Sunday's Well RFC hosted a repeat of the 2015 inaugural Mixed Ability Rugby World Final between Sunday's Well Rebels and Bradford & Bingley Bumblebee Barbarians last weekend.

The former champions are now entering their fifth season and were delighted to welcome the first English mixed ability rugby side onto Irish soil with the match finishing up 31-22 in favour of the home side.

The fixture acted as a curtain-raiser to the All-Ireland League meeting between Sunday's Well and Dungannon RFC, which the Well won 20-8.

Your chance to honour top volunteers

The Munster Rugby Volunteer Recognition Programme rewards people working hard behind the scenes within clubs and schools.

The programme will honour monthly winners from October 2018 to March 2019 with a 'Volunteer of the Month' award, gift voucher and hospitality package for two including tickets to a Munster home game.

The programme is open to anyone associated with rugby in Munster, in a non-paid capacity within a club, school, college, university or associated affiliate of the branch.

Kerry clubs get lessons in four 'cornerstones'

The Munster Rugby Development Department recently hosted two workshops in West Munster at Killarney RFC and Tralee RFC.

The workshops focused on the key skills of the game and highlighted the four cornerstones of catch and pass, decision-making, continuity, and tackle technique / defence.

Members of the Munster Rugby Development Department, including Fiach O'Loughlin, Ray Gadsden and Euan Gee, hosted the workshops with the help of Killarney's Tom O'Leary and Tralee's Simon Keating.

Cornerstone workshops will continue to run across the province throughout the season, please email info@munsterrugby.ie for further information.
