Ampthill

Thoughts?

After a good showing against Saints we ought to be looking for 20-30 points daylight?

Interesting to see Will Allman on the bench for Nottingham - think he was playing for Ampthill last season on loan

Still lots to work on but some clear potential shown over the 3 games. Looking forward as always to the real stuff and again as always, with a feeling of optimism.

Seems a good result as Ampthill are certainly no mugs. I see The Rugby Paper has us down for a 9th place finish. I would like to think we will be at least 3 places higher than this.

It also says Alex Moon will be with us on a dual reg from Saints. A lock and a big unit at 6"8 and 19 stone.

The RPs lacks the little details on it comments like reporting on the pitch being heavy in the winter months not that it's now better its first thing Costello commented on at the open training session in fact he was he's usual ecstatic self about it. Also how we lacked the physicality in the TEAM well that's changed too with the new S & C guy we are heavier which helps in Scrum & standing toe to toe pound for pound now.

My prediction top 6 maybe top 4 few surprise wins on the way :)
