A MESSAGE FROM TDRU PRESIDENT - PETER CAVALLO

Dear Rugby Community

It is with regret that I wish to advise of the passing of TDRU development officer, Connor Morgan on Sunday morning.

Connor was not only a valued member of the TDRU, but also a player with the Brothers Rugby Union Club.

On behalf of the TDRU I wish to extend my condolences to Connor’s family, friends, workmates and team mates in what is a difficult time.
