Ross RFC 6 - Smiths Industries 0

Ross Rugby Football Club played host to Smiths Industries at the Sports Centre on Saturday, inflicting only the second defeat for Smiths of the season, in Glos. 3 North.

Playing without club captain, Dave Mince, Ross RFC were boosted by the return of some key players, one of whom was Chris Gage, returning to action after six weeks out with a broken thumb.

The game was a very tight affair, with the Ross pack being more disciplined and controlled than Smiths. This was the telling factor between the sides, with Chris Gage kicking two first half penalties which proved to be the winning points for Ross, the final score being 6 - 0. The pack were well led by Tara Barnett and Matt Jones, who stole numerous line-outs at crucial times. Tim Hanks was his usual destructive self in the loose, with centres, Matt Taylor and Adam Clement solid in defence.

Had Ross not previously lost 6 - 5 to Westbury in the last minute of that game, they would have been going to Fairford this coming Saturday with a chance of a play-off spot. The Forest of Dean Cups are now Ross RFC's only chance of winning silverware.

The John Kyrle Walk?


Continuing with this series of archive Ross-on-Wye photographs, to the left and below are more from my previously scanned 'Ross Gazette' collection, plus one sent in by viewer, James Rourke and another by a viewer whose original email I have to confess that I accidentally lost and so cannot remember his / her name.

James sent in the 1870 'Carte-de-vite' photo (before postcards) by F. Bedford, photographer to Prince of Wales and the other viewer sent in the 1918 photograph of Broad Street, both below.

I have no real information about the two to the left. The bottom of the two, which looks like it may have been taken on the 'John Kyrle Walk' was extremely dark and took some considerable enhancing to make it viewable.

The larger photograph at the bottom is of Dowell Boat Builders, at the 'Hope & Anchor' pub. I am not sure when exactly this was taken.

Since beginning this series, several people have asked me for prints. I am sorry but I cannot supply prints of archive, or any other photographs which I did not take myself. The material is supplied for publication with that understanding.

If you think it's cold in Ross at the moment . . .

The photograph of Woodview Lane, which I published last week sparked responses from two ex-pats in different parts of the world who were one time residents of the street - one from Andy Clarke, who lived in Woodview Lane between 1947 and 1970, designing the porch on No.2. The other was from Peter Alker in Canada, who relocated across The Pond from No. 9. Peter sent me the photo below, which he took last week. It shows Lake Ontario at Brighton at a temperature of -25 degrees. We experienced similar temperatures to this in Ross back in 1982 but in Brighton, Ontario, similar freezing conditions regularly last from Christmas until the end of March.
