Norway Man. (and the President)

3 years ago By James McIntyre

.

“While most of us started a well-deserved break from rugby, Heathfield’s own Colt/U17 player Lars Thorkildsen was selected to play for Norway A (the national senior development squad) as a curtain raiser before Norway played Bulgaria. He had a great match, and the comments from the fellow forwards was “it was a bit strange in the beginning being bossed about by a 17 year old, but he was good and clearly knew what he was doing”.

Lars made his debut together with three of his fellow juniors (18-19), and with this he is the youngest player to have played in a senior national game for Norway. On the back of his performance Lars was also selected to play for the National 7’s development squad in Belgium.”

NB:
Meanwhile his dad (the mighty Per) modestly forgets to tell us that he himself has rapidly risen to become the President of the Norwegian Rugby federation. http://www.rugby.no/contact/styret/ .
With such quality guidance and play from Bexhill-on-Sea it is no coincidence that Norway are charging up the IRB world rankings……
