Operating as usual


A fantastic celebration yesterday.

Leggett vs Legate 2022. The 20th game.

A new format for the game was established this year which saw Colts, Seniors, Veterans and Super-Vets (Walking Rugby) all able to play against each other in some form of competition.

The "tradtional" full 15s fixture saw the Fawley Blues take the win against the Fawley Reds.

A big thanks for Terry and Rhys from Hampshire Rugby Football Union Referees who came down to officiate.

It was also a great opportunity for former players to see the long-awaited Club House development.

Current Club Captain Daniel Leggett kept the tradition alive of always having at least one Leggett or Legate on the pitch at all times with Tom Leggett flying in from Florida and being thrown some boots and a shirt and told to play.

It was also great to see family members playing alongside or against each other with the Tonu's and the Friend's having Father and Son combinations on the pitch.

A massive thanks to Taff, Petina, Sian and Julie for putting in all the behind the scenes work to bring the day about.

The below article "Death of a Hero" from the Daily Echo in 2002 tells Pete's story in greater detail.



Wayne is suffering but so proud that he got “Levelled “
by one of the best back row player’s this club has ever had.

Following on from Tony Sinfield "Where are they now" post the other week, we're going to continue it.

If you recognise them, tag them.

The "Operation Clubhouse" team are making exceptional progress. It would be good to see any all former players to be there for the grand opening.


Your under 15's team to face New Forest neighbours Ellingham & Ringwood RFC. Both teams are very closely matched so it's going to be a hell of a game to watch with both sides needing wins, tries and bonus points for a competitive league position.

KO: 1100hrs
When: Sunday 11th December
Venue: Fawley RFC, Newlands Park.


It's not rugby related but it's an important Waterside christmas tradition.

We're not sure, but we think it's been going on longer than Paul Bisgrove has been wearing the Fawley colours - that's saying something.


Away against top of the league Romsey was always going to be a tough fixture for Fawley Under 15's and with a few lads missing from last week's victory against Basingstoke due to family commitments or injury Fawley faced a larger opposition squad with a small bench. But, the lads turned up and set their sights on fighting for the top place in the league.

The game opened with Fawley starting strong and occupying the opposition 22 for the majority of the opening half. Romsey worked hard and aggressively in defence and their strong tight were able to fight against the hard running efforts of Fawley and their quick actions to get underneath openside flanker Dylan meant they held up Fawley's first attempt at scoring.

Undeterred Fawley set well for the goal line drop out and some excellent handling work sent number 8 Joey into space allowing him to hurtle his 100kg frame over the try line with the pace of a winger.

With a flash of a response on the restart the backs worked hard to gain ground and counter attack. Excellent hands and quick ruck player from scrum half Tom G meant that outside centre Reece was able to run yet another to try to add to his record, calmly converted to 7 points by Oli.

Fawley collected the restart and some hard running by the back 3 with the back row and half backs working in support meant that Fawley were able to capitalise on their dominance in the 22 and loosehead prop Alfie ran one of his (what are fast becoming trademark) hard and aggressive lines and fought his way to his second try in as many weeks. Fly Half Oli gained his composure and slotted the conversion to add to his points tally which currently sees him as the leading points scorer across the whole club.

Undeterred and with some motivation from the coaching Romsey were now awake and keen to show Fawley and their supporters why they were top of the league. Their 10 and 7 battled their way up the centre and flanks and pushed Fawley into a period of intense defence. Tackling errors by Fawley meant that Romsey capitalised on the penalty and secured their first score of game. They then again repeated this and took advantage of the "coach killer" penalties that Fawley gave away.

Half time and fresh faces were brought on to the park seeing Toby take the 10 spot for the first time this season. Romney's half time oranges clearly had their intended effect and they played some fantastic and expansive rugby allowing their openside to exploit the gaps out wide and run in some incredible tries with an immense pace that was unmatched by the Fawley backs ... and that's saying something as the Fawley back line is full of exceptionally quick players.

