RO Hall of Fame – An excellent evening last Sat as Both Kyle Nichols and Beach 1’s from 1980/81 were inducted Arthur Potts local M.P.P. provided attractive Provincial certificates for all players of the 80/81 squad. Also Dave Norris of Busters sponsored the players by providing engraved beer mugs for each player!! A huge thank you to both!!!

The season is over and by all accounts another enjoyable and successful one it was. Different at times and not always quality rugby but entertaining with the addition of some new faces we look forward to next season! However we still have some celebrating to do!!!!
The action ends for another season!
Beach 2’s – Ended on a high note with a large victory over the Cru. Physical game but with the “right” attitude.BOTH teams had the correct idea in that they both had hand made trophies presented to themselves from which they could drink!!! The best “swap” of the day was when Cameron Morgan left as touch judge to be replaced by a young female. !!!!Noisy sideline during the Cup……
Beach 1’s Cup Final – One of the fastest and most physical games I have seen in long time. as distinct underdogs I feel we gave a terrific effort. We came back in the second half to tie it up 27-27 and had a legitimate shot at a win, but not to be as the final was 40-27 Brantford. Difficult to score when the set pieces were not stable enough to generate lots of quality ball and we seemed to lose focus in the very late stages of the game. 5 Yellow cards to us and 3 to Brantford would lead one to believe that the refereeing was not at the same standard as the game itself!, Entertaining, exciting,only the second time in 17 attempts have we lost the Final!!! Excellent crowd of Beach supporters although Union officials did their best to interfere with our enjoyment of the day ,but not to dwell on that just now! Pics on website soon!
Alumni Fall Dinner – Great time last Thurs. as 5 originals joined Ken Bingham and Hasher McMurray in becoming Capped with our new Beach Caps! Present were Gord Forbes, Don and Roger Oliver, Sam Singer and Tom Redwood. Also capped were Gerry deClute and Jack Baird as having our 2 major sponsors for such a long and continuous time( since mid-seventies!) Ian McConvey had the group in stitches with his presentation of the Caterer Award to current 1st team player, Chris Hewitt aka The Tooth Fairy/Whyte Whale. Congratulations!
Great weekend! – Sat Cup semi finals–Beach defeats Scottish 25-17. The lads seem to be rounding into form with a terrific victory over a tough Scottish side who must soon be wondering what they have to do to win a Cup?? Not only was the play a level up but the sideline support was superb as several hundred Beach fans roared approval to only a handful of Scottish supporters. It indeed makes a difference!!! And even the weather cooperated.!!
Beach 2’s – Sunday saw the Beach 2’s roar to life with a resounding 62-10 thumping of the Bay Street Pigs to advance to the Consolation Gee Gage Cup Final on Sat. Opponent undetermined but a super effort from the guys which now has us represented by both teams on Sat at McCormick Cup Day!!Jeff Tomlinson, man of the Match and quality games from Bushe and The Dude!
Notes: Referee and Alum Haley says he has finally made the grade by doing a 7th vs 8th place college game on Sat! […]
