Think you are too old, too unfit or don’t have the time to commit to playing rugby? Well you can think again, thanks to the news that Birmingham & Solihull Rugby Club are looking to start up a senior men’s’ social rugby side this season.
Speaking about the announcement, Chairman of Rugby Dai Phillips said, “We would like to add to our rugby offer by starting a side playing a more relaxed form of rugby. The Barbarians can provide an outlet for players who have, perhaps, come through our M&J system or have come back from university, but cannot or do not wish to commit to the training and travel commitments of the Senior (Bees and Hornets) squad.”
“It will also be an opportunity for some players who may be more advanced in years who still have gas in their rugby tanks.”
“The concept of the Barbarians side is to provide opportunities for fun and enjoyment - rather than entering a league, the side will initially look to play fixtures against local sides as and when the players wish too.”
Cameron Watson has kindly agreed to lead this initiative and anyone who is interested should contact him in the first instance by email (email@example.com ).
