Step into the unknown at Herts 7s 2009

The draw for the 2009 Herts 7s has thrown up some fascinating opposition for both our U15 and U18 teams.

For almost all of the U15s this will be a new experience - in fact none of them will ever have been in a competition as big as this before. Twenty teams will play in four groups of five - and we have drawn a combination of teams with a national reputation (such as Worcester), relative novices (Old Northamptonians) and county combinations (Norfolk and Berkshire). It'll be challenging - but an experience which will make all of our U15s better players, and well prepared for next season.

The U18s will also face something new - because we have never played any of the teams we have drawn before! Oakmedians, Ealing and Old Northamptonians are all relatively unknown quantities (though we did at least see ONs play at Gloucester). However the target must be to get at least as far this year as last, and given a full squad there is no reason why we couldn't do that.
