I don't know where to start, firstly I hope you are well, and for those with ankle biters, hope you're feeling the relief of schools hosting the kids for many hours of the day once more. 

With the issuing of the road map out of lockdown, brings the fantastic news that we can return to Rugby from the end of the month, and early signs are its more or less where we left off, which is just amazing. Our volunteers within the Covid committee will be approving the refreshed risk assessments, and we can all look forward to seeing Home park being used for our favourite sport. The precaution that remains in place is the aspect of the summer months, this is still suspended with further details expected early April. 

I have been engaged in Berkshire meetings and had a helpful presentation from Steve Grainger from the RFU, it is recognised that we have players who have missed out on huge development in the space of Rugby and skills, and therefore where we would be moving to new laws at each age-grade, these will be transitioned differently in the new season. 
More information can be found on the RFU website Coronavirus (englandrugby.com)



International Women's Day
Although its passed, it would be remise of me not to spotlight some of the amazing women involved in Rugby and particularly our wonderful club. Here's just a few:

Beki Davies - Club Coach Coordinator (CCC)
Marie Mylchreest - Club Volunteer Coordinator 
Louise Harris - Team Manager U7
Sarah Tanner - Team Manager U8
Katherine Mather - Coach U10

MAMILs ... 

So here's an offer I know you can't resist! Since we've not had our lovely rugby, many of us have taken to our bikes and peddled far and wide. In response to popular demand we have looked into a WRFC cycle top.... we're at the early stages of highly technical design.... however if you would be interested in one, please get in touch with our fab online shop volunteers  - shop@windsorrugby.co.uk
Just to be clear there are women's versions available also. 

 

Six Nations ..... 

Well..... you know what I want to type, struggling to contain myself!....... I'll just leave you with the below and Happy St Patricks Day!


Finally, if anyone has cracked the madness of the RWC ticketing website, please send all help to H Crick! Who fancies a club tour to Marseille around 15th October 2023??? 

Take care and see you all soon.....
