JOSH LACEY TO BE ENGLAND MASCOT
Norwich Under 10 Josh Lacey is going to be England's mascot at Twickenham on the 11th November against Argentina. Josh suffers from a very rare condition that means his sight is failing him. He is very enthusiastic about his rugby and always volunteers to be ballboy or help out with the 1st XV team. The team have taken him under their wing and Vice Captain Chris Parrott made contact with England hooker Jamie George who very kindly took up Josh's case and sorted it out. We are all very grateful to Jamie and England Rugby for their kindness and know that this delightful and unassuming little boy will have the time of his life.
