On Sunday 4th November 2018 Leicestershire Rugby held a 100 Year Memorial Service Match at Coalville Rugby Football Club.

Two matches were held, the first was a Leicestershire U18 team v Welbeck Sixth Form Defence College, followed by a match between a Leicestershire 15 that was made up of players that had served in the armed forces against The Royal Corps Signals Rugby.

Between the matches a 2 minute silence with colours of the British Legion being lowered in respect.

The Society provided Teams of 4 to both matches


Jenny Burrows refereed the U18 match assisted by AR's Elliott Coombes and Dan Everett and 4th Official Chris Hayward

Peter Bower refereed the Senior match with AR's Duncan Chandler and Gavin Hill with Chris Hayward as the 4th Official


Your Chairman & President provide advice to the officials from the VIP balcony



The latest revision from World Rugby of the Laws of the Game is now available on our Training Documents Page here

Please have a look as while there are no new or changed laws, the new wordings and definitions along with the numbers identifying the laws have all been substantially revised. (you can see the major changes using this crib sheet)

The 2018 Law Book is considerably shorter and easier to understand (but only if you take the time to read it!)
