Print This Post Print This Post

24th Jan 2010 After a 6 week lay off, the under 15’s were looking to blow away the cobwebs with a good performance in a re-arranged match against Tynedale. The team made a solid start with Andy Glendinning giving his opposing centre a taste of the Tynedale pitch. Carlisle looked as if they had not […]

24th Jan 2010. Carlisle Under-10’s shook off the cobwebs from their recent weather-related lay off to notch comfortable victories over Millom and Upper Eden. Bolstered by three players borrowed from the under-nine squad, Carlisle were soon into their stride in the first match against Millom and ran out 11-0 winners. Christian Tait was in scintillating […]

24th Jan 2010 A Carlisle Under 9s team started 2010 with a bang at Upper Eden with a three way match against a mixed team of U9s and 10s from Upper Eden and Millom. The first match was a closely fought game with Upper Eden twice leading in the first half as Carlisle took there […]

Durham City 22 v Carlisle 7

North 1 East League Saturday, 23rd January 2010 Definitely below par from Carlisle in this bottom of the table clash at Durham City for their first match since 12th December. Under performing, as they did in this encounter, does not bode well for the city side who really are going to have to work hard […]

Under 16’s v Wigton

Neither team had played competitively for about six weeks, thanks to the recent cold spell….so some initial rustiness was only to be expected. Wigton came with a point to prove after the reverse fixture in November, and started strongly……camping in the Carlisle half for the first five minutes. Carlisle finally broke out, and the positions […]

U14’s v Keswick 6th Dec 2009

Carlisle Cobras (Under 14’s) welcomed Keswick to a very wet and muddy Warwick Road after the recent spell of very wet weather, to play on a pitch that at best was boggy. Keswick started the game very strongly indeed, pushing through Carlisle’s defence in the 4th minute of the game, leading to a well deserved […]

Rugby Returns

After the long lay off because of the inclement weather, Carlisle resume their league programme away at Durham City on 23rd January. They will be looking to avenge a defeat earlier in the season when, at Warwick Road, they allowed Durham to sneak the league points against the odds. Even during the enforced break, training […]

Hughes Returns

Print This Post Print This Post

Scrum half Tim Hughes has returned to the city after his eighteen month jaunt around the Antipodes. His return will add competition for places in the back division, particularly in the half backs, where his indomitable foraging at half back is almost legendary, despite his youth! Welcome back Tim and we all hope you have […]
