Head Coach Rob Elloway named a familiar looking side for the trip. With Gra...

Chris gives his take on the opening match against Cullompton.

"I felt like we controlled our own set piece really well and dominated our opposition.

"We had a very mature performance  from our front five which was complimented by a very energetic performance from the back row.

"I thought our half backs directed play very well especially in the first half.

"Our back line looked extremely dangerous at times. It was by no means a walk over.

More information about his performances for the Hakes is scant.  This post is to celebrate that and his selection for the Australian Wallabies.

"Melbourne-born Peter Samu is an explosive ball carrying backrower. With an Am...

The Hakes had appointed Steve Kenward as their new backs coach, taking over from Paul Thirlby, who stood down as head coach at the end of last season.  But former Camborne centre Kenward has now quit his role due to work commitments and family reasons.
