BEACH BEST 15 Possibles????? You make the choice and ADD others if you wish! Balmy Beach Rugby Best 15 Ballot sheet Please print! Not much good stuff this week, – Firstly, the very sad part.

Sat. Game. Not a very good effort on our part. Too many errors, 4 yellow cards. Score 47-14 – Seems nuts that rugby is over this early in Sept.- Beach 2’s lose to Saracens at home 17-5
