The Mighty Hoggets

Who are the Hoggets? We're a creative team of free thinkers & risk takers, who smile loads & look out for each other. We don't measure our success in a W/L column. We include the amount of fist bumps, high fives & laughs we get every week along with offloads, intercepts, goose steps & of course tackles.

We hope to develop great people as well as great rugby players. We value teamwork, respect, enjoyment, fair play & discipline. We have fun. We laugh. We play games. We look for space. We have no "first team". Everyone plays. All the time. In a safe & welcoming environment. Oh & our coaches are well qualified & quiet - we try really hard not to shout instructions. Our players prefer it that way!

If you think Rugby is all about "winning the contact", "earning the right to go wide", drills & contact pads, then please step into our office. We'd love to open your eyes. Just wait until you see your first no-look-out-the-back-offload within seconds of a game starting. You'll know you & your kids are in the right place.

If your child is in year 6 (2019/2020) we'd like it very much if you could join us this season. We train from 8th September on Sunday mornings starting at 10.30 sharp.
