Good Day to you Ye Mighty Dons!!!
Well that is basically it! Here we are. It's time for the play offs! My goodness I'm excited.However - let's get through last weekend's adventures first.
On Saturday the 1st XV traveled to Dorking and had a thrilling victory 30-40. The match report isn't online just at this time but will be posted as soon as it is available.
The 2nd XV were also away - they travelled to Richmond and came up against a very strong side - which, my sources tell me, featured a number of their Championship players. Unfortunately our boys couldn't quite nick it - but showed a very very respectable loss of 33-24 - a huge improvement on the first game of the season. Great season for the 2nd XV - well done to each of you for pushing the 1st XV team so hard and keeping that squad so very competitive.
Now this weekend - there is very little else to talk about. There will be a pre match lunch as usual. If you want to get in for this very special occasion - please let shaun or John Woods know ASAP! Numbers are limited. The match against Ding Crusaders kicks off at 3pm. A quick word on this - it will be a highly tense game for both sets of supporters - so whatever the result - let us show our class and friendly nature by welcoming our guests and ensuring we uphold the very best of rugby's values. Not that we don't always - but these tense fixtures can get to people. So win or lose - dignity first.
Lets get as many of the cub down to the game on Saturday as possible. Parking is not going to be good so if possible - PLEASE DON'T DRIVE.
We will be selling some commemorative programmes on the day to raise a bit of income for the club. We have some volunteers to do this - but if some of you could put your hands in the air to help out we would be very very grateful. Please email John Woods to help - this is a big club occasion - so please do not shy away. Email John or me at the usual addresses.
Right nothing else to say at this point - apart from another reminder about the end of season dinner. Please get numbers into Anna ASAP.
Have a great week everyone. Get working on those posters and bunting you younger lads and ladies and I'll send out the sheets as normal on Friday.
