On Friday night members of the Rhinos Youth Teams joined first team players Peter LeMarquand and Adam Cook at Colchester Zoo to meet children from local hospitals and children hospices. Following the success of The Call of the Wild Cup, the Rhinos continued their collaboration with Colchester Zoo when they accepted an invitation to talk to the Children and demonstrate some basic rugby skill as part of an evening when the children and their families are invited to tour the zoo in the evening.
Organiser Jez Smith wrote “ a huge Thank You for your efforts on Dreamnight last Friday. Despite the problems with traffic on the A12, the night was a huge success, and the efforts of your team were a contributing factor to that success. Your guys were very professional and really did add a bit of ‘something different’ to the evening. Please pass on our thanks and I wish them every success with the games and the cup run. I look forward to working with you again perhaps over special senses day, and hopefully I may make it along to match day sometime soon. “
Club Chairman Kevin Cook would like to thank those who took part. “ it was good to see that the young players see the club as something more than just playing on a Saturday but also very important for them to realise that there are many children who are unable to enjoy an exciting sport such as Rugby League.”
