RFU Touchline Magazine – July 2016 Edition
Your July Touchline celebrates England Rugby’s glorious season end, with a three-match whitewash of Australia, the U20s winning the World Rugby Championship for the third time in four seasons and the Saxons 2-0 series win in South Africa.
This edition also takes a look at the impact the NatWest RugbyForce weekend had on clubs, Prince Harry joining youngsters in Manchester for a skills session with a difference and Tynedale RFC turning their club around after Storm Desmond.
NatWest RugbyForce Weekend
The NatWest RugbyForce weekend took place on 25-26 June and saw clubs participate in a weekend of DIY.
Will Greenwood and Lewis Moody become honorary board members of Royston and Bolton RUFCs as part of the project.
Prince Harry's Try for Change
RFU Vice-Patron Prince Harry joined 30 youngsters for a training session to remember in Stockport.
He appeared alongside the England U20s squad, as they worked with a group of local youngsters taking part in a traditional and freestyle StreetGames rugby skills workshop.
Tynedale RFC Turn the Tide
Tynedale RFC in Northumbria recently turned the tide after being coachless and homeless, Storm Desmond drowning their clubhouse and pitches.
Local community support and help from members has enabled them to be back on top for their 140th anniversary.
