Volunteers essential to Club Rugby

It’s important to acknowledge the volunteers behind all our clubs and schools. Each club has a superstar or two behind the scenes, and they do a power of work to get their teams out on the field. They wear many hats and are often coaching a junior team, refereeing, managing a senior team or organising the BBQ.
