Richmond v London Scottish Saturday 18th March KO 2.30pm
Due to London Welsh’s sad demise the FIRST XV do not then have a game until the home game against London Scottish on Saturday March 18thKO 2.30pm
This game will undoubtedly be the game of the season as the Scots will be intent on avenging their defeat in November – so please do make sure you are there as we need that Richmond chant going and every supporter’s voice cheering our lads on as it makes a huge difference to them.
The pre-match lunch is already a sell out so if you think you have booked in please do confirm with me. Due to the size of the lunch and the earlier KO time please note that timings are 12pm for 12.15pm with pre-lunch drinks in the Sports Bar

Seb Adeniran – Olule Memorial Match – Harlequins v Leicester Tigers Fri 24th February KO 7.45pm
You will of course remember the tragic death last May in a car accident of Seb AO the First XV prop on loan from Quins who played such a key role in our promotion to the Championship and became such a popular member of the team both amongst the players and the supporters.
Quins are making their match next Friday evening against Leicester Tigers a Memorial Match to remember Seb who had been a member of their academy from a young age - and to raise money for his Charitable Fund which has been set up in his memory to support boys who would not normally be able to enjoy the academic and sporting opportunities he enjoyed.
This Fund is supported by us at Richmond and you can find further details and how to donate by clicking here
The match will start with a minutes applause for Seb and if you would like to come along and join in then tickets can be purchased through the Quins ticket office, 020 8410 6000, or online at www.quins.co.uk clicking through to ticketing.
