The hockey gods have not looked favourably on the Royals men’s division one team so far this season, who have endured three consecutive losses.
Most recently, Harlequins enjoyed their first victory, a two-point win at the expense of the Royals last week, while CSU/Rivcoll and Lake Albert enjoyed the bye.
Round three: Harlequins 5 (J.White, 3, Bradley Watson, 2) defeated Royals 3 (P.O’Donnell, J.O’Donnell, D.Clayton)
Royals will have to perform out of their skin to score their maiden win on Saturday at 2.30pm, as they face undefeated CSU at Jubilee Park.
Harlequins will be on the hunt to back up round three’s strong result when they play Lake Albert on Saturday at 4pm.
