2016 Jr. Season

2016 looked to be a tough season with some well established teams in our division. However the Juniors managed to progress to the U19 Plate final with a 3-3 record overall. In the post-season, the Caesars were able to shutout the infamous London Blitz @ London by 12-0. After the triumph in the capital, the team travelled to South Leeds Stadium to face the Scottish side – the Highland Wildcats. After a well contested game, unfortunately the Caesars fell short to the Wildcats 22-14.
