We've finally got a fixture in the diary and something to look forward to!
Our training sessions over the last few weeks have been running brilliantly, with many more Sulians up at the club than in recent years. We're looking to carry this momentum forward into our first scheduled match, a friendly against Warminster RFC 1st XV on Saturday 8th May.
We will be playing the adapted ruleset as specified by England Rugby. You can get the full details here but essentially it's the standard game with no mauls or scrums. These changes will obviously lead to a different style of the game, which we have been training towards in recent weeks. This first game will be a test of our fitness, having not played a full match since our last fixture of the 19/20 season against Keynsham IIs at Keynsham RFC. We're cautiously optimistic about our chances, though!
Kickoff is at 2pm up at Old Sulians. For more information please feel free to contact us. We're also looking to schedule friendlies on the following weekends in May!
