Rhiwbina Squirrels make history

Rhiwbina Squirrels

While several rugby clubs face problems even fielding one side on some Saturdays, Rhiwbina RFC created their own piece of history on Saturday 17th February when they fielded four senior sides and a Youth team.

One of the club’s aims is to make rugby accessible to all players at all levels, and this includes the club’s highly successful Mini & Junior section which fields teams from Under 6s to Under 16s. Club Chairman Ian Hall said:

“Our team of exceptionally dedicated volunteer helpers and coaches ensure that organised rugby is available to hundreds of players every weekend. I’m fairly confident in saying that Rhiwbina was the only club in Wales to field four senior teams this weekend – a remarkable achievement.”

For the record, the results of the five teams were:

Rhiwbina 1st XV 31 St Joseph’s 1st XV 19                  Division One East Central

Rhiwbina 2nd XV 42 Pill Harriers 2nd XV 29               WRU Conference

Llanishen 2nd XV 14 Rhiwbina 3rd XV 15                    Cardiff & District Premier Div

Rhiwbina 4th XV 21 Pontyclun 2nd XV 25                   Cardiff & District Div 1

Llanishen Youth 42 Rhiwbina Youth 53                    Youth League
