They call it the game they play in heaven, and Peregian Saints Rugby Union are off to a stellar start to the season, and by the look of the smiles on the faces of their little players (above), the club is all about fun too! Training and pre-season matches have been underway over the last few weeks, and the first fixtures for the 2023 season start on April 22. Club Marketing Liaison, Marcus Bawden said that the teams are absolutely delighted with their new playing kit and are all really looking forward to getting on the field. “We’re looking forward to a huge season in 2023, and we’d like to extend special thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors from the local community.” Peregian Saints Rugby fields teams from Under 6s to Under 13s and has seen player numbers increase on last year in what has been a great growth spurt for the local club. There are still openings for new players across all grades, and you can sign on at www.saintsrugbyclub.com. The Saints’ home ground – known as ‘The Fortress’ is at the Peregian Recreation Centre, and you can keep an eye on the Rugby Xplorer website for scheduled game times if you’d like to come and support the teams.
