Welcome to King's 1XV 2019-20

The success of the 1XV in 2018-19 has been well documented here and in the wider rugby media. The abridged version is that the side won London 2SW with a perfect record of 22 victories, each one with a try bonus point, which meant King's 1XV was the first in the country to promoted as champions of their league. As a result of this success the side was promoted to London 1 South, Level 6 of the RFU pyramid - the highest level at which the club has competed since the introduction of the leagues in the late 1990s.

Following on from their promotion there will be lots of new opposition for King's players and supporters to familiarise themselves. These include Thurrock, Medway, Beckenham, Dartfordians, Havant, Westcombe Park, Horsham, HAC and Belsize Park. Slightly more familiar are Chichester, Camberley, Cobham and London Cornish - all of whom having played at Level 7 in the not so distant past.

The new season will also see a new captain at the helm as George Taylor succeeds Tom Dugarin. The season will be a busy one with 26 league games to navigate, as well as travel across 7 counties, but the side is excited by the opportunity to test itself at the level and to build on last season's remarkable exploits.

If you are new to the area having graduated from university or relocated with a new job, or perhaps you just fancy a new challenge and are keen to test yourself at a good level of amateur rugby then please get in touch through the website or with our Club Manager (paddy@kingsrugby.org.uk) direct. Mindful of the pressures on our players' time, King's train just once a week - on Tuesday at 1930 with physio available and the offer of hot food afterwards.
