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.

Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
