Once again I would like to apologise for the late cancellation last Sunday. Hopefully you all got a text.
Unfortunately heavy rain is forecast again this weekend but on Sunday morning it turns heavy to light late morning. So we will try for 11.15am meet and will brave light rain. Any worse conditions, please keep an eye on the blog anytime up until about 11.00am.
There is no getogether at the cricket club this week as all Mumbles Rugby teams are playing away. We will rearrange for another time.

11.15 am Beach Rugby & Hotdogs !

This week we will have a later start once again, hope this time is OK with everyone.

Every week the Mumbles RFC U'7's 8's & 9's (all tag teams) have started to meet at mumbles cricket club for hot dogs. This week we have an invite to join them. The sides normally play at Bishopston school and arrive at the club between 11.30 & 12 noon. This will give the predators a taste of what is to come next season.

The facility is ideal for the kids and provides a mini social for parents. I plan to speak to the caterers and organise some extra hot dogs for the "predators". If we arrive for circa 12.30 I hope the hot dog rush will be over and the predators can fill their boots. This will be an ideal opportunity to get some feedback from parents, organise registration ,subs & discuss forthcoming events for example the Mumbles Tag Rugby Christmas Party & The traditional Christmas Parents v Mumbles Predators game that must take place before the end of the year. So I hope you can all make it to the club for a short while. See you on the beach for 11.15am, Jon.

For Directions to Mumbles Cricket Club please see link on Wildcats or Vikings page.

Tag--tastic !!!!

We have had some great luck with the weather, today being no exception. The beach welcomed us with large waves, sunshine & lolly pops.

Great to be back on home soil (sand)! It was good to have an almost full squad on the beach, made up of some new faces. I thought the new young lady that had her debut, did particularly well, scoring a try and winning two of the warm ups. Sorry Mum, I should have given you a reg.form, see you next time.

Today was very pleasing for Chris, Tony & I as it was the first time the predators tagged six times in a row to claim the ball from the opposite team. Both red & yellow teams were tagtastic! Once again Will, James, Dav & Ethan showed great defensive skills and some seriously body-on-the-line tags.

Both Torin & Oliver did some great running in bulldogs today, with the try fest provided by all players - the best in my opinion coming from Luke (from Ethan), when the yellows showed great support play. Hope all players enjoyed the new games, we will practice these over the next few weeks.

Making a Plan & discussing tactics !

Deserved Refreshments !

See you all next week, weather & tide depending, keep an eye on the blog for times.

11am start & back to the beach!!

This week we will be having a later start, hope that is OK for all. Once again their is a particular high tide which arrives at 9.30am & the park is flooded due to the monsoon rains. See you at 11am on the beach, boys don't forget warm clothes as the temperature has now dropped and you can always remove layers if needed.
