As promised, I went out to Villa Park today to havealook at Villa v Pats. Villa won the 1sts maybe 31-19 or something around that, the 2nds was Villa 24-5 and the 3rds was Villa as well. The 1sts was much closer than the score line suggested and Pats had two yellows given against them one at the back end of the first half and one at the back end of the second half. It got a bit testy at times. Pats scrum was good, but Villa seemed to be able to put points on when it mattered.
After now seeing five of the sides in pre season action and running a form line through the rest, I'm plugging for an Ash v Iona final in the 1sts, and Ash v Villa in the 2nds. With apologies to the lurker, Padua are in the same pool as Ashgrove and will need to do lot more to worry them.
SLC 2nds stronger then Villa 2nds? I think SLC 2nds will beat Villa Seconds this week. However, don’t see either side beating Iona 2nds.
