Great Away League Win for Under 15s
Leinster League Youth competitions got underway on Saturday 15th October and our Under 13s & Under 15s were both playing away.
The Under 13s had a tough game in North.Kildare where both teams played some great rugby. Newbridge were behind by 2 points at half time 14~12. However in the second half North.Kildare pulled away to win by 31 pts to 17. Newbridge went close to scoring towards the end of the match but were kept out with strong tackling by the home side. A good experience for our team who will come back stringer next week.
Finishing strongly our Under 15s had a great win in Portarlington by 45 points to 24. A great result as an away win in Portarlington is not an easy thing to earn. Well done to ALL involved.
Newbridge's Under 17 Schools Youth team play at home on Sunday 16th October against Seapoint. Kick Off in Rosetown is at 12.00 noon.
Youth Training in Rosetown on Tuesday & Thursdays :-

Three matches in and Newbridge 1st XV are without a Leinster League win this season. They sit at the bottom of Division 2A with only 1 point and next Saturday evening, 22nd October, will face current league leaders Cill Dara away in Silken Thomas Park. A tough ask but this team has it within its capability to turn their poor start around and no better time to do it than on Saturday against our neighbours. Kick off is at 7.00pm. PLEASE SUPPORT
Our 2nd XV also have had a difficult start in their league with a draw away at Railway Union the best result to date. They also play Cill Dara away with a 5.30pm kick off on Saturday 22nd October. This game also doubles up as a 2nd Round Lalor Cup match.

Under 17 Schools Youths get League Points
Our Under 17 Schools Youth team gained their League points last Sunday, 16th October, as Seapoint arrived with insufficient players. Once we agreed on the points a friendly game was played with some of the Newbridge players volunteering to play for Seapoint. A good game followed with the Newbridge lads playing in Seapoint colours excelling. Nothing like getting a crack at your own team!
This coming weekend, 22nd and 23rd October, will be a busy one for the Newbridge Youth Teams.
On Saturday 22nd our Under 15 and Under 17 LL teams playing at home against Athy and Tullow respectively. Both matches kick off at 12.00 noon in Rosetown.
Then on Sunday 23rd Newbridge Under 13s and Under 14s take on visiting clubs from Lancashire and Cork. The Under 13s will play a round robin with Cork and Lancashire whilst the Under 14s will play Lancashire. Rugby in Rosetown starts at 12.00 noon.
Your support in Rosetown on both Saturday and Sunday will be welcomed as always by players and coaches.

During 2016 Newbridge RFC celebrate 20 years since its formation following the amalgamation of Old Kilcullen RFC and The Curragh RFC in 1996. Click HERE to find information on the club's history
Newbridge Rugby Club is holding a celebration to mark 20 years of the Club on Friday 14th October 2016 at 8.30pm. We would like to extend a welcome to this event to all our Newbridge Rugby Club members and partners and to the former members of the Curragh/Old Kilcullen Rugby Clubs.
Newbridge Rugby Club was founded in 1996. The amalgamation has proven to be most successful. Throughout these 20 years we have risen from Division 3 and have played for four years in the new structure of the Leinster League Division 1A. We also initiated a Women’s Team who won the Leinster League and were All Ireland Cup semi-finalists. We have developed the Clubhouse, drained the Pitches, updated floodlights to all pitches powered by a new generator. Our Under-Age playing population has flourished. We are currently in Division 2A where we have consolidated our position.
In our first outing in August 1996 we played Carlow here at the Green Road ground with Martin Donnelly captaining the side. We are marking the occasion on Friday 14th October 2016 at 8.30 pm. It will consist of a commemorative buffet function in the Clubhouse at Rosetown where the team of 1996 will be present.
Time has moved on and so has our Club. I am therefore asking you and your partner to make a special effort to be there to commemorate the 20-years of this magnificent and friendly Club. It will cost you €15 per person at the door. Please let Dave or Ollie know of your attendance by latest Wednesday 12th October 2016.
We are also updating our database and ask you to confirm, by Email, your First name and Surname and your mobile number.
