JJ Raven receiving his Man of the Match award after the Holt game. He borrowed Andy Ball's jacket, he has more taste than to own one!


Farewell Campo and thanks for everything

The Holt game was the last for our friend from Goulburn Australia, Michael Campton-Smith. He has now returned to the land of the chemical beer and dangerous wildlife. We have delayed thanking him and bidding him a fond farewell as his return home was to be a surprise for his Mother, thereby depriving her of time to put locks on the beer fridge and larder.  

It has been an honour to have Campo playing at Norwich Rugby Club. He has been an integral part of the team both on and off the pitch. We hope he stays in touch and pays us a visit some time in the future. For now, farewell mate and thanks for everything.

When the players presented him with some more stash after the game, he was required to drink a yard. Since he doesn't drink ale, he had to drink gassy lager making the task much more difficult. You can see how he got on in the gallery photos here


Captain Gareth Leake allowed Campo the honour of leading the team out in his last game.
