Buoyed by their impressive performance the previous week Woking travelled to Haslemere for a league and cup double header.

Sporting their new gold and blue away kit Woking kicked off in perfect conditions for rugby.
Woking returned to action after an extended break due to Christmas and the impact of Covid when they hosted Old Hamptonians RFC at Byfleet Rec. When the sides met earlier in the season the visitors ran out 124-19 winners when Woking were only able to field 13 players against a very strong Old Hamptonians side. However, last Saturday’s encounter was to be a much different with Woking being able to field a strong starting 15 and bench.

Woking chairman Andy Jones is looking ahead to new challenges as the Surrey Four outfit battle back from near extinction. As a tribute to club legend Richard Grady – who died in December 2019 – Jones took on the role last summer.

Well they do and they are enjoying their most successful period in the history of the sport.Recently, the team won the European Championship D trophy in Turkey, and are now through to the Rugby League World Cup Qualification Stage for 2025.
In previous weeks Woking have been guilty of starting slowly, allowing their opponents to get on the front foot and build a lead. Away to Mitcham & Carshalton that wasn’t the case as Woking started positively with a focus not seen in previous weeks. Playing into a strong wind the visitors took the game to their hosts as forwards and backs combined to put their opponents on the back foot.
