Audenshaw Rugby embark on their latest overseas tour over the Easter break to Portugal.

Players from the U14, U15 and U16 squads will be testing themselves against a number of teams in what is very much one of rugby’s development areas in Europe.

The U16’s are fresh from their victory in the Lancashire RFU Plate Final and will enjoy a fitting end to their first five years of school rugby with many also looking forward to returning for the senior campaign in 2016/17.

The tour will involve many exciting activities including a high ropes course, a surfing clinic and a stadium tour of Benfica FC.

Touring is an integral part of the rugby programme at Audenshaw and previous trips have included South Africa in 2003 and 2010, Canada in 2006 and 2012 and France in 2014 as well as a series of smaller scale UK based tours for the junior age groups.

We wish the boys all the very best for what we are sure will be a great week away.
