RUGBY CONNECTION

Local legend says a young William Webb-Ellis visited his clergyman uncle in Hallaton one Easter. He watched a Bottle Kicking match and took the basics back to his school in Rugby, creating the modern game of rugby.

The rugby ball also mimics the shape of the small beer keg ‘bottle’ used in Bottle Kicking.
