The Team’s Efforts

Rob Cruikshanks, Head Coach, is pleased with the teams’ efforts so far. “This season so far has seen 40 players represent the club, of which 10 are playing their 1st season with the Stags. Consistency in sport is huge and understanding that a ¼ of the players representing the club have never done so before will mean that generating that consistency and bond between players will offer its difficulties. Seeing that so many players have joined is a credit to all of those in the club who as mentioned, have enforced, and encouraged amongst others that we are a friendly and welcoming club. As Head Coach and in agreement from other coaches it is my prerogative to ensure that all players are welcomed and that all those who step over the notorious white line, play with enjoyment and pride. From my own observations and feedback this is evident and its these building blocks that are very important to delivering top class performances week after week” 

“Despite new players, building a bond and moving locations we have been playing well. With 9 played (including pre-season), we have won 4 and lost 5 and averaging just under 3 tries a game. We have a total points difference of -12 which would suggest that we are having extremely close games which is a great advert for the league as all games have been an exhibition of hard fought, entertaining, and enjoyable rugby. Going forward to the rest of the season we will look to improve on the statistics already generated. With 7 games left, plus whatever the Hampshire Village Cup offers us, we have plenty of opportunity to do so!”

“Finally, from myself and on behalf of all Hook and Odiham RFC members I would like to thank the huge support from spectators that we receive. Its great to see so many faces down at Papermill Avenue and I hope to see more of you as the season continues.”
