Kings Old Boys' Rugby Union V Hornsby

Gents,

See this week’s update below:

Results:

Last weekend was one of the gutsiest efforts I have ever been involved in at KOBs. We faced Hornsby on their Ladies Day, which always brings out the best in a club. Numbers at KOBs have been strong all season but this week there were a record number of injured and unavailable players. 3rd grade had a number of players backing up from 4s and went down valiantly in a close contest. Even more remarkable was 2nd grade who warmed up with just SIX players and went on to play outstanding rugby, beating Hornsby 27-15. 4th grade got across the line yet again with a scrappy win and 1st grade won a frustrating affair, playing for 20 minutes with 14 players after 2 yellow cards. These outstanding results have us sitting 300 points clear of Briars which is practically unassailable, without Briars having 2 upset 1st grade wins.

Training

For most teams, we are playing for pride and developing combinations for next season. Fitness is still running on Tuesday nights and we have our sprint coach Geoff coming down again this Tuesday so don’t miss out. Thursday training will be on as always.

Social

Plenty more to come here so standby!
