Youth Rugby at Portobello Rugby Club
Portobello has a long history of running youth rugby through Portobello High School.
We are now part of a fantastic initiaitve to develop and grow rugby in schools in the East of Edinburgh known as 'Edinburgh Harlequins'.
Edinburgh Harlequins see's the coming together of 5 high schools in the East of the City.
Portobello High School. Castelbrae High School. Gracemount High School. Hollyrood High School. Liberton High School.
The initiative brings the players together to train at top of the range facilities on a Wednesday and they play in the Evolution Schools Rugby Conference. Teams across school years play regular fixtures.
The initiative is supported by 2 development officers focused entirely on developing youth rugby in these schools in the east of Edinburgh. Portobello's youth convenor - Fraser McCowen supports the initiative for Portobello Rugby Club.
