West Wales Raiders announce another new team to their ever-growing brand.
After Raiders Rascals and Raiders Wheelchair RL being announced during lockdown the Raiders have added another side to their ranks.
This time it’s the Masters game that they have confirmed to be a part of once rugby league can safely return.
Masters Rugby League is a derivative of rugby league for a wide age range of older, semi-retired and non-competitive players and officials. Participants must be aged over 35 and have retired from competitive rugby.
The Raiders will look to organise fixtures against teams from similar areas to their league 1 counterparts and try and hold full weekends both home and away with the first team, wheelchair and masters all playing across one weekend.
Raiders General Manager Richard Stebbing added “Launching the master’s side is another great announcement for the club. Masters Rugby League is a great opportunity for those that love the game still, to carry on playing the sport at a relatively competitive level.
Those of us that are in the more seasoned stages of life and sometimes enjoy a little too much of the finer things in life, have another chance to battle on the pitch. Being able to support the Raiders on the field and then pulling on a Raiders shirt with your pals either beforehand or afterwards will be a great fun. I’m looking forward to future seeing future fixtures held at Stebonheath Park including a Welsh derby v Cardiff.
The basis of any sport is to have fun with your friends and that is what The West Wales Raiders masters will be. This a great opportunity for us less active, to get active and boost health and well-being.”
Keep an eye out on all Raiders platforms as more news will be released on a weekly basis of what the club is working to achieve behind the scenes.
