The final Club Watch of February is here and as we approach the final two months of the season, let’s see what some of our National Leagues sides are up to…..
Sunday saw Caldy’s first training session for their Girls Age Grade Rugby. The club were delighted to say that they had a good turn out, but would still like to invite more 7-12 year-olds down to the club to play the game.
