Pulborough Rugby Club’s coaches say valuable lessons were learned after last weekend’s 69-3 mauling on their London leagues debut.

Newly promoted Boro, last season’s Sussex 1 champions, were thrashed at home to Tunbridge Wells on their first ever game in London South East 3.

New coach Clayton Saunders said: “Bit of an eye opener, however the boys now know where they need to be to compete at this level.”
