After a week’s break the First XV are set to take on Old Millhillians away, 3pm kick off this Saturday. After a much improved fixture v Finsbury Park two weeks ago, we are looking forward to building on our progress. We’ve had a few new faces at training and it looks as though we are finally turning a corner…having said that a few drop outs due to work this week sees our squad looking slightly light particularly in the forward, so if you around to play this week please let me know on 07875762577 know ASAP. Much appreciated.

On the social side on things we have the following to look forward too, as well as fixtures …..

John Scannel is organising a lunch at the clubhouse before the league match vs Harlequins, ko 2.30.  It’s a good deal at £10 for a curry plus a pint/glass of wine/soft drink.
