Uxbridge 34 Harlequins Amateurs 19
In scorching conditions on Saturday, Uxbridge enjoyed a convincing friendly win over higher league Harlequins Amateurs.
Both sides treated the match as a trial game, but for new Uxbridge head coaches Alan Isichei and Dave Farmer, this was the first opportunity for them to see their players in a competitive match.
The game was cut down into 20 minute periods in order to use more substitutes and to reflect on the law changes that have come into force this season.
James Smith and Grant Weingser scored on their debuts for the senior side, no doubt giving them a huge confidence boost as they step from age group rugby into the adult game.
Fly-half Michael Weymouth put in a great performance, scoring a try and picking some excellent running lines throughout the game.
Glen Curtin looked certain to score twice but was judged to have stepped into touch on both occasions.
With the win being followed by a BBQ after the game, the playing and social sides of the club enjoyed a dream start to the season.
This Saturday the 1st team plays Old Abbotstonians at home and the 2nd team plays Old Priorians away.
