Sam was an integral member of OURFC Touch, participating in the inaugural varsity match in 2018. Sam, before finals, almost never missed a training session. Those who knew him were touched by his kindness and genuine nature.
Sam, in many ways, exemplified what touch rugby is all about. Therefore, in memory of Sam, we have decided to dedicate an annual, end of season, award to the individual that season who has most displayed the “spirit of touch” – kindness, dedication and inclusivity.
The thoughts of everyone at OURFC are with Sam’s family and friends at this difficult time.
