Statistics

In the 2001 season the side saw many improvements with another surge of players coming back from retirements and injuries. A new head coach, Nick Cursley, was also appointed. He was last with the team in 1998 as the teams Offensive Coordinator, when he led the team to have the top rated passing attack in division 2 of the BSL, he also had the top rated passer in that division that year and three receivers in the top 10.

The season was dissapointing on the pitch, finishing with a 1-7 record, but a great success off the pitch. The Exiles were now in a position foreign to them, with a new stronger management structure, they had renewed hope for following year, and after the improvements of 2001 they really had something to build upon, and were determined to not let it slip through their fingers again.

A disappointing year which had shown promise in pre-season, although we did greatly improve on the 2000 season, halving our points conceded, and scoring 21 points of our own.

The season was mainly spoiled by the two awarded games which overshadowed the season somewhat, we had to concede the Devils game due to the referees not turning up, which according to league rules is the fault of the home team (!), and the on-off saga of the second Pumas fixture was especially annoying, being re-arranged and called off 3 times before the League awarded us the game.
