RHYL and District Rugby Club will play host to a special Masters event this month.

The Dragons’ impressive facility at Ty Newydd Fields will welcome Rugby League stars from across the country at the mini tournament, which is set to take place on Saturday, July 27 from 11am until 2pm.

Masters Rugby League is a game for those aged 35 and over, and the laws of the game apply except for amendments made by the governing bodies.

There are slight differences between the laws, but the general modifications are the same and aim to reduce the physicality of the game, with "rough and over vigorous play" not being condoned.

Masters players are divided by age, this being signified through the use of different coloured shorts.

Physical contact is restricted or removed in both attack and defence for individual players based on these colours.

The younger players can tackle normally, if older players are involved in the tackle it may be completed by a two-handed hold or by a touch.

No scores are kept, all games finish 0-0 and main rule is that all players must buy a drink for their opposite number.

This event is a 5-6 team mini tournament, and the games will be 20 minutes each in three-team pools.

The Specsavers Two North side’s clubhouse and bar will be open throughout for refreshments, and there will also be a barbecue, weather permitting.

Following the tournament, there will be a presentation in the bar with a raffle/auction taking place.

Anyone requiring further information regarding the event can email Neil Lynch at neil.lynch@walesrugbyleague.co.uk.
