1XV faced rampant Tottonians

17th January 2015

Stunned by two converted tries in the first ten minutes Eagles gradually inched back through the boot of Brian Collins to 9 - 14 at half time and a dropped goal immediately after the restart improved the score to a heartening 12 - 14 but then the Tottonian  backs cut loose to end the match at 12-45.  Eagles dropped to 8th in the league. Tough times guys!

U13's go top

11th January 2015

The Eagles U13's A have gone top after an epic top of the table clash against Farnham.

At one point in the first half Eagles were 24 - 7 down only to retrieve it to 24 - 12 at half time.  Farnham thought they had one it, but the determination of the boys meant the battled back to 24 - 22 with a few minutes to go.  Farnham conceded a penalty and the Eagles went for the kick, with the wind swirling the kick went over for the win, 24 - 25.

Well done to the boys for a monumental effort and to the coaches.

Result Alleynians 24 Eagles 30 (bonus point for four tries). A very encouraging performance in which we looked and played as a well coordinated team. And we moved up one league place to sixth! Dom Cornwell has produced an insightful match report.

Vice Presidents' Lunch - 17 Jan 15

5th January 2015

On Sat, 17 Jan 15, the Club will be hosting its annual Vice-Presidents’ Lunch prior to their fixture against our old adversaries and good friends Tottonians.  As you know, this event is very special in the Club calendar, and I hope that you will make a special effort to come along and join me, other VP’s and friends on the day.

We will assemble at 12 noon for a pre-lunch ‘snifter’, prior to sitting down to eat a sumptuous three course meal promptly at 12.30pm.  This allows for plenty of time to reminisce before we go out on to the field to watch the match which kicks-off at 2.15pm.  Partners and friends will, of course, be most welcome to come and join us.

The three course costing £15 a head meal will consist of mushroom soup, followed by beef and Guinness stew, steamed syrup sponge and cheese and biscuits.  Wine is sadly not included in the price, but an excellent selection of good red, white and rose vintages will be available to purchase from the bar.  

Please either e-mail me on president@eaglesrugby.co.uk  (preferred) or leave a message on my phone 01483 853060, stating the number of places you wish to reserve.  Meals to suit special dietary needs can be provided, and you are requested to notify me of these when replying.

The list of attendees will close at 6pm on Thu, 15 Jan, after which places cannot be guaranteed.
