29th December 2008 - Meole Brace match
Royals begin the second half of the
season with a visit from Meole Brace Juniors
this weekend. It will be the first time that
the two sides have met since the management
of Meole Brace has changed. Two ex-Royals
are like to be playing for the opposition -
Harvey Carless-Turland and Dominic Robinson

prior to moving to Meole Brace.
Both teams hit a run of bad form just
prior to Christmas and therefore an exciting
game is on the cards. Royals will be
welcoming back Luke Miles and Rory Smith
after injury/illness, both of whom should be
fit to play.
The match will take place on Sunday at
Russell's Meadow with a 10:30am kick off.
Royals will be
playing in blue.
