Newbridge Rugby Club held its Family Fun Day on Saturday 9th September in Rosetown. As a preamble to the day, the Mini's season kicked with their usual 10.00am session, with the Fun Day getting underway at 12 noon. Also during the morning was an enjoyable "Try Rugby" event for boys and girls wishing to give the game a go for the first time.
The rain held off for most of the day, making the Bouncing Castles a big hit. Newbridge Girls put on a great display against Naas, despite being hit by one of the day's nastier showers, while Newbridge's Under 17s also put on a great show against a strong Cill Dara side.
There was a brisk trade all day at the BBQ, where Sharon Commane was ably assisted by the lesser known but equally popular Commane brother Ciaran, who was inundated with requests for free hotdogs and burgers from his friends in the Patricians!
Special thanks to Tracy McMullen who was kept busy processing registrations from new and existing members. If you have paid your subscription already THANK YOU, but if you haven't please remember to pay your online - ClickHERE.
Andrew from G-Sports was also on-hand in the club house, with a full display of our official club gear. He was also kept busy with fittings, sales and pre-orders. If you missed him on the day just call to his shop at Langton Cross, Newbridge or you can order onlineHERE .
A word of thanks also to our Barista supreme Paul Treacy who obliged once again and kept us topped up with the finest coffees and Tea. Also well done to Kerry Browne and her friend Emma, TY Students from Thurles Presentation College, who manned a stand raising funds for the Hope Foundation. They are off shortly to India on voluntary work.
Hearty praise to all the organisers, coaches and players for their involvement, but especially those involved in the Hosie Cup Blitz, which was a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining display of rugby. The spectators enjoyed it immensely and it augers very well for the forthcoming season

On Saturday 23rd September Newbridge Under 18s scored an emphatic away victory in their second match in the North Midlands Area Under 18 Premier Section A league. Newbridge travelled to Clondalkin and scored 58 unanswered points. The visitors put on a tremendous display of handling skills and teamwork. They also showed great discipline and ruthless determination to keep the opposition scoreless. Newbridge fielded a reduced squad due to absence and injury playing the match with one player less than the home side. The match saw a great debut from Peter O'Neill. Well done to all of the players and their hard working coaches Liam and Paddy.
