Hendon 2s were without a Merit League match as Barnet Elizabethans could not raise a 2nd XV. Hendon will be awarded a win at 25 points to Nil under the rules of the Merit League.
Cuffley playing in Herts/Middlesex 2 had been scheduled to play their League match away at Pinner and Grammarians but Pinner cried off because they had insufficient front row players thus giving the two Clubs a chance for a friendly fixture.
Even though Hendon put out a true second string, Cuffley , without a second team game turning out, played almost an entire 1st team. Commented Captain Aidan Brennan-Power “My team knew the strength of the opposition and all played really well with excellent play coming from the back line running in two great tries out wide.” Cuffley nevertheless had a much heavier and well drilled set of forwards that denied the home outfit possession to create most of their scores. Further commented Aidan “ the boys really enjoyed playing a strong first team and there are a few who will be pushing for a possible Hendon 1st team position.”
Hendon recruitment continues to grow and hence this Saturday Hendon will offer Players to Saracens Amateur second, who had assisted Hendon at the beginning of the season, to help fulfil a fixture.
