Junior Girls Rugby

It’s our mission to build all girls grades and competitions in club rugby - providing an enjoyable and safe environment for girls involved in rugby to develop a lifelong love by giving them an opportunity to learn, participate and grow.

To kick this off in 2021 we launched an all-girls rugby competition on Wednesday evenings. Our first year had a fantastic turnout and we are committed to keeping up the momentum in this space. Get in touch with your club or email Annette today to get involved in this great initiative!
