Steady as we go

20 Sep 2017

Whilst its only 3 weeks into the new Premiership season, it would be  a bit daft to pretend we are not very happy at the way the boys have played. Twenty one tries  scored suggests that we have set out to play an open brand of rugby, after all the game is an entertainment and we want everyone to enjoy watching us play. Its way too early to be getting excited and Hawks this week will be a difficult test . At the time of writing they have 3 pros available to them and will be coming to wipe the smile from our faces as they too managed a win at Millbrae so coming to the Greenyards will hold no feasr for them.

Both our teams performed very well last week, the Storm were 28.0 up by half time but then had to play 10 mins with only 12 men as the ref  decided to bin 3 players at once. I shall refrain from further comment as it takes all kinds to make a World. 

The club is buzzing at the moment, numbers are good and there's certainly a very positive attitude in the air. Lets just see what unfolds in the next two weeks as we take on two top sides who will both  be looking to have playoff places.

The attendances at our first two games have been excellent so  please come along and  give is that extra bit of edge. Bring a friend or if you have'nt any borrow someone elses , the beer is good the chats good , and life is too short to be stuck in the house.
