Global Pass in New York City

On the evening of Thursday, December 7th, Rugbeians came together in New York City to be part of Rugby football's 200th Anniversary 'Global Pass' celebration. The symbolic pass was made adjacent to Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall between Will McCaw (W 00), Tom Chadwick (St 83), Chris Chalk (K 75) and James Whitcomb (SH 72).

The event is part of a series of 200 passes conducted around the world, all of which are being recorded to mark each year since William Webb Ellis took the ball in his arms and ran with it on The Close.
