Dear Players, Vets and friends

London Welsh v Bank of England 

I’m very sorry to confirm this long-awaited game has been cancelled due to the pitch and player safety.

This morning I met Gwyn Williams (Chairman), Pete Lowe (1st XV Manager) and Cia Griffiths (1st XV Snr. Coach) and Sonny Toi Parker (Dir. of Rugby) to review their pitch. Although both Clubs were keen to play the game, we had to agree there was an element of doubt regarding player safety. 

The game will now be played on Saturday 17 March – KO time to be confirmed.

I therefore want to acknowledge and thank the London Welsh team for their support this morning with this difficult decision.

I’ve also passed on our thanks to the London Welsh ground staff for their excellent work over the last few days to help clear the pitch. Several of them have been working nonstop and I’m only sorry their efforts were to no avail.

Best wishes



Bryan Brown
