This weekend three NLD teams need YOUR support as they bid to reach the National Final of their respective competitions.
On Saturday 9 April, Buxton RUFC play at home against Wetherby RUFC from the Northern Division with the winning team going through to the National Finals at Twickenham on 7 May. Buxton defeated Bedford Queens in the previous round to win the Midlands Division of the Junior Vase and win their first silverware of the season. Wetherby are currently top of Yorkshire 3 and like Buxton, are unbeaten in the leagues this season and will come together in arguably the biggest game in the history of both clubs.
Sunday 10th April at 2pm, Nottingham Corsairs RFC Colts play Havant RFC Colts in the semi-final of the National Colts Cup. The professional team at Nottingham Rugby has kindly provided their 1st team pitch at Lady Bay for this big game for the Corsairs lads. Undoubtedly Havant RFC Colts will provide some extremely tough opposition and a tight, high class game of rugby is anticipated.
Also on Sunday 10th April Newark RFC U15 Girls will play a three way tie to decide who will make it through to the Final in their National Semi Final. They play at Chesterfield RFC, kick off at 1.30pm. They will play Castleford (Yorkshire and NE Division winners) and Burnley West Park (NW Division winners) in a 3-way play-off to progress to the National Final against the winner of the Southern Area Final.
All are welcome to attend all matches so go along and support these teams as they bid to book their place in their respective National Finals!
