Sometime in the annals of history, as the Raiders were pillaging their way through the National Leagues of Hong Kong rugby, there was a realization that they were simply too many in number. A decision was made that a split was required so that the teams could put their stamp across the many levels of community rugby.
Thus it was decreed that Raiders would cleave in half, forging two separate but similar paths. And so in January 2016, Marauders stood side by side with Raiders, prepared to set off from the shores of comfort achieved by numbers, so that they could blaze their own route to glory.
As the Marauders have aged, they have seen campaigns slow to materialize, but there is no doubt that these men are at their best when there is glory and silverware on the line. January to March, when the weather cools and the chill bites, it is their season of attack and strong performances in the Finals have been their hallmark.
When the matches are done, these glorious warriors head back to their community halls to feed and drink heartily, while celebrating battles fought hard and often won. For it is on the field that brotherhood is created, but at the bar that it is sealed. And it is here that names like Sea School Kenny, Fan and Whitmell will ring through eternity.
Ride with us, if marauding is your cup of tea.
