Another centre signed up for his third season at the club is Lance Corporal Ravai Fatiaki. Ravai a serving solder in the Royal Signals is renowned for his hard running and excellent skill on the ball. With 32 appearances under his belt for Birmingham Moseley and a career that has included the British Army, Premiership and Fijian International experience we are sure he will again be a big influence in midfield.

A player with pace to burn donning the red and black jersey again next season is winger Aquile Smith. Since joining from Hartpury at the start of last season Aquile has ensured his name is one of the first on the team sheet making 23 appearances during the shortened 25 match season and scored 11 tries, including a brace of hat tricks against Hull and Bishops Stortford. His early form last season saw him pick up the RFU Level 3&4 player of the month award for September. We look forward to him lighting up the touch line again this season.
