It's a new dawn, it's a new day , its a new life and it feels gooooood!!!!

After the first 3 games being a false dawn to the start of the season it looks like this week we will finally get under way as Whitby make the journey from the Yorkshire coast to Greenwood road.

I have to start by saying fair play to them as both games last year they were on the wrong end of a heavy score line but unlike some they have stepped up to the mark and are taking on the challenge.
That being said we can't take anything easy or for granted, other teams have got a head start in the league and if we want to retain our title again every game now is a must win.

There is likely to be a new look with people moving between squads and rightly so as for the 1st time I can remember 3TM are having a good number of lads training and earning their chances elsewhere, well done to them.
Also a big shout goes to the fantastic 4 Kelsey, Phil Don, Tombie and Scott who turned out to help Sedgefield at the weekend, by the sounds of it, 1 or 2 more in the right places and we could have helped to turn over the team who are likely to be our biggest rivals this year. 3 of the Sedgefield 4 tries coming from a Billingham player (2 from Scott!!!!!!!!!).

Anyway, back to this weekend, the new warm up gear is here, you will all be allocated a number each game, please make sure you have the right stuff so we know if any goes missing.

I wont be here as will be supping beer in Majorca but will be keen to see how we get on and while you are enjoying your 2 free pints be sure I will be having one with you.

Saturday is a rugby day #OSIOS
