The Pontyclun Falcons have started their pre-season preparations for the forthcoming season.
The Falcons are looking this year to improve on their fourth place in the Premiership division of the Welsh Women's league from the 2010/2011 season. They are also hopeful of going one better after the thrilling 15-8 defeat to Neath Athletic at this year's Welsh Cup final.
The Falcons train every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm at Pontyclun Rugby Club, with an optional third sprint session every Saturday at Merthyr Mawr Sand dunes.
The team is always looking out for new players. No matter what the experience or fitnesss levels, being a Falcon means great friends, good rugby and lots of fun!
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
