Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 5

Sorry to announce that the pub chosen for our post challenge meet for this round, The Prince William Henry is CLOSED on this date due to work on their food lift, therefore we will need to revert back to our usual venue. That is The Bricklayers Arms, Gresse Street near TCR.
