“Many had their first taste of rugby then and we lost in the final of the Plate competition.
“Still that was an achievement of us as we continue look of areas of growth in the sport.
“We are glad to be getting more game time with the help of Marist Seahawks and the Qauia team and we now have a few experienced players joining the side.

“They will go out there and give it their all. Giving their best is all that matters.”
