An appeal goes out this week from the Ponty mini and junior sections, for host families to come forward to take in some of the kids from the forthcoming Dutch tour to Pontypridd.


The tour will take place on the weekend of 29th April, when a large party from the town of Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands will come over to Pontypridd to play and to be entertained. Games between the Dukes club their Ponty hosts at under 14s / 15s and under 16s are scheduled, and participation in the mini rugby tournament on Sunday 30th April.


The organisation of the tour is proving to be a huge logistical challenge for the Ponty minis and juniors. The older tourists from the Dukes club will be camping out at a location in Pontypridd, but the younger kids require families to take them in for the weekend. Any volunteers for this task are asked to contact the Ponty Mini & Junior section by e-mailing or by calling tour organiser Martyn Lewis on 07798 683057. > Rugby > Age-grade Rugby > Mini & Junior news > Appeal for host families
