It was our Pirates Lunch today before the Malvern game and most of the 'Old Boys' were of the opinion that they had just witnessed one of the best ever games seen at Glasshouse Lane. I think everyone agreed. Malvern won 31-37, but we left nothing out on the pitch at the end of the game, nor indeed did Malvern. The game see sawed with us in the ascendancy early on and leading 17-5 just after the break. Malvern responded with three tries, two converted, and a penalty to lead 27-17. We then came storming back with two converted tries in as many minutes only for Malvern to come back with a try and a drop goal to seal the win. Breathtaking stuff and a credit to all 36 players who took the field.
For the record our try scorers were Gaz Renowden, Rhys Jones, Mikkel Andresen and Ollie Burman. Alex Selby was outstanding with the boot with four cons and a pen.

Our Colts had a great game with Broadstreet but lost out in the late stages. Our second XV returned to playing and had a big win at Spartans. Full results to follow.
Best of luck to our Ladies tomorrow in the cup at Wymondham.
This was also the day of our fund raising for Prostate Cancer and I am delighted to announce the sum raised is £1571 through the gate receipts, donations and fund raising at the Pirates Dinner.
