  1. I know that I have said this before. I’ll say it again anyway. I really enjoy this page.
    Especially when you get home from the match, and it wasn’t too great a performance.lol.😂

    I’ve never been one for statistics, and football history. I think it’s the way it’s penned on here. It seems to be easily absorbed, with perfect bite sized paragraphs.
    Cheers for the effort. NS RFC!
