Nigel Owens offers help to rugby clubs devastated by Storm Dennis flooding

Welsh rugby referee Nigel Owens has offered to help clubs affected by flooding from Storm Dennis.

On social media, Owens made the offer to give clubs signed jerseys for them to auction off.

This comes as rugby pitches and clubhouses across south Wales were hit by rising flood waters, with Cross Keys and Bedwas RFC seeing some of the worst damage.

Cross Keys RFC saw their pitch and clubhouse flooded after Wales saw a month worth of rain in just 48 hours.

They were supported in their clean-up by players and staff at the Dragons.

Bedwas RFC has launched a fundraising campaign saying their insurance will not cover flood damage.

The club says there has been tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage and the community has pulled together to help in their clean-up.

The Welsh Rugby Union says they are putting a plan in place to support affected rugby clubs.
