End The Year With An 'AAARGH!

Delighted with the win at Ealing Trailfinders on Christmas Eve, the players will be keen to end 2016 with another victory at home to Nottingham on New Year’s Eve.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s game, coach Alan Paver said: “The input and endeavour from the players has been good these past few weeks, culminating in a thoroughly deserved and welcome win away to Ealing last weekend.

Importantly, we stuck to task and put our foot down in the second half to eventually achieve the result sought, which provided a terrific feeling."

“Now playing Nottingham at home on Saturday, we fully respect them as another tough and well-coached side.

A high energy, physical encounter is on the menu, where we aim to maintain a focus and put our stamp on a rugby match set for supporters to enjoy.”
