Welcome to the U-16 Youth Tackle Rugby Football Club.


Posted: 5/25/2017 12:05:49 PM
Due to the likely storms all day & evening, we are moving the U18/U16 practice to Rahway River Park and the Gazebo. We will conduct a "chalk talk" practice to go over game film and this upcoming weekend. If things clear up, then we can get in a walk thru out on the field. Dress appropriately. All players are required. For those that have already reached out to Coach Bill about prior obligations, no need to respond. Otherwise please let him know if you will not attend.
