End Is Nigh

Last league game of the season at Goldington Road and a bonus point win over visitors Nottingham is needed to guarantee a highly creditable third place finish.

Rivals Jersey Reds are just one point behind and they host Coventry so let's get the four tries in the bag and celebrate a highly entertaining and worthwhile season.  Well done all.

There will be a handful of changes with Matt Worley at outside centre and Alex Gliksten starting at scrum half.

Ben Cooper will bid his farewell and starts in the front row alongside skipper Sean McCarthy and Charlie Clare. Mark Flanagan also gets his chance to say a fond winning farewell from lock.

The other change is in the back row where Josh Buggea returns.

Bye Bye Blues: 15. Rich Lane 14. Ryan Hutler 13. Matt Worley 12. Lewis Robling 11. Dean Adamson 10. Will Hooley 9. Alex Gliksten 1. Sean McCarthy (capt)
2. Charlie Clare 3. Ben Cooper 4. Ed Taylor 5. Mark Flanagan 6. Huw Worthington 7. Josh Buggea 8. Jarad Williams

Reps: Jacob Fields, Hayden King, Alex Penny, Oli Curry, Justin Blanchet, Ed Coulson, Pat Tapley.

Please explain if you can a couple of decisions of the todays referee.....

In the second half with Nottingham on our line, three times Nottingham went for the lineout but did not kick the ball out but proceeded with the throw in.......please explain

Again in the second half we were penalised for crossing, well thatís what the referee indicated.........but we were not in procession of the ball......please explain?

Thought Alex Gliksten had a good game, really impressed again with Matt Worley what a signing.

Compo thought the beer had affected my vision yesterday, very strange decisions. I also thought the two penalty tries were strange as Well, very quick. He looked like he was carrying a little bit of weight around his waist 😁great day out though really enjoyed the game good control despite the conditions.

If the penalty offence is from the line out you may elect to have another rather than kick the ball out.

I think this one wasnít for crossing but for blocking the Nottingham supporting runners.

Worley has looked impressive in attack recently, with loads of pace our back line will be certainly be a threat again next season. Also it looks like Hart and Leeming like to look for a break too.

Going to miss Mark Flanagan, hope one of the newbies can work the line out like he can, outstanding player. I thought the front row was awesome today also.
