Kiwi Bell

In the mid- 1980’s, the Club Captain was a New Zealander, Chris Allen. When he was leaving the UK to return to NZ, he presented a Bell to the Club for the Top Try Scorer of the season and it has been referred to as “The Kiwi Bell” ever since.

The bell itself has had a checkered history, the original being kidnapped by another Kiwi returnee (Owen Nisbett) and a replacement duly purchased and engraved. This was then lost after a particularly heavy Dinner & Dance and another commissioned whereupon the original re-appeared; (this event miraculously coinciding with the arrival of Mr Nisbett back in these shores !).

We now have a couple of bells, the original is in Doc Crosby’s strongroom and only allowed out on High Days and Club Anniversaries, the other one is presented annually to the Top Try-Scorer who must drink something awful out of it then return it to the Club for safe-keeping (!).
