As part of the 2015 RWC Legacy the RFU has gifted over 20,000 Gilbert Rugby World Cup replica and competing nation rugby balls to RFU member clubs in recognition of the great work of grassroots rugby clubs.

Based on the number of teams on the RFU Game Management System and in partnership with the knowledge of the local RFU delivery team, there is an allocation of 10 balls for each Senior XV team within NLD.  These will be distributed at the NLD AGM which will be held on Monday 27th June at Southwell RFC, 7.30pm.  As we have to take the logistics of transporting and storing such a large number of boxes of balls into consideration, if your club is not represented at the AGM then your allocation will have to be used elsewhere.

NLD Honorary Secretary Tracy Edmundson commented; ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to support clubs within NLD with extra resources and forms a part of the ‘legacy’ of the RWC.’

We look forward to seeing all clubs at the NLD AGM later this month and welcome this opportunity to support the fantastic work being done throughout the CB.
