While rugby clubs and theatres in Wales remain closed, National Dance Company Wales will bring the rugby community together in a virtual online rugby club on Thursday 16 July at 7PM.

Former NDCWales Artistic Director Fearghus Ó Conchúir created Rygbi: Annwyl i Mi/ Dear to Me in 2019. It premièred at the National Eisteddfod in Llanwrst before touring to Japan during the Rugby World Cup and across Wales over the last few months.

The online première was in April, and now audiences have the chance to watch the pre-recorded piece as well as hear Fearghus Ó Conchúir in conversation with WRU’s General Manager Women and Girls Rugby Charlotte Wathan and WRU’s Mixed Ability Rugby Lead Coach Darren Carew with rugby fanatic, author and Western Mail newspaper columnist Carolyn Hitt talking about the sport from a fan's perspective.

The event can be accessed on NDCWales' Facebook Page on 16 July and NDCWales will be hosting all video content on its web site and YouTube channel to watch again at any time.
