Finally, finally Rugby returned to Shire Hall. We welcomed the youngsters of Reading University for a full game, albeit with Covid regulated rules. So no scrums or mauls.

This was Rhys Stewart's 100th Club game - it's been over 15 months since he played his 99th!! This was also Mike Jerstice's 50th Club game. Well done both for achieving these milestones.

Still the result was immaterial - what was important was 40 players got to run around in the June heat for the first time in over a year. Thanks to the young University squad in providing good opposition and making us chase all your speedy players!!
