Team, we have the numbers, see you out there on the field tomorrow (Saturday) at 10AM! In the meantime, I leave you with one of my best childhood memories of Australian rugby league’s greatest tries: the 1994 79th minute defeat of New South Wales by Queensland in the infamous State of Origin.
All, we’re on for touch rugby tomorrow at 10AM at AdMo (9:30AM if you’d like to get there early to practice)!
Weather is going to be awesome and in the 50s for most of the game. Looking forward to seeing you out there!
Team, you know the drill, it’s mid week and we’re gearing up again for another great turnout for this Saturday’s (March 30) touch rugby game in Adams Morgan.
Let us know if you’re joining by commenting on this post. We’ll start at 10am as usual and if you want to come earlier, we’ll be warming up and practicing at 9:30am. Weather is looking good for the weekend and seems like we’ll actually start playing in the 40/50s rather than 30s for a change! Looking forward to seeing you there!
In the meantime, here are a few tips, tricks and food for thought for the game:
- Communicate well with your team for a better chance of knowing who the dummy half will be and who will get the ball.
- Take the touch! Running up, taking the touch and quickly playing the ball will give you more ground than giving your team mates “hospital passes“.
- Running straight, rather than sideways and backwards, will allow you to gain ground and save time/energy.
- Defend in a line, running up quickly to make the touch without your team mates will leave gaps in the defensive line.
- Try not to bunch up by standing too close to your team mates. Passing is quicker than running and will give you space to draw and pass or try basic moves such as the wrap or cut.
- And as always, have fun!
Have any other tips? Post them in the comments!
TGIF! We have the numbers for another awesome repeat of last week’s touch rugby game in AdMo. Game is same time as usual but we’ll be starting at 10AM SHARP this time as a few people have to leave by 11:30AM. Feel free to join us earlier for some practice and a warm-up.
The big BUT though is the weather. Right now the outlook isn’t so great and looks like we’ll have some light rain while playing. Not a problem, but if we feel the pitch is too soggy to run on, we may have to bail.
If we do bail, it would be good to get numbers for a potential Sunday game (warmer and no rain). Use the poll to let us know whether Sunday could also work in the case of a cancellation tomorrow (which we’ll let you know about tomorrow morning).
Looking forward to seeing you all out there!
Team, it’s time to get numbers for this Saturday’s game! Looking forward to getting a similar turn out to last weekend! Who’s in? Let us know via commenting on this post. We’ll keep you updated should details change, but we’ll plan to start playing at 10AM at the new field in Adams Morgan.
Temp is looking in the balmy 60s region with a chance of rain which should make for a fun (slippery) time.
A few of us are also thinking of grabbing some Saint Patrick’s day drinks shortly after the game so join us if you can. Looking forward to seeing you all out there on the field. For those wanting to come a bit earlier, we’ll likely be there from 9:30AM getting in a bit of a warm-up and practice.
