Movember Update

Less than two weeks to go for Movember!
The Studs have been busy growing their manly staches and some great results have already come in. Sadly, not all of us can have such a beautiful ‘stache as Dom James, but we’re doing our best!
At the end of the month we’ll present the final results, all to raise awareness for men’s health!

 

Seccies / Burgers sadly lose to the top team.

Last Sunday was the first away game for the Seccies, in which they immediately faced the top team of the league: RC Drachten 1. Before gathering behind CS, the forwards gathered at the Burger King for a proper breakfast, which quickly showed its effect in the match: the seccies came away with wins from all own scrums and contested many from Drachten!
In what proved to be a tough match, Drachten took advantage of small mistakes on the Seccies’ side, resulting in many tries for the Frysian side, who’s conversion kicker only missed two attempts. However, the Seccies played one of their best games of the season so far, resulting in a try for the Burgers’ Chris, making a fantastic run through the Drachter defense.
Sadly, many players came out injured, we hope to see them back soon!

Results Match Weekend #3

G.S.R.C. 1 takes the shared first place in the league!

This sunday saw play from both the first and second teams. Sadly, the seccies had to take a tough punishment from the Burgers’ third team. Even though the match saw some good phases of play from the seccies, the Burgers were very much too strong, ending the match at 0 – 89. Luckily, many Burgers fell in the third half, showing some other qualities of the Studs.
Luckily, the flagship of the G.S.R.C. played an incredible game. After being up 7 – 19 after the first half, the Studs steamed onto a 7 – 61 away win against DRC Phoenix. Loads of lads managed to score tries and Cormac snagged the Man of the Match title.

Congrats lads!

Results Match Weekend #2

The first team comes out on top whilst the second team played a great second half!

Last Sunday featured home matches for both the first team and the seccies together with the Burgers. The seccies kicked off at 13.00h where they faced a physically strong RC Greate Pier 2. After being down by many tries at half time, they bounced back to play a strong second half, showing great skill and potential from the studs.
Afterwards, the first team kicked off at 14.30h featuring a great line-up including new lads and returning players. After a first half where the game could go in any direction, with both teams grabbing the lead, the studs returned to the field for a strong second half. Sadly Jan had to leave the field injured, but the studs came out on top, earning a well-desired second place in the league!
