Match report by Tony Pomeroy Bridgwater brought in Garryn Basson to replace Rob Allen, injured at North Petherton last week and re-instated Ollie McGeown, now recovered from injury, at scrum half. Adrian Tew also joined the front row to replace Joe Bussell. This was a nail-biting game for both sides. Cleve will be well satisfied [...]

Bridgwater will be regretting their missed chances that cost them victory and bragging rights over their near neighbours.  Bridgwater’s kicking boots had been [...]

Match report by Tony Pomeroy This match was a great advertisement for level 6 rugby. Both teams and the referee contributed to a game that kept the crowd on its toes until the final whistle. Yes, there were errors as both sides mishandled and missed first time tackles but this all added to the excitement [...]

The BARFC 3rd XV having lost just one of their five previous matches travelled up the road to Morganians with their best chance of winning for several seasons but in the end they were denied by the narrowest of margins.  Both sides produced an abundant squad with Albion bringing the cavalry of 24 including newcomer [...]

Bridgy Colts visited Chard for their first away match this season and came away with a narrow 12 – 10 victory.   The vagaries of this league meant that in the first four weeks of the season the tams met twice and Bridgy edged both matches by a 2 point margin – which probably has [...]
