Oh well. For supporters of Ebbw Vale Rugby Football Club reality bites tomorrow as we start our life in Division One East of the WRU's league structure.
It hurts and it'll be tough, but on with it we've got to get.
First up are our old friends from Llanharan, who we had many tussles with in the early 90s in Division 2 of the Heineken leagues. Remember them? They were difficult opponents then and they'll be difficult tomorrow.
I'd like to wish all the coaches, players and officials of EVRFC all the very best for the coming season.
