On Saturday 16th September there was a solid performance from Newbridge Under 18s away to a strong North Kildare team The match was the opening encounter of the North Midlands Area Under 18 Premier Section A league. Newbridge, who the previous week had won the Area Under 18 Blitz, got off to a slow start conceding a number of early scores. The visitors then took the game to the opposition dominating possession and try count for remainder of match. Unfortunately this was not enough with North Kildare running out victors by 31 pts to 17. Never the less this was much for the Newbridge players to be proud of and the right potential is being display to hint of a good season to come. A number of Under 17 players had a run out and all gave a great display. Newbridge Under 18s are coached by former Newbridge 1st XV player Liam Heavey and current player Paddy Commane, Finally thank you to Michelle Sharkey of Game On Photos for the match pictures.

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!
