BRFC Inclusive Match- 11:00

This Fall, BRFC Hall of Famer Al Corless formed a unique branch of Blackthorn RFC- the BRFC Inclusive Club for athletes with special needs.  This year, the BRIC will be kicking off the festivities by showing off all they have learned about rugby through the coaching of Al and his crew of volunteer coaches. Let's show the team some support by packing the sidelines and cheering them on. Following the 1st game, the club would like to present each our newest players with a token of appreciation...a Blackthorn (or other) rugby jersey. So dig out those old jerseys you have stashed away somewhere in a closet or the attic and attach a personal note of encouragement and bring it with you for one of the guys. Contact Al Corless ( for a list of players and their positions/sizes.
