We have had to move players between squads due to some players now letting us know that they won't be returning this season, unavailability for this week and a number of absentees within the forwards population. We were left with a very light B squad 2 forwards light. As a result two backs have been moved into the forwards in the B team (thanks!) and two A team squad have moved to backfill their slots.
All in all this means a stronger B squad, more playing time all round, a change in venue for a couple of players and a change in playing position for a few players. Thanks in advance for your flexibility.
Going forward, and in anticipation of injuries and unavailability in the winter school term, Bob has scheduled single fixtures on alternating weeks - this means that we can perform bottom up/top down squad selections for those fixtures, this has the double benefit of avoiding over-playing and ensuring that those players on the cusp of the A squad who may only get 1/2 a game in the A fixture get more time in the B fixture.
