GRR: Marin Highlanders
Having toured both London and Bath, the Marin Highlanders are on to their second game of their tour of England and Wales.
With some of the played a little under the weather, this game might be a tough one, with some second-team guys being moved up. But that's the thing about a tour, too—you never know who will be asked to make an impact.
The Marin Highlanders are in England and Wales on a tour organized by Irish Rugby Tours.
The team will play three opponents while also seeing Wales vs France and a Premiership game. This ten-day tour started on a winning note as the Highlanders defeated Cheshunt RFC 27-14.

The Marin Highlanders are on tour in England and Wales, looking to expand some horizons as they go on a trip run by Irish Rugby Tours.
Irish Rugby Tours doesn’t just run tours to Ireland; they take rugby teams o countries all over the world.
The Marin Highlanders looked very good in an opening non-conference game this past weekend in Northern California, shutting out Lamorinda.
The teams played a very tight first half. It's early in the season so all the links weren't quite there offensively, while both teams were happy to ramp up the physicality. Marin ented the break up only 5-0.
On a warm sunny day at Cal Maritime’s rugby complex, the Marauders of Jesuit clashed with the Highlanders of Marin and opened it up in the second half to win 43-0.
Jesuit was able to jump out to a quick lead with Eightman Max Sackett finding a gap off a lineout to dot down. Fullback Mason Phillips, who had a great day with the boot, converted to make it a 7-0 game.
