Phoenix 1st XV
Here at Phoenix we strive to play attractive rugby based on a good application of basic skills, combined with a high level of fitness that allows for a fast and free flowing game with effective support play being foremost; this emphasis on the kind of rugby we play is as important to us as the result!
While the emphasis is always on enjoyment first and foremost, we believe that being competitive and keeping high standards enhances this enjoyment and we are always looking to attract players who fully embrace training, playing and social aspects of rugby.
Additionally, an essential part of the character of our club has always been to introduce, encourage and develop new players to the game; how many talented rugby players are out there who have never held a ball? Whatever your age and experience, young or old, in your prime or of an age where you are looking for a less competitive and more social game of rugby, you will be made to feel welcome at Phoenix and be given the opportunity to play the standard of rugby that you want.
Also, if your playing days are behind you and you just wish to be a spectator, we would be delighted to welcome you to as an active social member. Our bar makes for an attractive, comfortable and friendly environment to spend a Saturday afternoon!
We are privileged to have good playing facilities and a fantastic bar which attracts new and existing members (both playing and non-playing).
