Rochford Hundred FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/RUGBYCLUBMAG Rochford Hundred RUGBY CLUB R ochford Hundred Rugby Club is based at The Rugby Park on Magnolia Road in Essex and their first team currently competes in London 2 North East. They are led by the team of Chair Peter van den Broeck and President Mike Drinkwater and the club is looking to progress under their guidance. Over the years the club has put together a history of which they have every right to be proud, having first been established in 1962 following the idea being discussed at the White Hart in Hawkwell in November 1961. The current group of players will be keen to add to their illustrious past over the coming years. 46 Issue 72 Their first team put together a solid campaign this time around, compiling a record of ten wins and twelve defeats from their twenty two matches. This saw them finish in a safe mid-table position with fifty seven points on the board. This should provide them with a good platform from which to build as they look ahead to their 2017-18 campaign. As long as they are able to retain their current group of players and can perhaps make three or four quality additions they should be in with a good chance of pushing on up the league. One of the highlights of the team’s performances this time around was the attacking brand of rugby that they were able to produce. This has been reflected by the fact that they racked up 571 points in the league alone at a rate of more than 25 per game.
