Roseland Player – Captain against the Pirates!

For one Roseland player the season’s going to get off to very exciting start – Nathan Chapman has been selected to Captain the Cornish Clubs XV against the Cornish Pirates for the opening match of their Festival of Rugby!

A huge honour for both Nathan and the whole club. Hopefully lots of us will be able to make it down to Penzance for the game (full details here). Full team listing below. As part of the experience there’ll be coaching from Benji Thomas, Gavin Cattle and Alan Paver. The Cornish Clubs XV will be provided with a specially designed shirt, displaying the image of Cornwall made up from the names of all the clubs, whilst wearing their club shorts and socks (Barbarians-style).
