Devon rugby clubs are being encouraged to enter the Crabbie’s 2018 National Rugby Awards, which give recognition to clubs at all levels and their members for their contribution to the game.
Clubs of all sizes can enter the awards, which recognise achievements, as well as dedication and commitment to the game of rugby.
The largest rugby club awards night in the world, the Crabbie’s 2018 National Rugby Awards event will be attended by rugby celebrities, Premiership players and members of the England rugby team and will be held at the Rose Room, Twickenham Stadium on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
Lucy Cottrell, Brand Manager, Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer, says: “Crabbie’s is an avid supporter of grassroots rugby. Our Crabbie’s Rugby Rewards activity sees us donate kit and equipment to community and local clubs up and down the country.
“The glamour of international tournaments is exciting, but the roots of rugby begin in local club communities. It’s the principles learned and nurtured during the early stages that build strong foundations for players’ sporting careers.

“The extensive support network local communities create around the game is invaluable, not just the players, but members and players’ families and friends too.
“There’s a real passion at grassroots level that deserves to be recognised and that’s why we would like local clubs in Devon to join us at the Crabbie’s National Rugby Awards event to celebrate their achievements, as well as everything else that’s great about Rugby.”
