Cwmbran Rugby football club was founded in and played its first game against Newport at Wentloog Marshes on 2 December of that year. The first home fixtures were played at Sophia Gardens. However, the club soon relocated to its famous ground at Cwmbran Arms Park, named after the local Cwmbran Arms public house. The Arms Park has seen many developments; originally home to both Cwmbran cricket and rugby matches, the venue is among the most famous in the world.
Until Cwmbran and Wales played their home matches on the same pitch but a sea-change came in the season. As a result of an agreement between Cwmbran Athletic Club and the Welsh Rugby Union, the National Ground project established a new stadium for international matches with club rugby fixtures switched to the original cricket ground on the Arms Park site. Cwmbran Rugby football club, however, continues to play at Cwmbran Arms Park.

By Car Ravenhill is not the most car-friendly of grounds due to the residential area that surrounds the ground, and associated strict parking restrictions. By Taxi The traffic in Belfast can be a little heavy around rush hour, but it is possible and possibly cost-effective in groups to get a taxi to Ravenhill from most parts of the City. ValueCabs are the main operator in town. After the game, there are taxis lined up and a queuing system in place to ferry people away from the ground. By Train Whilst there are no rail stations particularly close to the ground, traingoers can alight at Belfast Central station beside the city’s redeveloped Waterfront area.
It’s almost two miles to the ground, the majority of the jaunt along the Ravenhill Road, flanked by Ormeau Park. Most of Northern Ireland’s rail services pass through Central station, as do the cross-border services from Dublin. A word of caution however – rail services in Northern Ireland are much more infrequent and finish earlier than in Mainland UK or Europe, so it is best to check the timetable in advance. All services are operated by Translink. By Bus Translink provide shuttle bus services from the Europa Bus Station in Belfast’s City Centre and a few other spots in town to Ravenhill on match nights, including return travel after the game.

A taxi to the city won’t set you back too much, but if you would rather save your pennies the Airport Express bus operates every 20 minutes, and will drop you off at Belfast’s Europa Bus Centre in next to no time.

Daly Cherry-Evans turned his back on the Titans to sign a lifetime deal with Manly. Getty Images Former teammates, including some in the Queensland side, report the way Cherry-Evans presents publicly is exactly how Cherry-Evans speaks to them privately. They can’t work out if he’s just a different sorta cat — or full of shit. That he is trying to be something that he is not. He remains one of the game’s most enigmatic players, which is strange considering he’s never stepped a toe out of line off the field.
On this day, he was typically well spoken, and provided relative candour. He said — and this was on the record — that he wanted to build a better relationship with the media.

Minety win in mud bath Minety maintained their unbeaten run, stretching back to early November, with a dogged and unspectacular win over Supermarine in quite appalling conditions at Minety on Saturday. Many must have been surprised that the waterlogged pitch had passed a pre match inspection and it was soon evident that underfoot conditions would play a major role in the outcome of the game. With the rain sweeping across the ground and spectators huddling in groups, Minety kicked off playing down the slope.
Fun in the mud — 2nd half action The home side dominated the early exchanges and opened the scoring in the 7th minute before Supermarine had even ventured out of their own half. Supermarine struck back but determined tackling from the Minety pack held them at bay until the 26th minute when the visitors were awarded a penalty in front of the posts. The ensuing points for Supermarine were the first to be scored against Minety since mid-December. Tom Claxton leads his team off at the end The inform Minety team scored their second try in the 31st minute.
Captain Tom Claxton and his forwards drove the ball to the line and Garland picked up at the base of the ensuing ruck, beating two defenders to score. Coaches Andy Grayson and Hywel Rees brought Jack Ward on to replace the returning Steve White, back after a long term should injury, but with the pitch deteriorating rapidly, the match became even more fragmented with both teams struggling in a sea of mud. Minety produced the best move of the half starting with a break out by Bull followed by a 50 metre advance involving nearly all of the team.
The move ended when Supermarine were penalised but Garland, usually so reliable from the kicking tee, sliced the penalty wide. Tom Claxton, Ben Coilins and Jack Ward Mired in the mud and unable to find the fluid, quick passing game that has proved so successful this season, Minety struggled to contain the oppositions for great swathes of the 2nd half without ever looking as if they were going to concede a try. A typically barn storming cross field run by Howse ended with him flat on his back after an unsafe tackle.

LinkedIn Rugby Canada and its disgruntled sevens players have come to an agreement ending the player boycott. But while they are back in the fold, it appears there may be more work needed to mend their differences. Thirteen players including co-captains Nate Hirayama and Harry Jones have boycotted training since their contracts ended Aug. Time is of the essence. Backers of the sevens squad have formed a support group to provide assistance for the sevens side of the game.
Sevens coach Damian McGrath, who was essentially desk-bound during the dispute, is back in charge of the squad. The two sides had been at odds since Rugby Canada announced in early August that it would have one centralized player pool rather than separate sevens and 15s squads. The new player agreement will be effective dating back to Oct. The sevens players are continuing with their bid for union certification, making their case to join the United Steelworkers of America before the B.
While Rugby Canada supports the concept of a player association, it opposes the unionization bid. The two squads had previously trained apart in Langford with separate coaches — with some 17 carded athletes in the sevens squad and up to 30 non-carded players in the 15s — although there has been some movement between the two. But the changes irked the sevens players, who felt their game was being marginalized Rugby Canada says its bottom line is built on World Rugby funding contingent on qualifying for the Rugby World Cup, necessitating a focus on the 15s game.
But it said it would maintain its support for sevens.
