When Tigers met Lions

23rd April 2024


Our M&Y had a roaring time at the Howden Big Rugby Day Out!


On Saturday 21st April 2024, our M&Y headed down to Oxford University Rugby Club’s Iffley Road ground for an excellent day as Howden launched their partnership with the Lions Origin Programme, star-studded by Lions’ Gavin Hastings and Jason Robinson, plus Red Roses’ Maggie Alphonsi.

This programme is so inspirational for all young rugby players at grassroots level as it’s a celebration of the excellent guidance community clubs give to players on their journey to playing professionally – including us! Along with jam-packed coaching sessions, our players were given the opportunity to see and hear for themselves just how much the support of their community club can help them progress.

All origin clubs were given a commemorative plaque as recognition of the fantastic role and influence they have had in producing such great professional players over the years and we’re very proud to have been one of them!




We are a competitive rugby club providing sport for all. Our players start as Tiger Cubs (under 4’s) and play at all levels and ages up to Veterans, boys and girls, men and women, in fully inclusive environment, embracing all of rugby's core values.
