Anglo Welsh Again

By Cheery Cherry

The Anglo Welsh competition continues to be a bit of an oddity which struggles to make a lasting impression. Last Friday we earned a creditable, if  slightly dour, draw at a distinctly damp Bath ...

At least the game (17-17) had the benefit of being live on TV and on a Friday night under lights so there was a reasonable atmosphere. There were more than 12,000 present to watch Tom Vellacott annoy the locals with a late try with Hook's con briging the scores level to keep out interest going.

This Saturday may be a touch different. We host Newport Gwent Dragons with a 3.00 kick  off on the very day that the Six Nations kicks off.

So we have to compete with Scotland v Wales which kicks off at 2.25 and England v France which has that daft start time of 4.50.

Games against Welsh sides are normally tasty, but given those other attractions and the fact that Newcastle Falcons won 18-6 at Dragons at the weekend you cannot see many making the trip across the Severn.

We seem to be in possession of a short straw.

In The Corner of Pain
At the Rec.
Dripping rain
Down my neck.
Tired and cold.
On a scaffold.
Puddles forming
On the grass.
Raining so hard
I can't empty my glass.
Now and again
When I take a sip
It fills with rain
Up to the lip.
My pace is slow
Like a Chinese junk.
I'll overflow
Before I'm drunk.
The heavens weep
Downstairs I creep
To watch TV.
The boys are braves.
Tooth and claw.
They surf the waves
The game's a draw.
