A group of rowers from the Community team at Worcester Warriors will be aiming to show how oar-some they are when they take part in a Charity Rowathon at Bath Rugby on Friday, July 17.
Matt Warne, Teacher at Warriors Study Centre, Dave Rogers, Education Programme Co-ordinator, and Simon Lane, Community Rugby Officer, will be competing for the prized trophy over 21,000 metres while at the same time building up a sweat and raising much needed funds for The Wooden Spoon.
The Wooden Spoon is the children's charity of the rugby world and has been a major backer of Playing for Success (PfS) and donates money to the Study Centre programme.
For 25 years Spoon has harnessed the spirit and values of rugby to give disadvantaged children in Britain and Ireland a chance to achieve their full potential in life. Over this time more than 350 projects have been supported with over £15million given in grants to national and local projects.
The team from Sixways Stadium will be up against other rugby sides, including Bath Rugby, Gloucester and Bristol Rugby, and other sporting sides at the event.
Premiership Rugby today announced an extension of their partnership with the UK's largest insurance company, Aviva, for a further three years. The contract extension, which starts in the 2014-15 season, will cover a golden era for club rugby in England and will include a period when the country will host a Rugby World Cup and when rugby union will finally rejoin the Olympic movement.
Not only are the great and the good of the Aviva Premiership Rugby strutting their stuff at Twickenham this Saturday - so are the new generation of rugby players, including Worcester RFC, courtesy of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
Warrior Stuart Brooks will represent the club at Twickenham next weekend as he battles for the honour of carrying the coveted Aviva Premiership Rugby trophy onto the pitch ahead of the final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints.
