Renew love of rugby

Kings Norton Rhinos RFC, based at Hopwood, are looking for boys who will be starting school year 10 in September to join their successful under-15s team for the 2017-18 season.

Many sports typically see a drop off in numbers from 14 years of age, and the Rhinos are looking to recruit players in order to strengthen their team and continue to give boys a positive experience of sport.

The four coaches for this age group provide a balance of experience, technical knowledge, fun and enthusiasm. A high percentage of the squad have reached County standard with Greater Birmingham and Worcestershire, and many others have attended the Developing Player Pathway at Worcester Warriors.

All players receive personal feedback tailored to their individual aspirations. The qualified and DBS-cleared coaching staff also place high importance on the social development of young players, ensuring a safe and friendly environment with great team spirit.

The club is seeking players who are experienced or new to the sport, and those looking to renew their enthusiasm for a sport that builds teamwork, respect, discipline and sportsmanship.

KNRFC has a thriving Clubhouse with bar, catering and changing facilities at Ash Lane, Hopwood.

Free pre-season training starts at 6.30pm on Tuesday July 11 for U15s, while informal touch and tag rugby sessions for all junior age groups are at 6pm on Fridays from July 30.

For further information on all age groups, including girls and seniors rugby, visit or call Simon Thompson on 07968 424585.
