Monday, 02 March 2015 17:15

Wicklow Rugby Football Club’s Under 12s Spring Blitz on Saturday

Joining Wicklow’s finest ‘Mini’ players on Saturday were fellow county club teams from Arklow and Greystones alongside a large contingent from Barnhall rugby club, Dublin and Liceo Francés de Madrid - who travelled all the way from Spain. The Spanish club may not be familiar to everyone, even rugby fans, but they have an Oscar winner among their membership – Javier Bardem aka Raoul Silva the baddy in the 2012 Bond movie Skyfall.

Bank Of Ireland Provincial Towns Cup Second Round

Provincial Towns Cup Second Round

Wicklow RFC’s First XV had a week off this week as they continued with their preparations to take on Dundalk in the second round of the Towns Cup on Feb 22nd. Dundalk are top of Leinster League Division 1A and will be hot favourites but Wicklow will not be travelling to the border town to make up the numbers. The team has been in good form in recent weeks and are looking forward to taking on the recently crowned All Ireland Champions. Wicklow will need to be at their very best to come away with the win but they will travel with real self belief and the knowledge that when it clicks for them they can beat any team on the day. 

Wicklow have a young squad with the majority of players under the age of 23 but they also have huge experience throught the spine of the side, with the likes of Niall Smullen, Niall Earls, Noel Greene, Bull Jameson and Ken Copeland.There is huge talent among the younger lads several of whom have tasted success before when winning All Ireland Titles at u16 and u18 levels including scrum half and captain Dennis Higgins. Remarkably 19 of the 20 lads who played last weekend against Kilkenny in the Leinster league have come through from Wicklows Youths/ mini sections.

This is a huge game for the club and a huge game for these players. WRFC are asking our members and supporters to make the effort to get up to Dundalk for the game. It is motorway all the way and should take less than 90 minutes from Wicklow. This team deserve and would really appreciate your support. Kick off is on Sunday at 3pm. WRFC will be running a supporters bus on the day. If you are interested contact Brian Clarke 087 6887839 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Big Day on Sunday

Wednesday, 04 February 2015 12:25

This Weekend is a huge weekend for Wicklow RFC. The firsts and seconds take on Kilkenny RFC is a crucial double header that will probably decide the destination of both League titles.

Wicklows seconds captained by Simon Norton take currently lead the league and take on Kilkennys seconds who lie in second place. A win or draw will see Wicklow crowned league champions for the first time since 2001. (A picture of that 2001 league winning side is below. Remarkably Liam Hughes, Mark Donohoe, Paddy Jameson, Doike Flood and Mick Higgins were all involved that day fourteen years ago)
