New Season Details

Here is all the info for the upcoming start of the season.

Friday 27th August. Training at Underhill 5:00.

Saturday 28th August. Family fun day at Underhill Park
. This Saturday, the club has organised an event for the junior section on the eve of the Cracker 7s tournament. Unfortunately we could not organise a match for the Crusaders, but everyone is welcome to come along for the fun of it. There will be BBQ, games, and you can support some of the other age-groups who will be playing matches. The event will take place from 2-5 in the afternoon. Just to be clear, there is no formal event for the Crusaders, but everyone is welcome to go along, kick a ball around and enjoy.

Members of the first XV will run the BBQ and offer coaching clinics, kicking competition, tug of war. The Vikings will be playing Gowerton in a tag match at about 3:00. And there will be star guests from the Ospreys!

Friday 3rd September: Training at Underhill 5:00.

Sunday 5th September: Match vs Loughor. At home, Bishopston sports field. Meet at 10:00 on the dot for a little practice before the match.

  • Uncontested Lineout (no catch and drive)
  • Only 1 player from either side can contest for the ball in addition to the tackler and tackled player.
