On Saturday, July 12, Wimbledon RFC once again hosted the Legends 10s Tournament.
London Scottish entered this competition for the first time and were represented on the day by a fine selection of ex players (+35yrs) including, Matt (Matlock) Johnson, Jim Kelly, Simon Devane, Dan Leek, Mike Fraser, Rob Smart, Raynn Bruce, Roman Piotrowski and Stuart (Sly) Sylvester.
The turnout was impressive from other clubs with Wasps, Leicester, Saracens, Gloucester, Cardiff, Bristol, London Irish and London Welsh Legends all present.
Ex-London Scots playing for other teams included Paul Volley and Iain Fullerton, whilst our current Director of Rugby, Mike Friday, and backs coach, Pete Richards were part of the Wasps squad.
Former rugby greats such as Lewis Moody, Henry Paul, Paul Sackey, Robbie Paul, Sam Vesty, Shane Byrne and Dan Scarborough also took part.
The final saw Leicester Tigers facing off against Harlequins and prevailing with a score of 22-0 with tries from John Holtby, Adam Billing, Scott Bemand and Ben Gerry.
It was an extremely well organised event and a great family day out enjoyed by a strong crowd of 3,000.
London Scottish Legends would like to make this an annual event and look forward to support from ex-players keen to be involved and wanting to re-engage with the club.
Amongst other upcoming events, the Legends will be playing a fixture in Edinburgh on Friday, March 20, 2015, before the Scotland v Ireland Six Nations match at Murrayfield on Saturday, March 21.
