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.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
