Millwall RC steps up at Twickenham

Millwall Rugby Club's name was unveiled by club members Michael Paling, Sophie Morris and David Paling, on a step at Twickenham Stadium ahead of the RBS 6 Nations England vs France clash on Saturday.  

The club name was placed on the step as a reward for Millwall RC signing up for NatWest RugbyForce in 2013.  In total 176 clubs were awarded and saw their name appear on the steps at the home of England Rugby.

Phil Vickery, former England prop and World Cup winner is a supporter of the NatWest RugbyForce programme and said: “Coming from a very small club, Bude RFC in Cornwall, I know how important the rugby club is within the local community, and how much support they need. NatWest RugbyForce is all about improving club facilities to help safeguard their future. The NatWest RugbyForce club steps at Twickenham on Saturday were a reminder of where rugby began for many of our international players – at grassroots clubs.”
