RHYL and District will play their final game at a neutral venue before taking the field at their new base in the coming weeks.

The Dragons take the field against Wrexham at the brand new 4G pitch situated at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay on Saturday, with their Tynewydd ground just a few short days from being officially ready to host games and community events.

The move to Rhyl will signal the end of nearly 50 memorable years at The Waen, the scene of an historic SWALEC Cup run in the mid-1990s, the famous North Wales Pub 7s and one of the most picturesque rugby locations in North Wales.

The sale of the clubhouse, three rugby pitches and car park to North Wales Construction Ltd was completed in mid-March to further progress development on the site.

Club chairman Richard Greenwood, said: “After many years of planning and preparation, Rhyl Rugby Club stands on the threshold of a magnificent new opportunity to create a community centre in the heart of Rhyl.

"Not only will this be a top-quality sporting facility hosting a resurgent rugby club, but it will also be a focal point for a wide range of other sporting and social activities.”

The WRU National League Division Two North side were without a fixture this weekend due to Dolgellau’s participation in the SWALEC Bowl, but a mixture of first team and second unit players took the field for a specially arranged fixture against Mold 3rds.

The unit produced a fine attacking display in difficult conditions to emerge as comfortable victors at Rhyl High School, with the hosts using a total of 35 players during the fixture.

Club secretary Brian Hill, added: “We are excitingly close to moving to Tynewydd Field with everything looking positive for very early in the new year.

“There is a buzz of excitement through the club with everyone excited with the move to the fantastic facilities. We have been grateful to all teams that allowed the change of fixtures.”
