Belsize Clean Sweep

Last weekend saw the second and final club day of the preseason with four teams taking to the field in Dulwich against Old Alleynians. Belsize fielded 79 players in an afternoon that saw another clean sweep for the central Londoners. The 1st XV ran out 38 – 14 victors, the 2nds 104 – 5, the thirds 41 – 17 and the fourths completed the rout 31- 22.
The Belsize attacking flair was evident across the board as free flowing rugby lead to the tries rained in from all areas.

BP warming up

Sterner challenges await next week as the 1s(away) and 2s(home) begin their league campaigns against Grasshoppers, the 3s(home) have friendly against Old Actonians 2s, the 4s(home) play British Airways before they make their league debut the following week and the 5s are due to make their seasonal debut.

We are now taking availability for games next Saturday. Given the league sides have restricted squad sizes, we will be ready to find a 5th team game a week early if numbers dictate.
Please complete the online availability form here to let us know if you can/can’t play: http://tiny.cc/Belsize_Availability

If you can’t access it because of firewalls, etc then send in an email to this address with something like the following in the subject line, by Wednesday 9am:

Zach Webb/Available/Hooker or Prop/No Car/07706 123456

i.e. Your name, your availability, your position, phone number and whether or not you’ve a car.

Also, a few of you are still only confirming availability with coaches or captains, given the need for myself & Mark O’Brien to have quick visibility on numbers to gauge the amount of games we need, this has to stop ASAP.
Please use the online form or email to let us know if you are around.

Belsize Park vs Old Alleynians – Pre-season Friendly

The 1st XV ran out 38 – 14 victors, the 2nds 104 – 5, the thirds 41 – 17 and the fourths completed the rout 31- 22.

Belsize vs Old Alleynians

We have a fantastic club day lined up for this Saturday, acting as the culmination of the past two months of hard pre-season training.

We have three matches scheduled and despite many players still being away on holidays, we have almost 80 players to pick from. Thus, the aim is to give everyone a run, easing you back into full-contact rugby, and for coaches to have a look at all players.

Location: http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/eastlondonrfc/location/

12 noon meet at East London RFC

1st XV
1pm meet at East London RFC

3rd/4th Combined XV
1pm meet at East London RFC

We hope those of you who played at the weekend are recovering from knocks & hangovers. It was a good day on Saturday with 3 good wins but all highlighted what needs work at training this week.
