70 Years of Sir Thomas Rich's Rugby : 1946-2016 - this terrific milestone was celebrated Saturday 19th March 2016 with an all-day Sevens Bonanza featuring teams made up from past & present Richians. A great spectacle and unique opportunity for former players and supporters to meet up, socialise, reminisce and rekindle their on-field skills and team spirit. Full Contact or Touch, it didn't matter : a fantastic day was had by all. And in the evening, a celebratory dinner rounded off the day perfectly. Prime movers behind the celebrations were Director of Sport/Chief Rugby Coach Rhys Williams & Deputy Headmaster Chris Carter.
An album of photographs taken during the day's events and compiled by Vicky Lynn can be viewed  here
