Gerry Allen Weekly Rugby Report
Rep Rugby – Congrats to Ont Blues with 4th consecutive McTier Cup( National Champs) 45-5 win over the Rock on Sat. 6 Beachers donned Blue unies while 2 Blue and Goldies wore Rock colours! Great job!

Beach Sr Rugby – Beach 2’s handle the Scottish 20-8 in first round of Gee Gage Cup round robin. Not with the same flare evidenced in the last few games but tidy enuf!. This squad should get a bit of a boost with the return of our Rep players next week.

Beach 1’s – A somewhat interesting match. After 2 fairly easy tries early, the lads let down their guard and Brampton took advantage of some sloppy play Score 20 12 at half( This included a last second penalty by us)The second half saw a much different scenario with the guys applying overmatching skill and speed as Brampton gradually folded in the heat! Final 67-12.

Next week – Sat Oct 4th

Beach 1’s Round 2 of elimination games of McCormick Cup. At HOME to the Ottawa Indians 3 pm KO
Beach 2’s continue round robin play at Oakville 12 noon KO
…Some interesting decisions for our selectors as our rep players return and everyone else is playing well! Nice to have this kind of depth problem!

Judah-sep2014-600

The pic is Brian Spanton and Judah Campbell. Judah is the rugby player from BC who severely injured his spine a while ago. Brian, Geoff and Huggy amongst others held a fundraiser at the Club last winter to assist Judah and on Sat, Judah attended our game to say thanks!. He is looking good and it is super to see this sort of respect and interaction within our rugby community.

Judah Campbell with Gord Young and Huggy at Beach 65-29 win over Stoney Creek. Continued good luck Judah!

Bing has officially retired as Club Historian but we still expect him (an Original Rugbyist) on the sidelines His sideline acumen, along with the rest of the rogues gallery is still required in the push for another Cup. Besides, he’s one of the spectators that i can see over!!!!! Ken,Thanks for all of your tireless efforts over many years. Tough shoes to fill.
