Hi folks,

I suggested starting this new thread ready for our new season a few weeks ago.
No one said "don't bother" or "don't be daft"
So I contacted forum admin to double checked it was OK to start a new thread.

So here we are, good luck for the new season

Mike

OK with me Mike then we can concentrate on the present/future rather than the past.

All the very best to everyone this coming Saturday I will be paying a rare visit to Port on the 14/09 to watch the derby against Wilmslow.

Wilmslow 36 Burnage 32

A very close game which could have gone our way with some joined up thinking
Mark Jennings (ex Sale Sharks centre) was extremely influential

Well apparently GMS has crashed again........

Scores  I have are:- 

Birkenhead Park 35 Northwich 20 Park looking good
Broughton Park 34 Bowdon 14 Decent win for the Houghenders
Douglas (I.O.M.) 20 Warrington 8 Wire not travelling well
Penrith 43 Firwood Waterloo 22 Expected more from 'Loo
Stockport 69 Keswick 3 Long Hard season for Keswick
Vale of Lune 24 Altrincham Kersal 26 Wheels coming off at Vale?
Wilmslow 36 Burnage 32 Great win for the Wah-Wha's
Crouch, Bind, Tweet!

Loo competed well with a few key faces missing (not an excuse, the better team won) but were crippled with an inability to win lineout ball. At least 4/penalties were kicked to the corner (excellently by the new 10 I might add) only for the ball to be tossed away. At least of those ended up behind our own try line 2 minutes later for a 14pt swing! Not blaming our stand in hooker - played out of position and we got found out. Worrying to be honest.

Penrith looked dangerous with ball in hand as usual, but the score could definitely have been closer. Loo down to 13 for a while too for 2 high tackles, one of which advantage was played and a try was scored followed by a retrospective yellow card.

Prett disappointed to see our captain getting stamped on right under the refs nose at the command of one of the Penrith coaching staff - poor form all round that.

No complaints about the result, polish a few rusty elements and get a couple of players back in and we'll do OK.

Hopefully

Lineout was a worry last week Vs Lymm tbh & definitely needs sorting asap, if hooker can't hit their man we need to get someone who can. Didn't travel so can't comment any further, but Sten usually has it bang on... but a disappointing start for sure.

Wilmslow deserved win in a good game with the backs looking good. Ref not great but a quick game on a warm afternoon.

Oh and a fiver to get in.

Some interesting results elsewhere but a long way to go.

Northwich 24
Burnage 20

Burnage played well, again and unlucky to lose.
Only the referee thought that the deciding try was valid.
Hey-ho we move on and get ready for our first home game next week.

Important win for Burnage , Port obviously competitive at Penrith position now clearer at both top and bottom but I think we need to give it another 4 games given the number of close games as well as the od odd thrashing.

Watching from sunny Spain at the mo.

Thanks Bigmal.
A great day in the sunshine, a decent crowd and 11 tries.
Additionally it was the annual memorial game for a guy who was a great personal friend and a great friend to the club.

Two maximums at both the top & bottom. Looks like another year of anyone on their day can win. Good win for Loo vs manx, Bro pk ship 60+ point to Loo last week then go & put 60+ on Keswick, who I fear will have a long season. Surprised by Penrith at the top & Northwich towards the bottom. Big game for Loo vs Vale this Saturday, hopefully a bumper crowd to cheer the boys to a win. Looking like we have a bit of depth to the squad atm, well stocked in key positions.

Loo 20 - 14 Vale of Lune

Close, tense game. Vale play some rough stuff at times and didn't have that extra little something needed to get through a tough loo defence. Certainly knew there was a ref on the pitch. Whistle after whistle, including making our 10 retake a penalty to the corner for being a few metre off the mark. Rules is rules, but come on 

2 early red cards for the 12 from both teams for a brief dust-up. Didn't see what kicked it off, but the Vale 12 did come over and shake hands shortly after they left the field which was good to see. 

Loo lost the other centre to a concussion in the 1st half too but had enough in the locker to take the win. Left a few nailed on tries out on the pitch too.

Derby day next weekend - let's see what that brings!

Yeah, battle of the 12's ended by KO, literally. Too much dropsy in good situations from Loo, at least two tries went west. It's good to watch ATM and the togetherness is for all to see off the pitch. COYGB

On basis of results so far Penrith are certainly beatable having narrowly defeated a couple of challengers at home. Burnage appear to be doing rather better than expected whereas one or two others seem to have slipped this season.

As suggested earlier this still looks like a league with the ability to surprise so lots of tight games with the added spice of lots of derbies?

Agree regarding Penrith. If you kick at them you will likely lose as they are built around fast counters. Play patient through the phases and gaps will inevitably appear
