Try Trinity scholarship

RUGBY in the D9 and D11 areas is taking massive leaps forward.

Three local secondary schools in the area, Trinity Comprehensive, St Kevin's and St Vincent's, are all competing in Leinster competitions, and now one of those schools -- Trinity -- is taking the next step in supporting rugby by creating their own rugby scholarship.

The idea of the scholarship is to encourage students to increase their rugby knowledge whilst also offering them increased academic opportunities.

Advantages will include extra weekly tuition to help their studies, extra rugby coaching sessions and trips to big provincial and international matches.
