The United game against Exeter, to be played on Monday 18th December, will be held at Royal Wootton Bassett RFC's ground as part of Gloucester's initiative to play A League games at local clubs.

Disclaimer: This is not a poke at the Citizen/Gloucestershire Live or whatever.

The headline that came up on my Google Alerts was 'Gloucester to play home fixture outside County'. I came on here with my heart in my mouth - expecting handbags at the least.

Pleasantly relieved :)

Hardly!! The distances from RWB to Gloucester and to that place down the A46 are virtually the same!!

Surprised me...apologies only a couple of miles in it! Last time I was there was an U17s Cup game (watching!) and it certainly left me with the impression that they were all Barf fans ....

Never mind, always good to do missionary work in a land where they know no better....

Perfect!

I'm moving to RWB in a few weeks from Tuffley! I'll look forward to a leisurely walk to watch the Mighty Cherry and Whites on my new door step!

Exciting!

Excellent move by the club to nurture support from Moonraker territory

I’m afraid that this is just another kick in the nuts for members

If I recall correctly both Jonny May and Gareth Evans came from Wootton Bassett RFC, perhaps Henry Trinder has a connection too, so perhaps it is a small repayment?

Irritating and an insult to club members IMHO
