Meet the players

Very well attended event last evening. Good to be introduced to the new faces. Good to see the healthy relationship between the PZ and N club with CP and a useful training exercise for both squads. Despite the obvious gulf in class, the Ams boys competed well, especially at scrum and breakdown and tackled themselves to a standstill. The positive news on the stadium probably convinced a few people to come along - hopefully this will be reflected in attendances at matches. Paves said the aim is to finish higher than last season - so top 3.
The games at Newport and Albion and the home game against Exeter will give a clue to how the season might pan out. There is certainly a lot of pace and skill in the backs, and we've recruited well in the forwards too. We need a bit better luck with injuries and we could have an exciting season. As Paves said, we will be wanting a better start to the season, hopefully with wins in those first two games at The Mennaye.

An enjoyable well attended evening.A warm welcome was given to all the new faces in the squad. Well done to the Amateurs for agreeing to this training match. They acquitted themselves very well.There is definitely a 'buzz' around the club with the stadium on the horizon.Last season I think we surprised a few clubs but this year there is definitely a higher degree of expectation which will bring a different level of pressure.
Really looking forward to see how we get on during the next 3 games as we try to hit the ground running against Doncaster.

First time Iíve been able to attend one of these and it was a great evening. I thought the turnout was good but obviously canít compare it to previous seasons.
Shame our Georgian enforcer didnít have a run out, he looks a smart item. With Brett named as captain and no longer away on international duty, we have a mean looking second row pairing which weíve lacked for a while.
Happy days.
