After a superb start to the season, winning five of their opening six matches, Brighton's 1st XV has been named national Team of the Month.
The OB Pelicans and supporters arrived at East Grinstead on Sunday morning in the driving rain. After a delay to assess the pitches, it was decided that, despite the conditions, the tournament would go ahead. Only 12 teams were available so the draw was re-organised and we played the Marauders first. Despite a try by Ryan Bhimji, we lost to the semi-professional Marauders 10 - 5.
The first Saturday of term, Saturday 1st September saw the Peter Rumney Memorial Match join forces with the Sam Griffiths Foundation to send out an OB rugby side against the formidable Old Wellingtonians RFC.
Old Brightonian and current Harlequins rugby player Jordan Turner-Hall (H. 2002-05) has been selected into the Elite England Rugby Squad ahead of this year's 6 Nations Championship.
