In the world of rugby, there is a special bond that connects players, supporters, and the grassroots community. Mark aims to celebrate and engage with grassroots rugby at its core. With a series of exciting events planned, this year promises to be a memorable one for both juniors and seniors, boys and girls, men and women involved in the sport.
One of the highlights of Mark’s testimonial year is a tour of local clubs. Mark, along with members of his playing squad and special guests, will visit various clubs to meet and connect with the stalwarts of the game. This not only provides an opportunity for Mark to express his gratitude but also allows him to interact with those who have dedicated their lives to the sport he loves.

Mark and his team have devised an exhilarating challenge to find the fastest young people in rugby throughout the county. Thanks to the support of their main sponsor, Zip, and merchandise sponsor, Oxen, this competition will be conducted across all Gloucestershire clubs who wish to take part . The goal is to discover the fastest juniors in rugby, and the finals will be held on the hallowed pitch at Kingsholm. More details regarding this competition will be revealed soon, but it is certain to capture the imagination of players and supporters alike.
