Commiserations to Holyhead RFC who, it seems, suffered the biggest defeat in the history of the Welsh or English national leagues at the weekend, losing 181-0 away at Llanidloes.

Apparently a bunch of their players went on a bit of a bender on Friday night and failed to make the trip the following day, with the team playing most of the game with between 11 and 13 players (which, if memory serves me correctly, = 12?).

Anyway, consequently Holyhead conceded 29 tries – apparently one every 165 seconds –  which is a good  effort but still some way short of the world record 350-0 defeat suffered by French Third Division side Vergt against Lavardac in 1984.

Must try harder...
