When the new season curtain raises, Bank of England RFC are out to right the wrongs of last year

Wandsworth-based Bank of England RFC kick off the new Herts/Middlesex Division One season on Saturday looking to right the wrongs of last season.
However, they will need to do it without the services of two of their most consistent players after full back Cameron Ewer and winger Johnny Allen moved away from the area.
On the flip side, BoE have recruited a host of new names, including South African winger Jarad McCarroll, Dan Farr (wing) and Tommy Moore (prop).
Skipper Ed Waite said: “We were disappointed with where we finished last season in mid-table.
“Having beaten or held to draws the sides that finished in the top three it showed how much some poor results against sides who finished in the bottom quarter of the league really hurt us and that we needed as a team to play our best rugby for a consistent and extended period of time not just against the best teams.”
He added: “We also realised that we had to build a stronger second XV to keep competition for places strong during the season.
“But I’ll put my neck on the line and say it now, this is the most talented squad we have had at Bank of England for some time.
“If we can forge the same team atmosphere we have had over previous years, then I hope we can prove this in our results and make this a successful year.”
Royston, new arrivals in the league, are the visitors to Bank Lane in Roehampton on Saturday (kick off 3pm).
