Northumberland “International” Rugby Event with Alnwick RFC Colts

On the 29th April 2022 Wooden Spoon Northumberland organised its own ‘international’ rugby match which was held at Alnwick RFC.


Alnwick Colts represented England Counties and a selection of Colts from Northumberland  & Scottish Border Clubs represented ‘the Rest of the World’. The shirts which were worn by both teams were very generously donated by Danny Hodgson and came from his collection of shirts which were given to him whilst he represented the RFU over many years of service to rugby. The shirts from rugby nations around the world were then modelled by the players before being auctioned. This was followed by an excellent meal and evening of rugby companionship, fun and laughter.



Wooden Spoon Northumberland would like to thank all the Wooden Spoon supporters, Alnwick RFC members and their friends for supporting this event. A special mention to the representatives of the George Crawford Legacy Trust who supported and attended this event.
