Surrey Rugby extend commiserations to the people of France and to our co-equipiers in the Rugby family who have seen a dreadful terrorist attack on their way of life, including sporting events. Many clubs across Surrey and observed a silence before their games over the weekend, in order to pay tribute to those who were needlessly killed, and express deep sympathy.
Only 6 days before that the rugby fields across Britain fell silent in memory of the Armistice celebrations, as we taught our youngsters that sadness and death go hand in hand with conflict.
If we could apply the Core Values of rugby to all of life, we would have a profile to reduce intolerance and promote understanding between people.
