Thanks to the indefatigable Tony Clifford and Doug we have three teams out – 1sts and 3rds (Comets) at home, 2nds away at Blackheath. And on top of this there is an unavailable list approaching 40 (players, not the retired).

We are a Rugby Club, we exist for rugby, so players come first. If you consider yourself a player then get fit, announce your availability and put on the red and white.

If everyone was fit and available we could (could!) put out five teams. That would be something to aim for.

But we could also back them up – watch them play, support the bar, socialise and, best of all, volunteer to help with the running of the club. Don’t leave it to others!

And, of course, are you a member? Mandate forms are behind the bar.
