Bangalow rugby club in busy start

After a successful 2009 season, Bangalow Rugby Union Club is regrouping to defend its premiership title in the 2010 Far North Coast Village Competition.

In a busy start to the season, the Bangalow team is heading down to Evans Head on Saturday, March 13, to take part in the inaugural Village 10s.

The following weekend 20 Bangalow tourists are departing for Adelaide to play a few friendly games before hitting the much-hyped International Sevens Tournament.

As always, pre-season training will start at the beach this year. The venue has moved to Clarks Beach.

Applicants for the senior head coach are also reminded that submissions close on Monday February 1.

Bangalow may be a small town, but it has a proud rugby tradition. The original Bangalow Royals played rugby union before the First World War.

The senior club was reformed in 2003 and has had outstanding recent success, winning the Far North Coast Village Competition for the last five years in a row.

After their inaugural year in 2007, Bangalow junior rugby has achieved tremendous growth and now fields a full complement of age groups.
