Gerry Allen Weekly Rugby Report
Special Guest! Many of U will remember, Judah Campbell, who suffered a severe neck injury in rugby and several of our members ie Geoff R Spaz and Huggy spearheaded a fundraiser for Judah at the Club. Judah now attends Brock U and is hoping to attend our last League game this Sat to say thank you personally. If u are at the game, stop by to say hello and make the lad feel welcome!

ALUMNI FALL DINNER!!! Thurs Oct 23rd @ the Club Hopefully 2 days prior to the Cup Final with us in it!!!! More details in next week report. See U on Sat – UP THE BEACH!

Nevertheless impressive performances had by everyone in the blue and gold this past weekend…The Firsts clinched the league and avenged the only loss of the season with a 60-24 drubbing over the Harlequins in Brantford. Solid team defense early on led to a tremendous transition game from our speedy back line. Fullback Conor McCann chipped in with the hat trick!

Not a bad day for the 2’s either. Although it looked bleak at practice earlier in the week, the 2nds strung enough bodies together to beat up on a woeful Brantford squad 45-5. Regardless of the outcome next week, the 2’s will wrap up the season up in 2nd place behind the Scottish.

The regular season concludes Saturday when Stoney Creek pays a visit. Kickoff times as per usual – 1:30 & 3:00

Also this 6 members of the BBC will represent Ontario this Thursday against BC at Guelph. The Blues are back in action Sunday when they host the Prairie Wolfpack in Peterborough.

The first round of the McCormick Cup begins on September 27th. Hope to see you there!

UP THE BEACH!!!

Rep Rugby

The Ont Blues continue their quest for 4! 2 Big wins Thurs over the Prairie Wolf Pack and Sunday over the BC Bears Now 3-0 three games left, Sept 18, 21 and 27. Our friend Gord Currie reports that Beacher Hank MacQeen played a major role in the W over BC!

Beach Sr
Beach2’s – The boys appear to be returning to form, just at the right time, perhaps, with a 49-7pounding of the Barbs. Some new faces but everyone contributed, including some Academists!

Beach 1’s – A very solid, workman-like game with a 45-22 win over the Barbs. Some early shakes but soon overcome to constantly apply pressure to the Barbs who are struggling to avoid relegation. Even though we were missing 10-11 guys who have made significant contributions to this side over the season, thus far, the 15 who started and the subs, exhibited a nose-to-the-grindstone attitude and got the job done.It is a testament to our present depth of skilled players. I am sure it will continue as we will be missing many players for the next 2 League games and the first round of the CUP! Here is a list of players who did NOT play for the 1’s on Sat

Scott Dunham (Blues), Hank McQueen (Blues), Dan Moor(Blues) Haddon Murray (Blues), Jacob Rumball(Blues,Queen’s), Lucas Rumball(Blues Queen’s), Toni Godziki (Rock), Colin Alexander(Rock), Mathew Mufandedza (Brock), Michael Douris (Queen’s), Tyler Allen( injury), Andrew Bushe(injury) !!!!!!!!!
