North One West (level 6)
Re: [Ostrich] Where are you going - where did you go? RUGBY UNION
Fleetwood 12 Carlisle 32
Admission: £3 incl 20pp prog, very good effort and well above the norm at this level
Fleetwood's first season up at this level and they are struggling a bit (one win from 9 now), however today's performance wasn't bad considering they played the best part of an hour with 14 men after the open side prop was dismissed for a head butt. Carlisle predictably ran away with it in the second half and got their 4th try (and the bonus point) with the last move of the game. Fleetwood actually scored two really good tries in the first half with 14 men but struggled after the break as the extra man told.
The ground is basically two sided (you can't really watch from either end) with the clubhouse and car park on the side you enter on (between the houses, but well signed). It's just flat standing but well enclosed and tarmac'ed on the clubhouse side.
Good, down to earth atmosphere here (no rah rah's in sight!), food and drink was cheap but didn't partake.
