West Norfolk youngsters 'pitch up and play' in non-contact variation of game




Rugby returned to West Norfolk over the weekend as the club invited new and returning players to 'pitch up and play' an exciting, non-contact variation of the game.

Saturday saw more than 70 senior men, ladies and under-18 boys/girls play against each other and the day was a great success.

Everyone embraced the revised rules and it was great to get out and enjoy a day of competitive matches.
