Joe wins RFU "Young Volunteer" award

Congratulations to Joe who - much to his embarrasment maybe - has been awarded the RFU's "Young Volunteer" Award for his work with the girls' team.

Instead of a plaque or cup for the mantlepiece or cabinet what he actually wins is an "exclusive" Nike fleece, which he can be seen proudly modelling here.

The scheme - which was launched last year but without much publicity for some reason - allows the RFU to acknowledge and reward "outstanding young people who have not only made a significant contribution to their rugby community, but have also embarked on a pathway of personal development through their volunteering experience".

The award open to anyone aged 16-24 so it is quite possible that Joe will not be the only person connected with the girls' section to be wearing one of these tops. Indeed if any of you can think of anyone else deserving of similar recognition you can nominate them via an application form on the RFU website.

Meanwhile Joe had better get used to this sort of thing as this as I suspect that this will not be the only award he will ever win.

STOP PRESS: Joe's fame spreads...
