Once again the RCL Old Farts got together for a short road trip, to a Beach Rugby tournament held in Spiez. A great train trip a great day was had by all with two wins from two games. Unfortunately we could not participate in the third game to be held on the Sunday as Saturday evening we were to celebrate Guido's 50th!! But a wonderful place, a well organised tournament (thank you RC Bern & RC Thun) and a Great day out with Mates.
Well we had a very active weekend, with a full day of Rugby on Saturday (Women's, kids and Mens teams all playing at home) and a multi sport Sunday afternoon in Kriens where Roy & Annika got to try out some new sports e.g. Swiss wrestling (Schwingen), Judo, Bob Sleigh starts, climbing
And teh weather played along, a lovely weekend.
The RC Dangels had there last 15's game of the current season, all though it was a mighty win to finish off (90-0), the bar has been set for next season already to claim back the national title from what looks like RC Bern. The guys Also played at home and ran a good win in miserable conditions. Looking very sharp and fit in the first half with some great rugby being played, changes were made in the 2nd half which in my opinion unsettled the fine performance they had in the 1st half, but a win is a win.
Thanks to the score keepers below ;-)
The Dangels won their home game up in Basel v Cern with a confident score of 46-3, what ever happened to the first half of the season we will never know but it looks like we have corrected it!
Roy and Annika were at the Kiddies rugby on Sunday morning, while I was helping out with the coaching, one of those mornings were it was overcast to start, rained in the middle and the wind came a chilled all the little ones at the end... So much they couldn't undo their laces (remember those days 😁).
Unfotunately the saints lost but put in a good show, Kenya won their first World Series 7's tournament against Fiji convincingly and the England ladies won the women's World Series in Canada....
phew what a rugby weekend.
Chris, Sarah, Roy and Annika blogging around to keep in touch with family and friends all around.
