Steve Hipwell re-joins Cambridge Rugby

We are delighted to announce that ex Cambridge favourite Steve Hipwell has re-joined the Blood and Sand for the next season.

The signing underlines the ambition of the club and demonstrates the attraction of returning to a club heading in the right direction.

Steve was a player at Cambridge between 2011-2015 and has already amassed over 100 1st XV appearances scoring 48 tries in the process. He will give us another powerful ball carrying option in the back row and add more quality in an already strong position.

Head coach Richie Williams adds, “As a club we are extremely excited to welcome back a player who already has strong cultural connections with the club. We are confident that Steve will bring huge amounts of energy to the squad, and we will be looking at him to be a figurehead in a long and attritional season. It will be a great opportunity for the likes of Louis Rawlings, Jake McCloud and Keifer Laxton to learn from his experience. It will also create genuine competition in our back row and allow us play a variety of styles.”
