Development National Touch Series Round 2 preview

The Development National Touch Series heads back to Banbury this Saturday, July 10th, for Round 2.

Cheltenham Tigers and EY London Vipers will be the teams wanting to build on their good showings in Round 1, but there are a few other clubs to watch out for, not least Yorkshire Thorns, who are making their first appearance in the Development NTS in 2021.

Other teams to keep an eye on include PFT Touch Rugby and Bristol Jets, who both impressed last time out, and Galaxy London, who will have a tasty London derby against the Vipers in the pool stages.

Pools have been drawn based on the finishing positions in Round 1, and the morning’s live streaming slots have been allocated so that by the time it comes to lunchtime every team who has been in both Rounds 1 and 2 will have been shown at least once.

The tap off for the first game will be 10:00am, with a slightly extended lunchtime to allow for the afternoon to proceed smoothly!
