The Clyde Earnscleugh Rugby Football Club is keen to hear from anyone interested in playing premier rugby next season.

The club is also sending a team to the Gold Coast to play two games in February and March.

Newly elected club president Jason Crane said the club did not field a premier team last season, which was the second time in about 10 years it was unable to do so.

However, it had attracted quite a bit of interest from people keen to sign up for the upcoming season.

The Gold Coast trip would be from February 27 to March 1 and the team would play against the Surfers Paradise and Brisbane Irish rugby football teams in the four days it was there.

He said the club was contributing $10,000 with a further $700 to $800 per player for accommodation, breakfasts and travel required.

If anyone is interested in playing for the club, Mr Crane can be contacted on 027624-6836.
