A season of real ups and downs for the 2nd XV of Thamesians. With a lot of new faces coming in there was a real task in the season to get everyone playing on the same page. To finish just out of the play-offs this year is a bitter pill to swallow, but one that is need for this developing group to grow even more, as aspirations of top of league are starting to be dreamt of after the last leage game vs Chiswick. I'm lucky to have been part of some cracking games of rugby including a double win over Quintin, and wins against Old Street, Hayes and Hackney. Thanks to all the new lads who have invested their Saturdays like Stuart Egerton, both Lee's, Sam White and Sam Roberts, Connor McCarron, Dan Lopez, Bondy, Joe Bright, Louis, Simeon, Yanis, Luke Simpson, Zac Healy, Dan Till, Matt Lally, Aedan, Harvey, Ethan Coyne and Joe Kerrigan. Hopefully you all stay with this family, and next season can be something great.
A huge thanks to the dependable faces who have stuck around for yet another season with the club. Your efforts have not got unnoticed. Stevie Allen, George Russell, Jay, Kenny, Jacko, Dom Worley, Will Massey, Joe Cumberbatch, Slash, Grant, Danny Watts, Paolo, Hambo, Tristan, Dan Jones.
A special mention must go to Choc. Who has been with the 2s all season, taking warm ups and a real help through my first season as captain.
Support has gone a long way with both sides, and clearly makes us play better when eyes are on us. Thanks to all the Thamesians family for coming down to watch us play.
Its not been perfect or gone the way I would have wanted, but boy have I loved every second of it this season! Here's to cracking year of rugby and even better ones in the future!
