* Pool A Promotion at Dec 2019 in Sussex Waterfall
Focused around progressing each individual player; progressing their skill & competency levels and thus contributor to the entire age group squad. We have focussed around the process rather than the outcome as believe this will help each player within whatever rugby journey they take as they go up the age grades and into adult rugby eventually.
