August Try of the Month CompThanks to all that voted, Rowan Whitton's try v Leith won with 49% of the vote with Phil Allanson's a very close second.Started with a kick off receipt and powerful break by Graham Doig, great support from Dougie Sutherland then on to Rowan. A neat back and forth between Captain Scott Simpson and Rowan resulted in the one handed slam down by the rampant 2nd Row. No doubt spurred on by a pep talk by the coach!Well done to all involved in this try and the other tries. Look out for September's selection.

Tries from the Forrester Game. Hopefully just a taster of the brand of rugby we hope to show this year with an emphasis of allowing players to showcase their skills while also creating a culture of individual and team responsibilities. There will be a continued theme of development for players of all experience with coaches providing collective and one-on-one feedback via a new analysis tool. The club will also look to celebrate team and individual success throughout the season and would welcome any members, supporters and locals to be part of that celebration.
