Brice Sililo Signs With Hyeres Carqueiranne

Young French centre Brice Sililo has signed with Hyeres Carqueiranne for the 2014/15 season.

The talented and versatile back who can cover both centre and wing comes to RCHCC having spent the last two seasons with Le Parc in the ProD2 and Federal 1.

Still only 22, Brice is known for his hard running and hitting style of play and his experience in the ProD2,  whilst only 20 at the time shows he has enormous potential. He joins the highly ambitious RCHCC  who are coming off a strong 2013/14 season which saw them secure promotion to federal 1.

We wish Brice all the best for the season ahead.

Ben Cooper Signs With Coventry RFC

Young flyhalf Ben Cooper has signed on with National 1 powerhouse Coventry for the 2014/15 season.

The silky playmaker has had a strong couple of seasons which saw him earn back to back years with the Scotland under 20s. This last season also saw Ben play his club rugby at Boroughmuir in Scotland who were crowned champions and promoted to the RBS Premier 1 for next season.

When the opportunity came to join Coventry Ben jumped. “It was a chance to join a strong, ambitious club and I’m really looking forward to knuckling down and working hard to get a starting spot”.

We wish Ben all the best for the season ahead as Coventry push for promotion.
