On Saturday 27th August, The HILLS Reserve (2XV/2AXV) returned to Fort Matilda for a pre-season fixture against Greenock 2nd XV and came back to Hughenden with a good win for Hills. Final score 22 – 33.
A good mix of old wisdom and young fire but brilliant effort from everyone. Special mention for Darryl Elvin with a big front engine; a lot of game time this week; Grant Payne with a 60m first class winger try, pace, power and determination; and Vincent Ané with a great overall performance and a beautiful push over try (#FrenchFlairIsNotDead).
