Eccles Ladies 2XV, known affectionately as ‘The 2s’ are one of the newest women’s rugby teams in Greater Manchester. We are also the most recent addition to the twenty year history of women’s rugby at Eccles RFC.
This season, 2017/18, we are once again participating in National Challenge Two North West after a successful and enjoyable first year in the league in 2016/17.
Training is twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays,19:30-21:00. For season 2017/18, this commences on Tuesday 04.07.2017. Training takes place with the Ladies 1st XV with support and breakout sessions available for new players and those learning the game. Separate strength and fitness sessions will be arranged at times and days to suit.
Eccles Ladies offers an opportunity to play rugby at whichever level you aspire to. If you want to play social rugby, are a new player or returning to the game the 2s is a great place to be. We are one team with two opportunities to play rugby, playing 1st XV rugby is very achievable and a great target; we will support anyone wishing to play at that level.
