Good luck on saturday! Funny how durham can never field a 3rd team any other week but always seem to find a ex england international and a few county players for cup games! Amazing

As I say it's a great shame the games could not be scheduled so we could have seen both games. All the best to the Bucks and congratulations to all inolved on a great season so far.

To previous poster, stop bitchin, city threes are using players that have played 75% of fixtures this season only in the team, so don't try and make out their bringing in ringers, can you same the same about the west team, I doubt!!

'Previous attempts to organise a fixture between the two sides have failed because Durham said they have a shortage of players'

I think that comment in the article seems a bit provocative, hence the 'no names' jumping in.

I am sure the Bucks team will be simply and purely Bucks.

City 3's are a team of lads who have known each other for years, with s few youngsters thrown in - average age of the pack v uni was 38.The ex county players are 43 and 39, so not really at the top of their game!!!

here's to a good game and may the best team win -

I think its wrong to call them ringers. Teams often develop like this - players who still want to play but not put there bodies on the line as much.
I hope the Bucks will look on this positively and see it as a challenge to pit themselves against quality players, even if a little long in the tooth.

As a City player can I just add how much I am looking forward to what is always a challenging game, whether or not it be in the cup. When all is said and done hopefully it shall be a great game for all to watch and play in and may the best team on the day win. It seems fitting that the two leading teams from both of the regions third team leagues should be facing each other. I am sure that this is the view shared by all of the City players and look forward to a drink in the bar afterwards.

For that matter Quinny I was tempted to post earlier today in Wests favour because the bitter and twisted side of me remembered hammering City with Rovers one week then going to Hollow Drift for a cup game the following week and the side they fielded would have done well against most first teams with loads of Durham Uni 1st XV tracksuits, shorts and socks in evidence.

Ruprett - Was Russian War code for making me play loosehead?
