Local MP Kevin Foster took the opportunity of a question in the House this morning, and asked the Minister at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (Rt Hon David Evennett MP) to extoll the virtues of Rugby Union, not only in Torbay, but also in the wider South-West region.
Rugby Union in our area is a real, and sometimes unheralded, success story. Our local rugby clubs undertake some fantastic work in their local communities for all age groups, players with disabilities, and for both men and women. Perceptions of Rugby Union will change as people become more aware of just what fantastic assets our Devon RFU clubs are.
