Bury Rugby

Friday, May 19, 2017

Bury St Edmunds have appointed Irish rugby legend Kevin Maggs as their new Pro-AM Rugby Director, on a part-time basis.

Eastern Counties Women suffered the first defeat this season in a tough encounter away to table-topping Leicestershire, despite playing arguably their best rugby this campaign.

With the sun shining and top class international rugby 7s on display, the crowd poured into the Greene King IPA Haberden in their droves at Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club as the British Army won the ninth annual Greene King IPA 7s tournament.

Eastern Counties Ladies got off to a winning start, 26-20, against Warwickshire Women at Stowmarket RFC, in their Gill Burns Women’s County Championship Plate first round match.

Bury were unable to grant outgoing coach Gavin Hogg a final home win as a resolute Canterbury did just enough to edge this disappointing game in National 2, 14-13.

Tui Uru (Ipswich) was among the try scorers as Eastern Counties beat Middlesex 34-12 in the RFU under-20 Shield at Shelford, to clinch a quarter-final place.

Bury took a big stride to securing their National 2 status with a bonus-point victory over relegation rivals Barnes.

A Chris Lord hat-trick was just enough to see a nervy Bury side home, 33-28, against a spirited and determined Exmouth.

The former Bury St Edmunds school teacher, club president, chairman and player has been described as “a friend to all” after he died from a long illness on February 9.

Bury St Edmunds, buoyed by their late rally to win at Worthing last weekend, are brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s tough home test against fourth-placed Taunton Titans in National League Two South (3pm kick-off).
