As many of you know, the days following The Hull Roundheads RUFC kit launch has prompted a lot of media attention and coverage for us – all in reaction to some stupid but sadly typical homophobic trolling. The most recent and brilliant piece about it all appeared on SkySports to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
To thank all of our IGR brothers-in-scrums for the terrific support and love they’ve shown since we formed, we want to invite any and every team that can make it to join us at our first birthday celebrations, on August 31st, in the very first Humber 10s tournament. We’ve seen huge support from the local rugby community in our region too, and we want this event to bring together players from different communities, near and far, to demonstrate the true meaning of inclusivity in rugby and to demonstrate our unity against homophobia in sport.
If you can make it, we’d love to have you here (and show you a little of why this place became UK City of Culture too). So to register your interest, or just to get more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on the Hull Roundhead Facebook page.
With huge love and pride,
Chair of the Hull Roundheads
