Magic day of rugby at Cents
Toulmin Drive to host three games back-to-back
ST ALBANS Centurions have announced that they are hosting this year’s ‘Magic Round’ of the Rugby League Conference Southern Premiership at their Toulmin Drive ground on Saturday.

Club chairman Brian Parker said: “This is a new concept for amateur rugby in the south of England, and we are very honoured that they have chosen our club.
“Not only will there be three top class games going on, but we also expect several London Merit League games to be played at the same time on the club’s second pitch.
“We are hoping that a Centurions development team will also be competing.
“St Albans Centurions have arranged for a beer and refreshment tent and a barbeque that promises to be a bit special, so if anyone wants to come along and support St Albans’ most successful rugby team, and have an enjoyable afternoon watching some great rugby, then they will be most welcome.”
