Rugby World Cup comes to the Bulls!

The countdown to the Rugby World Cup gathered pace in Kent on Thursday when the famous trophy came to Aylesford Bulls Rugby Club.


It is hoped that the presence of the trophy will help enthuse youngsters to take up the sport – and get behind England in the World Cup which gets under way later this month.

Sports Minister Tracey Crouch, pictured with the Webb Ellis Trophy at Aylesford RFC, said: “I feel really proud the Rugby World Cup has come into the county.

“It’s a great opportunity for the trophy to be showcased around the area and inspire a future generation of people who want to get involved in the sport.

“The earlier you get people involved in the sport, the more likely they are to go on and play it for a long time.

“We are a rugby nation already anyway. We have a strong presence in our county, we have some excellent clubs and in Aylesford I am proud of what they do to inspire kids to get involved.

“Lots of people get involved from a young age to veteran rugby and it’s something we should continue to support.”
