Lions XV pre-season training for the 2018-19 season starts on Thursday 5th July 2018 from 7:00pm
"With pre season starting on Tuesday 3rd July, I thought it would be a good idea to keep players and all involved updated on plans for the new season.
Coaching - Simon Daws will carry on as Head Coach with a new addition of Francis Nock (Knocker), who will be joining as Forwards Coach. Knocker brings a great deal of knowledge after playing in national league rugby and is also a qualified level 6 referee.
Players - We are really happy Oli Bache will be rejoining from Bromsgrove. Oli will be able to offer a lot of experience in the back line, is very keen to play and has joined us as a Player Coach. Luke White has also committed to the Lions. Luke is an ex-Harlequins Academy and regular SRFC 1st Team player who cannot commit to national league rugby due to work, so is looking forward to playing with the Lions. As you are well aware we have a strong brotherly bond within the team, the front row Bowser brothers, joined by the Brookes, Williams and Nootts have all committed for the season.
Pre-Season - We will be having a pres-eason game against Walsall on Saturday 18th August @ Home.
With the strong links we have now with the 1st team and ongoing talks with further players, I am very optimistic for this coming season and believe that with full commitment from all players this should be a very successful season.
See You all on the 3rd!
