Freddie Burns returns to the Club where his journey began at Avon RFC. Burns meets up with his former Mini's and Junior's coach Rob Matson to discuss old memories, delivers a kicking masterclass for a couple of lucky youngsters, talks about the importance of Grassroots Clubs and his career highlights to date.
"It all starts at places like this. The volunteers that come down and coach. The parents that give up time to coach the mini's on a Sunday morning in the wind and the rain. Its everything. Without Avon RFC, without that initial step in my rugby career, I would be nowhere."
Rugby’s values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship are what makes the game special for those who enjoy the environment and culture they create.
