  1. Hi Tim,
    I thought there were about 600-700 watching – what do you reckon? Had a quick chat with Phil Maynard – he seemed quite pleased with the turnout.

    I’m not a football expert (nor indeed a rugby expert) – I thought the game was played with lots of enthusiasm and commitment.

    Pitch seemed to be OK – ball bounced true most of the time – it’ll be interesting to see what happens during January when the pitch becomes “a little heavy”!!

    1. I thought it was about 500 ish, but I’m useless at trying to guess the crowd size so you are probably much closer to the actual figure than I am. Very enjoyable game…thought the pitch held up brilliant, even in some adverse conditions. I’m no expert either, but I certainly enjoyed watching the match and will almost certainly be back at some stage this season…

      1. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens in say January, when the pitch gets a little “heavy”!

      2. Might need a very heavy roller after the Saturday Cov games to iron out all the divots ready for the following week’s footy! – Still think it will be the rugby that causes the problems, if there are any, and not the football…?!
