Despite suffering a home defeat there was plenty of substance in this performance and reasons for optimism for the months to come. Unfortunately, the Starch were hit by some late unavailabilities and our thanks must go Swansea Uplands for loaning us 2 players. Their sportsmanship is a credit to their club!
At the final whistle Swansea Uplands emerged winners by 8-32 having had the ability to score from deep with some strong running. The Starch can feel pleased with the set piece; prop D. Oatley to the fore, some solid forward play and the effort and commitment across the park. This was clear for all to see. With the return of several key players imminent there's much to look forward to this winter . The Man of the match award deservedly went to Mark Thomas who filled in at scrum half at very short notice and had a fine game in every respect.
