Welwyn Rugby Club's vets side took on Black Horse in a friendly.


Despite the London & South East Leagues taking a week off there was still plenty of action to be found at Welwyn Rugby Club.

The second and third teams came together to battle Tabard’s second string while the Hobbs Way-based club’s veteran side took on Black Horse from Hertford.

And in front of a decent-sized crowd soaking up the unseasonable warm weather, both matches delivered plenty of entertainment.

The seconds lost 49-40 in a attack-focused match where tackling was optional.

And the first-team coaches will have been impressed with one or two new players who caught the eye, something which can only strengthen the senior squad.

The Vets ended up with a 67-7 win over Black Horse, who travelled with just 13 players.

However, in the spirit of the game, players were loaned to ensure an even 15-a-side contest.

Welwyn’s planned first-team match with Harpenden in the first round of the Herts Presidents’ Tankard was postponed.

They return to league duty on Saturday with a trip to Hammersmith & Fulham.
