THE SCC RUGBY ACADEMY’S THE FRY GROUP 7S AND TOUCH TOURNAMENT

After two long weekends of rugby, our tournament is over for this year. And what a tournament it was with great performances by all our teams.

The Cup finalists played in front of the packed stadiums at the SCC7s and we had some great results.

The U15 had a very tough game with some crunching tackles against the Centaurs Archers, but came out the victors to win their age group for the 2nd consecutive year.

The U13 were very much in the driving seat in their game against Dragons Green, but they still ended the game with the bang, when as the final whistle blew, Louis Cook grabbed the ball from under Dragon’s nose on the SCC try line, and ran it the length of the pitch to score a final try.

The U10 played an intelligent, structured game to dominate Dragons White and record a 25-5 victory, and took home a well deserved trophy.

The Touch U12 played superbly against the ever mighty TRC Touch and held them off to a tryless game for both sides. Coaches from both sides agreed that the girls had played so well that they would share the win.

A HUGE THANK YOU

We can’t emphasize how grateful we are to those who volunteered to help out at the tournament over both weekends.

At our main tournament, our pitch marshalls worked long hours despite the heat to help keep the games running smoothly. We could not have run the tournament without you.

And last weekend, our professional Cone Crew – made up of Richard Cook, David Griffiths, Marc Leaver and Rob Le Grice, divided up the pitch and layed try lines in less than a minute with military precision. What a team!

KIT PICK UP

Kit pick up will be back at Dempsey as normal this weekend. Please don’t forget to drop by the clubhouse to pick up your Paladin orders.

SCC RUGBY ACADEMY TOURNAMENT VOLUNTEERS

Our tournament is fast approaching, and in order to ensure the tournament runs smoothly, we are going to require the help of volunteers.

Pitch marshals should be willing to work at least half a day – we will ensure there are enough refreshments through the day to keep you going!

BALL BOYS FOR THE SCC7S

The SCC International Rugby 7s will be played on the Padang from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November. The SCC are looking for Ball Girls and Boys (aged 9 upwards) plus adult volunteers throughout the 3 days and would like to give the opportunity to as many Academy members as possible.

With the SCC 7s attracting International and professional teams the Ball Boys and Girls have to work hard to a standard that befits the event and the professional players that are on the pitch. However, this is something that the kids really enjoy, with many doing it regularly every year, as they get to be up close to the action on the pitch and be very much part of the event.

Please complete the form at the following link in order to sign up – SCC7s Ball Boy/Girl Volunteer Form

KL SARACENS TOURNAMENT 2018 – CANCELLED

Sadly, we have had notice this week from KL Saracens Rugby club that their annual tournament in KL, and our main rugby tour, won’t be happening early next year. They have cited “the current business climate, the Club’s funding and the lack of sponsors” as the major factors behind the decision. We are sorry if you have made arrangements or kept the dates free but we are sharing this information as soon as we have received it. We are now busy looking at alternatives and will share this with you as soon as possible.
