The 1st XV league season gets underway next Saturday with a visit to Datchworth Sports Ground, home of Datchworth RFC.
The London Welsh 1st XV have prepared for the challenge of London 3 North West with away games at Caldicot, Staines and Grasshoppers. The defeat at Caldicot was soon put behind them with wins in the next two matches.
Datchworth’s pre-season pitted them against Midlands 3 team Stockland Park, where they secured a 29-17 win, and then against fellow London 3 North West side Harrow ending up on the wrong side of a 38-27 score line.
Nine wins and a draw were topped up with 16 hints points to earn Datchworth 8th place in the final 2017/18 table, four victories in the final five matches ensuring they ended clear of the relegation zone.
Their heaviest defeat was 71-0 away to Stevenage Town with the biggest winning margin at home to Cheshunt in the penultimate match of the season. Datchworth will be hoping that their end of season form survived the summer break while London Welsh will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in league games to 19 matches.
The London Welsh Supporters Club will be running a coach to this match. For booking and details visit www londonwelshsupportersclub.co.uk.
