We're delighted to announce that NRU's Team of the Month Award for November 2019 goes to Medicals RFC. They win 20 tickets to the Newcastle Falcons v Ealing game on Sat, 28th March 2020 at Kingston Park, kindly donated by Newcastle Falcons.
Please have a read of their nomination below and why they are worthy winners ...
Medicals RFC are historically a relegation candidate and so far in the last month we have:
• Drawn away from home against Northern.
• Beaten Westoe at home
• Narrowly lost to M'boro away from home by 2 points
• Beat 2nd in the league Stockton convincingly last weekend.
These results are not something you would expect from Medicals, as we are only 2 wins away from matching our win record from the whole of last season. Last season we only won 7 games, this year we are currently on 5 wins from 9.
We've also seen a significant increase in playing numbers and have been able to field 3 sides every week with over 60+ players playing local rugby each week. We are now planning on aiming to arrange a 4th team fixture if the high numbers remain consistent over the coming weeks.
We also have a social event planned every Saturday from now up until Xmas including the beer pong world cup, board game night and the Christmas quiz.
Medicals RFC also hosted a fundraising event in November in aid of the mental health charity "Whats Behind the Smile" which was set up by our club physio. The event, named "Meds Got Talent", saw an assortment of entertaining acts by members of the club and raised £5,000, which will be handed over to the charity at their game against Whitley Bay Rockcliff on 7th December.
