New season rugby

It is the start of a big season for Leicester Forest Rugby Club. England has recently become the world champions in the U20's and women's formats, with two ex-Leicester Forest players, Emily Scarratt and Vicky Fleetwood in the starting line-up that beat Canada in the final. The men's world cup will be held in 2015 at the end of this coming season. So with a great anticipation, the new local grassroots rugby season kicked off in September.

The Leicester Forest senior section started their season very strong with the 1st XV team winning their first two games against Peterborough and the Corby side Stewarts & Lloyds. They also got a well-deserved losing bonus point in their 3rd game away at Bedfordshire side Biggleswade. The 2nd XV and Colt teams have also been in action with the Colts beating Oadby Wyggestonians, Vippers and drawing with last year's county champions Market Harborough.

The Leicester Forest junior teams have been in action with some great performances and results to kick off the season for the U16 to U13 teams. All other age groups down to the U7's are due to play their first games of the new season in October. The club also caters for boys and girls starting at age 4 with an introduction to tag rugby, which is fantastic fun and very popular.

Leicester Forest is a family oriented rugby club, with RFU qualified coaches & first aiders. A great place to learn how to play rugby, have fun and make friends. So what a great time to come along and try rugby at all ages from seniors to age 4. You can find us at www.LeicesterForestRFC.com or email us at LeicesterForest@gmail.com for further details.
