Over the festive break our lads played Naas in the final of the Hosie Cup in Portlaoise. Having held Naas tight, even leading in a close contest in the first half, Naas pulled clear in the second half to win 39 - 16. Congrats to a strong Naas side on their Hosie Cup win. Massive respect to all the Newbridge players for coming such a long way in just 12 months. You did the club proud.

Works are well and truly underway in Rosetown.
The Portacabin we have been using as dressing rooms in recent years have been moved from the side of the clubhouse, to the rear as they will stilll be needed during construction phase. The inside of Clubhouse is also under renovation. Building work for 2 new dressing rooms, a disability room, a referees room and new showers begins on Wednesday next. Here's a quick glimpse of the work in progress. Please remember to support the works by buying a brick using the links below.
Remember - MINI's Training for Boys and Girls from Under 6 to Under 12 every Saturday morning in Rosetown from 10.0am. Come out and give it a TRY! New members are always welcome.
If any parents are keen to get involved on the coaching side, please email us on email@example.com or text Enda on 086-2597214 or Neil on 086-3420220 .
We are delighted to report that the clubhouse development works are now complete. Huge thanks to all everyone involved in managing the project and also those who have assisted in the fundraising efforts to date. Our compliments and praise to the contractors and tradespeople for the excellent standards of workmanship and professionalism.
We have renovated the Clubhouse to the extent that 2 of the old Dressing Rooms are now the Weights Room which is fully equipped. Also, we have stripped the other 2 Dressing Rooms and the Showers and re-designed them. They will be the Visitors Dressing Rooms and shower area.
We have added a new development onto the Clubhouse consisting of 2 new Dressing Rooms, a Disability Room, a Referees Room and a new Shower area. The 2 new Dressing Rooms are for our Firsts and Seconds teams and all our under-age teams and all Club Members.
The Pitch lights were not in good working order for a few weeks but now they are fully up and running again. A new fence has been erected around the front Car Park and it gives our facility a much better look. A new Effluent System has been installed just off the Car Park and beside the Training Pitch. This was a compulsory requirement by Kildare County Council in our Planning Permission. An earthen bank has been built up beside it and Members and Parents are requested not to walk on it until it is grassed in the Spring.
Work will be completed next week on the lighting which is set on timers and will be automatic. Also, the Plumber has finished his work and will be back to deal with any problems next week. We have submitted a list of signs for all areas of the Clubhouse and will put them us as soon as they are available. The painting of the whole renovated and developed areas will take place in the first week of February, the reason being that we want to let the plastered areas dry out fully.
The 2 Portacabins have been moved to the pitch side of the Clubhouse and are being used for all Rugby equipment and with the other one for Club furniture.
All Club Members are reminded that the entrance to the pitches, should we require an Ambulance, is through the eastern side of the Clubhouse. It is therefore very important therefore to keep this area clear of vehicles.
The Club will be implementing a new policy of NOT wearing BOOTS in the Clubhouse. Benches for changing footwear have now been provided for all players outside the entrances.
We are very conscious of security to the Clubhouse. We have reinforced a number of entrances and have taken other security measures. So, we would ask members to be conscious of this and to ensure that entrances are not left open when the building is unoccupied.
Newbridge Senior training will takes place every Wednesday and Friday at 7:30pm in Rosetown. The Senior 3rd XV train on Wednesdays in Rosetown, also at 7:30pm. We are always on the lookout for new additions and would encourage anyone interested in joining up to contact our Facebook page or drop out any training night to give it a go.
If you or anyone you know is interested in playing rugby and joining a girls rugby team then come out to Rosetown to learn more. You can also contact our Girls Rugby Co-ordinator Paul Treacey at 086 2624073.

We had a convincing win against New Ross under the lights in Rosetown on Friday, 2nd February. Well done lads on a great result. Full match report HERE.
With works underway in Rosetown, we're really fortunate to have use of the Curragh Rugby Grounds for training. For anyone not familiar with the location, coming from Newbridge travelling out the Green Road, when you reach Lumville Cross, go straight through the junction, and continue towards the Curragh Camp. After 400 metres the rugby grounds are on the right-hand side. In the interests of safety please refrain from parking on the main road. You can access the car park by turning right immediately after the pitch, and right again!
During 2018/19 season Newbridge RFC is being sponsored by a number of organisations including :-

A big Thank You to everyone who has supported this important fundraiser for the club so far. We are already using the new facilities but there is still a substantial amount of work to be completed, and we will be notifying everyone about our plans for an official opening of the new extension, complete with all our new Bricks!
Build a Brick has been vital in contributing to the cost of the works and there have been a few late inquiries so we have agreed to leave this fundraiser open for another short period of time. Details available HERE.
A range of Newbridge RFC club gear is available locally at our club retail partners G Sports Newbridge. G Sports is located at Langton Cross, just across from McLoughlin Oil. Customer parking is available at the rear of the premises. You can contact Andy Grovesoves and his staff on (045) 437 579 .
