So, I'd like to say deep thanks to all of you.
It was really prescious memories for me to play rugby and to know many people through rugby.
As I mentioned in the banquet, the next season will be led by the new captain, Yoshi Ihaya!

I got a few messages from him.
"Don't under-estimate me! The important thing is not the size, but the way I use it!!"
Now you know that he'll lead us to the next successful season for sure!
Lastly, thank you very much! Have a good summer holiday!
Hip, hip,

われらがキャプテン金田さん 所信表明演説 (Captain Kanada's Keynote Address)

09/10シーズンのキャプテンを努めさせていただく金田容秀(かねだひろし)と申します。

私は在英1年で今年この大役に抜擢されましたが、London Japanese RFC(ロンジャパ)の持つ魅力をみんなで分かち合い私もその一人として楽しめるシーズンを作り上げていきたいと思います。

私は昨年一人でロンドンに来た時、今でもそうですが拙い英語を駆使しながらも不安と迷いが渦巻く中でこの「ロンジャパ」に出会いました。

10年ほど遠ざかっていたラグビーをplayする楽しさを改めて教わり、またラグビー以外でも色々と楽しい時間を共有できて、困った時には相談に乗ってもらったり助けてもらったりする、まさしく「ロンジャパ」は楽しめて頼りにできる一つのコミュニティーであるのだと知りました。

現在のロンジャパは、在英メンバーで下は16歳から上は48歳?(もしくはそれ以上?)の幅広い年齢層と、日本人のみならず昨年ぐらいからメンバーの半分近くはイギリス・南アフリカ・オランダ・カナダ・エチオピア・中国人とグローバルな部分も広がり、そして今までのようにメンバーの家族や友人達といった多くのサポーターたちも試合やイベントには参加している大きなチームになりました。

とはいえ今年度のチームとしても『ロンジャパの原点である「日本人を中心としながら誰でもが参加しやすい雰囲気とその繋がり」を基に、インターナショナルな部分にも触れながらラグビーを通して幅広い出会いと時間を楽しむ』という事をテーマに掲げたいと思います。

今後も素晴らしいチームを目指していく上で、その1シーズンを支えられたらと思っています。

興味のある方や迷われてる方がいましたら、私がそうであったように気軽に声をかけてもらい、そしてみなさんの参加を心から待っています。

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am honoured to be selected as captain of London-Japanese RFC for the 2009/2010 season. Even though I am inexperienced for this role, I will do my best throughout the season. Lon-Japa (London-Japanese RFC) is the most active and welcoming community that I have experienced in London. We spend a lot of memorable time not only playing rugby matches and training, but also on social activities such as dinners, rugby tours, and of course drinking! Furthermore Lon-Japa has a great number of players as well as family and friends, which include many non-Japanese. Therefore we have excellent opportunities for cultural exchange each other through rugby. If you are interested in rugby, Japan or anything about Japanese culture, please do not hesitate to contact us. Let’s all enjoy rugby and cultural exchange together!
