Memorable Events

Many attendees at the 'UK Academy' match to include the Comm, the Supt the Supt from UK and members of the women's team Tom Robbins, our flyhalf, had his shorts so ripped he couldn't keep them on. When thrown a pair from the sidelines, he promptly changed into them even though he was 15 m from the VIPs and women's team. (Our Comm thought it pretty amusing)

Beat Cayman Island and Royal Roads (per oral history)
