Matt Ratana


It is with deep sadness that we have heard of the tragic death of Sergeant Matt Ratana whilst on duty for the Met Police.

During his time at Worthing RFC, as a coach for the Azurians & Knights, he dedicated himself fully to the role and supported players both on and off the pitch.

Matt’s passion and dedication to rugby was always at the forefront of his coaching and nothing was too much trouble.

He was funny, energetic and inspirational and the rugby community has lost a great man.

Our deepest sympathy and thoughts go out to his family, friends and colleagues at this devastating time.
