The 2018 Decky Memorial Touch rugby tournament at Loughor RFC

The 2018 Decky Memorial Touch rugby tournament at Loughor RFC is looking for teams! Get in touch as soon as possible because places are filling up fast.

Last years Touch Rugby Tournament was a huge success with over 750 people attending and we raised over £5000 for the cardiac unit in Morriston Hospital. While last year was during my term as mayor; myself and Decky’s friends and family have decided to run it annually.

This year’s tournament will be at Loughor Rugby Club on Sunday 26th August from 11am and all proceeds will continue to go to the ABMU Cardiac Department in Morriston (charity no. 1122805) in memory of a close friend and team mate Richard ‘Decky’ Thomas who passed away last year at age 29 and also to raise awareness of Cardiomyopathy.

The tournament will be consisting of up to 20 teams of 12 players and rugby games will be planned every 15 mins from 11am! We will have a live band and hog roast for the evening festivities and we have also kindly been donated signed British Lions kit as well as Ospreys kit and Swansea Football kit for auction.

If is anything like last year then it should be a great day!
