New South Dorset Rugby Partnership Aims to Improve Players


8:09am 31st December 2013

There's a bid to boost rugby on Portland.

Portland Academy's PE department has gone into partnership with Weymouth rugby club, by setting up a coaching base.

Students will be transported to the rugby club  with four students also acting as ambassadors for the club.

Chris Davis from Weymouth RFC says they'll also be putting on a series of sporting and fitness sessions open to all in the lighter evenings and denies it's a scheme to pick off the best rugby talent from the school to boost their own playing team.

Anyone interested in signing up to get fit with Weymouth RFC can contact Chris on 07576 129254.

(NB he has given me the OK to put his mobile number on our website)
