The club has its own page on a new website www.everything4rugby.com which is run by current or retired professional rugby players including Tom May, Jamie Robinson, Jamie Noon and Rory Lamont. They have created a page for every club in the country and aim to provide a focal point for grass roots rugby. They are providing coaching advice, fitness and nutritional information, a one stop link to our social media functions (Facebook yet to be included as we have only just launched that) as well as features, interviews and news. One of their long term aims is to provide a powerful buying consortium for kit & equipment to drive down costs. Have a look and see what you think, it's free to register and we would value your views. The logo on our page will be sorted out this week.


Volunteers are the lifeblood of any club and we value our volunteers very highly at Norwich Rugby Club. Our Volunteer of the Month for September is Ali Taylor who has been the super-efficient administrator of the (now) U14 for 2 seasons. It makes everyone elses life so easy to know that things don't have to be chased up, they will just be sorted. Thanks Ali. Ali receives a volunteer of the month mug and a voucher for two persons at one of the excellent Norwich pre match lunches.

If mention of Christmas early in October is depressing you, there is method in Steve Henson's madness. Following the tremendous success of last year's pre Christmas party, another will be held this year. However, due to the popularity of last year's event, 125 places was felt to be a bit cramped so this year's will be limited to 100 places and are expected to be snapped up quite quickly.

It will be held on Saturday 13th December at the clubhouse with food, dancing and an auction for £32.50 per head. Please indicate whether you will have a table or just a few tickets. Please contact Steve Henson by email to book at steve@hensonevents.co.uk
