Rams RFC CEO, Gary Reynolds, is ‘very excited’ at the prospect of Rams vs. Chinnor being live streamed for free by National League Rugby on Friday.

In a bid to raise the profile of National League rugby, the site has chosen to stream the game on its website and social media channels, alongside their usual National League Rugby Review Show.

Presenter Warren Muggleton will be joined by a punditry team of journalist Joe Harvey and Leeds Beckett University second-row John Okafor.

Meanwhile streaming service NextGenXV’s main commentator, Angus Savage, will provide the commentary alongside Talking Rugby Union's Chris Heal conducting interviews from pitchside throughout the evening.

Mr Reynolds believes it will be a scintillating watch on the field, and an exciting occasion off of it.

He said: “We are very excited.

“We’ve got the new floodlights in so it should provide a good spectacle.

“The game is always good against Chinnor but over the years we’ve tended to come off second best.

“These sides tend to really go at each other, it’s a good local derby and nobody will want to lose out.

“Chinnor are very well supported with a very vocal, loyal bunch of supporters and we have the same so there will be good numbers there and it should be a great atmosphere.”

Reading Chronicle:

With Premiership side London Irish having left Berkshire to return to London after 22 years, Rams are the highest-level rugby union side in the county.

Mr Reynolds believes that the stars may have aligned, and that Rams can ‘ride the wave’ up the rugby pyramid.

He continued: “We are passionate about Berkshire and rugby in the area, so we want to make sure there’s an opportunity for people who want to go and see high-class rugby.

“Support is building for us and that is what we want to kick on and eventually get into the Championship.

“We have likened it to the perfect wave.

“Things have gone our way and that is an advantage.

“You get up to our place and we’ve got good catering facilities, you’re not in massive numbers of people meaning you’re up close to the action and rubbing shoulders with the players.

“If someone comes down to us watching a game, they generally come back.”

The stream is available live here, on Facebook, YouTube and on Twitter.
