"Oh no we've got Millwall next!" Saracens Touch Captain

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together for Millwall’s Touch
team, The Intangibles.

I can’t think of a better start to the summer than to send our more,
ahem, experienced players to represent us in a Tournament at Allianz
Park. Wait a minute, I can think of a better way to start the summer.
And that is to send them to a Tournament to Allianz Park and for them
to win the bloody thing.

Note to Committee, with the addition of the Touch team to Millwall,
we’re going to need a bigger Trophy Cabinet.

Anyway, ably led by the Silver Fox himself, Mr James Wakefield, our 11
players creaked and limped all the way to Hendon (which when you’re
their age is the teenage equivalent of Hawaii) and then, as if by
magic, transformed themselves into Touch players floating over the 4G
surface used by Saracens RFC. Nandana Thomas, in particular, performed
so magically, that she won the Ladies MVP for the tournament.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, this is just the start and
I for one will be hugely disappointed if we finish the summer without
additional silverware. Obviously, it’s time for the younger brigade,
(you know anyone under 35) to take over and where better to start than
next Wednesday at Surrey Quays, where we’ll be playing our first two
friendly, grading games.

I’d also like to remind everyone that we’ll be playing Touch on
Sundays at 13:00, Mondays at 19:00 and Thursdays at 19:00 on Millwall
Park throughout the summer.

Until then, once more, stand up and put your hands together for;
