Barney is to host a rugby festival on Friday, 9 August 2019 featuring four professional rugby clubs

It’s exciting times at Barney as we play host to four professional rugby clubs – Newcastle Falcons, Leinster, Ulster and Yorkshire Carnegie – whose academy sides are in town this week.

The Falcons and Leinster will be staying at Barney for the week, putting in the hours with comprehensive training camps taking full advantage of the great facilities we have at school, with Ulster and Carnegie joining later in the week.

To round-off the visit, this Friday (9 August 2019) U18s teams from each club will be taking part in a rugby festival from 1pm on the school rugby pitches.

Everyone is welcome to attend the festival, so if you’d like to come along to watch some top class rugby, get in touch via social media or by emailing
