Our dynamic openside flanker, Dawid Rubasniak, has been called up by Poland Rugby and is currently in camp in Warsaw, prior to Poland’s away game with the Netherlands in the Rugby Europe Trophy on Saturday. Dawid has previously represented Poland 7s and now looks set to gain full international honours. Everyone at ECP wishes him and his team mates ‘pob lwc’, ‘good luck’ and ‘powodzenia’.
It was with sadness that we heard that Horace Matthews one of our great former players has died, aged 94. One of the legendary Matthews family of Cwm who played for us in that great team of the 50s, Horace was an excellent, hard-as-granite back row forward. He represented Monmouthshire and played in the combined Ebbw Vale and Abertillery XV that played the New Zealand All Blacks. After his playing days ended, Horace served on the club committee for many years.
Our deepest sympathies go to Horace’s family.
