Rugby World Cup:

As a club, we want all our members to embrace the spirit of the Rugby World Cup. While many of the high-profile matches will be late at night, which may not be ideal for our younger members, there are also several games scheduled for earlier times. We encourage our players to join us alongside their parents in showing support for all the teams as a united community. Last Saturday several families came out to enjoy the Italy-Namibia match and we are looking at options to organize another get-together in the coming weeks so that we can watch another match together.
