Senior Rugby Tour to Cheltenham: Vigo RFC


Senior Rugby Tour to Cheltenham

During their second senior rugby tour with Burleigh Travel, Vigo RFC chose to visit Cheltenham for two nights to sample the local atmosphere of this traditional rugby area.  During their rugby tour to Cheltenham, the players from Vigo also managed to squeeze in a fixture against local rugby club Minchinhampton RFC who provided the group with a well matched game and some great hospitality to round off their tour.
