Thursday night sees the Wild Geese take on Ruislip RFC at Hazelwood.

Head Coach John Lacey has announced the team to take on his former club. On selection, he commented.

"The coaching team were really happy with large elements of our first game against Henley. We matched them up front in the set piece and came strong as the game wore on. Our fitness was much improved and we can take some confidence from that.

We've simplified our defence over the summer and that worked well. Our attack is moving in the right direction, but needs sharpening up a bit.

Having two games this week means we'll been able to look at everyone available in the squad, across both nights. We'll have a really good base to choose a strong side to face Rosslyn Park II on the 31st August.

Ruislip had a good win last week and will be confident having played two games already. We won't underestimate them and will have to be on top of game from the start. They have a new coaching team in place and we're looking forward to what will undoubtedly be a tough test".

Kick off is at 19:30 and we hope to see as many of you as possible cheering on the boys.
