Hackney Rugby Club's annual 10s tournament - the Matt Elliott Cup, was held on Sunday amidst a tropical rain storm. A chance for old and new players to don their boots for a day of fun and frolics down at Springhill Park. With the use of several gazebos, the new changing rooms and plenty of food and drink, everyone's spirits were kept high throughout which made for a thoroughly entertaining day.

A little less than 3 weeks ago Hackney RFC received a call asking us to step in and host a young man who was travelling from Trinidad and whose existing plans had fallen through.

You can support these moustachio'd heroes by donating to our chosen cause here. Or you can join us, stop shaving that upper lip and send this round to your friends and family.

An absolutely brilliant turn-out for the second Matt Elliot Memorial Cup ensured a massively successful day at Springhill last Saturday. Despite the rock hard pitches plenty of great rugby was played, not least by the Gladies whose inter-club 7s game completely blew away most of the spectators preconceptions of women's rugby - showcasing the new sides skills and entertaining everyone.
