you now that I won't mention again the internal runnings of your club or the DOR. I have though put a reminder on my calendar for 12 months time!
Best of luck for the remainder of the season and I sincerely hope that 4th team comes together!
