The club erntertained and under 15 touring side from Ealing on Easter Sunday and following their return to London, they have sent Barry Israel a missive that reflects well on both Barry and Carlisle RFC.


A simply brilliant day.
The best I’ve ever spent at any rugby club – ever.
We were all blown away by your hospitality.
Two of our parents had heart attacks on the way
home!  The doctors have blamed eating six
desserts one after the other!
Please come and see us at Ealing.  We would be
shaking with fear that we couldn’t even stat to
match your welcome, but we’d love to have a go!
If you want to reduce costs we can always put
your boys up.
But the interesting thing is, we have had a
discussion about coming back to the north west,
so fantastic was the welcome.
It’s a cliche, but you have displayed the true
spirit of rugby.”

Knowing how hard Barry and his other youth committee people and helpers worked’, it is satisfying that their efforts were not in vain, but genuinely appreciated.

They don’t do it for the praise, but well done to all those who helped to make it a great day out, with rugby being the winner.
