A most enjoyable tour was had with more than 30 Renegades crossing the Irish Sea to the fair city of Cork. An excellent time was had by all and a most entertaining game of rugby was played with a selection of players from Dolphin RFC.

Our only silverware of the season was won at the Cottenham Festival Day organised by the Parish Council. We competed for the inter-sports challenge cup against teams from the Netball, Cricket and Football Clubs. The Renegades reigned supreme taking the much-coveted trophy back to the Cottenham Club.
