31.08.19 Millwall RFC 7 v 24 Kings Cross Steelers
As preparation for the coming league season for both teams, Millwall played King’s Cross Steelers away at East London RFC on Saturday 31st August. Steelers, who only last week were crowned Male Team of the Year at the 2019 Guinness National Rugby Awards, managed a try within the first minute from a charged down kick putting the pressure onto Millwall early. Harry Barrett crossed over the whitewash for Millwall in the second half with a successful conversion by Harry Peters to keep the game closely contested but the end result saw a score of Millwall 7 – 24 King’s Cross Steelers. Millwall Men’s Chair Shekhar Palit noted “It was a bit of a scrappy game, but a great test against strong opposition. A lot to be pleased about as we gear up towards the start of the season.”
The next pre-season match for Millwall Rugby is at home at Hackney Marshes next Saturday 7th September vs. King’s College Hospital. Kick off 3pm.
