Children to join in the fun over the Magic Weekend.

Children aged nine to eleven years old will join in the fun over the Magic Weekend when they take part in the Mancunians Magic 5's.

The Mancunians Magic 5's is a Rugby League festival for children aged 9-11 which will be held at East Manchester Academy, just metres away from the Etihad Stadium on the afternoon of Saturday May 17.

The Magic 5's will be played under the Primary Rugby League format, which is a small sided format of rugby league which enables the children taking part to have loads of fun and learn new skills at the same time. You can read more about Primary Rugby League at
