The past rugby week had some great stuff and some not so great stuff!
Sunday on the deck of the Club saw a mini reunion as many old comrades sauntered in to say hello to old friends Keith and Allison Caldwell from Dunedin, NZ. Below is an awesome threesome from the seventies – Jake, Keith and Salts! 42 years between pics. They look better now than in 1975 and still in the correct positions! Keith Caldwell, Bill Salter & Jake Lipsett
ECAT OPEN – Last weekend also a number of us gather in Amherst NY for the annual ECAT OPEN Golf Tourney. No major injuries this year as Bruce hall survived a battle with a chunk of meat and nobody fell crossing the road. Thanks to Ian McConvey, John Brown and Jake Lipsett. 34 years in a row!!!
Beach Academy tamed the Bulldogs from Belleville at T and G by a 20-12 score whilst the Academy 2 did not play as Belleville was short handed.
The Sr Ladies LOST to Nomads 41-5!
JRS U18 Boys had a great match and reception on Fri vs Hockerill from England with a 20-20 draw. They followed that up with a 17-15 win over the Blues on Sat!
Brantford! – Speaking of lack of success, Beach 1’s and 2’s did not fare well at gGraham Bell’s home town! The 2’s went down 24-40 while the Beach 1’s suffered a whompin at 26-62! C’mon boys we are half way through the sched, time to pick it up!
What can I say! Rugby Volleyball, another successful day. Sold out teams wise, great weather and spectacular athleticism!!!! Kudos to Telf, Myles, the rest of the crew and especially to Charlene and the Club staff. The “new” Pubic Reds were reinvented by the Piglet and almost played up to their namesakes abilities!!!

Back in the Win column! BOTH Beach 1’s and 2’s successful vs Barb at Fletcher’s on Thurs evening!
Beach 2’s – Thrilling end to a tough match as “old man” Bushee comes thru in the clutch! Beach scores a try in the corner at full time but remains a point in arrears. The long angled convert can save the day, and lo and behold, Bushe makes it for a 1 point victory!!!
Beach 1’s – An excellent 1st half with speed and leadership rule the pitch for a 21-7 lead at the half. The Barbs dominate the 2nd half re possession and field position but a stubborn Beach defense keeps them at bay. We break out late with two long tries for a 33-19 win. Still too many errors that give the other side the ball! Good game from newbie Ryan Mitchell and great leadership from Dunham
