By Dave Dow | 04/08/2018

  • Swansea Women's RFC 2018-19 Premier League fixtures announced.
  • Successful 7s build up during off season.
  • Whites determined to raise bar again.


The Swansea Women's RFC have been busy since the 2017-18 season saw them retain their league title and Super Cup in back to back doubles.

Now with the release of the first part of the Wales Women's Premiership fixtures, they look forward to moving forward again.

The time spent since the league and cup were secured for a second successive time by the St Helen's outfit, has been well spent. Between the end of the Welsh season in May and the end of July the squad have been involved in sevens tournaments and have achieved their goals of enjoying the game, further  improving passing skills, giving everyone game time, introducing new players to the game, establishing a core of players for the coming campaign and finally - winning the RFU English National Tournament.

Four of the six tournaments prior to the RFU National Finals were won, the Whites being runners up in the other two. Swansea Women's RFC entered the competitions drawing also players from other clubs who wished to get playing experience and the combined group have performed exceptionally well and attained a high degree of success as the table below shows. the icing on the cake was the win at Bath on the last weekend in July.

 

 Trimsaran - Sun 27 May WON beat Penybanc 35-10 Player of Tournament: Keira Bevan
