A disrupted draw over the last couple of weeks has meant it has been difficult to keep momentum going for a few teams or perhaps it has been a well earned break – depending on your perspective!

The improvement in the Youth teams is clearly evident with perhaps some increased game understanding needed at times.

The U16 boys continued their impressive season with a strong win at Sandy Bay. The U14 girls went down narrowly for HKFC in an entertaining affair and a game of missed opportunities for our girls. The U16 girls also went down but continue to gel as a composite team getting better and better each week.

This week also saw the departure of Mitch Purvis back to his homeland New Zealand – a big thanks to Mitch! Mitch did a great job with the U18 boys and I am sure he will be missed! The team will be determined to keep their excellent season going into this weekend with the huge clash against FC.

The younger teams enjoyed the weekend off and still do not resume fixtures for another week. The opportunity to work hard on the training pitch will not be lost on the coaches to ensure improved performances heading to the Christmas break.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Yours in Rugby,
