Policy Introduction :-


Strategy for Newbridge Rugby Football Club"To build a family, friendly, club atmosphere, one of support, respect, and pride in what we represent and to instil that ethos in all members, particularly the men and women who take to the pitch". 

The reputation of Newbridge Rugby Football Club (NRFC) is a valuable asset. We pay a heavy price if we do not keep the trust and confidence of our members, our sponsors, the rugby community, and the public generally. This handbook sets out the general principles that govern the way in which NRFC conducts its affairs. 

We, the Officers of NRFC, are the leaders of our Club, but the members are the custodians of our Club’s reputation. Your personal behaviour and the example you set moulds our culture. It is the responsibility of the Officers, Coaches, and Senior Players to lead by example in order to set the standards for our members.  

Together with our fellow Officers, we carry ultimate responsibility for the governance of NRFC. We rely on you to enable us to discharge this responsibility.


                                Mick McCoy   (Chairman)                               Fiona Nugent   (Hon. Secretary)

Club Policies

1. Child Welfare

Note - This policy is temporarily unavailable whilst it is being reviewed and updated by the IRFU.


By far the most important policy within our club is that which relates to the protection, development and treatment of our younger players. 


The IRFU has compiled a comprehensive Child Welfare Policy and associated documents to which Newbridge Rugby Football Club adheres. These can be found HERE and are also available on request from club officials along with other related documents the club produces as required from time to time. ​
