Rugby club chasing players, set to hold come-and-try session

The Ballarat Rugby Union Club is holding a come-and-try session in a bid to boost its numbers for season 2018.

Club spokesperson Jen Couzens said it had been hard to recruit players in the Ballarat region.

“We were premiers two years ago but had a tough year last year in a higher division,” she said.

“The structure has been reorganised and we are looking forward to a positive season in 2018.

“Unfortunately, we had several players move interstate and back home overseas so we are a little low on numbers.”

Ballarat is part of a Rugby Victoria league and plays against sides from places such as Bendigo, Melbourne, Geelong and Shepparton.

This Tuesday’s come-and-try session will be held at Doug Dean Reserve from 6.30pm.
