The title “slip week“ could bring many a juvenile giggle, but welcome to Saturday 17 February 2018.
A crucial match with Blueharts 5, which could ultimately decide the fate of the M3 was billed to be a dramatic conflict.

Saturday saw the first of a double header for the men’s 1s at Halton against east london.

A typical rainy early February day greeted the Men's 2s made the biblical journey to...Watford for their fixture against West Herts. Buoyed by the report of their opposition's 11-0 thumping last week, we approached the game with anxious optimism.

Jules Hollows by name and he certainly Hollows by nature!
So off we go, chugging up the A1 to Letchworth for the second week in a row.

Usually, on a chilly morning, the 10:30 fixture at Halton is the first to become a casualty (more of those later), but not this one. An early inspection and a quick call to the Hertford 6s captain meant we would give this one a go.
