There certainly seems to be a distinct Antipodean flavour to the BSE squad this year, but by my recollection it is not as extreme in terms of it's multinationality as it was last year, when as I recall, the BSE players at our place all performed with Babelfish in their ears TongueWink

In addition, they fielded what appeared to be a lawn mower on the left wing.  I was confused at first but was later advised it was one of several Suffolk Colts in the side, which was re-assuring.  They do have a youth policy of home grown (and trimmed) players. LOL

All in jest of course

Ahh........the green green grass of home.
Very pertinent in BSE's case as they haven't lost there this season..........yet.

  Based on Peters list. Two have come through our youth, seven more have always lived in the area but have played for other clubs both higher and lower level. Our wider squad has more local players. Again have come through the minis and youth or have moved across from other local clubs with a view to develop their rugby and are now making that step up. Sorry for delayed response forum kicked me out for some reason.

Thanks for the detailed feedback Thunderbird.....good to have an BSE contributor.......F.A.B. Wink

Not sure yet if I will make it to the game Saturday, but it should be a cracker.  Am hoping we send a strong side.  i look forward to some match commentary from you no matter the result.

I guess that your boys are strong favourites given your home record, but I hope our lads front up nicely ?

It should be a great (and I hope) tightly contested game.

p.s.   good to see your home form turning around.....it was dire last season....no idea why Confused

I see your second string has called off. Highlights our problem of getting local players playing at the correct level. That is not meant as a criticism of your club but the wider problem of getting players playing regularly.

That’s a shame but the impact of injuries has been huge again this year.
It’s not long ago that a second team player would step up to the firsts and a third team player would fill the gap and so on but that happens rarely now it seems.

The Raiders travelling side had many missing again and the last I saw, only 4 on the bench.  I was not there but it seems that the lads that pulled the shirt on on the day, gave a very good account of themselves Clap

Another very good win for Leicester......their outstanding defence continues to stand them in good stead.
Can they or Clifton gatecrash the promotion battle ?   We will have to wait and see, but both are on very strong runs of form.
If anything, this league seems to be getting tougher as the weeks go by ?   I suspect that away wins in particular, will become very difficult to come by for all teams in the fixtures ahead.  Having (potentially) five teams involved in the promotion battle and maybe another five involved in the relegation battle, makes for a lot of very motivated sides.  much fun ahead Wink

Leicester Lions withstood a fierce second half from Taunton and kept the try score clear, making a bit of a fortress at Blaby, long old journey to the seaside on the South Coast again this week.

I agree Sweaty. Chatted to a few of their supporters in the Bar !! Great Rugby chaps and also thoroughly enjoyed the game and the atmosphere and facilities at HQ.
They had 6 yes 6 DR players called into the Leicester squad !!
Hey ho
fabulous Malbec being consumed as I type.

Don't know who you were talking to but they were wrong, there are 4 Tigers academy players DR'd to the Lions and there was one Lions player who played as a guest for the Tigers v Gloucester in an "A" league game.

The Lions squad did not look significantly different to previous weeks (to me) and Ed Sumpter was back from Tigers and on the bench ?
Either way......the Lions lads with the shirt on played well and IMO, the guys playing at 6 and 8 , Godefroy and Cairns perhaps ?  ........were excellent.  Johnson and Hamilton in the three quarters were also standouts.  But I thought the result reflected the game overall, with Raiders the better side.  Well done again lads TongueClap
I was a bit disappointed with the two red cards at the end.......it was a silly scrap between nearly all players and it will be a shame if either player gets an extensive ban. 

But all that takes us away from the bigger news of the day which is the outstanding efforts from the cellar dwellers.  Hard to judge who did best really......they were all outstanding in different degrees and who can tell how things may end up at the bottom ?  I suppose the continuing efforts of Westcliff, particularly at home, might take the biggest headline.......Redruth and now Esher are big trophy wins and might indicate that they will NOT be in the bottom three at seasons end ?  
That said......who will Ouch ?   Bournemouth win,  Sutton take Titans oh so close and Barnes win away at Woolams ?  Bizarre stuff.

None of this should take away from perhaps the result of the day......it seemed to me that Choppers were looking a bit fragile in recent weeks and Clifton juist mighty ?  
It seems that the Redruth defence has done it again and perhaps emulated their result at Dry Leas a while back ?  Great result regardless and a tough week for us predictors Wink

I see from BSE tweet yesterday that our red card for our hooker was for a homophonic slur, well that must be a first, where’s that in the laws?, even though I don’t like this sort of behaviour, but a red card?, I don’t know, it could have been justified, I wasn’t there.
The league results surprises me every week, each team is capable beating each other, a slight gap emerging from the top three, but I feel it won’t be for long!
Roll on next week!

If it was for a homophobic slur then I would praise the referee for showing the red card. Absolutely no place for anything like that in any sport.

How can a homophobic slur be justified?

I am not defending the player, but where is it in the laws of the game? Is all I am asking, but I guess some of the posters will find it for me.
