London RL 9's
Posted 17 April 2011 - 09:55 AM
Did anyone get along the London 9's? Would love to hear your thoughts.
I unfortunately had other commitments, but our Try Tag Rugby team made the Grand Final going down to Hammersmith. Along the way we claimed the scalps of some of the biggest names in London RL such as Skolars, Hemel, West London and Storm. A wonderful effort from a bunch of blokes who had never played together before. I am pretty sure we made the London RL community sit up and take notice of us.
A few interesting facts about the team, around 13 of the 15 are regular Tag Rugby players in our London leagues. One of which, Tim Ross is our England Tag Rugby coach for the series against Australia later this year. At least 3 of the squad have played junior reps with NRL teams, so it was no surprise to me to see them do so well.
Anyway, looking forward to hearing some first hand reports from people who were there.

Hammersmith beat TryTag in the final of the Cup, and South London beat Skolars in the final of the Plate.
It was a long day, but most people had fun, there were no serious injuries I was aware of, and it was a good way to blow away some cobwebs before the regular season starts.
