Club rugby returns to the city

2008-03-27 00:00

After much anticipation and behind-the-scenes manoeuvring, club rugby kicks off tonight.

Back at his alma mater and coaching Varsity this season, is former London Irish star Richard Bates. In his student days, loose forward Bates gave notice of what was to come with a series of outstanding displays, that saw him play for the KZN Wildebeest and one match for the Sharks, before a contract in the English Premier League took him to London. Watching Bates win a man-of-the-match award against Bath, at London Irish’s Madejski Stadium, it was evident he had lost none of his fire. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
