AGM 2015 Thursday 28th May 2015

The AGM will take place at the clubhouse at 1930hrs on Thursday 28th May 2015. The Agenda can be found on  the downloads page of this website.

Any members still clinging to the belief that email is either witchcraft or the work of electronic pixies, should have received a hard copy by post.

Please note that discussions on the relocation of the club will not take place that night and will be subject to a Special General Meeting at some point in the future. This is not designed to reduce attendance so that our incoming President has to buy less beer but for technical reasons associated with the proposal.

Annual Dinner a Great Success

A terrific evening was spent in the company of former Llaneli, Wales & British & Irish Lions star Scott Quinnell at our annual dinner. There are some photos posted on Facebook and the same ones in a smaller file size on our gallery pages that you can access by clicking here

With many thanks to our sponsors and guests, to those that generously bought the auction prizes not just for the club but also some signed and framed Lewis Moody underpants (clean ones!) in aid of testicular cancer research. Thanks also to Steve Henson for his organisation of the event and to our excellent guest speaker Scott Quinnell.

Final thanks must go to Andy Ball who has been an outstanding President for three consecutive seasons.

A Fabulous Day of Mini Rugby

What a fabulous day of mini rugby was witnessed at the club for the annual mini festival. Approx 800 players from 12 clubs and 78 teams made for a display of all that's good about mini rugby. Played in the right spirit with great support the day went brilliantly. Many thanks to Lisa Snary and her whole organising team and volunteers, you did the children proud. More information at the bottom of this page.

Wheelchair Rugby is coming to Norwich

Many years ago Mike Srokowski of club sponsor Validus hosted a GB Mens Wheelchair Rugby Team demo at the City College in an attempt to spread the sport into our region. It didn't take off as we had hoped but Active Norfolk and current players are trying again with the support of Norwich Rugby Club. We need to promote this so any help you can give to spread the word and get this happening would be appreciated. It's brutal and entertaining to watch as well as play in.

Old Cooperians 5 Norwich 72 - 11/04/2015

Norwich were keen to finish their league season on a high and achieve a top four place which had been the target at the start of the season. They did this in style on Saturday against the bottom club who despite some close results at home have been relegated. Dave MicklethwaiteNorwich scored 12 tries and when they look at the video the team may feel they should have scored more but perhaps that’s being greedy. Both sides showed an inclination to get the ball wide at every opportunity with .....
