BURNHAM-on-Sea Rugby Club had both their First XV and Second XV games called off at the weekend due to frozen pitches.

This means that the sides have played their last games of 2022 and will now enjoy a Christmas break.

It has been a fairly good season so far for the First XV who are currently sat in seventh place in the Counties 1 Tribute Western North.

They have played 12 league games, won seven, drawn none and lost five. Meaning they currently have 36 points on the league table.

They started the campaign slowly, losing their opening two fixtures to Cinderford II and Chipping Sodbury respectively.

They turned that around quickly with a 80-22 win over Cleve the following week.

In October the team went on a three game winning run, picking up wins against Barton Hill, Avonmouth Old Boys and Nailsea & Backwell.

More recently though it has been it has been a case of winning one week then losing the next.

The Stags will be looking to move forward in 2023 and climb higher up the table.

The squad is definitely capable of doing so and this can be summed up with the mixture of experience and youth within the team.

They are led by creative and experience fly half Tim Piper; he has been spearheading the side for many years.

And special mention this season should go to Ross Cameron who achieved 250 first team appearances.

But as well as experience, they club has strength in depth which is highlighted by the Second XV.

The Seconds currently sit well in front at the top of Counties 4 Tribute Somerset South with 40 league points. Ten better than second place.

They have played eight games and have won all eight as they have been steamrolling most of the opposition.

Many times this season, players from the Seconds have moved up to the Firsts as well and have fit straight in to the system.

The Seconds are back in action on Saturday, January 14 when they travel to Martock for their first match of 2023.

For the First XV, they host Longlevens at the BASC Ground on Saturday, January 7 for their first fixture of the New Year.
