O2 Touch

Touch has been part of MRFC since early 2016 with O2 Touch support.
This variant of the oval ball game has played a part in giving our coaches and parents, our youth age and above team players - men and women and boys and girls - a chance to run out onto the field together - for fun, for fitness, and as a way of getting to know Melbourne RFC.
Four of our touch players have joined in with MRFC contact sides in 17/18.
There are about 31 of us connected to Touch as players. We play throughout the year with numbers average about 15-20. There is no commitment to turn up every week. What we try to do is limit the playing side to about 7-10 aside which allows each player plenty of time on the ball, or organising themselves defensively - the idea after all is for each and every player to come off the field tired and happy, fitter, and better ball handlers and defenders.
There is a small fee on turning up £2 for adults, £1 for youth (helps with pitch rental costs at Repton over the 6 months of low light)

Touch Rugby is on Mondays 7-8, During Winter (from Oct 22nd 2018) we play under flood lights at Repton.

The Latest: we move to Melbourne MSP Pitch 1 from Monday 7th May 2018.
