Seems to be a lot of excuses for the 1st XV for the last number of years. I look forward to the year SLC overachieves. They lost by 40+ against Pats when it actually counts (which no matter how that is sugarcoated is unacceptable), same deal last year when they won the trial but lost when it actually mattered. Good luck to the boys today, Ash at Home on Old Boys is the toughest task in the AIC and they start favourities in all games today.Big game for SLC Vs ASH 10As this weekend
SLC big chance to take out 10A, 9A and 8A premierships
Win or lose this round, it sounds like a pretty good rebuild.
Especially with grade 10s making up numbers in the 1st XV which were decimated by injury after a promising preseason win over SPC.
