I just wanted to thank Mike Kwedar and FWRFC for doing such a fine job this season.
As one of the older members of FWRFC it is great to hear about the clubs current success.
Fantastic job on the website . I look forward to seeing some of the games this spring.
Best of luck for the rest of the season!

will have the opportunity to become involved with the "Fort Worth Rugby Club" in
the near future. Keep up the good work.

I am glad to see the club doing so well. I played for FWRFC from 1981 to 1991, and
am now a member of the Nottingham Casuals RFC. We would be pleased to help arrange a tour
of the UK, providing competition or information on other clubs. You can contact me at the
address above or see our web page http://www.rugby-club.co.uk. May I suggest adding our
site to the links from your site? All the best.

For James Walters, Keith, Buddy, Brett and the boys of the club from Peter Reynolds
currently in Sarajevo. Came across the site while looking for Rugby pictures and
recognised some of the faces from when I last toured with Wales OTC in 1996. Great work -
keep it up. I have started a team here in Bosnia but the snow is getting a bit deep at the
moment. Looking for the ball in 20 in of snow is not to be recommended.

For James Walters: Spud (Ritchie Lewis) told me about the site so I thought I should
have a look. Its pretty good too. How are things mate? E-mail me with the wedding dates if
you read this. How is Lindsey? and have you told all the boys overthere about the night
you and Matt were dressed up as nuns and you lost your watch in the back of my car. Have a
couple of Jack's for me when you get chance.

To James Walters, just happened to come across this page and had to send your club a
note, (if anyone sees him, tell him to look this up). How are things TEX, Richard here
from last years Aberavon side, Jacobs and I are still at the club and the team are
struggling a bit. The games are much harder than last year and we are struggling a little
behind the scrum, even i'm playing in the centre. I read in the reports that you were
playing outside half, maybe we should swap clubs. Enough of all that rugby shit, how are
you and Lindsay (whens the wedding), if you can get access to the NET look up Aberavons
unofficial website and leave a message there. All the best Richard Lewis

WOW! No offense to our competition,but I have to admit,the easiest thing FWRFC did
this weekend was play rugby.14 hours of a 57 hour tour spent in or around an airport,8
hours in a Motel 6 bed with Trey ,the best meal I remember was at Shoney's,(they say we
had a good steak but I don't really remember),and the only recoord we set this weekend was
18 showered and packed in 1 room in 1 hour so we could get the airport on time to catch a
plane that was delayed atleast 12 double scotches.All that said,you guys who didn't come
missed a fun time.We played well when we had to and had fun when we wanted.P.S.--Watch for

We of the dark side (referees) had a good time with challenging games. We were
treated with respect by all participants. There were a number of very good games in spite
of what may appear to be uneven scores. The competiton gets better every year as does
tournament management. Good job gentlemen.

televsion stations. I can only get a chance to watch a game only a few times a year.

Best Wishes for the new season and the cowtown tournament. Planning to visit James
and Lindsay in the not to distant future. Aberavon Wizards have not had the best of starts
to the new season but are slowly improving. I hope the club will make the Nationals this
year. It sounds that there is a need to improve the fitness level?. Will keep in touch
Best Regards Bob

I say what a pleasant surprise finding an obviously very keen rugger outpost out
there in the heathen world of political correctness and therapists if you feel victimised
about your hair colour and sueing if someone runs down your cat. I am a once small, fast,
openside; now reduced to fairweather hooker or winger? can you catch your breath.I have
allways played at very low level my club just having been champions of the Warwickshire
league which puts us approx as far from what we call in the UK first class rugby, i.e.
national leagues as its possible tobe. Oh yes we plumb the depths. My favourite game
sensibly was my debut for our 1st team aged 19, at no.7; fairy story time: line out in
Aylstonias from Leicester's 22(we wer at home), inside break from our outside half; popped
it up for me to crash over. Its been downhill since then my favorite match for ocmedy
reasons was a game for our 3rds against what was originally Jaguar cars works team when
formed in I think the 40s or 50s.It wasnt so much a bad tempered game but more the referee
was obviously a little over tired and emotional. Anyway after constant and it must be said
contrived to the point of farce questioning of his decsions he lost it big time...... blew
one loud blast, advised both teams he (sic) just couldent take it anymore and left the
field throwing his whistle behind him in an overly flambuoyant manner.He was last seen
head in hands; crying his eyes out behind the changing pavillion. Anyway, early bath and
on the piss at 4.30 instead of 5.30. Singing off now. I wonder if your rugby culture is
the same as ours; perhapas in an ironic way.

On Saturday, the Texas Rugby Union Select Side defeated Dromore, Ireland RFC 32-12.
The Irish led 12-10 midway through the first half, before the heat and the oversized Texas
team began to take their toll.

Come on boys, let's sell some ads already. G.V. Manning's been dipping into the
kitty again to fund his numerous vices (LAWYER-SCUMBAG), and the cupboard is now bare. In
other words sell some program ads or we'll have to cancel some friendlies and provide an
immigrant workforce to Mr. Weatherby. Oh yeah, and if don't know Mr. Weatherby you need to
speak with me - I got somethin' for you to do this Saturday.
