Ruby Union, supposedly a "Thugs game, played by gentlemen".

Physically bruising and demanding for the players, games are managed by refs who's word is law.
No arguments or backchat, players just accept the decision and get on with it.
A pleasant surprise these days, making Rugby Union a great source for role models.

On the day the Womens Rugby World Cup starts in Ireland, with England the current World Champions, hows about a shout out to our local Rugby Club, Chester.

Our very own group of gents, scrummaging just down the road in Littleton since 1961.

They have a multitude of teams, catering for all age ranges, including ladies.

The 1st team currently plays in the "National League 2 North" division, finishing 5th last year.

A high point in the clubs history was a win at Twickenham, beating local rivals Birkenhead Park, to take the EDF Intermediate Cup in the 2007/08 season.

We even have one of the Cup winning team, Rob Miles, currently living in Tarvin... somewhere.

Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
