Clifton Number 8 named after strong season whilst Brad Barnes named in NCA Top 48

Niall Gibbons has been named in Talking Rugby Unions ( team of the season following a number of strong performances. Gibbons signed in January from Stourbridge and made an immediate impact, with strong carries and high workmate giving Clifton's pack a real injection at the start of the second half of the season.

Gibbons is named in the starting team, whist there are honorary mentions for recently Clifton man Sam Goatley who has signed for Hartpury and Chris Rovery, currently in Canada.

NCA Rugby have been running down a list of their top 48 players in the National Leagues (Nat1,Nat 2South, Nat 2North) and Clifton fly-half Brad Barnes was included in the National 2 Team of the Year. Barnes has been prolific this season, before injury curtailed his season in February but he is on course to make the start of pre-seson.

Congratulations to both players on your fantastic achievements.
