This Saturday sees our Western Province Women’s Rugby trials roll out at City Park, with women players nominated by clubs to attend. The trials, hosted at City Park, begin at 11:00, with registration starting at 10:00. This comes after requesting women player nominations from our clubs not only for the trials but also to add to our ever-growing Women’s Rugby database. Any clubs who still need to pass on the registration form or women players who still need to register can click here.

Additional highlights for City Park this weekend include our DHL WP Rugby Women’s side against the Golden Lions Women’s side at 13:00. This presents a fantastic day of entertainment on the women’s front, as trial participants will then get to watch the team they aspire to play in.

Our next coaching course is the World Rugby Level 1 for Fifteens coaching course at Newlands. This course is a great way to get into rugby and is an entry-level course.
