Currently there are no senior rugby games this weekend due to the Six Nations re-commencing but the Youth XV are still searching to re-arrange a game perhaps for Friday evening.
But if there is no rugby there then there is plenty about on Sunday morning as our hugely successful mini and junior “Bulldogs” continue their season. There is no better way than curing your Six Nations hangover than getting out and supporting our future stars. They are a joy to watch and continue to impress both on and off the field.
Our Friday night darts team are again in action this week and will look to consolidate top spot in the Pontyclun & District Winter league when they travel to Tonyrefail RFC. “Lenny’s Lions” were on fine form last time they met with the Tonyrefail team at the Clubhouse winning 7-0 (14-2 legs) despite a good 180 on the night from the visitors Phil Law. Our hosts on Friday are currently on bottom of the table with two wins from their seventeen games but that will mean nothing as they look to rip up the form book this weekend and blow the title race wide open.
Beddau currently have a two point lead at the top of the table after second place Ogmore A pulled back points last Friday after a 7-0 whitewash of Ogmore Meerkats. There was a classic game at the Clubhouse last Friday too as Beddau edged the local derby with Cwm Welfare by 4-3. With five games of the season left the title destiny is once again in Beddau’s hands as they look to add the Winter league championship to summer league glory.
Cwm Welfare will have been disappointed to have lost 2-1 at home to Penrhiwceiber Rangers last Saturday in a game they needed to get something out of as they continue their quest for survival in the Welsh league. This weekend they will look to bounce back but it will be a tough ask as they visit second place Caerau. The hosts are nine points off leaders STM Sports with eleven wins and two draws this season. One of them wins was at Mount Pleasant Park back in October where they left with a 3-1 success.
Cwm still just need a win to get out of the bottom three and fingers crossed they could get that this week and then go on to put a good end of season run on.
There is plenty of sporting action to watch at the Clubhouse over the weekend, live and in HD on the many big screens and large TV’s. On Friday there is under 20s rugby and Guinness Pro 12. Then on Saturday it’s the big Scotland versus Wales game at Murrayfield followed by the Ireland v France clash plus all the live Premiership football. On Sunday Italy will try and stop England at Twickenham plus more top live Premiership soccer. Also on Sunday remember there is live entertainment in the bar from 5.30pm and free for members and bonafide guests. So make sure you get to the Club early to get your seat for what should be a great weekend of sport.
When you are at the bar this weekends don’t forget to ask for your lucky Club lottery tickets. Just choose four numbers from twenty and pay the £1 admission fee and you could earn a big jackpot in Monday night’s big draw. If you are not successful this time at least you know some of the funds will go into the Clubs development fund.
Have a great weekend.
