Old Wesley RFC

teamNow that Katie Taylor has helped put women’s boxing on the map, Old Wesley RFC are planning the same for the oval ball game by launching Women’s and Girl’s Rugby!

It is our goal to cater for both experienced players and those who are new to the game. This is why we have put together a strong Management and Coaching set-up. Players who have played the game before will have their skills developed and those that are playing the game for the first time will be taught the basic skills of the game. The initial emphasis will be very much on getting fit, having fun and learning and developing the skills necessary to play and enjoy the game.

The club held a Club Open Day recently on Wednesday 5th September and it was a huge success. The infamous Donnybrook Stadium welcomed women and under-age girl players for the first time. Mixed tag matches were played and a great social night followed.

Women and girl’s rugby is a great way to get fit, meet new people and have the craic. Women’s rugby training takes place Monday evenings at 7pm in Donnybrook. We are also setting up U16 and U18 girls’ teams which will initially be based up in our Ballycorus grounds, where training takes place every Sunday at 12pm.

An exciting season ahead for Old Wesley with the launch of these women’s and girls’ teams. We look forward to welcoming players across all ages. For further details, contact Director of Women’s Rugby, Old Wesley RFC, Avril Poff.
