Match preview Ventnor RFC 1XV v Overton RFC this Saturday

There’s rugby at Watcombe on Saturday (9th Dec) when Ventnor 1sts play Overton RFC in the Counties 3 Hampshire League. The kick off is at 14:00. The bar will be open from 12:30.

After a heartening return to form last Saturday when the lads went toe-to-toe with Aldershot & Fleet RFC and were extremely unlucky to lose 31 – 26. A hat-trick of tries for Ed Blake and one try for Dan Lythgoe plus conversions from Ben Cooper.

Overton RFC are currently mid-table, 5th, in the Counties 3 Hampshire League 2023-24.
