What a Weekend of Rugby!!!

What a rugby weekend ahead, we start with the first game of the Rugby World Cup, France v All Blacks tonight, then Steve Borthwick’s England take on Argentina on Saturday night and to finish off on Sunday afternoon we have Scotland versus South Africa!!!! As you know all games will be shown 1888 Sports Bar & Café, get yourself along and soak up the atmosphere.
Our BRFC teams came away with 3 wins last week, which is fantastic and well done to all involved.
Our First XV sponsored by First Mortgage, took the spoils against Pontefract last week, battling away in the final 15 minutes with 14 players to secure the win. This weekend they are away to York RUFC, in what sounds like an excellent excuse for a day trip on the train, as York’s ground is a gentle stroll from the station.
We have a packed programme at Crowtrees over the weekend, with our Second XV taking on Morpeth Reivers in their opening game of the Candy League. The squad looks very good and get yourself along to support the lads, kick off 3pm on the AGP.
On Sunday we have our Under 16 and 18 Girl’s teams in action for the first time this season taking on Houghton and Whitley Bay Rockcliffe respectively, kick off 2pm.
Lastly our Blaydon Red Kites – Women’s Rugby Second XV are in friendly action away at Houghton taking on their Hornets side, which should be a competitive fixture.
Please try to get along and support our teams as they really do appreciate it. Enjoy your weekend.
