18 teams – one Club


An invitation from Thurston RFC

Thurston Promo Sept 2014A message from our mates at Thurston RFC
“We hope you are well and your season has kicked off to a good start!

As you will be aware Woodbridge is due to be coming over the Robinson Field to play us on Saturday 27th September. To celebrate this double home game for us, our esteemed club president ‘Andrew Speed’ will be hosting our first ever Ladies Day.

We would like to extend the invitation to all Woodbridge players to bring their ladies along to enjoy a drinks reception, wine tasting session, sit down meal, beauty treatments and of course a game (or two!) of rugby!

I have attached our flyer for your reference and will also be sending some in the post to your clubhouse, could I ask you to pass this on to all those you think may like to attend and in turn support all the boys on the pitch!

We would like to gain an idea of numbers as soon as possible, so please if you have any interest or any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly on thurstonrugbyclub@live.co.uk”

Calling all Saxons – Exiles match this w/e

1453293_630907527026347_2513765755196911262_nExiles have asked that this weekend (13/9 KO 1400hrs) any Woodbridge Saxons/Vets who are not playing or supporting the 1st XV, have a game against the Exiles. As an Exile (but ex-Woodbridge player) Ernie Pallett hopes to generate enough interest among some of the potential but ‘wavering’ players to provide impetus for the Saxons to run a full second team all season.

RBS 6 Nations Tickets

Please see attached application forms for the 2015 RBS 6 Nations. This has been sent to known VPs and players.

The usual rules apply about not buying tickets as gifts or selling to others.

In recent years some people have placed photos of their match tickets on social media sites such as Facebook/Twitter which has resulted in them being copied and sold illegally on 3rd party sites. The RFU requires clubs to instruct members not to place tickets allocated to them on such sites. This will help ensure that the Club doesn’t unknowingly contravene the Ticket Application Conditions which would result in a sanction against the Club and a reduction in match tickets for future games.

As usual you need to be a paid up player 17 or over, or a VP (paid up for 2014/15) to be eligible to apply.

Closing date is Wednesday 24th September
