Great Time at Harvey's Back to Norwich Day

The Back to Norwich day was a great event with the President's game in the morning ending up with a very competitive match and the President's men running out winners 25:12 (I think). After a traditionally superb Lenihan lunch, the first team beat tough opponents Saffron Walden with a boys own performance from Campo in front of his father and brother who are over from Australia for a few weeks. Thanks to everyone that contributed to a great day at the club, one that Ziggy would have been particularly proud of.

Norwich Schools Tournaments Concludes with a second win for Notre Dame.

The conclusion of this seasons School Rugby Project was played out on 17th March at Norwich Rugby Club. Four Year 9 teams from Notre Dame, Sprowston, Thorpe and Hewett played for the Pilch Cup. There was some outstanding rugby played and so good to see how far these players have progressed since we started. Notre Dame took the honours after a hard fought match against Sprowston to seal their win. The cup was presented to the captain of Notre Dame by Colin Dunbar the School Liaison Officer at Norwich Rugby Club. One of the memorable moments of the day was the sportsmanship shown. At the presentation it was pointed out that 3 of the teams had been playing for at least 2 years with many of their players also playing youth rugby for local clubs But the lads from Hewett, who never gave up or let their heads drop had only started rugby 6 weeks earlier. To that everybody gave them a standing ovation.
We are very grateful to Pilch Sports for donating this trophy for the Year 9 Tournament
