Cornwall RFU show support for Manchester

8 months ago By Pete Fielding

In the aftermath of the the Arena bombing support for Manchester continues

Following the tragic events in Manchester last week there was a minute's silence before the KO of the Lancashire v Cornwall County Final at Twickenham on Sunday.

To further recognise the close ties that Cornwall has with Lancashire, and the Cornwall RFU wishing to show unity and support for the people of Manchester and Lancashire , the Cornwall RFU President Mr Peter James presented the Lancashire RFU President, Mr Tom Fitzgerald,with 22 roses on the pitch at Twickenham.

The significance of the 22 red roses , is that the red rose is the emblem of Lancashire, 22 people tragically lost their lives in the atrocity and the rugby teams are made up of 22 players.Cornwall RFU asked that the Lancashire President lay the flowers at a suitable location in due course.
