London Irish Wild Geese have confirmed their preseason playing schedule for August.
There a mix of old and new faces involved as well as a new venue.
Head Coach, John Lacey laid out the upcoming programme.
“Saturday 10th August sees us travelling to Henley Hawks Dry Leas ground for a double header with the Geese and Wanderers in action. Henley finished 4th in last season's National League 2 South and proved difficult opponents. We’re expecting a really tough day.
Thursday 22nd August sees Ruislip RFC visit Hazelwood for an evening kick off. Ruislip have a new coaching set up in place and are ambitious for a successful London 1 North campaign.
Friday 23rd August continues the Bumper Weekend at Hazelwood as touring side Edenderry RFC, who won Leinster Division 2B last season, look set to take on the Geese in a Friday evening game.
Saturday 31st August, we take a short hop across to West London to take on Rosslyn Park Rangers at Trailfinders Sports Club. Park will field a squad side that will include 1st XV players and is sure to be a massive test ahead of our first League game”.
Wild Geese Director of Rugby, Eddie Fraher added “We’re setting a huge challenge for the boys this summer and these fixtures reflect that.
We are aware we have all underperformed for a while now but we are committed to making lasting changes as a club. Testing ourselves against quality opposition is a part of that”.
