Should clubs need a hand in getting to the event we would like to hear from you to see how we might be able to help with your fund raising.

For too long over 35 Rugby has been driven by the powers that be that skim off those that have a few bob and make it tough for the average bloke to travel.

The Good Bastards Rugby Club is committed to promoting grass roots rugby and helping with the problems at club level, especially that of fund raising.

We need all the help we can get to spread the word out there.

It would be great if you could forward this email to everyone you know in over 35 Rugby.

Give us a hand and send this bastard on
