There will be no training for the U11 through to U16/17 who will be taking part in the TRC Cup Tournament
There are no visitors to training this weekend.
We know that many of the younger children are waiting on their playing jerseys. We are hoping that we will have the jerseys to distribute to the children who did not receive them when they registered at the training after the half term break. We will provide further updates here.

JRCS FESTIVAL OF NATIONS 2022
The Festival of Nations, a junior rugby 7 or 10 a-side fun competition, will be held on Sunday 4th of December 2022. It is organised by JRCS and hosted by Tanglin Rugby Club at Turf City. It is a chance for players from all clubs and schools to come together and celebrate another successful year.
Sunday, December 04, 2022
Tanglin Rugby Club pitchesTurf Club Road, Turf City , Singapore 287994
The Festival is open to boys from year of birth 2005 to 2017, and girls from 2004 to 2017. All players are selected to play for 1 of 12 national teams (AUS, ENG, FIJ, FRA, IRE, JAP, NZ, SGP, SCO, SAF, USA, ARG) in an age group specific competition.
FOLLOW THIS LINK IN ORDER TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD FOR THE FESTIVAL OF NATIONS – SIGN UP HERE
There are no guarantees on which team you’ll end up with, as part of the fun is not knowing until you get there on the day and meet your new team-mates. BUT, the earlier you register the more chance you’ll be with one of the 3 teams you select as part of this registration process.
The entry fee is $55 which buys you a custom made ‘national’ team shirt to keep, a great day playing with new friends, and a chance to round out the rugby year in style!
This event has been a great success in the last few years and we look forward to more of the same this year. Please do sign up early at the registration link above. As you do so, parents, please consider checking the box to volunteer as a national coach.
Lastly, a shout out to our very generous sponsors Singapore Life, Chocolate Finance and Canvas. Many thanks for your continued and awesome support for junior rugby in Singapore.
Have a look at the videos from FoN 2018 and 2019 to get a taster of what’s to come:
KIT FOR GAMES AND TOURNAMENTS
If your team is taking part in games, please ensure that your child is wearing their full and up-to-date kit. They must wear the latest playing jersey/touch top that they were given which have our sponsors latest logos on them. Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training.
Our sponsors have generously stood by us despite the trying times of the last 2 years, and we need to honour their contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
BBQ AND LIGHT SNACKS AT DEMPSEY
Don’t forget that BBQ and light snacks are now available for sale at the F&B Hut at Dempsey. You will now be able to buy bacon sandwiches, burgers, muffins, sandwiches and hot dogs to go with your coffee! They accept PAYNOW or CASH only, or you can sign on your account if you are a Singapore Cricket Club member.
