It sounds like that was a Chinnor II side.
If it wasn't then they may be in for a shock.

Rhodri Adamson is a fantastic player if he is a new signing a great player to bring on board

Rhodri didn't make a particularly good fist of his time at Cov even though he played 7s for Jamaica while there. Had a few games and was loaned to Nuneaton.
However, I liked the lad, and he's clearly done OK on his subsequent travels, so good luck to him.

I liked him, Cambridge were blessed for 9s though, with Kieran and Finn, so he only got 6 starts last season. I seem to recall his family were from Hampshire, so they will have an easier drive to Esher.

What was out there yesterday for Chinnor is what they have at the minute I believe? I would presume/hope there will be some strong additions added during the summer? Other wise it will be a horribly long season when it comes around. 
A tad embarrassing being beaten 33-0 at home regardless of what team/squad was out there. Unless Esher were extremely good?

Wouldn’t read to much into it a preseason game of touch means nothing other than a run about

My personal view is that his versatility is his problem. I am seeing him as a 15, although he faces stiff competition there. Obviously he can cover 9 which gives flexibility in terms of replacements. I am delighted he is with us, one of a number of Level 2 and 3 players already joining us for next season. Our side at Chinnor was about 50% of a 1st XV, IMHO. Looking forward to this week’s replay!

Cambridge have announced George Bretag-Norris will captain the club for another season.

Maybe not the most surprising news, but very welcome.
119 caps  and almost invariably playing all 80 minutes.

Hardly a game of touch was it? However by the sounds of it Chinnor must be glad that there was no scrums or mauls. Especially if that was Esher at 50% of a first team squad.

He's at Durham Uni isn't he, after being released last year?
Good lad. Should do very well for you.

Interesting definition of "local" there, it being about 45 miles from Darlington to Corbridge.

When you live in the North East that is local. There is only really Blaydon closer in the national Leagues.
This is not Lancashire.

Darlington Mowden Park are delighted to announce the signing of Tom Broadhead ahead of the 2021/22 National One season. The young scrum half joins from Northumbria University and becomes DMP's fourth new signing of the summer. Asked about his switch to the Arena, Broadhead said: "I’m excited to be joining DMP and look forward to getting the new season underway!"

Broadhead signs having been an integral part of Northumbria's last BUCS Super Rugby Campaign in 2019/20. Speaking about the latest addition to his squad, DMP Director of Rugby Garry Law added: "We're really pleased to have Tom join us after his time at Northumbria Uni. He is definitely the kind of 9 we like at DMP and will fit in very well. He will add real competition to the group of scrum halves we have for next season."

LOL LOL

Of course no player ever says those words, they are "attributed" to them by the Club's PR Officers who assume we are all stupid!
