NSW Rugby Union are conducting a Club Blitz to connect community junior players to NSW Waratahs.

The NSW Waratahs have been dedicated to giving back to community rugby. To bridge the gap from professionalism to community rugby, our Waratahs will be visiting 50 clubs over a three-week period.

The first session of visits will be conducted next week on the 21st and 22nd of March ahead of their Friday night home clash against the Chiefs – Tickets – The Tahs will be spread out over 20 different clubs in the Sydney metropolitan area.

The second session will be conducted during the first two weeks of May, where 30 other clubs will get an opportunity to host.

Two players will be designated to one club. They will be helping with training, taking photos, signing jerseys and hanging out with all junior players.

This is a great opportunity for players to get registered on the Rugby Xplorer app and head down to their local club and have a run around with the professionals of our game.
