Templars didn't cross swords with Brightlingsea last season but in 2013/14 it was a season of two halves.

Templars visited the seaside early on in the campaign and, with an incredibly strong wind blowing across the pitch kicking duties were near impossible to perform. Despite the game being a second team fixture, Templars found themselves up against a combination of 1st and 2nd VX players due to unavailability. Brightlingsea would dominate the forward play and, with the weather preventing the backs of either team from making any headway, it was this forward domination that proved the deciding factor.

When the Templars hosted in January 2014, Brightlingsea again struggled to field a side, indeed even with the 1st XV helping out only 10 players made the trip inland, and the Templars had to lend their bench for the game to take place. The game was a very one sided affair. Templars started slowly with two tries coming in the first half but then the flood gates opened and a further five were run in, in the second.

This season sees them face the 1st XV who suffered relegation last year, they've beaten both Colchester and Thurston but drawn with Clacton, who the Templars beat, so with the ever changing face of Brightlingsea rugby, who knows which team will be waiting for them when they arrive on Saturday.
