The Season Starts Anew Saturday

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, it’s opening week of the 2014 Fall season. It’s officially rugby season. It’s hunting season and we start off with an all too familiar foe.

Saturday, August 23, we venture across the rover into the untamed wilds of the West side. There, waiting for us, are the unwashed masses, the pretenders to the Cleveland rugby throne, the guys who continue to claim to be the best rugby team in the city. Join us as we remind them what the facts are and who stands tall in this city.

There will be two games, with the A game kicking off at 1:00pm and the B game to follow immediately. Active players, everyone who comes will be able to play. Not-so-active fans, come out and crowd the sidelines to cheer on the Club. The games are at Impett Park in Cleveland.

Those looking to play should be at the field no later than 11:30am to get ready.
See you at the pitch.

As an aside, there has been a scheduling switch. Due to issues out of our control, the dates with the Detroit RFC have been switched. We will be going to Detroit on 10/4 and hosting on 11/15.

First 15s Session Down

A lot of new faces and a lot of the usual suspects showed up today. Glad to see everyone out and looking fit. Play was crisp and on point, with the new guys catching on quickly.

We’re on the right track for another strong successful Fall, but it’s not too late to join. If you’re interested in playing for Cleveland’s premier rugby team head to the Metro Peaks Pitch Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm. All are welcome. Directions are on the Practice page.

Keep up with the Cleveland Rugby Club as the Fall goes on and come take in a game or two.

See you at the pitch.

Fun Time Fitness with the NDC Boys

Just finished playing Take-A-Lap Sevens at Progressive with some of the Notre Dame College boys.

The youngsters put on a good showing, especially when the heavier players got hands on the ball. But the hands down MVP of the day was one Mark Derrickson, who managed to sneak his way past the opposing defense numerous times on the day.

We’ll be out again Thursday at 6:00pm, at the Progressive soccer complex, squeezing the last bit of 7s juice out of the summer before we get into 15s.

See you at the pitch.
