The Gloucester Touch Rugby League kicked off last night at Longlevens RFC with the sun shining and great numbers despite the distraction of the British and Irish Lions inconveniently staging a game at the same time!
Over 90 players took part in the first 'try-it' session as teams played a number of games throughout the evening but, if you're still interested in taking part, it's not too late.
Last night was an opportunity for those that have never played or indeed for those just wanting to get back into the swing of things before the league kicks off on Wednesday 17th June.
So, there is still plenty of time to get a few friends together and form a team to take part in the tournament.
This season participants will have the opportunity to play at Kingsholm Stadium in the latter stages of the tournament along with the chance to win vouchers for the Gloucester Rugby shop courtesy of Rugbytech.
Places in the tournament are still available, for further information please contact Andy Brown on 01452 872275 or email email@example.com
The Gloucester Rugby Touch league is open to anybody aged 16 and over and takes place every Wednesday at Longlevens RFC from 6.30pm onwards.
If you want to have some fun and enjoy rugby why not come along and have a go!
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
