Touch rugby grows in popularity


Minch Touch rugby is going from strength-to-strength.

Formed in 2004 by JP Cory, as the ‘Old Ruckers’, to enable those too injured or old to play contact rugby an opportunity to continue their rugby careers.

Starting out on the playing field of Minchinhampton Primary School and the Common and then moving to Hayward’s Field before the whole club was able to purchase Hollybush.

Over the years Mixed Touch Rugby has become massively popular and the club has responded to this demand.

The junior section was formed four years ago by Adrian Danks and now has several players at the national level with the u15 girls forming part of the overall winning squad last month and becoming English national champions.
