27th January 2022

It’s no exaggeration to say that the next month or so will define our season. This Saturday we host one of the form teams in the league, with six wins in a row the Red and Blacks recent record is bettered by only one other league side – Stockton RFC!

We need to maintain the form that has seen us win our last 7 games and continue to push on. The fixtures don’t get any easier with a tricky game at home to Sunderland ( conquerors of West last week ), then the big 4 rivals, Percy Park, West Hartlepool, Northern and Westoe. It’s safe to say by the finish of this run we’ll know our league fate.

With experienced players such as Stephen Jones, Scotty Powell and Steve Taylor hitting their best form and young players like Dan Kidd playing the best rugby of their career, we are well placed to push on to the next level

HOWEVER we need YOU – over the next few weeks, we need our home and traveling support behind us, being that extra man, cheering us to a win.

In the past 3 completed seasons, we have won both the under 16 and under 17s County Cups, the strength and numbers in our junior section are the biggest in a generation.

Our future looks very bright. Let’s start that future on Saturday!
