The Sonics 1st Team will compete in the West of England league in 2016 against local rivals including Swindon St George, Somerset Vikings, Cheltenham Phoenix, Bath and Wiltshire Romans, and their oldest rivals Gloucestershire Warriors.
The club stepped down from competing in the Conference League South in 2015 – having played 3 seasons at tier 3 of the RFL’s pyramid. The 1st team moved up to Tier 3 in 2012 when they competed in the National Conference Division 3 – a subsequent reorganisation has seen a southern based league developed at the same level since 2013.
In 2016 the club will be looking to go one better than last season and win the West of England Division. Additionally, the club will be aiming to play some second team and/or Masters (over 35) fixtures for those wishing to play a slightly more relaxed level of RL.
The club will also be taking part in a number of 9′s tournaments and friendlies as well as holding a number of social events including a trip to the Magic Weekend in Newcastle and International matches.
