On Saturday 17 July, 14 Old Boys entered a social team for Colchester Rugby Club's Tom Miller 10s Tournament. The team consisted of: Matt Parker RL, James Parker CWD, Jack Orr HK, Ross McConnell CWD, George Butt RL, Toby Eaton CWD, Ollie Sellers CWD, Harvey Sellers CWD, Rory Sellers CWD, Cam Williams HK, Sean Cuddihy CWD, Max Orr DK, Sam Connor St V and Drew Felstead RL.
It was a fantastic day, the players played in searing heat, some of whom had not played rugby since RHS!
It was great to see so many friends get out and play in a tournament in memory of their close friend Tom Miller who sadly passed away in December last year. The tournament helped raise hundreds of pounds for the OddBalls Foundation, a testicular cancer charity, which Tom was a proud ambassador of.
Although the team (Tommy's Trumpeteers) did not win the tournament, they all played with a smile on their face and beer not far away, as Tom would have wanted.
The tournament was great preparation for the Tommy Miller Memorial game on Saturday 31 July. RHS Alumni XV will take on a Nottingham Trent (Tom's University Team) XV at Nottingham's Championship ground in Lady Bay.
This event will be ticketed: all the proceeds will go to the OddBalls Foundation.
