As we approach what would normally be our 4th game of the competitive league season, we still await an update from the RFU on the proposed start date of the 2020-21 season.
Despite everyone’s frustrations, we are pleased to report that we have secured the services of 2 players on season long loans from Wasps Senior Academy.
Zac Nearchou is a familiar name to us at all CRUFC. He made a positive impact in the latter part of last season. He is a prop forward who can play either side of the scrum and someone who is exceptionally dynamic in the loose. Physically he has benefitted immeasurably from his recent exposure of training with the senior squad at Wasps.
Our second player is back 3 flyer, Jude Williams. He comes to us with a wealth of age grade experience after being capped for England at both U18 and U19 ages. Last season he was unlucky to pick up a number of injuries which reduced the number of playing opportunities. His attacking profile will suit our style of play and augment our back 3 options.
A warm blood and sand welcome to both players as we continue to prepare for the season and enhance our strong relationship with Wasps and their coaching staff.
