Alan Butcher, RFU Council Member representing Sussex, presented Haywards Heath Rugby Club with a plaque thanking the Club for their involvement in the success of Joe Marler, current England and Harlequins front row who has amassed 42 caps playing for his country.

Joe visited the Club along with Luke Wallace, Ross Chisholm and James Chisholm - all ex-Heath and current professionals at Harlequins – a couple of years back for a special Q&A session with Club members and he has always recognised the contribution Heath made to his rugby career during his teenage years.
