Dear friends and loyal supporters of YOUR Club,

Thank you all for your patience as we have been firming up arrangements over the past few days.  The great news is that I can now confirm that those who applied for coach transport have been allocated a seat.  The last batch of emails  informing of seat allocation and payment details have been sent this evening.  Please note the deadline for payment.  The purpose of this Briefing Note is to provide you all useful details relating to the day, including those who may be travelling independently.

The first think to note is that this is a free, ticketless event and spectators are encouraged to join us

Core Values

 

We would like to remind all of our supporters of the values of rugby – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship.  We would like to celebrate the whole of the Game, to show what is good about it and to promote why we believe it is the ultimate team sport.  What takes place on the touchline and in the stands on our Finals Days is as important as what is happening on the pitch.  Please help us to adhere to rugby’s expectations to maintain the reputation and image of our sport and likewise, of OUR club.  We have been reminded that stewards will be challenging any behaviour that conflicts with the values of rugby.

 

Many thanks in advance for your support – remember to pack your Barum Spirit
