RUGBY: He's not a bad guest!

Wiltshire Times: Lewis Moody gets stuck into the thick of the action against eventual winners Cardiff Lewis Moody gets stuck into the thick of the action against eventual winners Cardiff

BRADFORD on Avon pulled in some star quality for their sevens tournament last Sunday, with World Cup winner Lewis Moody donning the club’s black and red colours.

Moody, who helped England lift the 2003 tournament in Australia and captained his country in 2011 in New Zealand during a 71-cap international career, retired in 2012 having also played club rugby for Leicester and finally Bath.

The former Leicester and Bath man, 35, who lives in the town, said: “I promised Dave (George, Bradford’s head coach) and my brother-in-law (John King, who plays for the first team) I would have one runaround this year.

“Sevens seemed like it might be more suitable to my damaged body. I had a great day and the lads at Bradford were a great bunch.

“The day was brilliantly organised, but I think that may have been my debut and retirement for Bradford all in one go!’’ Cardiff won the cup competition, beating Walcot 43-17 in the final, with Trowbridge beating Chippenham 36-14 to win the Plate.
