Wisbech Rugby Club continues search to find the next Jonny Wilkinson

WISBECH Rugby Club will continue their search to find the next Jonny Wilkinson on Sunday.

With the Rugby World Cup about to start in New Zealand, the Harecroft Road outfit will begin pre-season training for children aged six to 16.

More than 140 youngsters from the area played for the club’s numerous mini teams last season.

A club spokesman said: “The great thing about rugby is that it is a team sport and suits children of all sizes.

“There is a position to suit everyone in a rugby team. What we want most is commitment and determination – as a contact sport you need to be willing to get stuck in.

The club has teams from under-7s to under-17s. Training begins at 10am. For more information visit www.wisbechrugby.com
