Senior Rugby is underway this year and we’re off to a strong start. A Mitcham blitz tournament provided our first games and we shaped up well. Losses to Wilsons and Edenham were followed with a win over locals rivals Glenthorne. We have lots of games coming up on Wednesday afternoon, and will need to get full attendance at games and training sessions to make progress. Most of our games this year will be as a Senior team, so it will be a case of 13’s, 12’s, and 11’s all pitching in and working as a team.

We have Mitcham Bulls games coming up again Graveney, Greenshaw, Wilsons, Woodcote and hopefully some other Croydon schools coming up and we need a strong representation in the league this year. We are also in the process of booking in some games against established local schools for Wednesday afternoons so hope to have a decent number of challenges this year. We now have help from Sutton and Epsom who have donated a 1st Xv player to assist with coaching on our Wednesday afternoon sessions. This should have a big boost to our forward play, lineout’s and ruck’s specifically.

Season is up and going and the boys have played the pre season warm up at Mitcham Bulls RFC. The boys played really well beating Glenthorn. We have our first game of the league on Tuesday against Wilsons. Good luck to the boys.
