The dogs of war: Canterbury’s Royce Cadman, Matt Corker and Louis Whetton

“Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war”

Canterbury Rugby Club face London Irish Wild Geese at the Marine Travel Ground, Merton Lane, on Saturday.

The first XV come into the game after an extraordinary 30-30 draw with Henley Hawks a fortnight ago.

Fans will be hoping the club can finish strongly and will be reprising their old battle cry: “Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war.”

David Sharma, owner of Howfield Manor Hotel at Chartham Hatch, is among the diehards who turn up for most matches.

He said: “So it wasn’t the Rubicon that Canterbury crossed last time out in battle against Henley, but the Thames and it won’t be one of Shakespeare’s character who shouted ‘Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of War’, but the loyal black and amber army of supporters.

“This weekend we will once again cry havoc and let slip Royce Cadman, Matt Corker and Louis Whetton as they defend the lane and claim a famous victory.”

Kick off is at 3pm.
