THE Ipswich YM RUFC U12s enjoyed a ruck and tackle session delivered by highly accomplished and regarded Level 3 coach Martin Watson, recently.

He coached Freddie Burns, the current Gloucester and England Saxons flyhalf from the age of 12 to 17.

Very kindly, Freddie signed and had framed one of his England shirts, together with a personal message wishing all at Ipswich YM RUFC’s Youth & Junior Section the very best for their future together.

This was given to the club by Martin and presented YM’s under-12s players and coach Steve Beazley, after the club’s Act of Remembrance on Sunday, to YM president Dick Daniels, chairman and EC President Harry Moore and ex-RFU President Brian Williams.
