On Sunday 8th January 2017 a new era began at TD with our first ever U-15 girls' match. We played top team, good friends and neighbours Cobham and did very really well, losing 3 tries to 8, but never having played 15-a-side before it was a wonderful and happy performance with smiles all round.

Last Sunday, the 31st August, the Old Cranleighans won the Shield at the Cronk-Cunis Under-21 Public Schools tournament.

We need some articles on subjects connected with Surrey rugby, rugby at the Club, 2nd and B 15 teams, junior rugby - and anything else relevant. Please do what you can to help out here.
You may have noticed that we have various sets of rules, including the Laws of Rugby and so on, on the Resources page. We thought this material would be useful as it's hard to find otherwise - especially with the RFU website in the state it's in. However, converting this material in bulk for web publishing is not a five-minute job, and the first cut & paste result is often gibberish. If anyone can help with this task, please let the webmaster know. All you need to do is look through the pages and correct errors by reference to the original document (probably a PDF).
We have some more of this material to go up, but there isn't much point till the first lot is fully sorted. All help gratefully received.
