Club History        Formed in 2003 as a result of the regionalisation of Welsh rugby, the team started life with a third-place finish in the 2003/04 Celtic League. The team has, however, struggled to match those early heights, finishing in the bottom three from 2005/6 to 2008/9.

               

The Stadium       Rodney Parade is the home ground of rugby union clubs Newport RFX and the Newport Gwent Dragons, as well as Newport County Football Club

                         Rodney Parade has two covered stands: the larger Hazell (west) Stand, and the smaller Bisley (east) Stand. The upper tier of the west stand is seated and the lower tier is a standing terrace. The east stand is all-seated with a 2,526 capacity, including  144 seats in 13 hospitality boxes.

The North Terrace is uncovered standing and adjoins some  uncovered standing terrace on the west touchline alongside the west stand. The South Terrace houses players' changing rooms and a media centre, but the south end is currently unavailable to spectators.

                       Long term plans include construction of covered stands to replace the North and   South terraces, and to provide cover on the currently uncovered stretch of the west  touchline terrace.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
