Rugby: A Tough Start!

Saturday 20 September 2014: London Cornish 26 Kings 1XV 10. Teddington 29 Kings 2XV 5.

The 1XV found themselves against much stronger and bigger opposition than they had encountered in the whole of last season. We were fighting very hard and it looked like a bonus point loss at 14-10 with 5 minutes left. A very strong and fit Cornish pack then produced some powerful rugby to score 2 tries at the end earning them a bonus point win. A good game and on Saturday we entertain Weybridge Vandals at Motspur Park. Vandals beat Farnham last Saturday but lost to London Cornish the week before that. I am expecting a tight game. Kick off at 3pm and please let me know if you are coming for a buffet lunch at 2pm.

The 2s were weakened by calls from the 1st XV and were beaten in a non league fixture by Teddingto 2s. They kick off their Surrey Conference 1 campaign on Saturday with a tricky away trip to Battersea Ironsides.
