Rugby Prospects. NEXT SEASON'S FIXTURE LIST. j The prospects of the Llanelly Rugby Club have never been brighter than they are to-day and not for many years have the committee been able to look forward tc a new season with a credit at the bank of £213. The debt which hung around the committee for a number of years has bl-en a bugbear to the progress of Rugby locally^ but thanks to the remarkable performances of last season's young team, for it can be positively described as "young," the committee were able to take over £3,000 in gate receipts. The remarkable successes of the Scar- le-ts against the Colonial and other teams von for them fresh fame in football circles. Record gates were witnessed and the enthusiasm displayed was typical of olden days. The majority of last sea- son's players will be available for the scarlet jersey next season again, with the exception of H. Graham Davies, the clever young centre, who has returned to his studies at Guy's Hospital, Lon- don, and the Rev. W. T. Havard, the popular international forward, who is shortly departing for Oxford. There are however, a number of clever young ex- ponents of the code in town,- and the new committee will have an excellent reser- voir of talent to draw upon. A few weeks' time will see the turnstiles at Stradey in use for the "Rugby crowd," and if last season's performances can be repeated Llanelly will become one of the strongholds of Rugby in Wales. Ap- pended is the fixture list for the coming season:— LLANELLY RUCBY FIXTURES, 1 Season 1919-20. 1919. Sept. 6.-Praetice Rome Sept. 13.-Pembroke .Away. Sept. 20.-Bath Away. Sept. 27.-Swansea Home.
