Last season Circa 2017/18 Newport 2XV (Development) XV made 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 Newport 2XV 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 Newport 2XV to the 1st XV, the Newport 2XV 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 Newport 2XV 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 Newport 2XV can succeed on and off the field this season.
