I also remember being on Teaching Practice at Whitefriars in Cheltenham (with Fr Pat O’Keefe who did so much for rugby in the area).

What a utterly charming man Fr O’Keefe was. I expect many players who represented the County at colt level will remember him with fondness.
In those days you had to go through trials, Gloucester, Forest, Stroud and Cheltenham I think. Team talks were certainly different , Mike Nicholls at Gloucester, Fr O’Keefe at County. Both utterly passionate and knowledgeable.


I see Pat O’Keeffe regularly, I am sure he’ll be pleasantly surprised to be so fondly remembered. He has many a good tale about those days. I will let him know that he has not been forgotten.

Ahh Paady OKeefe and "Benny" Ablett at Whitefriars and an office so thick with cigarette smoke you could cut it with a knife!

Went to Whitefriars but only Junior. Ended up at Richies and couldn't understand why the majority of the First form hadn't played Rugby before.

Thomas Young re-signs at Wasps and therefore loses his Wales eligibility.

It is stated that it is a 'contract extension' so he retains his eligibility for Wales.

Was he offered a contract by a welsh region? If not then I am sure he remains eligible for Wales.

Wasps gain. Wouldn't mind them being the next Father and Son combo that turned up at Kingsholm! Unless we consider all the Welsh to be mercenaries as well :lol:
