Remembering Don Spratling: March 11 @ The Rose

An Amazing Nomad has passed away

Many times when you attend funerals you will hear that he or she was well loved they will be missed or they can never be replaced… they never knew our Donald: He certainly cannot be replaced. Don was one of the best, if not the most creative, hookers to grace an Ontario pitch.  He used to hook the ball with his head! He will be missed.
– Roy Jones

Well into his rugby retirement, Don remained the life of the party, enlivening any gathering with his charm and enthusiasm. Let’s celebrate his life well lived with a few rounds raised to Sprats. A gathering will be held at The Rose and Crown on March 11 at 2:00 p.m. to toast the life of Don Spratling.
