    No-one got anything to say about L&SC then?! I'm looking forward to our first year in the Championship section since before I joined the band! And on a great test-piece

    Also looking forward to not missing all of the weekend's 6 nations matches 'cos they're all on Saturday! :clap:

    Good news re the rugby!

    OK I'll start.

    Which bands are buying in half the British Army musicians based in London to help them this year! Lets get that major annual whinge out of the way early. :wink:

    Chunky grins cheekily and removes tongue from cheek!

    We are buying in Ex Army uniforms, as we cannot possibly afford the cost of hiring in 25 players plus four percussionists.

    Are you getting bow ties with the deal? You know how the L &SC rules are specific over neck wear!

    Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no Second section piece at Stevenage (just about on topic LOL)

    Alas not, we will have to make do with last seasons relatively dated, but suspiciously procured, neck wear.

    Quite looking forward to my first areas down South. I assume it'll be full of confused looking people with trumpets and french horns.
