OUR STYLE OF RUGBY

We are brave, fit & fast.

We love playing with the ball in hand, we are ALWAYS hungry for the ball.

When the ball is on the ground we don’t stop and look, we don’t wait for others to pick it up, we pick it up, we dive on it, we steal it, WE WANT IT MORE!

We run straight, we run hard.

We run into gaps or pass to put our mates into gaps.

We win scrums to win the ball.

We win line-outs to win the ball.

We love scoring tries.

We NEVER let our teammates down, we are brave, we tackle hard!

We get up quickly from every ruck, we never turn our backs on the game.
