2021/22 Romans Update

In order for the Romans to play local rugby, we’re excited to announce the Romans will play in Herts Middx Merit 1, rather than the national Zoo Leagues. Giving us great local competition against Bishop’s Stortford, Harpenden, Fullerians, Hertford, Tring and Ampthill.

All round better for players, club and for 1XV players selected for the Romans – it gives more weekend time through less travel to away games, and time to return to the club for socials with other team mates.

This season also sees changes in the management of the Romans, as we say huge thanks and best wishes to Ashleigh Stevenson-Leigh and James Steventon, and welcome Old Albanian playing legend Eddie Panting as Head Coach of the Romans, with Phil Brunt as forwards coach. Both have been working tirelessly with our 1XV coaching team in pre-season and friendlies to join-up playing ethos, training and player development.

So far this is working very well after strong pre-season performances against Hemel Camelot 1XV, and I echo the words of our Club Captain, that our One Club ethos is alive and well.

The team will be led on matchday by new captain Euan McGonagle and vice-captain Tom Rush, we wish our Scottish & Welsh combo the very best for the season on the pitch and in embedding their culture and standards off the pitch.

The Romans league games help our wider 1XV squad to keep a competitive edge and fitness when not selected for the 1XV, and offers natural progression for our aspiring OA U18s players to experience senior rugby and culture, which has proved a very successful programme over the past few years leading to 1XV representations for many players.

Have a great season Romans
