Verulamians Rugby Club warmed up for their Presidents’ Trophy Final with a stunning 71-30 win over UCS Old Boys.

Last weekend’s win came in the club’s final game of the Herts Middlesex Division One season and leaves Vees in fourth position.

They finish their year off at Allianz Park, the home of Saracens, on Saturday when they face Watford in an 11am kick-off.

And if this result and performance are anything to go by, it all augers well for the final.

Vees handed out a lesson in tenacious, incisive back play and with an all conquering line–out they presented the opposition with a tough ask from the off.
