Dev XV 52-47 Bumble Bees (approx score)

January 23rd, 2017 Comments off
The Bumble Bees, a side based at Bradford and Bingley rugby club, was set up a number of years ago to give men and boys with learning difficulties the chance to play rugby along-side more able-bodied players.

Last Saturday the Bumble Bees played our “Development” XV (including the up and coming Neil Dickinson, Jonathan Davies, Simon Horsfall and Jon Feeley) at the Avenue.


The second half of the match saw the introduction of all the Bumble Bees during which the home side fully immersed themselves in the spirit of the occasion by falling off tackles and reducing their speed. The Bumble Bees, at the same time, thoroughly enjoyed themselves with their frequent try scoring efforts.

Many of you will have read of Simon Ravens’ great book about our club, Riverball! It’s had plaudits from luminaries such as John Inverdale and Bill Beaumont, but just as importantly it’s had a big thumbs-up from most of us at the club. There are still copies left, and with Christmas on the horizon, we’re reducing the price from £16.99 to £10 – with 2 copies for £15. Every penny of this money goes straight into the club coffers. We’re always keen to introduce our great club to those not ‘in the know’, so by buying copies you’ll be supporting our efforts in more ways than one. The book will be available from the club shop from this Saturday’s home match against South Leicester.
