Youngsters set for Nando’s Cup half-time exhibition match

Last Sunday’s (March 18th) Nando’s Cup Festival may have fallen afoul of the weather, but the show goes on for the half-time ‘Barbarians’ fixture at Friday’s league clash between Bristol Rugby and Yorkshire Carnegie at Ashton Gate.

Each team can nominate two players to represent their club in U13 and U14 fixtures during the interval, with nominations based on the players demonstrating the core values of our game - teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. 

“We were disappointed to have to postpone the Nando’s Cup Festival on Sunday, but although Bristol Grammar School has an artificial pitch, the roads surrounding the playing fields were treacherous and safety is always our first priority.

“Despite the postponement, youngsters will still have the chance to play on the hallowed Ashton gate turf on Friday night, so we’re asking clubs to nominate two players who perfectly represent the sport’s core values.”

If you have any questions, please contact community development officer, Craig Capel (ccapel@bristolrugby.co.uk).
