Gym to the Ring for two local rugby players

Two rugby players will face each other as part of the Gym to the Ring programme.

On Saturday, 26 local people will have concluded their Gym to the Ring journey, culminating with a fight at Whitchurch Sports Centre in Bristol.

The training began in September which has been managed by professional boxers and experienced coaches. The journey has tested the candidates to the full, and it is an experience they will never forget.

One local contest will be two local rugby lads, Tony Dauncey, former first team prop from Clevedon Rugby Club, will line up against Tony Bush of Weston Rugby Club, who is still playing and managing the Weston Wanderers side.

Bush is celebrating his 50th birthday and raising money for the Clarity Charity and Dauncey is using this experience to aid the serious injuries he has sustained to his knee and neck through sport.
