Good numbers at first practice

Despite probably the worst snow of 2011 – Wednesday saw a fantastic turn out for both men and women, for the first indoor training session of the 2011 season.

Not hampered by a late start, the girl’s practice got underway with a total of 18 players, who under the direction of Jep, engaged in a hard but very fun practice session. It was great to see a good number of new faces added to the regular squad and we hope they enjoyed their first experience with the Club.

Similarly the men had great numbers for the first night, with around 30 lads showing up – at least 8 of which were new to the club. New head coach Ian Baillie led a fun but energetic session ensuring players worked up a good sweat in a good natured and competitive environment.

Again the Irish would like to welcome all the new players to the club and encourage anyone who has played or wants to play rugby, to come along and enjoy the sport and meet new people.


Practice will continue on Wednesday evenings.


Women 6:30 – 8:00pm

Men 8:00 – 9:30pm
