So the new pitch was laid, just in the nick of time for the new 2018/19 season.  We had the kind cooperation of St. Michael’s College for a few short weeks and we would like to express our thanks to them for that.  The boys are now getting used to playing on the new surface and by all accounts it is a much better mat than the previous pitch.  Given that our First XV haven’t even played a compettitive fixture on it yet, we’re delighted to get the opportunity of first run out.  Our thanks also to all the parents and bystanders who are abiding by the new pitch access regulations clearly displayed on the gate.
