3000 capacity? I would have thought there would be a lot more than that number of Bristol supporters alone.

I trust we'll have everything wrapped up several weeks earlier anyway.

If we can get clear as early as possible I'd have our front line players ether in for operations if required or sunning themselves on a beach send out the youngsters for the final games.We need our players well rested and ready for a big pre season next summer.

Interesting point BS11 but we still need to work on the game plan as that must be Prem ready before most are rested. But I think this pre-season will be as important as the one in the Hilly/Dave Rowlands era, as we need that same type of fitness increase across the squad for this type of game plan to have a chance in the Prem. Even at this level against many non full timers we have too many players standing still rather than showing the urgency to get into position.

Hilly got the players back for training much earlier than the other Prem teams our first year back. We really surprised a few teams early on, were fitter than most and gathered momentum as a result. Assuming we get promoted would be great to do similar and then maintain it for the following seasons.

Anybody know when Hartbury tickets will go on sale and if so where from?

Unsurprisingly, Hartpury will announce details on their website once arrangements are in place.

I think it was the 4th.June Tiny, I got speaking to Dave Rowlands up at Otley after the last game that season and he was already talking with Glee about getting them back in on that date. Boy how it worked! Never been that relatively fit as a team since, but fitness is something that Pat's Connacht used to great effect to play a full 80 mins.
