Sat 20 Jan – Club on the road

Blackheath Rugby travels to Darlington this weekend to play DMP, KO 15:00. If you’re thinking of going to watch, Gary’s Guide is below with a few handy details about the ground. And, of course, if you’re not going, don’t forget to go over to X/Twitter, and keep up with all the updates from our Tweeter Extraordinaire!

If you don’t fancy travelling 250+ miles to watch the 1st XV, the Club XV are much nearer to home, playing the Vikings at Richmond.
