The scheduled Norfolk Cup Semi Final against Wymondham on Saturday 8th February, will not now take place until Saturday 4th April. This is the scheduled League game between the teams, to be held at Norwich and will be a 'double-header'. These was the wishes of both teams and so is a very sensible and pragmatic solution.




It is with the greatest sadness that we have to report the death of our old friend, former President and part of the fabric of our club, Brendan Dwyer. Brendan died in the early hours of Sunday 19th January after a long illness borne with his trademark good humour and determination. Brendan's heart and soul was in the Club and he had still been coming to watch the 1st XV games as recently as a few weeks ago.

He will be very sadly missed and our deepest sympathy is extended to Shirley and the family. Funeral details to follow.



Congratulations to 1st XV winger Adam Huggins, who has been selected to play in the U18 London Division  trails at London Irish Wildgeese on Sunday 26th January.

Adam is a product of our Mini and Youth system. Best of luck Adam.

Latest 1st XV Match Report

Stowmarket 0 Norwich 43 - 17/08/2019

This was Norwich’s most complete, 80 minutes of rugby this season. It was built on tenacious defence and patient attack, protecting the ball well. Stowmarket were never allowed to get a foothold in the game. Norwich dealt with the kick off and flankers Dave Micklethwaite and Jake Wharton combined to break out into Stowmarket territory, the backs going close in the corner. A ten metre scrum resulted, which was an area that Norwich dominated, all afternoon. With just 4 minutes gone, Norwich .....
