Well done Ladies 6s who continued their winning streak at the THD summer league with a convincing 9-2 win against Academicals last night.
Sunday saw the first social Sunday mixed game of the summer, with Wanderers Mixed up against local team Clapham Common Mixed. Despite many a sore head after the celebrations at Richmond 7s the night before (and early morning of), Wanderers pulled back to a 3-2 win, having gone down 0-2 in the first half.
Congratulations Wanderers, we’re looking forward to the re-match this Sunday!
Great day out at the Richmond 7s for Wanderers on Saturday.
The Ladies 6s made the final of the Ladies tournament, finishing 2nd in a very close match to Barnes L2s.
Ladies 7s reached the 3/4 playoff, eventually finishing 4th.
The mixed team also reached the 3/4 playoff which came down to flicks. The mixed side came out on top finishing 3rd.
Congratulations to all teams, the celebrations continued well into the night!
