Rugby Players In The Pink For Charity Match 2009: Organisers Charity

Rugby players in the pink for charity match

ORGANISERS of a charity rugby match want to make it an annual fixture following the success of their first event.
Crawley Rugby Club hosted the game in aid of male cancer charity Orchid. Zanger’s Legends, coached by former Thomas Bennett School teacher Neil Zanger, played Crawley Colts on Friday evening. Dean Riley, who helped arrange the match, said: “The game was fast and thrilling to watch and both teams put in a huge effort with big tackles and great runs. “The colts used their speed in the back line to continually pressure the legends and the legends responded with their powerful forwards and domination in the scrum.” Mr Riley added: “We felt there was not enough awareness of male cancers and because the sport is played by men it was a fitting charity to choose.” More than 150 people watched the game, which ended 27-20 to the colts.
