Well done to all the sides joining the League last Saturday – there seems to have been some closely contested games! At Newcastle the Brumbies won again against local rivals Medicals Barbarians with a late try clinching the result. Meds’ Nick Farkas reports an excellent game played in a good spirit. John Fenn also comment s on the same spirit shown by Grey College who more or less got out of the cars and onto the pitch to play in a titanic struggle against the Crusaders - the result being a draw! Down in Durham a strong St Cuths side got the better of visitors UNN whilst Durham Development had a good game with Collingwood before coming out on top. Unfortunately, the other scheduled match at Stockton between Queen’s and St Hild/Bede never took place due to some confusion over fixtures! I am still trying to sort that one out! I am also resending a list of contacts to the teams’ organisers as I had quite a few people trying to get me during the week, despite the fact that I said I was a way in last week’s update!!! Do please contact opponents and refs early. Regards, Malcolm
