The club are celebrating their 90th anniversary this season and marked the milestone in the autumn with a special match against Portsmouth - the first club they played after their formation in 1926.

It was a day for the whole rugby community to come together as juniors, seniors and veterans all got time on the Oaklands Park pitch and past and present players swapped stories of heroics on the field.

During the day we caught up with the club’s Declan Hutchings as the action unfolded behind him.
