Referee training nights 9 Nov and 15 Feb 16

15th October 2015

Surrey Mole Valley Group Referee training nights will take place at the Eagles clubhouse on Mon, 9 Nov 15 and Mon, 15 Feb 16, starting at 7:30 pm on each evening. These are for all accredited referees (completed by Steve Smith) or any aspiring coaches or juniors within the club interested in starting on the referee training schemes.

The need for these training courses is because Surrey Referees within our club are currently joining the London Society of referees, going off to university, being injured or just retiring due to age.  Consequently, we are becoming at risk of not being able to effectively cover home games on Sundays without a genuine input of new referees.

Steve Smith will mentor and support all new aspiring referees, and will start the in-house "Academy" system again for young referees if there are suitable numbers.

The training nights will consist of training, updates and the issue of new kit as needed.

Please advise Steve on ssmith@nescot.ac.uk of your intention to attend.

1st XV v Basingstoke KO is now 2pm

30th September 2015

We have just been informed that the previous instructions stating that 1st XV KOs in October would be at 1pm are incorrect and that this Saturday's 1st XV home game v Basingstoke will now KO at 2pm. 

Consequently, the pre-game lunch will now start at 12.45pm.

Super 2's 54 - 7 Chobham 3's

28th September 2015

Following a walkover in our favour against London Irish last week, the 2's faced Chobham 3's in the league at home.  Starting with 13 players initially and then going to 14, the Super 2's played some strong running rugby, albeit with a player less than the opposition for most of the game.  A massive effort by everyone for the first home league game, with impressive running and tries from Sam Prior and Jack Haynes.   Great result!

Next game away against Old Walcountians this Saturday.

Magnificent in Narrow defeat

26th September 2015

In a games of two halves 1XV went down fighting to London Cornish.   Well behind at half time Eagles came back to to score a bonus point for a narrow loss and another for gaining four tries.  Three bonus points and third place in the league after two matches.  The GOTES are very satisfied.
