Rugby Round-up

Rugby Round-up

Caterham 1st XV enjoyed a 33-0 win over KCS Wimbledon on Saturday in an excellent performance that bodes well for the season ahead.  Norwood put in a typically destructive performance, Criscuolo controlled proceeding from fly half and the forward quintet of Buxton, Haynes, Repton, Davidson and McGowan were dominant up front. Other tries came from and imperious Williams (2), and from U16 rookie star, Lock. Sometimes though sport is simply a distraction from reality, and the brace of tires from Poku was just that. The young man recently lost his father but showed tremendous courage and determination to put in an outstanding performance.

There were a host of other really well contested matches with the 2nds, 3rds, U16A and B and the U15 A, B and C all in action, dusting off the rugby cobwebs, ready for another exciting season ahead. This week the boys are in action against King’s, Canterbury. Good luck to all.

Welcome to Wade

We are delighted to welcome Mr Wade Kelly as the new Director of Rugby at Caterham. Wade has a wealth of experience in the game from coaching U5s right up to coaching professional teams. Having had a stellar pro career as a player (most notably at Exeter Chiefs), Wade coached the Scot’s College 1st XV in Sydney for five years, a period in which they dominated Australian school boy rugby. He then was Director of Rugby at Randwick Rugby Club, one of the most famous rugby clubs in the world. Already, he has had a huge impact with the 1st XV who are playing some superb enterprising rugby. But he is not just hear to coach the 1st XV and he can’t wait to lay the foundations at younger age groups so that all rugby players at Caterham have every opportunity to reach their potential.
