u8's A and B squads win at the Middlesex Festival
On Sunday, both the A team and Development teams won their U8 Shields at the Middlesex Festival. The Development Team came back from 2 tries down to beat Finchley 3-2, and the A team thumped Wasps 6 tries to 0 in their final. It was a great day for the kids and an apt way to (all but) sign-off the season. We doubled our ‘trophy-haul’ for the season ending up with 4 plaques to show for our efforts, and to thrash Wasps was thrilling for everyone.
Under 8’s Head Coach
Chairman's March Report
The 1st XV won one and lost three league matches this month and as it stands will be relegated from the London North One league this season, unless the two teams above them are deducted points due to administration errors, which is not really going to happen at this late stage in the season. Can’t say much, as it been on the cards for several weeks and was not helped by the team having to use over 60 different players during the season so far. No team in any of the RFU leagues was going mount a successful campaign, let along avoid relegation with those number of changes in personal during the season. Hopefully the team can regroup and bounce straight back into this league in September 2013.
The 2nd XV lost their undefeated mantle that this season in the Canterbury Shield league after lots of changes to their team, but are still top of the table will only a few games left. Rogan will be driving his players to maintain their winning ways for the rest of the season, so that they finish on a high.More
Hammers Tigers at the Staines Festival
Hammers Tigers had a tougher time at the festival. Their pool was a strong pool with both Farnborough and London Irish being quite large programmes , but losing by three to large programmes shows that with a bit more organisation the Tigers can and will be more competitive .Jorge will be back for the last Festival which will mean a lot more help with organisation and guidance.
Tigers vs Harrow ‘A’ 0-3
Tigers vs Farnborough ‘A’ 0-3
Farnborough. This game followed straight after the first game, so the children were a little tired having just played a game and one could tell this towards the end.

Hammers Cht vs Staines ‘A’ 4 - 1
Against the home side the hammers made a strong start with Noah , Bertie and Blake continuing were they left off at the County festival . They were in rampaging form first to every ruck and just too good for Staines today .Our new half back pair Cairan and Eleanor started to gel and were solid , passing consistently and accurately . Blake put in the tackle of the match on a Staines boy he seemed to be previously acquainted with !! Victor and Taz were solid in the tackle . Parma was in threatening form and was unlucky not to score Axel ran in 3 and Blake 1.
