Mini Rugby News

The mini blitz in Ballina went ahead on Saturday for the under 7, 8’s and 9’s while Castlebar hosted the under 10, 11 and 12 teams. all teams had a good day despite the terrible weather conditions but full credit must go to everybody who braved the elements. Next weekend is the last training before Christmas with prizes, fun games and refreshments served afterwards. Parents as always are asked to come out and take part in the Christmas festivities. Training will resume on Saturday the fifth of January with a blitz in Carraroe the following Saturday.
