Women’s: Rugby Saturday’s are here!

Rugby Saturdays are here with the first friendly games having commenced on Saturday 11th October 2014. The games took off slightly different then what we are used to, with the first game being 3-a-side (3 vs 3) with each half lasting 3 minutes. The weeks will progress from 3 vs 3 to 5 vs 5  and finally 7 vs 7. Finally, on the 8th of November a National Training camp will be held. This is a great opportunity for the newbies to start out rugby!

This format has been used to give new inexperienced players the opportunity to get a feel for the game. In addition, no scrums or lineouts will be in play in favour of tap and go to make it easier for beginners to adjust to playing rugby, as well asfor safety reasons. The 3 vs 3 games consisted of 2 separate teams; the 0-3 years experience group and the 3+ years experience team. The teams played on a smaller pitch (25m x 40m) than usual.

We encourage you all to come and watch!
