Prospective Players

No experience is required to join the club as TRFC welcomes all who want to play rugby. Dress weather appropriate as well as having cleats with no toe studs. A mouth guard would be a bonus! We will practice on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 5pm and as the days grow longer the start time will adjust. We understand people get off of work at 5pm so don't let that keep you from coming out! Being late is better than not being there at all. See you on the pitch!
