We have another Metro Match away this Sunday 21st October against Blackrock College RFC in their rugby club, so please aim to be in Blackrock College RFC for 10.00am, the matches kick-off at 10.10am sharp.
Please make sure that your child is wearing a GUM SHIELD, boots & a Clontarf jersey (& no worries if they don’t have one). A strict NO GUM SHIELD NO PLAY rule applies.
Can you please confirm your child’s availability on Teamer by Friday evening, otherwise they will not be allocated to a team for Sunday.
Directions to Blackrock RFC:
Head over the East Link Toll Bridge along Sandymount Seafront out towards Blackrock, pass Blackrock Shopping Centre & Frank Keane BMW on your left hand side, keep going straight out towards Deansgrange & keep an eye out for Stradbrook Road which will be on your left hand side, turn on to Stradbrook Road & Blackrock College RFC is located just a couple of hundred yards on your left hand side.
There will be no rugby on Sunday week 28th October due to it being a bank holiday weekend and the midterm break.
As previously mentioned, our annual Youth & Mini Lunch for the coaches and parents is on Saturday 3rd November with a drinks reception starting at 4pm. It will be a great evening of nice food & fun entertainment in the club. I’m hoping that our squad will have two tables at this lunch so please let me know if you can make it, the cost is €50pp. The Ireland v Italy game in Chicago will be shown live on the big screen in the bar afterwards.
See you all on Sunday.
