We are very pleased to say that the first post covid training has begun at Rish with social distancing adhered to at all times. There was a great turnout for the first session. Anyone interested in being a part of our team is more than welcome to join us at Hollas Lane next Thursday at 7pm. Here's to the future
At present we do not have a date when rugby can start up again but as soon as the RFU give us the green light we will be in touch with everyone with a start date for mini and junior rugby. Any boys or girls interested in playing mini or junior rugby will be welcome to come down to the club and have a go at playing rugby. Whether you have played before or new to the game we have experienced qualified coaches to develop your skills.
We will be running teams from under 5s to under 18s and always looking for players to join our squads.
Just come down on a Sunday 10am - noon for some taster sessions or contact
