Cu Chulainns 4-16
St Anthony’s Reading 1-04

The M4 motorway cuts a dreary path from west London. It passes non-descript towns like Slough and Swindon as it heads ever-westward, first to the Severn Bridge and onwards towards Wales.

The scenery along this automotive corridor is neither inspiring nor exciting.

It is not a nice place to be in transit.

So spare a thought for the St Anthony’s team that arrived at the Emerald Grounds in Ruiislip on Sunday afternoon for their intermediate county championship tie against Cu Chullains.
