Congratulations to Cindy who beat leaders Richmond on their own patch in S.W.London yesterday. Two tries in the last two minutes is a pretty special way to do it.

And whilst I'm on about the Foresters, shouldn't this section of the forum be titled: "Hartpury, Cinderford and local rugby"?

This would reflect the fact that Cinderford are in rugby's third tier, something that should elevate them above the "local rugby" term, when they (like Hartpury) play sides from all over England.

(In fact, I think I'm right in saying that Gloucestershire is the only county with a team in the premiership, championship, and national 1. )

Although personally I’m not keen on it being the West Midlands we technically have Wasps, Cov and Birmingham Moseley.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

I think he means Bristol which historically was in Gloucestershire but hasn't been since 1974

But Bristol RFC is part of the Glos RFU...…...as rugby has stuck to traditional County boundaries !!
