Hard luck to our U18's who travelled to Corinthians RFC today and came up just short losing 19-15. With injuries and lads unavailable we travelled with a very small squad but the boys showed great pride and commitment coming back from 19~3 down at half time to narrowly lose. A super bunch of players who have a very promising season ahead. ... See MoreSee Less
