Community engagement/Fanzone Opportunities

How you can you embed your rugby club firmly into the local community and attract new members.

Cheshire RFU and RFU Cheshire Development team would like to invite you to the 2nd Rugby World Cup Workshop. The meetings will be arranged in clusters across the county – We’d like for your club to attend the most local if possible:

  • Wirral RUFC – 16th February, 7.00 – 9.00 pm
  • Wilmslow RUFC – 23rd February, 7.00 – 9.00 pm
  • Sandbach RUFC – 2nd February, 7.00 – 9.00 pm

At the meetings we hope to:

  • Examine various community engagement and fanzone opportunities for
    clubs within the county – before, during and after the Rugby World cup.
  • Co-ordinate needs analysis for each club.
  • Demonstrate how to develop/strengthen relationships with the local
    community.
  • Pull together robust individual club plans – from the mini and juniors up
    to the senior section.
  • Help you to source volunteers from within your club to help make plans a
    reality.

There will be a buffet served at 7pm and we aim to get started for 7.15pm and away for 9pm at the latest.

These initial cluster meetings are aimed at all those with your club with a development role or interest in getting involved:

  • RWC Club Champions
  • Club Chairman, Secretary, M&J Chair, Colts Managers, Volunteer
    Coordinators, Club Safeguarding Officers, Team Managers
  • Young Rugby Ambassadors

We suggest that each club brings several members with them to help discussions and pull together a really robust club plan.

If you would like to attend then please confirm to Jane Cliff directly to me. If you have any questions before hand then please get in touch.

The RWC is less than 12 months away – Do not let your club be left behind!

PLEASE CONFIRM NOW

Cheshire Under 20’s ( 7 ) v Yorkshire ( 34 ) @ Bowdon RUFC 30/11/14

The winter sun, manicured playing surface, and vocal home support should have gone some way to provide home advantage in this fixture, which has always been a challenging contest. Pre-game preparation under coach Heagerty (and staff) clearly focussed on performance, and the intensity of play required to both keep possession and move ‘through phases’. The first ten minutes produced a confident Cestrian performance, breaking the gain line to ruck and counter ruck, before line speed released a scything run on the left wing for a converted home try.

That unfortunately was to be the only score for the home team. The next 20 minutes saw an equally balanced contest between the teams, but when a missed penalty for Cheshire occurred at 32 mins, this was seized upon by the visitors who responded with their own try from out wide. Unfortunately followed in close succession by both a penalty and penalty try for infringement at the maul. Too many errors by the young Cesrtrian’s conceded vital points. There were unfortunate injuries for the home team to get a firm foothold to defend against simple ‘blitz’ and ‘sweep’ tactics of the visitors.

The second half, although displaying some good individual skills and phases from Cestrian set piece was fractious and error strewn, handing advantage away to a drilled opposition. Coming from behind is part of any Rugby game’s due process, but staying together as a team is a necessary part of improvement. This, the young Cestrians clearly demonstrated, being reflective of their performance and requirements before leaving the field of play and at debrief. Final Score 7. 34

The immediate performance review has already commenced, and further training sessions are already in place to focus on the next 80 minutes play. Cheshire team manager, Ian Stanton, after the game said  “ This wasn’t a fixture where we could afford to make any errors, we came up short  and that hurts ,the next two games are now more of a challenge, but this team must  take away the positives  that were demonstrated and learn from this experience “

Thanks must be made to the travelling supporters and Bowdon RUFC for hosting the fixture.
