RFU Touchline Magazine – May 2018 Edition
May Touchline celebrates Saracens being crowned champions of the inaugural Tyrrells Premier 15s competition, the RFU becoming Sports Governing Body of the Year and winning Sustainability of the Year at the BT Sport Industry Awards, and bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games for England Sevens men and women..
The RFU takes Twickenham soil to the grave of former England captain Ronald Poulton Palmer, and brings soil from his grave back to bury beside the Twickenham pitch. Reputed to be the best player of his day, and captain of the 1914 Grand Slam winning side, as he lay dying in Flanders he said: “I shall never play at Twickenham again.”
Quilter Kids First welcomes 240 to a Twickenham convention, all working to put children at the heart of the game. And Sports Minister Tracy Crouch praises Project Rugby for work with traditionally under-represented groups.
There is also a chance to win a trip of a lifetime to Karma Kandara, Bali, where the England Sevens men enjoyed some fantastic r & r.
