A entertaining evening at LRFC with Stephen Jones
Rugby enthusiasts were given a rare treat on Friday when one of the most experienced in the world gave his insights into the forthcoming Six Nations. Stephen Jones left the audience in no doubt that this was going to be a very tight contest with the bounce of a ball, a referees decision or injuries to key personnel making all the difference. Many areas of the game were covered, from the future of the Lions and the Barbarians, to the relevance of the TMO, the importance of quality of refereeing to the future of the Premiership. Stephen Jones was particularly forthright that this league should not be ring fenced. In the Q and A session, Stephen took questions from the floor about every aspect of rugby, giving forthright answers – it was abundantly clear that this was a man who cares deeply about the game and is rightly concerned about the demands placed on professional players.
With Wales and Lions legend John Taylor due to speak at Ledbury RFC on 18th April, Ledbury RFC have yet another treat in store!
