Cobham Rugby

Excellent start to the season for Cobham senior section teams

Strength in depth revealed from early results

Cobham's senior section teams have kicked off their respective 2017/8 campaigns with some great results with four wins and  just one narrow defeat for the first XV last Saturday against local rivals Chobham   Director of Rugby Steve Pope believes he will need the whole squad over the course of a long season for the first XV so was delighted with the back to back wins for the second XV against Thurrock and Chobham.

The  first teams match away to Thurrock was secured 27-33 and is summarised on Thurrock's website
