‘PopUP Rugby’ – This Wednesday!

‘PopUP Rugby’ is a new concept from New Zealand which is being introduced to Cornwall.

The inaugural event takes place at Penryn RFC this Wednesday 13th March (ko 6.45pm).

On Wednesday it will be a game of 4 x 15 minutes quarters for lads under 20. The competing teams are ‘Chiverton Casuals’ (St. Agnes, Perranporth, Newquay & Others) and ‘Ponsharden Penguins’ (Penryn/Falmouth & Others).

The rules for PopUP Rugby can change between Challenges – so, if Ponsharden Penguins are successful they set the rules next time. The rules cover (1) Sex of players, (2) Age Group, (3) Length of Game, (4) Time/Place. Next time, just for example, it could be Women’s over 35 to be played on a Tuesday afternoon.

If you want to play, even if you belong to a different club (Pirates/Hayle/Redruth or whoever), then no worries – just contact the two team managers. They are Dave Levick for Ponsharden Penguins – m 07932 714381 email [email protected] and Giles Hirst (Chiverton Casuals) – m 07968 117160 [email protected]

Colin Groves, Chairman of Waikato Rugby in New Zealand and a Director of the Cornish Pirates, has commented:

The aim is that this is all fun and freestyle! Players will get moved around between teams, plus there will be a Cup, Medals, T-Shirts and Bounty.

Entry is via Gold-Coin (ie £1 or £2 – whatever you have) and the monies collected will go to rugby’s Wooden Spoon charity.
