There are a set of guidelines issued by the WRU regarding junior rugby which are always on The Crusaders website and are available to read here

End of Season Timetable

As the end of the season draws near, all the boys are busy catching up with football fixtures, playing school rugby and school training, with district training now thrown into the mix.
Looking at the amount of training and games taking place mid-week that would be in addition to Mumbles training, the coaches have decided that the best way to fulfil our rugby fixture commitments on the weekends is to not train again mid-week before the end of the season.

We have a few fixtures left to play on Sundays, so keep an eye on Teamer for invites. There are also a few options being investigated that will hopefully lead to some great fixtures before we finish the season, which once again seems to have flown by.

A lovely Sunday of flowers and meals with Mums this weekend, then a fixture against our friends at Pontardawe on 6th  April.
