Players who have piled on some weight during lockdown and want to get fit again for the fast, new, non-contact rugby may want to sign up to an initiative launched by Old Albanians and raise money for charities which include the RFU Injured Players Foundation.

Four years ago Harry Langley was injured playing hooker for the University of Sussex when he was 20. Since then he has shifted his focus to wheelchair rugby and is now aiming to represent Team GB at the Paralympic Games.

AMROS Golf Event Management & Promotions will be supporting the Injured Players Foundation and Wooden Spoon Worcestershire at their upcoming ‘Big Lunch’ on Friday 5th July at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich. With special guests Sir Clive Woodward and Worcester Warriors’ Chris Pennell, this promises to be a spectacular event.

On Wednesday 1st May a group of walkers set off from Twickenham Stadium on a 150 mile walk to Stourbridge Rugby Club. A week later a group of cyclists followed the same route and the two teams arrived at Stourbridge Rugby Club on Friday 10th May for a day of celebration.
