Longton Rugby captain George Glenn says he’s confident ahead of Longton’s local derby against Sandbach this weekend.

Going back to October of last year, Sandbach ran out 72-0 winners against Longton, and Glenn believes that his side are in a good place to improve on that result on Saturday.

Rugby Lichfield Ladies - Natasha Hunt Lichfield Women's RUFC

Lichfield Ladies are “surprised and extremely disappointed” after the Rugby Football Union made the decision to not incldue the club in the ten-team list for next season’s new Women’s Super Rugby league.

The Staffordshire club – who currently sit second in the Women’s Premiership and a point off leaders Bristol – had applied for one of the ten spots but failed in their attempts to secure a place in the new elite competition.


Macclesfield Director of Rugby Giles Heagarty believes his side are still trying to find the perfect balance.

The Blues sit bottom of the National League One and seem destined to be relegated, having won just two matches since being promoted last year.
