England rugby union ace and ex-Pocklington player Rob Webber returned to the town at the weekend to cheer on his former club.
Rob, who attended Pocklington School, gets home as often as possible to support Pocklington Rugby Club, despite spending the last ten years playing in the Premiership for London Wasps and now Bath.
His homecoming last Saturday became something of a Webber family reunion as other family members descended on Percy Road in the afternoon to catch up with Rob, who was also accompanied by his new fiancee, Lauren, and members of her family. And the Webber day was complete when elder brother, Mat, scored Pocklington’s second try in the 20-8 win over Bradford & Bingley.
