Senior Womens Rugby at Portobello Rugby Club
Portobello has not yet established a womens rugby team, however it is our ambition to one day do so.
Whilst we are open to and will support the bringing together of a group of women to form a team at Portobello Rugby Club, we appreciate that this potentially an unrealistic 'strategy' to adopt. Our strategy, in line with the SRU's guidance, is to focus on developing girls rugby at mini level with an aim to being able to field a full girls team at P6/7.
Then, we hope that as they move up to high school, this group of girls will bring in more girls and we'll be able to field girls youth level teams all the way through high school with these girls coming out of school and establishing the Portobello Womens Rugby Club.
It might take us 7, 8, 9+ years but we are committed to making it work.
In the mean time, if you're a woman and you'd be interested in playing rugby please get in touch, if we have anything developing we can connect you up or direct you to a local womens club.
