Newport RUFC 2XV

This season Circa 2017/18 Newport Legion (Development) XV makes a return to the Elite Midland Reserve Division, the highest level available to 2nd teams within the region. Having finished a close second in the league and also runner up in the League Cup, the Legion will be keen to build on their success and cement themselves as one of the best 2nd teams in the region.

With many players progressing from the Legion to the 1st XV, the Legion offer a warm embrace of unity to players who are looking to develop and progress but also offers a great platform to players who want to play a high level of development rugby on a Saturday. With the premature retirement of Newport legend, Michael 'Horse' Woodhouse, the reigns will be taken up by Newport stalwart and social media grand master, Pete 'Pistol' Thomas who will be hoping to lead the Legion to success on and off the field.

A good brand of exciting, running rugby with great player interaction and banter, followed by a top social aspect to go with it will hopefully mean the Legion can succeed on and off the field this season. Viva le Legion here is to 2017/2018.
