First Dreadnoughts Ring of Honour Inductees Announced


At the Annual Portsmouth Dreadnoughts Awards Night, Head Coach Luke Head-Rapson announced the first two inductees to the newly created ‘Ring of Honour’, recognising individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the team be that on or off the field.

Offensive Lineman Paul Hook and Linebacker Tom Bonser were inducted into the Ring of Honour, with both players having retired at the conclusion of the 2018 season. We spoke with both players about how they felt being part of the inaugural class of Honourees.

Paul Hook said “It’s a huge honour to be inducted into the Dreadnoughts Ring of Honour, a lot of good people have put a lot of time and energy into getting the club in the position it is today so to be recognised as such is really humbling”

Tom Bonser said “I feel extremely privileged to have been given this honour. I am extremely fortunate to have been part of this team for so long, played with some excellent players and been coached by an excellent coach. I retire knowing that this team has only just started to show what it can achieve and I look forward to seeing how far it can go”

The Club would like to thank both inductees for their years of service and look forward to seeing them on the sidelines supporting the team in 2019.
