Cheers Carlos.

I saw something last night about Leicester Lions getting shifted over. I thought Hinckley was a done deal?

Seems the Lions are on Nat2S fixtures, but there's no mention of it on the Lions web site, oh well if it happens so be it, take care you lot and have a good summer off.

The Lions are south but still obviously annoyed as they are 30 miles further away than Hinckley but the RFU put in a 2% "wiggle" room on travel which then sends the decision to the team that came highest in the league that year which was Hinckley and they declined to go.

Lions are one off (if not the longest) serving National 2 North clubs and to be transferred when they are further away is not on in my book, I think its a disgrace personally but then many things are with HQ are !!!!

They will now have trouble with players not wanting to travel and the games like Redruth will cost them around £2500 - £3000 which they may not have, so I think the website is the least of the concerns at the moment. 

keeping the team together and working out where to find the extra funds that they have not budgeted for are, but if anyone can have a positive spin and make it work, it is Ken, Roger and Andy.

Good luck gents and hopefully see you next year.

It is one of the reason Cambridge are desperate to stay up in National 1  - we do not want the extra travel that comes with relegation.  Our trip to Redruth would be even longer than Leicester's.

At least there is only one Cornish club this season. I remember when there were three.

Bear in mind every time the Norherners blithly speak about the rich southern clubs, they have to make and pay for those journeys every season.

And it is much worse for Redruth than for the South Eastern clubs.

Vividly remember the trips and the costs for Tynedale to travel to Redruth, Launceston and Mounts Bay and when we lost one of them they were replaced with Jersey.
 
Having said that Newcastle to London by train is far quicker than a bus to Luctonians or Stourbridge by far.
 
Funny old world.

Hope the northern comment wasn't aimed at me !!!!

My dad lives in Ashwell and 3 of my very good friends played and are still active with the mighty Blood and Sand Wink

Saying that you rich southerners do have it easy on the travel front ...... try driving across the peak district in January in thick snow ..... a 1 hour journey can take 3 hours ....... what is snow you ask camquin ?!?!?!?

Funny old world indeed !

Snow, is that releated to the other miythical best - rain?

I am old enough to remember the Cam freezing solid enough you could walk on it and the fog being so thick you could stand under reality checkpoint and not be able to see any buildings.

But I have freinds in the Peak district and have visited over Christmas, so I am aware of driving those roads in bad weather.

Rain is standard at Dore More in June, ask anyone on here that has visited !!!! 

The rich Southern clubs would have a heart attack if they had to visit in January ..... that fine stuff you call rain down there is not rain I can promise !!!

Ah the river cam ....... fond memories of my dad taking part in the bumps.

However, frozen over really ????

However 3 Cornish journeys in one season is defiantly a step to far !

Spelling TD.
Too far...not to far.
Three trips to Cornwall sounds like a very long and enjoyable weekend on Tribute and Proper Job.

Try a pint of a proper Cornish beer - Mena Dhu - far superior to either of your tipples

good attitude Mrs Oliphant........i like Tribute  and love Proper Job......we sometimes have the luxury of both round our way.  I defer to 999 on the other ale......not tried it.
i would point out however, that some of the best ale I have ever encountered was up at Stourbridge a few years back......not sure now due to ageing brain, but may have been a Wyevale breweries tipple,
magnificent.  And I should point out......that was BEFORE the game.....so no euphoria involved at that point.

I would also point out that a few Nat2s sides have had the opportunity of visiting the likes of Tynedale, Blaydon, Wharfedale et al.  I for one considered this an opportunity and a privilege.....I know many of our players thought the same.

It seems Lions might indeed be hard done by in terms of choice, but it could also be a great and novel experience ?  I hope they keep all of their best players mind.....they will need them.

Lastly.....many complain about the one trip to Cornwall.  What about Redruth in the other direction ?
I imagine the problem is somewhat dramatically compounded in their case ?

I have to agree Darth, we all moan about the one trip to Cornwall - Redruth have to travel every other week, with a large number of those trips at least as far as London, an unviable task

Tynedale is situated in such a gorgeous part of the country that I have persuaded Mrs Bolognese to have a week's holiday in Corbridge later in the year. I shall probably go to Mauritius
