With the rugby union season now drawing to a close, we can look back on a season of success. The first team achieved their main objective of staying in division one after
Junior rugby has seen some great success this year with the under 18s getting some fantastic results and making the final of the county cup. Alongside this all of the other age groups have been growing in numbers, skills and confidence throughout the season.gaining promotion last season whilst also reaching the county cup final. The second team had an outstanding season with some good results from a group of great young fellas, many of who have also contributed to the Consett Rugby first teams cause. The third team managed to turn out a team for every fixture except one, also displaying some great performances.
Well that was the season that was, now for what the future holds, and that starts with the transition from rugby union to rugby league. For the second summer we will be running an adult rugby league team on Saturday afternoons with training on Wednesday evening at 7:00. For the first time there will now be a junior Consett Rugby team also playing rugby league. This will be for anyone aged under 14 which is anyone in year 9 at school or below.
As well as the rugby league, the club will also be running a seven a side union squad throughout the summer. This Consett Rugby team will be competing in various completions throughout the whole of the North East.
