Half Season Review

It has been a few weeks since my last game as the weather once again takes its toll, its a good time for reflect on the season so far. The year ended with the good news of my promotion to level 11+1, hopefully I can consolidated this in the second half of the season and move up again. 
I have found the standard of games to be very good with the odd exception. Better, faster games bring their own challenges with speed of thought and foot being the main ones, but they also avoid some of the more ugly and sloppy elements of lower level games.
Inspired by Dave Garvey's post on Facebook here are some of the highlights so far.

  • Most Impressive Side: H.A.C 1st (level 9 game so much better than I'm used to)
  • Most Improved Side: Paulines 3rd 
  • Best match (Standard of rugby): LSE v Sussex Uni (fantastic Sussex fly-half)
  • Best match (Enjoyment): RUMS v QMW (just for having a prop admit the penalty was correct)
  • Best Host: Surrey University Ladies (fantastic facilities, great beers and a genuine interest in what I thought)
  • Worst Experience: Refereeing my old side when the ref didn't show up and thus having a frost night drinking with them when they narrowly lost.
I am hoping the weather doesn't disrupt to much of the early season as I want to keep up the momentum I've gained. Its looking like I will have another month or two of mid-week games as you can see the student games are providing some of the season's best moments.
