These have been tough times for the young rugby players at Richard Huish College who have been unable to play the sport that they love under the restrictions imposed by Covid 19.
Despite all of the setbacks the mood among the rugby players has remained upbeat, as First XI captain George Gass has explained to Tone News: ‘
There is just such a great environment at Huish’s to be involved with and they are a really great bunch of lads. It has been very frustrating for us because we were all really looking forward to the season, as it was probably going to be the best year’s rugby we’d had.
The college have tried to keep us out training and playing as much rugby as we are allowed which has been brilliant. Huish’s have been really good the way that they have organized and structured things and have helped us to cope with these difficult times.
The 18 year old fly half went on:
There is so much happening at college, with the formation of Huish Tigers Rugby Club that will play in the Somerset League, setting up a new ground and of course the link up with Bristol Bears Academy.
Despite the lockdown Huish are remaining positive and have arranged an Easter Half Term coaching day which is aimed at young players who are currently in years 10/11.
If the restrictions continue, we will arrange coaching days in May/June. To find out more about the Easter Half Term Coaching Day please contact Chris Heal on firstname.lastname@example.org
