posted 8 Jan 2012, 05:25 by Web Admin
Rockets Men's NVL team reached the quarter finals of the National Shield Cup yesterday, beating Division 1 side Richmond in an epic 5 set battle. After trading sets throughout the match, Rockets finally claimed it in the 5th, 15-10. The quarter final is set for the 4th February 2012, again away, again against another Division 1 side Cambridge.
Although they beat non-league Harrogate fairly convincingly in yesterday's Round 2 game, Cambridge are currently struggling at one spot off bottom in NVL Division 1. Having beaten Richmond, who sit 4 places above them in Division 1, Rockets should be confident of another upset! The semi final will be at home, so good luck to the squad.... it would be nice to have a Shield semi-final at home!
