Welcome back!

Thursday, 31 August 2017 10:55

WRFC are looking forward to welcoming our players and members back this weekend for the start of what should be a really exciting 2017 – 2018 season. The club has grown from strength to strength in recent years and we hope to continue this growth into the coming year and into the future.

Our senior men have moved to Saturday rugby this season and the boys and girls in the kinders and minis are switching to Sunday mornings. The youths will primarily play on Saturdays and the Senior Women on Sundays.

We are an ambitious club and are continuously trying to improve our facilities for our members and the local community. This year we have added a fantastic new all-weather training area behind the main pitch. Along with the superb third pitch and ball stop netting which was added in 2015/16 and the new parking areas and patio areas added in 2013 and 2014 mean our club has been completely transformed in the last five years.

We are delighted to announce the recent grant of full planning permission for an exciting 180 Sq metre gym extension. This will allow conversion of the existing gym into two dressing rooms with separate access to the showers which will facilitate hosting male and female teams on the same day. Something that has been impossible do in the past.

This season we also have to undertake a major project in replacing the existing septic tank at a cost of up to €20,000. 
All of these projects would be impossible to complete without the support of you our members. Our club memberships are now due. At the recent AGM in May there was a proposal passed to increase membership fees for the first time in three years.

Membership this season will be as follows
Kinders €70.
Minis €90.
Family Membership €200. 
Adult Membership €120.
Student Membership €90.
Overseas Membership €90.

WRFC announce new coaching team for 2017/18

Monday, 31 July 2017 09:54

Wicklow RFC are delighted to announce their new coaching team for next season.

Head Coach will be George Naoupu. George, who is a native of New Zealand, played last season in the English Premiership with Harlequins. Prior to that he spent several seasons with Connacht where he made 102 appearances and lifted the Guinness Pro12 title in his last season with the province. George has been capped for New Zealand at schools, u19s and sevens level. He plays back row/ second row. He will bring an absolute wealth of leadership and experience both on and off the field. George’s wife Sene has been capped for Ireland and has recently been named in the Irish Womens squad for the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

 

Backs coach will be Billy Ngawini. Billy is also a native of New Zealand and was head coach of Blackrock RFC last season. Prior to that, Billy spent several years playing in Italy with Rogivo and as a naturalised Italian, has played for the Italian Sevens team. He also spent four years playing Rugby League in the NRL in Australia/NZ for Canterbury Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans. Billy has played rugby at the highest level and will bring a wealth of talent and experience to Wicklow.

 

 

They will be ably supported by strength and conditioning coach Gary Jameson, and experienced physiotherapy and management teams.

 

Club President Bert Nicholson expressed his delight at the confirmation of the new coaching team. “We gave a commitment to our players at the end of last season that we would do our utmost to ensure a quality coaching set up for next season in Division 1A. This is a special group of players who have won a Provincial Towns Cup and Leinster League Division 1B in the last two seasons and they deserve the best. It is a testament to all the work that has been done in the club over the last ten years and more, that we can attract ambitious player coaches of this calibre. We have a lot to look forward to in the coming season with Saturday rugby and the exciting challenge of playing in Division 1A, the top division in Leinster Junior Rugby”

Pre Season training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30 pm and the club are always looking for new and former players to join the J1 and J2 squads. If you are interested in getting involved, drop up to training some evening, send a message on facebook or contact 087 2051659.
