Interested to see how quick Martin and Cameron Jordan progress into first team rugby - if at all.

Love 10s shame more of it isn’t seen.

One of my fondest rugby memories is taking A South Leicester junior side over to Towcester to play in their 10s competition, and coming away with the trophy, much to the displeasure of all the Northamptonshire sides in attendance.

We had a decent number 8 in that side, lad by the name of Cole, don’t know what happened to him

It does amuse sometimes that Cole was a flanker in his youth.
