Bloggers’ Bench member Debs Knight visits London Irish’s Hazelwood training ground

Bloggers’ Bench member Debs Knight was impressed when she went to the opening of Hazelwood in November…

I turned up nice and early to discover a wonderful facility, writes Debs.  In place of what was a 9 hole golf course are rugby pitches as far as you can see; I counted 6 sets of posts; one of which is placed on a 4G surface.  Beyond the final set is an area big enough for mini-rugby to be played.
 

The morning was to be a very special one; Irish have moved from their old base at The Avenue, maybe a mile away from their new home.  Over the 79 years the club have been in situ many families have spread their loved ones ashes at The Avenue.  The club were clearly very mindful of the sensitivity of the move and the opening ceremony in effect started with what might be called a ‘closing ceremony’.
