Wild Geese v Worthing: Preview

The Wild Geese start a new sequence of 6 matches, called SOS i.e. “save our season”, on Saturday coming, 11th March, when they play Worthing at Hazelwood in the RFU National League 2 South, with a confirmed kick-off time of 3.00 pm. This is the start of the defining last 6 league fixtures and the Wild Geese commence it in the relegation zone. Worthing were in the zone until their good win versus Taunton Titans last weekend, whereas the Wild Geese had seemed to be comfortably clear of the threat of relegation until last weekend’s hammering by Bishop’s Stortford, allied to the fact that all teams around us had better results than we had.

Preview from John S Hunter

The import of this particular game cannot be over-estimated and your loyal support at Hazelwood will not just be very welcome but is needed. The recovery from injury of our leading try-scorer (by a country mile) George Owen could be just the boost both team and supporters need.

The probable Wild Geese team will be: K O’Sullivan, K Gibson, C Connor; C Haggett, S Moore (Capt.); H Rowland, T Bush, J Touma; D Grant-Anderson, B Kitching; G Owen, S Cunningham, B Meeson,  M Killeen; O Turner  The likely replacements will be E Fraher, M Bunn, G Drye, T Barker, L Flynn & D Livett.
