Newsletter – Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August 2023 – Week 1

For more updates on the rugby club, join us on our Facebook and Instagram sites where you can find the latest news, updates and fun!

Welcome back! We hope that everyone had a fun summer break (winter for our southern hemisphere members), and are all ready to go for our third, and longest, term of rugby and touch!

U13 player, Patrick McGuckian, certainly had a great summer holiday back in Ireland, and not only went along to watch the Ireland v Scotland match of the Summer Nation Series, but caught the ball from a Jack Crawley conversion! And yes, he did throw it back!

We have a lot to fit in this term – the SCC Rugby Academy tournament, Rentokil Initial TRC Cup tournament, TRC Junior Tournament, TRC Touch tournament, TRC Girls Contact Tournament and the JRCS Mini tournaments for the U6 to U9 – so let’s get started!


If you have left Singapore, or your child is just taking a break from the Academy this term, please don’t forget to drop a note to Sarah at so we can update TeamSnap and the team lists.

With the hot and humid weather, it’s very easy to become dehydrated, especially if you have been on holiday in cooler climates and may not have acclimatized yet. This is particularly so for the young, and those partaking in outdoor activities – such as rugby and touch!

Dehydration affects our brain’s ability to regulate body temperature, and by the time we experience actual thirst, our brains are already partially dehydrated.

Please make sure your children hydrate well before they come down to training, ensure that they have a full water bottle with them, and encourage them to take sips regularly even if they don’t feel thirsty. If they run out of water, there is water pitch side where they can refill their bottles.

If your team is taking part in games or tournaments, we would kindly ask that you ensure that your child is wearing their full and up-to-date kit. They must wear the latest playing jersey/touch tops which have our sponsors latest logos on them. Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training.

We need to honour our sponsors contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