The battle resumed with both sets of forwards having to work hard through plenty of scrum and mine out set pieces. Fawley looked like they were set to score off the back of a brilliant 15 metre driving maul but handling errors on the break were pounced on by Romsey and they set to bring the draw bridge up across their goal line.

Fawley continued valiantly and with Oli back in the pivot positon a well rehearsed set move off of a penalty saw Oli put up a beauty of a cross field kick to Toby - now at 15 - who collected the ball with brilliance and calmness and scored. Oli converting brought the score line to 24-29 in favour of Romsey and with thier no more time on the clock the final whistle was blown.

A tough day away at Romsey's incredible new set up at Ganger Farm but smiles on faces and players in good humour were able to laugh and joke with each other and the opposition. Romsey provided some great post match entertainment and banter.

Tries: Joey; Reece; Alfie; Toby
Conversions: Oli

Man of the Match (voted by opposition): Joey - No8.
Man of the Match (voted by Fawley Captain and Vice-Captain): Sonny - Fullback/Wing.


Your Under 15's team to face top of the league Romsey tomorrow at Ganger Farm.


Every coach loves getting messages at 2145hrs on a Saturday night asking if there's a spare gum shield, tape, spare studs and directions to the game... but that's age grade rugby.

Cars packed up with barely awake teenagers and coffee-fuelled parents and the trip to Basingstoke was made by 20 players from Fawley to face an imposing squad of 36.

The teams lined up on the main pitch of Basingstoke RFC with spectators given the luxury of dry seats and shelter in the stands which added to the gravitas of the match.

Basingstoke opened with a strong starting XV and kept Fawley in their own half for the opening portion of the first half. This forced Fawley to be aggressive in defence and work on their well rehearsed tactics at the breakdown and in the defensive line. This remained the theme of the half with so much rugby played between the teams 22 lines. A half time score of 10-7 in favour of Basingstoke. Outside Centre Reece scoring the first try off the back of a great run and well timed pass by fullback Toby releasing him into space and Fly Half Oli converting.

The second half opened with an instant try from the kick off by number 12 Jerry using his full Fijian flair to side step and confuse the opposition down the blindside wing and then making a sympathetic touch down between the posts.

An intense period of brutal, but spectator-pleasing, rugby ensued with both sets of forwards taking lumps out of each other. Fly Half Oli was able to fight through players and strike a loose ball and use his footballing skills to put together two kicks and secure the ball for his first try of the season (adding to his points tally from penalties and conversion as well as giving him a try rather than a try assist).

Off the back of a fantastic lineout leap and quick ball off the top by flanker Dylan, scrum half Harley was able to put in a perfect pass to awaiting flanker Jake who put his head down and used his Gridiron background the push aside defenders and secure his first score of the season.

The play continued with Basingstoke working well up the field and looking likely to release their quick back line out wide. But play returned to the 22 off the boot of Oli and an attempted clearance kick was secure by Loosehead Alfie who motored head down straight over the try line for his first Fawley try which was celebrated with immense gusto by players and coaches.

Some experiments from the coaching team saw Reece move from 13 into the pack at blindside flanker, a hard run side stepping a defender and then drawing contact and a spectacular back door offload whilst going to ground was secured by winger Alex S who rocketed towards the goal line for his first Fawley try since joining the team. Joey, normally number 8, played in the front row today and with some gentle persuasion he was able to convince Oli to allow him take up the kicking duties and he slotted his first ever conversion attempt. Every rugby player loves it when a prop kicks.

A massive well done to all the players from both squads and a huge thanks to Basingstoke for giving the lads a fantastic matchday experience. The 2021/22 season saw the teams face each other twice and both teams getting a 50 points win a piece. To see the development and progress of all the players is testament to the coaching and efforts by all parents, players and club volunteers and only serves to develop the high standard of age grade rugby across Hampshire.

🏉Man of the Match for Fawley (voted by opposition) was Jerry.

🏉Captain's Man of the Match (voted by James H and Tom S of Fawley) was Jake.

🏉Tries: Jerry (×2); Jake; Alfie; Oli; Alex S
