After all that, the game was called off due to the overnight snow. Pity, because I was really looking forward to it after checking and making sure I understood the English variations. :frown:
We played London Welsh U15s on Saturday - and won 53 - 7. Brilliant hospitality before and after the game. We stayed in the clubhouse to watch the last 2 Six Nations game.
We were due to play Richmond U15s today; so I assumed a prestigious ground like the Richmond Athletic Club would have a room for me. :biggrin: Text this morning though to say "Not unsurprisingly, following a pitch inspection, all mini and youth activity at the ground today is CANCELLED due to snow and ice". I never played on the Athletic ground, so to Ref on it would have been an honour. Never mind; if they don't bring a combined team to West Wales next season, we may travel up again, so I may still get my chance.
Fair play to the RFU, even though I'd rung them direct at 4:20pm on a Friday before a 6 Nations game and I must say they were brilliant. :clap: If I'm honest when the lady said someone would ring me back, I was expecting to get nowhere so late in the day and on a day when they must have been busy, but a lady did ring me back personally and said I was clear to take charge and would be covered under their insurance policy.
