Having begun as a very small initiative, the Lions have treaded a path uncharted previously and have been very successful in what they set out to do.
With the main motive to spread the word about rugby to the new generation, especially among the children aged between 4 and 10 years, the old players of rugby set up a union for the rugby players of Thailand and named it the Bangkok Lions Rugby Union or BKK Lions in short.

The Wales international was injured before the start of the season and he hasn’t started a single game for The Exiles in the new season and even if he impresses the selectors for his club, he will need a miracle and a lot of injury crises for the national team to even have a chance of being selected for the national team set up.

Are you getting excited about the up-coming Six Nations tournament?! Here in the clubhouse we are, and we’re hoping to see plenty more of you in the club over the next month or so, especially not that we’ve splashed out on a brand new projector.
The Six Nations kicks off with Scotland vs England on February 4th, and we’re looking forward to smashing the Scots (and taking the mick out of Vaughany 🙂 )
As well as the bigscreen, we’ll have a number of Betfair Rugby Goodies to give away, in various games that our fun-experts have come up with.
It’s that time of year again, as the weather starts to cool and the rains subside, with the rugby season kicking off in earnest!
We’re looking forward to another fantastic season ahead of us – and after last seasons successes, especilly at U-13 level, we’re rightly optimistic for an even better year this time around!
The new and enthusiastic U-11s have been a breath of fresh air (as usual) and have even helped some of the more senior members remember the full rules of the game – Mark only remembered a few of them when he was explianing to the kids exactly what difference being in and out of your own 22 makes!
The senior side kick off their season next week, against the City Bankers, and we’re expecting a good match – though some of the players (Danny!) have returned with a few too many pounds – hopefully the Bankers will be able to help get rid of that – they’re pretty good at losing pounds most of the rest of the time.
