About the team

A very warm welcome to the women’s rugby section at Colchester Rugby Football Club, and the Iceni 1st XV women’s team.

The club runs a friendly hard-working women’s section, led by two experienced coaches and our player/team managers. Players will be challenged to develop their skills and play competitive rugby representing the club. All new players are very welcome please contact a club member of staff or turn up at one of the training sessions. The women’s section is formed to develop player and team skills. The wider women’s squad will be playing different standards of opposition and games exposure covering conventional 15-a-side contact, touch rugby and rugby 7’s games, while playing in the Iceni team will further develop these skills through competitive games in Eastern Counties competitions, and against other clubs in friendly games.

Coaching sessions: Our women have their training on Wednesday evenings at CRFC Raven Park. The women’s section encourages all women who are interested in learning to play rugby and playing rugby to take part. Regardless of whether players are total newcomers to the sport with no prior experience, players with some experience perhaps from playing at school, college or university, or are experienced club rugby players. All are welcome and will be given the opportunity to train (and want to play) within the women’s Iceni team against teams from other clubs. The coaching process reinforces the importance of women’s rugby at Colchester and provides a progression path for players from girl’s rugby..

Training commences at 19:00 promptly on Wednesday evenings, with players expected to be at the club ready-to-go at 18:50.

Iceni 1st XV Team: The Iceni team name is known in women’s club rugby already. Formal matches tend to be on a Sunday, and tend to have kick off’s after 12:00 (actual timing does vary but is advised to players when kick-off is confirmed), and is in part recognition that some players will be parents who will have been supporting their children’s youth rugby in the morning.

Players need to be at the club or opposition ground at least an hour before the scheduled kick-off time ready to start warming up.

The team is entered in the Allianz Inner Warrior Series for the upcoming 21/22 season, which is a competition to encourage women’s rugby team and player development.

On game days there is not the expectation that players wear formal team or clubwear before or after the games like in the men or youth sections.
