US Portsmouth providing opposition for Portsmouth Command trials

US Portsmouth will provide the opposition for Portsmouth Command trials on Tuesday 12 October 2010 at Burnaby Road, kick off at 1930.


Potential Portsmouth Command players who play for United Services will remain in the US side to face the Command side, which should give both sides a good opportunity to look at as many players as possible.


US views this as a great honour to be asked to play the match but also a good opportunity for the first XV - who are sitting 3rd in Hampshire 1 - to keep the on-field momentum going in a very competitive and tough practise match.


Numbers attending Tuesday and Thursday night training at US are increasing every week, and the club is keen to encourage more players from the navy to join. A number of establishments in the area are already sending groups of players to train with US and introduce them to weekend rugby. US has started a third senior men's team this year to cater for the new players arriving. The US Women's team is now taking shape and all players of all standards welcome.
