Blackheath 48 Sale FC 29

Posted by

Four tries in the final quarter rescued Blackheath from a 10-point deficit and gave them an emphatic victory and a fitting end to skipper Markus Burcham’s 200th appearance in Club colours. For most of the contest, however, it looked as if the almost-immaculate boot of Chris Johnson would hold sway, the Sale fly-half striking 19 […]

Blackheath Bandits 10 v Old Colfeans IIs 17 By Nicholas Probert Having made it to this point of the season unbeaten and leading their league, the Bandits took the opportunity of a cancelled league fixture to test themselves and arranged a fixture against Old Colfeans seconds. This represented a great opportunity for the Bandits to […]

Blackheath 27 Rosslyn Park 22

Photos courtesy of Claire Jeffrey A controlled, disciplined, performance, and a much-coveted double for Blackheath over their south London rivals, and would-be league leaders. The Club started the contest in the ascendancy and, although a mistake early in the second half put them on the back foot briefly, recovered the initiative to take charge once […]

Match Report: Buccaneers v Old Colfians Vets

Match report by John Hull As regular readers of this website will know, the Buccaneers’ debut game last season was at Old Colfeians, where they came a distant second in a seventy point thrashing.

Richmond 19 Blackheath 8

Posted by

A fierce, physical battle, as you’d expect between these two oldest of rivals. It was a game also where, for the most part, defences were firmly on top, but a contest that ultimately hinged on two moments around the hour-mark. On 55 minutes, following a high tackle, Mark Cooke opted for the long-range attempt at […]

That was the year that was

A lot more happened in 2019 than you would think… As we head into 2020, it is worth looking back on 2019: it was, indeed, a pretty good year at Blackheath Rugby.  The 1stXV were playing exceptionally well last season – at the Christmas break they were second in the table, just one point off […]

Blackheath 28 Canterbury 17

Photos courtesy of Claire Jeffrey Braving the elements, a crowd numbering just under one thousand witnessed a controlled, disciplined performance by Blackheath who ended comfortable winners against luckless Canterbury in a match dominated by the conditions. With the almost-relentless rain in the build-up, and frequent showers throughout, it was inevitable this contest would be a […]

Blackheath 25 Old Elthamians 31

Posted by

A finish befitting a game between two closely matched rivals, with Blackheath recovering from an 18-point deficit, scoring two tries in the final quarter to be within touching distance with seven minutes to play. The game ended with the ball over the opposition goal-line but, adjudged held up, and Elthamians could celebrate victory. For the […]

Darlington Mowden Park 34 Blackheath 17

It’s very hard to compete for 78 minutes against a broadly equally-matched opponent with a man short, but in that sense, the fourteen men (or nineteen if you like) of Blackheath cannot be faulted for the effort and energy they showed in this ultimately disappointing and unsatisfying contest. In the end, however, the weight of […]

On Sunday Club U18’s (with the help of 5 of Club U17’s) travelled to Bromley where they were hoping to continue their unbeaten league run and so they did. It was clear from the kick off that Club were stronger, fitter and more physical from 1 – 15 and with 2 minutes on the clock […]
