Zoo Sports League, Division One
Welcome to the Henley Bulls! This season we are playing in the Zoo Sports League, Division One. For information please click on the button below:
Henley Bulls are the club's 2nd XV and compete in the Shield Division 1 along with 2nd XV teams from The Championship, National 1 &2 clubs. The Bulls play an integral part in sustaining the Hawks at National League level. The Bulls train and prepare alongside the Hawks and play at an equally challenging and competitive environment relative to the 1st XV providing a platform for players with the potential to reach the 1st team level and the ideal pathway for a transition from the junior level of the club to senior rugby. The young players develop alongside their senior club colleagues from the Hawks squad, gaining the experience of both training and playing and have become an valuable resource for the continued success of the Hawks.
The Shield Division 1 includes teams from Jersey, London Scottish and Richmond from the English Championship who often field pedigree players returning from long term injury and this experience brings the best out in players who enjoy the same quality coaching provided to the 1st XV and has seen a crop of Bulls players rise up the ranks over recent seasons.
The Bulls also provide the next challenge for players progressing from the Vikings (the club's 3rd team), and those performing well at local divisional level have an opportunity to test themselves against stiffer opposition with the support they need to make a success of it.
