TAG RUGBY ON THURSDAYS

published:May  29   2017

 

The Tag Rugby Summer League kicked off in Mediterranean weather conditions last week and continues on Thursday nights at Dubarry Park. At time of writing, I understand that there is a vacancy available for one more team. Entry fee is €495 per squad which can consist of up to 15 players so that represents decent value over the ten weeks duration of this league. Matches are played in 7-a-side format and the action gets under way at 7 p.m. nightly.

 

GOLF CLASSIC ON JULY 19th

 

BUCCANEERS ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC takes place at Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club on Wednesday, July 19th. Entry fee is €280 per team of four with a reduced rate of €240 for teams playing before 11.30 a.m. Dinner is included in the sub. Early booking is recommended to secure the best timesheet slots. Contact Geraldine at 0861732711 to book.

 

BEST OF LUCK TO ROBBIE AND THE LIONS

 

Best wishes to Robbie Henshaw and all the members of the British & Irish Lions as they head down under to tackle New Zealand. Good luck too to Shane Layden and Anna McGann who are both on Ireland Sevens duty in Amsterdam and Canada respectively.

 

CONGRATULATIONS

 

Congrats to Jordan Conroy on winning yet another award in what has been a remarkable season for him. Buccaneers exciting winger was named Ulster Bank League Division 1B Player of the Year at an event in the Aviva Stadium last Thursday when Ireland coach Joe Schmidt presented him with his award.
