Tiger Cubs thoroughly bummed

The J.P. Morgan 7s series continued in usual fashion for Tigers as they once again failed to win a match succumbing to Saints in a closely fought encounter 26-24 before the two biggest defeats in the series history.  Beating our record from last year we lost 50-5 against Sale before London Welsh heaped more humiliation on the Tiger Cubs beating them 52-5.

Commendable performances: Joe "Co" Cain, Tom Hudson and Alex Lewington.
Waste of space: Alex Wooldridge, thanks for trying but fuck off and never darken my door again.

Pasqualle's Dunn In as Jones gets a Luke in.

A injury to Pasqualle Dunn has forced him out of tonight's J.P. Morgan 7s.  He is replaced by Luke Jones.

Jones is a winger from Guernsey, signing to the academy this summer after a season of mens rugby.
