Up until February 8 the schedule makers had a perfect design as far as keeping our 2-team club together, playing in the same locations. Saturday February 8 would split the sides for the first time this season with the Firsts visiting the UBC Thunderbirds Premier Reserves and the Seconds across town to see the Scribes RFC.
The Surrey Beavers ran head long into a bold new decade with last week’s twin wins over the Bayside Sharks RFC in South Surrey. This week the Beavers would host their first home game and look to remain perfect for the 2020s, when the First Division would welcome Port Alberni Black Sheep RFC and the Second Division would entertain Langley RFC, but nothing is more unpredictable than nature. The sky opened up with a 48 hour torrential flooding rain that closed fields all over the province.
So, we fully turn the page on calendar year 2019 and we take on what 2020 has in the way of challenges going forward. The first challenge took place in the way of a training cancelling snow storm. The weather would right itself and the earth in time for a full week of training prior to our first matches of the new decade.
