JUNIOR RUGBY HOSTING HASTINGS BOYS SCHOOL FROM NEW ZEALND

Pirates Junior Rugby are very excited to be hosting Hastings Boys School from New Zealand on Sunday 13th July at the Club.

We will have an afternoon of great rugby with our U10 and U11’s playing in Curtain Raisers for the main game which is our U16 and U17 team combined.

This game kicks off at 14h00. It would be fantastic to have many Pirates supporters down for the game and to show our Kiwi friends what an awesome club we have and of course to make some new friends

WALK THE TALK – SUNDAY 27TH JULY

Pirates has very kindly been offered to man a water table at the 702 Walk the Talk on Sunday 27th July at the Greenside Primary School.

What is required from Pirates is 40 able adults who can work at the table. For this effort the Club will receive R11k which will go directly to the Deck Fund.

The details of times etc have not yet been supplied and these will be given as soon as we hear from them.

I am therefore appealing to our members to please volunteer to work at the event.

If you are able to help please will you email Glynis Mauldon so that she can collate the names for us.

If we do not have 40 adults we do NOT get paid so please volunteer and help raise some easy money
