South Wales RLFC will, as announced last week, kick-off their inaugural season in Co-operative Championship 1 with a home game against the former Super League club Workington Town on Sunday 28th February.
The full season’s fixtures were announced today with the much anticipated home “local derby” match against London Skolars taking place a week before Easter on Sunday 28th March.
The club, who will be playing their home games out of the famous Gnoll ground in Neath, will only play league matches in their inaugural season and will enter the Northern Rail Cup and Carnegie Challenge Cup from 2011 onwards.
Executive chairman of Wales Rugby League and one of the South Wales’ club’s directors Mark Rowley said: “We’re looking forward to the first game on February 28th which we’re delighted to see is at home. We anticipate that we will get a good crowd as there has been a lot of excitement regarding our launch. We have an enormous player base to call on in South Wales now so I know that we have the structure down here to be very competitive.”
