I reckon Reinach is best SH in the league, better than Faf d C

Hopefully the weather wonít spoil it

The Health and Safety police are trying to set us up for a postponement because of the weather - wind and rain in February.......shock horror. This could be a game for a big Brizzle side to relish whereas Saints prefer a fast open game on a dry pitch. Away win for me.......unfortunately. !

Less Health and Safety Police, more 'Insurance Police'.

Nothing to do with the pitch and itís condition since Saints havenít cancelled a game at home due to the condition of the pitch in all the time I can remember, itís to do with safety to the supporters and those in the ground which you seem to think is just an excuse to cancel a game! If you havenít seen the conditions last weekend and this then all I can say is ask someone to describe them to you!

Yet even with the atrocious conditions last week the game still went ahead, seeing the weather isn't as bad this weekend.

Do you would rather saints said nothing and allow Bristol fans to travel only to find tgat the weather conditions mean that it needs to be cancelled for safety??
