Rugby World Cup gold for Rishworthians
The Club has won one of Rugby Football Union's top awards for generating legacy participation in the game. Having established a Junior Rugby section in the wake of England's 2003 victory the Club has recently completed a transformational extension to support the recruitment and retention of players through the current World Cup and beyond.
The Club is one of only 18 clubs throughout the country to receive the special RFU Gold Standard Legacy award which aims to reward, recognise and promote clubs that are making the biggest contributions to "generating the greatest participation legacy for rugby union.".
Coinciding with this weekend’s Rugby World Cup games, RFU Directors and representatives of World Rugby will present the award at the Clubhouse Sunday 27th Sept between 10 and 11am.
Come along and join us if you can, then watch the Junior teams in action.
