An excellent start to the season for Woking as a club on Saturday, with the first team travelling to Haslemere looking to put a marker down for the rest of the league. Woking certainly meant business scoring straight from the kick off, and in an instant all the pre-season 7's and training looked to pay off. The floodgates opened, the champagne rugby flowed, and Woking cruised to a glorious 67-0 win. Captain Adam Smith said after the game, "Tougher opponents will follow, but what a good start!"

Woking 2's also began their league challenge against Weybridge Vandalls 3's. A similar story was to unravel at Byfleet Rec as Woking started similarly strongly. Impossible to pick out any one performance, the team went on to win 93-0! Club Captain Richard Grady was delighted, " 160-0 as a club for the first two league games of the new season. That certainly puts us on the radar as a force to be reckoned with. I hope it continues!"
