Old Elthamians vs Wild Geese: Preview

by | Oct 14, 2016 | Senior Rugby, Wild Geese

On Saturday coming, 15th October, the Wild Geese face a very tough task when they meet Old Elthamians, in Bromley, in the National 2 South league; kick-off is at 2.30 pm. Old Elthamians achieved a great result last Saturday when they defeated Taunton Titans 44-14, and in Taunton at that. That leaves them lying 2nd in the league table, with 6 wins from 6 matches played; the only difference between them and Chinnor is a single bonus point. They are an open club nowadays, being originally based on old boys of Eltham College.

The Wild Geese team to face them again shows some changes from last Saturday. Matt Killeen gets a deserved call-up to the starting XV on the right wing, after his two-try performance off the bench last Saturday. The team is: K O’Sullivan, J Barker, E Fraher; R Byfield, A Evans; H Rowland, S Moore (Capt.), D Livett; D G Anderson, P Hodgkinson; G Owen, S Cunningham, I Bradshaw, M Killeen; B Kitching. Replacements: T McDonough, A Tate, O Clements, A Field, T Barker.
