2ND XV OFF TO GU HILLS
STOP PRESS: Unfortunately the match is cancelled as we could not raise a team.
Another tough match for the 2nd XV as they travel to Glasgow to take on GU Hills
Its been a tough season so far, not for lack of effort though as the 2nd XV aim to pick up their first win of the season.
Plenty of 2nd XV players to choose from with over 45 players having played so far this season for the 2nd XV, it’s just getting the best combinations of players that the coaches are hoping that this weekend they will finally manage to do.
WARRIORS ON THE ROAD TO CARTHA
STOP PRESS: The Warriors go down 34-26. 4 tries though so a bonus point. Match report – Now Online
