While we can’t be watching England Rugby in our clubhouse just yet or be at Twickenham Stadium, just so you know, The Cockles sent our club shirt to Twickers to take pride of place in the stands to make sure we are represented and are supporting the England Mens & Womens Red Roses in spirit if not in person.
We were there with some 450 other clubs for the first two games. Easy to spot our Colours.
A message from England Rugby CLICK HERE
The RFU wanted to create a visual representation of the community game by displaying one shirt per club. Each shirt will remind the players where they started their rugby careers, that we’re all still cheering them on from a distance and, perhaps more importantly, will underline to everybody watching on TV the importance of grassroots rugby and the impact the pandemic is having on our community game.
Fans can also send in messages of support to show in England Rugby and the Red Roses’ team rooms. Cockles Junior Teams especially, simply email a photo, in team kit and message to PatrickMowbray@RFU.com
