RHINO SUPPORTING RUGBY IN IRAN THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES
Earlier this year Rhino was put in touch with Teheran RFC by former Cambridge University captain and current Commercial Manager Stewart Eru and we were delighted to be able to supply the club with some second hand equipment, including contact equipment formerly used by the England squad. President Charles Wyley together with coach Idin Norashemi have been instrumental in developing the game in Iran at grass roots level at a time of falling expatriate numbers and TRFC competed once more in the recent Dubai Sevens International Social competition, with their achievements being highlighted in the tournament programme. Unfortunately, their efforts have been put on hold during the recent political upheavals – particularly as there is no current access to their training ground and equipment store in the British Embassy compound in Teheran. We congratulate Charles and his members for their pioneering efforts and wish them well in the current difficult circumstances facing the club.
