Dave Hobbs to step down as Vice-Chairman of Rhiwbina RFC


Rhiwbina RFC has experienced a monumental change in their Senior Section both on and off the field over the past decade. This includes promotions, cup wins, finals appearances, and significant player and coach development. In addition, the development of new infrastructure and improved facilities have also been realised.

During this period one man has been a significant leader of the process – David Hobbs.

The Vice Chairman has been a member for over 25 years and has been intrinsically linked to the club’s continuous improvement. This takes skill, knowledge, determination but also a serious amount of effort and time and, in Hobbsy’s case, a lot of bare-faced cheek!

Going forward, David has decided that he wants to take a step back from his current front-line rugby role and concentrate on other club activities, such as fundraising and continuing the #7-77 model. To this end, he is stepping down from his role as Vice Chairman of the Senior Section and will be taking up a new offline role on the Executive Team.

This will provide an optimisation of his time in other areas. From change comes opportunity and, in the near future, we hope to appoint an existing Club member or associate to continue the amazing work Dave has undertaken.

The Club wishes to recognise and thank Dave for the incredible work and dedication he has shown to Rhiwbina RFC as a volunteer over the last two decades and we are excited to see the impact he makes in his new areas of interest.

Thank you Hobbsy!
