Our Clubhouse is open from 12noon, as the day kicks off with a Masters Rugby League game between Carlisle and NE Masters at 2.30pm
Then we have the 2nd Test live at 5pm
Carlisle Rugby Club are delighted to offer their support for former player Chris Harris, as he receives his call up by Warren Gatland to the second British and Irish Lions test against the Springbok this Saturday in Cape Town.
Chris having made his way through our junior ranks played at senior level before moving onto Tynedale RFC, Newcastle Falcons and now enjoys his club rugby at the Cherry & Whites, Gloucester Rugby Club.
The club were proud when he was selected to play international rugby for Scotland and felt we had played a small part in his achievement. Now when he pulls on that coveted Lions test shirt this Saturday, he will have reached the pinnacle of his rugby career, and we will be immensely proud that one of our own has achieved this accolade.
We hope that Chris’s achievement will spur on more of our players to dedicate themselves to the game, so that in future years, Carlisle RFC can once again applaud another of our home-grown talent when they reach their potential.
Players from Chris’s era will be paying tribute to his achievement in a specially televised piece for Border TV this Friday.
Please come along to the club this Saturday as we wish him and the rest of the Lions team a great game of rugby, and the win.
President Carlisle RFC
