Saturday was a mixed afternoon for the Dogs squads, with the Whippets rattling up a half century of points as they defeated a young Henley U20’s side by 52 points to 5, whilst the Greyhounds lost to an experienced Barnes 2nd XV by 31 points to 22.
Both squads still have plenty to work on in training this week as they look forward to welcoming Bath Freshers and the Kew Occasionals to Iffley Rd next Saturday afternoon.
