Myles Martin Weekly Alumni Report for June 10th

Balmy Beach Dominates Ajax Wanderers with 45-29 Victory – In an electrifying display of rugby prowess, the Balmy Beach 1s triumphed over the Ajax Wanderers with a decisive 45-29 win on the road. The match was a rollercoaster of emotions, with both teams showcasing their skills, but it was Balmy Beach who emerged victorious, thanks to a formidable performance by their forwards.

From the first whistle, it was clear that Balmy Beach meant business. The forwards set the tone early, establishing dominance in the scrums and rucks. The power and cohesion of the pack were evident, as they relentlessly drove the Ajax forwards backward, winning crucial scrums and providing a steady platform for the backs to launch their attacks.

Myles Martin Weekly Alumni Report for May 27th

Game Recaps from the Weekend

TRU II: Beach vs Bucc’s II 24-12
A close game to open up the TRU II campaign after last week’s default by Mississauga. Bucc’s and Beach both came out swinging in this hard hitting affair. A quick try by Beach put us up 7-0. Beach soon scored again, but the Bucc’s came back to put the score at 12-7 at half time. The second half saw the return to rugby of former First Fifteen 8-man Damien Leonard after a multi year hiatus. Adding a little umph! To the TRU II pack gave us the edge we needed to pump in two more tries. Final Score 24-12.

TRU I: Beach vs Bucc’s I 66-26

2024 U19 Ireland Tour

It came together quickly; towards the end of a successful 2023 U18 season, the coaching staff asked the question “Can we do a tour in the spring?” By September we had 25 players committed and we were on our way to Ireland in March 2024.

Knowing our opposition would be tough, we put together a winter schedule for the players to get them fitter than ever. A 12 week strength and conditioning program was run by Ryan MacSween out of Primal Gym; each Sunday morning 20 players would run, sweat and push harder than they ever have. By February Head Coach Andrew Steele had the squad shaking out the rust and running their attack system at the Metro Sports Dome every […]
