Manx Rugby season kicks-off

Restructure of leagues with just domestic action

With Douglas, Ramsey and Vagabonds not able to compete off-island leagues due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a new format for domestic Rugby has been put in place.

The highest ranked side is Douglas and they have combined with their second team and split into north and south sides, depending on where each player went to school.

Ramsey, Vagabonds and Southern Nomads join them in the Manx Trophy.

The Manx Bowl features Vagabonds Ladies in non-contact fixtures alongside Castletown, Emerging Nomads, Ramsey "B", Vagabonds Hornets and Western Vikings.

The opening fixtures on Saturday afternoon include Douglas South against Vagabonds and Southern Nomads versus Ramsey at Ballakilley in the Manx Trophy.
