A rugby union revolution is ongoing in Gentofte. Barely a year into its existence, Gentofte Rugby Klub has seen the number of its members grow to over 100 representing 20 different nationalities, which makes it the biggest youth club in Denmark.

Most of the players are aged 6-14, but one day the club will hope to have teams representative of all the different school years.In the meantime, it is making a serious impact in the junior divisions.

Hundreds turned up at its special rugby day at Gentofte Sportspark on April 6 where many newcomers to the sport learned about the game.

Among those in attendance were Max Andersen (Canada/DK, under-8s);

Alex Turgis (France, u-14s), Matthew Keogh (Ireland, u-14s), Søren Søby Lund (DK, u-16s), Anton Goode (NZ/DK, u-12s – he’s on our team!) and Ryan McNeill (Northern Ireland, u-12s);

Callum Morrison (Scotland, u-8s);

Jemilla Lister (Australia, u-14s);

and Oscar Delany (England/DK, u-6s).

Turn up to training at 09:30 on Saturday or visit gentofterugbyklub.com to find out more.
