Galwegians Women’s Rugby presents


All seems to be hunky dory in the world of Irish Women’s Rugby at the moment. The national team is preparing for the forthcoming IRB Women’s World Cup in London, while the provincial teams are commencing their preparations for this year’s Interprovincial campaign, which will see the best players in the country fight for the national title over a four game series. The popularity of the women’s game is at a record high with over 2,000 players currently registered nationwide. Needless to say it will be hard to escape the growing focus on women’s rugby over the coming years – so why not join in?

Galwegians Women’s Rugby squad, Connacht’s largest women’s rugby club, launching its premier recruitment initiative next week in a bid to increase numbers for the forthcoming AIL season. The squad is therefore asking current squad members to BRING-A-BUDDY to club training next Thursday, 12th August. The concept of the BRING-A-BUDDY system is to invite new players to try the game for themselves in a commitment-free and fun environment, where at least half of the participants will be new to the game. However, anyone who may be interested in joining the team, or killing their curiosity, who have no links with the team, are more than welcome to attend.

The session will be under the auspices of strength and conditioning coach Emer O’Dowd, who takes the reigns again following her fantastic pre-season work last year, and will be followed by an informal gathering in the clubhouse.

The BRING-A-BUDDY session commences at 7pm.
