Play Rugby blitz goes down storm

A total of 10 teams consisting of 120 players from surrounding schools took part in a Play Rugby Blitz at Charleville RFC.

Pupils from Dromina, Kilmallock, Milford, Ballyagran and Newtownshandrum national schools took part in what was their first tag rugby event.

The players received their Play Rugby packs from Munster Rugby/Cork Sports Partnership which consisted of rugby balls, cones, tag belts, tags, bibs and a Play Rugby guide to tag rugby to assist school teachers in running future tag rugby events in their schools.

Play Rugby is an introduction to tag rugby in national schools for boys and girls and it is hoped participants will progress to youths rugby at their local club.
