Rugby returns with exciting cup clashes

RUGBY will return this weekend (Sept 17) with a number of exciting Cup clashes.

The WRU has reformatted its cup competitions, giving more teams the opportunity to reach the finals at the Principality Stadium.

There are five separate cups and teams have been divided into several groups of four.

Rugby in Wales was suspended last weekend following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and teams are expected to pay their respects, with a two-minutes silence, prior to this weekend’s games.

Teams in Pembrokeshire have been placed into the Cup that corresponds with their league with League 1 West Crymych being placed in the Division 1 Cup and so on.
