Tuesday, 17 December 2013


Christmas is almost here and to celebrate in some kind of style The Crusaders will be playing a special Christmas fixture against our friends and rivals at Swansea Uplands.
On a bumper day of festive rugby at St. Helen's and Swansea Rugby Club, the Mumbles u12s will play New Dock at 10.30 with The Crusaders playing Uplands at 11.20
Food and festivities will then be available in the Swansea club for all involved.

We are paying for the pitch and changing room hire at St. Helen's out of funds, and are asking a small contribution towards the buffet of £5 per person from Mumbles and £5 per player from the opposition.
It should be a great day for the boys to be together and also for parents to chat about the joys of Christmas after the game.

If we can all get there by 10.30 that will give time to warm up and also take in a bit of u12s rugby

Times for the day:

Mumbles Crusaders arrive at St. Helen's: 10.30am
Mumbles u12s KO v New Dock: 10.30am
Mumbles u14s KO v Swansea Uplands: 11.20am
Food served in the club: 12.45pm

Don't forget your £5 a head for the buffet and also if anyone has any raffle prizes they could donate to help raise money for the tour email


Boys - if you don't know who the picture is = ask your parents!!! They all used to dress like this!
