Newbridge RFC was formed after the amalgamation of neighbouring clubs, Curragh RFC and Old Kilcullen RFC, in June 1996. Both clubs had seen their membership diminish and so a new future was born. Newbridge has now seen a major influx of under-age players (male and female) and the success of their senior adult players together with the renovation and addition to the clubhouse have brought a whole new transition of this rugby club. A friendly and outgoing club is there to be enjoyed.
Cathal Bannon is the club head coach. He started his coaching with Portarlington at youths level in 2010 before being made the forwards coach for their Senior team in 2015-16. He then started with the North Midlands in 2017 with the u16s squads. He have been involved with Newbridge College for the last 2 years with the JCT as forwards coach. Currently involved with the u17s Leinster schools development squads as well as being scrum coach with the u18s schools squad.
Robbie is our assistant player coach for the Senior mens side. Robbie left Newbridge in 2013 to play Senior rugby with Navan RFC helping them to back to back promotions. He then took up the assistant coach role in North Kildare before returning to Rosetown this season.
Eoin Carey is the J2 Forwards Coach. Eoin is currently out of the game through injury and has taken on the role as J2 forwards coach.
Fergal Doyle is the J2 Backs Coach. Fergal is also captain on the J2s but his performances on the pitch have made him an important part of the 1XV.
Evan is our J3 coach and video Analysis for the Senior 1sts. Evan is also known for his “EK Rugby Analysis” Twitter page and has over 10k followers. He is a vital cog for our Senior J1 side and is also coach for our ever improving J3 side.
Tony brings a wealth of experience to this role and adds a great deal to this ever improving J3 outfit. Prone to the odd appearance on the pitch himself!
