How did the LCJRU score such a coup?  It’s a great story about what one family can do to help out their local club.  The Jones Family live in Lane Cove, but they are originally from Wales.  They went back to Wales to visit family and they just happened to meet the Head Coach of the Wales 7’s team.  They got talking and the Jones Family asked if the Welsh team would mind coming to the Lane Cove Junior Rugby Union Club grounds to conduct a clinic?  The Head Coach said they would be delighted to come.   The Jones family headed back to Lane Cove.  The Welsh Team contacted the Jones Family and said they were very keen to meet the Rugby kids of Lane Cove.

So on Wednesday 1 Feb between 5 and 7 pm the Welsh 7’s team will be at Tantallon Oval.  Everyone is welcome to come down.  Currently, 75 kids are participating (including 12 girls).  The clinic is for kids between Under 8’s and Under 12’s.  There will be a BBQ and a family friendly atmosphere.  The registration desk will also be open for anyone who is keen to sign up their kids to play Rugby.

So next time you meet a great sportsperson ask them to come down to your local sports club – you never know what might happen!!
