Following an election at a recent meeting of Cumbrian clubs, Roger Hackney from Penrith was elected as the Cumbria representative on the council of the Rugby Football Union.  He defeated two other excellent candidates in Tom Hurst (also Penrith) and Neil Anderson from KIrkby Lonsdale.

community20rugby90x124We offer our congratulations to Roger, and trust that during his period of office that he will put the needs of the member clubs at the top of his agenda!

Hackney takes up his post in July when our present representative, John Owen, is elevated to the position of President of the RFU.


Hopefully, Hackney will choose to restore a long standing tradition to the rugby calendar in Cumbria!    It was always the custom that our RFU representative invited in turn, the president and others, from all the clubs in the county, to one of the after match dinners following home international matches.

Those elected to the office of RFU representative are there by dint of the clubs that make up the constituent body.  They have an obligation to make sure that all those volunteers out in the sticks have their efforts recognised in a tangible way.  Let’s wait and see!
