Touch Rugby Season on the Horizon

posted on 13 January 2011

Following last year’s success the Wildcats are proud to announce that we will once again be hosting a touch tournament down at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, Belle Vue. This year sees an expanded competition with the scope for twice as many teams as last year, with the addition of two extra divisions that will see the touch season spanning 20 weeks in total.

 “Touch rugby is the fastest growing version of our great game and allows people from all abilities, ages, fitness levels and genders to take part in the sport we love. For the most part the game is very much the same as the full version of rugby league with a few modifications”.
