Training Update

Training has been ongoing throughout July. I know its the holiday season etc. but the turnout has been abysmal. It is the same few showing up all the time. The tournament is on August 14th and we have all yet to get together for one session. The schedule of training is as follows:

Tuesday 27th July (Physical training) Slottskogen 6.45pm
Thursday 29th July (Skills and Practice) Spartacus /Partille 7pm
Wed August 4th (Physical training) Slottskogen 6.45pm
Thursday 5th August (Skills and Practice) Spartacus/Partille 7pm
Tuesday 10th August (Skills/Practice/Physical) Slottskogen 6.45pm

Please make and effort to attend!

Tournament August 14th

Plans are moving along nicely for the tournament behind the scenes. A mail with all the information will go out later next week with all the relevant info. If you could all do a small favour and look out for small prizes. We hope to hold a raffle on the night to raise funds for the club so any small donation (bottle of wine/food) anything from your company or yourselves would be greatly appreciated. More details to follow and all help on the day would be greatly appreciated.

4 ladies have confirmed from Gothenburg for August 14th. Please confirm as soon as you can whether you will attend as there is a need to confirm numbers for catering/lunch packs etc. Same for the lads, can you confirm your attendance or otherwise to Billy or Declan as soon as you can. The following people have confirmed : Niall/David Burke/Peter Baston/Moises/Billy/Declan/

2 sanctioned GAA referees will be travelling to our tournament (Martin O Donnell & Mick Cryan).

Guys, a reason we need to get together and train is a review of the standings as they are after the Oslo round. We are plum last on 29pts - we are tied with Copenhagen but they have won more head to heads. Despite heroic efforts at all the tournaments so far, we find ourselves trailing. A good Gothenburg tournament and we can find ourselves right back in the mix. Come on lets put in the effort!

Lads, if anyone is interested in travelling to Oslo for round 3 of the Scandinavian championship, please get in contact immediately. As a team, we are not attending based on discussions but Copenhagen said they will combine with us for the day. Looks like it will be a one day trip i.e. up and down same day and you could hook up with Copenhagen on their way through Gothenburg. Please let it be known by next Wednesday at the latest.

Gothenburg Tournament (Aug 14)

We need to have a meeting to discuss the plans for this tournament and what needs to be done.The pitch is booked but that s about it. We can discuss this at training next Thursday. 5 teams will be attending (based on discussions with all the other teams as of last Saturday). There will be a final draft of the information pack. Just waiting on final confirmation from the Dubliners that they can take the function afterwards. Tournament fee will be 250 SEK. Think we also need to add bank account details so we get money before the day.

There will also be a ladies game on the day so ladies, lets start turning up for training and have a good day. It will be a combined Gothenburg/Copenhagen/Malmo -v- Stockholm side.


Training recommences on Thursday July 1st at 7pm at Spartacus rugby grounds in Partille.We have 5/6 weeks to the Gothenburg round and we need to get it going again and put in a good effort.
