The team at K J Smith Solicitors, joined by family and friends attended the new clubhouse at Henley RFC on Saturday 3rd December to see their team put 1 point on a fast and well drilled London Irish development squad in a nail biting 25 – 24 win.
After a strong start the Hawks gave the momentum of the game back to London Irish following a period of handling errors in the cold conditions. A try in the last minute however gave the Hawks the much needed win. A great day was had by all, being made even more special due to the attendance of a team from the RBS 6 Nations who brought the 6 Nations Trophy to the Hawks clubhouse for the day. Geoff Watts, General Manager at K J Smith Solicitors had donated £500 at a Sports Relief Charity event at Twickenham earlier in the year, choosing the Hawks game as the perfect opportunity to showcase the Trophy.
