Newport RUFC 2XV

This season Circa 2016/17 Newport 2nd Team find themselves in familiar territory once more following there relegation from the heights of the Elite Midlands Reserve Division. After a disappointing first season in the top flight the 'Legion' as they are now so famously called is keen to resurrect the Class of 2014/15 where a near unbeaten season saw them win promotion and gain a cup success not seen on the Forton road for a good many years. Providing a Link between the 1st team the Legion can offer a warm embrace of unity to players either striving to make it at Newport or happy to play good level of development rugby on a Saturday. Inspired by the success of Leicester City, Manager Mark 'Lowie' Lowbridge, Captain Jonny ‘Noberto’ Styles and Vice-Captain Michael 'Horse' Woodhouse will be aiming to ensure it is a season to remember both on and off the field. A good brand of 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. Followed by the ever present Woodhouse Fan Club and their personal motto, Viva le Legion here is to 2016/2017.
