My name is Robert Hedderman and I am captain of the UCC Senior Rugby Squad for 2021/22,

I am a Masters Student in Law. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visiting teams in what has been a difficult start to the season.

We’ve had a bit of a slow start to this season with the stop-start nature of games and training but we feel we are finding our gears as we are getting used to each other as we have a lot of new players in the squad this season.

Restrictions has given players the opportunity to work on their individual game and get their bodies right for the games ahead. We will use this period as an opportunity for our development.

Safety procedures have been in place for us, players and management understand the seriousness of covid-19 and we are acting accordingly.

We are very excited as a squad for the games ahead and showing our full potential as a team on the pitch.

We appreciate all the support we have been getting from our families, supporters and coaches through this time and we hope we will show our full potential as a team once games start up again.

Kind Regards

Robert Hedderman
