I fully understand players quitting rugby and seeking full time employment . Most clubs pay a pittance in relation to the committment and dedication that it takes to play level two.

The risk / reward just does not add up. I am aware of so many players who have been unfortunate enough to get injuries that force them to stop playing. The playing window period is so short and at the end of that window there are so few sport related employment opportunities.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

...and Craig Hampson re-signs for Ealing as expected. No clue why we signed a third 9 earlier this week, one who wants more game time.

Best fly-half I’ve seen at Ealing, by a long way.
Speak softly, but carry a big stick.

Agreed. I was amazed that we almost let him get away to Pirates a couple years ago.

With the lack of funding in Lvl 2 and lower, maybe the RFU will get their way and end up with just the Premiership, that’ll make them happy, all the money and none of the hassle.

I want you all to line up in a circle and pair up in three's alphabetically by height.

Coaching update ahead of the 2021/22 season.


Richmond Rugby has today confirmed it has made the decision to not renew the contract of Attack Coach Mark Matzopoulos ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Director of Rugby Steve Hill, said: “Matzy has been an integral part of Richmond’s success since I joined the club in 2010. His coaching enabled the Men’s First XV to move from the bottom of National 2 South to the giddy heights of finishing ninth in the Championship in 2017/18. Mark has contributed hugely to Richmond in his time with us and for that we are extremely grateful.

On behalf of everyone at the club we wish Mark and his family all the best for the future and thank him for 14 fantastic seasons at Richmond.”

Ealing sign centre James Little from Mitre 10 outfit North Harbour Rugby. An interesting signing in that he is 23, but already has 4 years of professional rugby under his belt in New Zealand. It will be interesting to see what he can bring to the club at a quite packed position.

It's raining Kiwis. Ealing also signs 20 year old Kiwi prop Jimmy Roots also from North Harbour Rugby in the Mitre 10. He will join in November. 188cm, and 126kg. Big load.
