The Senior Squad: 1st and 2nd XV

The Senior Squad is overseen by Stuart Montgomery, Chair of Senior Playing, supported by a Management Team with a wealth of coaching, topflight and international rugby experience.

Many of our existing players have come up through our successful Youth and Academy sections and Senior players play a key role in supporting those sections, encouraging the next generation of players.

The immediate challenge for the Senior Squad is to gain promotion to Level 4 but that is just the start!

New players are always welcome  – training is Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30pm feel free to just turn up or contact Chaz Spence, our Team Coach  on 07766 782339 or Simon Jervis DoR on dor@twrfc.com
