Rise and Shine
Beckenham RFC, England full back Elliott Daly’s first club, had plenty to celebrate as Daly helped England secure their amazing semi-final win - in the club’s 25th anniversary season. You can watch them showing their support for the team here.

The Argentinian Ambassador to the UK, the Mayor of Rugby, the local MP and Councillors watched pupils from two Rugby based schools, St Marie’s Catholic Primary School and Dunchurch Schoo, in a Rugby World Cup Festival at St Marie’s on 18 October. Over 160 children from 16 schools played in the tag rugby competition.

Petersfield RFC hosted Havant 2s in the Hampshire Premiership on Friday evening under floodlights. Despite pouring rain, the resulting 17-17 draw was watched by almost 200 spectators who enjoyed a curry buffet. This allowed more than 100 to be in the club next morning to cheer England on and enjoy breakfast.

We continue to post loads of interesting posts on England Rugby’s social media channels and it’s great that the nation continues to be behind the squad. #CarryThemHome

Join in the action and promote your club’s activities on your website, social media channels and in your local press.
Spotlight on our sport
England’s success in this Rugby World Cup and the surrounding publicity may well bring new young players wanting to get involved in rugby to our clubs. If your club needs help and advice on extra training sessions please contact your local Rugby Development Officer.
What better time to have a say in rugby’s future?
There’s nothing like a Rugby World Cup to energise everyone in the game and no better time to tell us what every individual wants from their rugby. Get your club members to give us their experience of the game via the current National Rugby Survey and they could win either one of five £100 England Rugby Store vouchers, or one of five pairs of tickets to an England Men’s XV match at Twickenham in 2020.
