Revised schedule for Wednesday's festival

With more information now available about likely player numbers for Wednesday - and the news that local press and Stuart Kenny (Director General of the Hertitage Foundation) will be coming along - the timetable of matches has been amended a bit.

Well, quite a lot in fact

The main aim of the day is for everyone to play against the Canadians, and also to give their fairly large party as much game time as possible. So games involving I E Weldon will be 20-25 minutes each way, and other "warm-up" games between English sides about 10 minutes each (so we stay within IRB playing time rules).

In addition as the encore for the combined Letchworth and Sudbury National Cup team "Letchbury" will (in effect) live one more time as we will combine with Sudbury for the day (otherwise we would have to play them - again!) as one of the three "teams" in the festival, alongside a largely free-standing Aylesbury, and a Barbarian side of Peterborough, Ely, Towcester and Aylestone St James.

As most girls in the Letchworth and Sudbury teams now know each other quite well, and with the press and "VIPs" coming at c1pm, "Letchbury" will now start the afternoon against the Canadians while the other two teams will get a game or two to warm up. The result of all this is the following timetable:
  • 12.45 Letchbury v I E Weldon (25 mins each way)
  • 1.20 Aylesbury v Barbarians (10 mins each way)
  • 2.00 Aylesbury v I E Weldon (25 mins each way)
  • 2.20 Letchbury v Barbarians (10 mins)
  • 3.10 Barbarians v I E Weldon (25 mins)
  • 3.30 (optional) Letchbury v Aylesbury (10 mins)

We can also obviously move players around a bit if any side is short for their Canadian games.

All of the teams promise to be pretty useful and challenging opposition - although a "scratch" side even the "Barbarians" will be packed with regional players from at least two regions.
