Senior Cup Rugby Returns this weekend

It has been along time coming but senior rugby for both the men and ladies, returns this weekend with the start of the NLD Cup competition.

NLD have been working hard behind the scenes to organise a structured competition to involve as many clubs and as many players as possible at the end of a non-existent season for the community game.

The coaching staff at West Bridgford RFC have decided to enter two mens teams into the 1st XV competition, namely “The Black Stallions” & “The Golden Dragons”.

Head coach – Gareth Kerr commented “Our view is to get as many of our club players back playing competitive rugby and more importantly will give a good number of our 2nd & 3rd XV players a taste of 1st XV rugby. This can only be a benefit for them with their personal development and the club when we return to full league rugby in September”.

The 1st XV leagues will comprise 2 leagues of 4 teams: Dronfield RFC, Long Eaton RFC, Leicester Forest RFC, Newark RFC, Scunthorpe RFC (2 teams – Green & Black ) & West Bridgford RFC (2 teams – Black Stallions & Golden Dragons)

It all kicks off this Saturday with The WBRFC Black Stallions v Dronfield RFC playing their home fixture down at our neighbours ground, Nottingham Moderns RFC with KO at 2.30pm.

The WBRFC Golden Dragons travel away to play Scunthorpe RFC.

The ladies also return to rugby and is the first competitive game since the new coaching team duo of Sam Bignall & Pierre Byworth took control.

Sam commented “Pierre and I have been delighted with the enthusiasm that the ladies have shown in training and we are really excited to see how they put their new skills into action this Sunday”

The West Bridgford Ladies also travel away on Sunday to Long Eaton RFC
