Starting on Friday, the cub will be taking part in Movember to raise money for the Movember UK Foundation.
While the facial hair is often questionable, the cause is not; as the charity work tirelessly to prevent testicular cancer, prostate cancer and break the stigma around men’s mental health.
If you’ve got a few pounds to spare, we’d really appreciate a donation which can be made using the link below;

If this doesn’t make you want to get involved, what will?! Only takes two seconds to sign up and make a huge influence on rapidly growing men’s health crisis.
This weeks match saw Stirling take the victory against the saints, not the result we were looking for, but a lot to work on for the Saints! Here’s the captains match report: The game started with Stirling kicking to Saints, and we inched over the gain line until a knockon resulted in a scrum and Stirling gained possession. Saints were putting in big tackles by the ruck but didn’t drift to the wings quick enough seeing Stirling secure 2 tries in the first 20min as a result of exploiting gaps and fast paced rugby. Stirling unfortunately knocked the ball on a couple of times after this, and the Saints had a strong scrums winning the ball back, but then lost possession in a turnover to Stirling. Stirling had strong runners driving to get over the gain line however the Saints kept pushing back with hard tackles, winning the ball back with Emily Jones managing to get a try in over the line. Saints were held up many times in mauls until they adjusted, getting low in contact to avoid this happening, but it wasn’t enough and Stirling scored again on the wing Saints’ quick off loads and connection led to a team try after a penalty, ultimately scored by Alice Smith after half time the Saints got into a rhythm working our way up the pitch steadily it was turned over and we didn’t drift quick enough to catch their 13 who broke through our line, our 10 /Emily Jones and fullback Robyn Dunne managed to put in a try saving tackle forcing the defence to realign, however the Stirling team were quick to get organized and scored out wide after this shortly after this the ball was turned over and allowed forward Kaitie Golub to make a run more then half way up the pitch before be tackled by Stirling’s 10 and the ball was subsequently turned over in a ruck however the Saints kept pushing forwards, with great line speed we pushed Stirling into their own half we worked at defence for about 5 min before there was a green scrum for being offside, however with a strong drive we managed to win the ball back in the scrum and our Phoebe scored out wide. Saints Tries were scored by: Emily Jones, Alice Smith and Phoebe Drew Player of the Match from Stirling was Kaitie Golub Saints forward of the Match also went to Kaitie Golub and Back of the Match went to Phoebe

A rest week for the saints this week, with no BUCS matches! The saints will be working on skills to help improve their performance through the rest of the season, but it gives the perfect opportunity to celebrate the progress of the team so far! The saints have steadily improved since the beginning of the season, as well as training up the new rugby players, who even did great in their own development day (organised by Saint Development Officers Abby Fryer and Emily Jones!). We are excited looking to the season ahead with our new players and seeing where we end up! #GoSaints#saintssport#womeninsport#thesegirlscan#universityofstandrews#Saints#rugby#studentrugby#womensrugby...
