In a fantastic day for the future of rugby a combined nine Colts made the transition to senior rugby at Malvern v Worcester. Malvern fielded six Colts and Worcester fielded three. Many of the boys have represented their clubs since under 6 age grade, a fantastic achievement for both clubs.
The colts certainly made an impact on the game with Ben Gobert being awarded Man of the Match for Malvern and George Cunliffe taking Man of the Match for Worcester, after scoring Worcester’s only try.
Both teams also fielded father a son partnership, a true reflection of the rugby family ethos. Mark Gobert and Ben Gobert representing Malvern and Tim Cunliffe and George Cunliffe representing Worcester.
After the game Chris Gore, Worcester Coach, presented WRFC Club ties to our Colts, Ben Amos, Jamie Harris and George Cunliffe to welcome them to the senior teams – no more post match polos lads.
Some of boys who are not going to university are looking forwards to a full time move to senior rugby next season. The boys going to University will be welcomed back to play and train with us during university vacations and will be offer the complementary University membership.
All will be invited to play in the Under 23 fixtures, hopefully we'll have two lined up over easter, details to be confirmed soon.
