Team info

Welcome to Ponteland 1stxv!

We are a young squad with the vast majority of our players 25 years of age and under. Having been promoted from DN2 just before covid hit we have been looking forward to testing our systems and players in DN1. We firmly believe that if the ball was meant to be kicked – it would be round! We look to play a fast and fluid game where all players, from 1 to 15, get their hands on the ball and contribute both offensively and defensively to the team collective. We won`t “die with the music inside us” and we will trust both our skills and our fitness levels to enable us to cope in pressurised situations and close games. “The harder we train, the luckier we will get”.

Teamwork and a positive team collective is key to the above – we also believe that good people make good rugby players ; respect, hard work, good communication (both on and off the field) are all key factors to our goal of challenging ourselves both as players and people in a competitive rugby environment.

We are very proud of the fact that the vast majority of our players have come through our own youth system, but if you are young and ambitious and want to be challenged in a progressive coaching environment we are the team for you. We would love to see all the rugby players who live in the estates that surround us locally to play for our club, rather than feel they need to play for a club further outside the area.

We train on Tuesdays and Thursdays if you would like to give us a try!
