SAT 11-NOV: IRONSIDER DARRYL MARFO 1ST CAP FOR SCOTLANDIRONSIDER, DARRYL MARFO IMPRESSES GREGOR TOWNSEND AND STARTS FOR SCOTLAND IN THE AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS v SAMOA
Darryl Marfo joined Ironsides in 1998 as a U8 and played with us for 5 seasons before moving to London Welsh. His younger brother, Benji, also played for Ironsides.
Darryl was then recruited by Harlequins and remained there for 4 seasons, before moving to London Welsh.
He played at London Welsh for one and a half seasons then moved to Bath and is now with Edinburgh where he is now representing Scotland in the Internationals.
"Despite being coached by me for many years at Battersea Ironsides, he went on to become a great rugby player!
Those Samoans are a bit tasty and I'm glad it is him facing them rather than me!"
Darris Golinski, former coach
"My first contact (in U8s) with Darryl was his leg into my shoulder and I promptly flew several feet backwards.
For the next five years, he was our key player, equally at home at number 8 or inside centre, great at the breakdown and dangerous in attack, his mild manner off the pitch belying the controlled aggression on it.
It has been great following his career and I am now proud I can say I have played with an international player. Good luck Darryl!"
Louis Cotgrove, team mate
"The boys really enjoyed having the opportunity to meet some their hero and Darryl gave great feedback during the session.
All very inspirational!"
Richard Cotgrove, Youth Secretary
Darryl dropped in last season on a Tuesday night training session to deliver a scrum clinic
TOP MAN! Once an Ironsider, always an Ironsider!
"Played with him for a season or two at Richmond and Darryl is as much a true gentleman off the pitch as well as he is an established professional rugby player on it. Absolutely thrilled for him in success, in particular his first cap today!"
Colin O'Keeffe, Club Captain
