Visitors to Navan RFC regularly comment on the array of wooden plaques with colourful crests that are displayed throughout the Clubhouse at Balreask Old. They are the legacy of a rugby tradition that when two Clubs meet in a competitive match for the first time, their respective Club Presidents present one another with their “coat of arms” in the form of the plaques you see today on our walls. Navan RFC has played many clubs over the years however last Saturday was the first competitive meeting with Dungannon.

As you can see, it was a clean pass; no chance of   knock-on ….!!!!
