We've just restarted our Women's team and are now playing youth games as 'Friday Night Lights'.

However, the Glos adult men's leagues are having to be padded out with second teams from clubs higher up the pyramid.

The thing I don't understand is the lack of games being played.

One side (Stroud) dropped out of our league, leaving only 22 games in the season. This creates far too many blank weekends.

I'm not advocating going back to the days of playing 40 games per season, but somewhere around 32 should be aimed for when setting up the league structure

A 36-19 victory over Sidmouth yesterday made it nine wins in a row for the Mighty Lyd and moved us up to third place in 'South West One West'

Next week we're away to Chew Valley, who were the last team to beat us.

As mentioned previously, it's a pretty low level of rugby compared to where we used to be, but this is the best I've seen Lyd play for several years

Good to see Worcester win for a change last night, think itís fair to say listening to Diamond that there will be some big changes in the summer & a big South African dominated pack will be in place.

Intrigued to watch the development of Finn Smith over next couple of years, being first choice 10 this season at 19 is great experience

I really wasn't sure how 2 legged games would work in rugby. On the back of 45minutes of this quins game I think it's incredible and encourages teams to take more risks and be really positive.

On the game itself the 3rd try for Quins by Marchant might be the try of the season, the break from Smith to create it is up there with 'that' one by Robinson against Wales.

Brilliant game between saints and quins tonight, 32-31 home win for saints but could've gone either way and noth of them went all out for the win.

In the latest round of evidence that Rugby is better run than football ...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/50300756

short version, sarries docked 35 points for repeatedly ignoring the salary cap and setting up fake companies to pay well over the normal amounts to their better players.

I can't see it being enough to see them go down but they're definitely going to be in the battle at the bottom now.

Saracens should not have been allowed back up after winning a shortened season.

I agree but because of the way things are structured it would've been very difficult to do anything more.

Worcester winning a trophy, wonders will never cease!  Quite how with 20 odd penalties against & 3/4  10 yard march backs Iíll never know.

Felt sorry for Paddy Jackson at the end.
