LEIGH Rugby Union Club under 12s Dragons are hunting for players ahead of a tour to Australia.

The club enjoyed a successful season last time out, with a third place finish in the Lancashire Cup finals and the announcement of a tour to Australia in 2018.

The club are looking to recruit players this season in order to finalise the touring squad in 2015 and allow sufficient time for fund-raising.

The tour in July/August 2018 will include games in Brisbane and along the Sunshine Coast and take in events of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Anyone who is about to start in school year seven, interested in playing at a high level of rugby union and beginning a four-year adventure to a potential trip of a lifetime should contact Dave on 07835 253685 or the club directly on 01942 673526.
