The regional rugby continues this weekend as two teams from each region head to Gala.

Head of Pathways John Fletcher said: “It was great to see two great games with all of the regions really going for it on both sides of the ball.

“We were really happy to see a lot of what the coaches have been working on with the players coming to life on the pitch.

“Next week in Gala provides an opportunity for more players to represent their region, which is great as we look to expose more players to that level of rugby.”
