What a great ‘Intro to Rugby’ day

August 13th, 2017|Comments Off on What a great ‘Intro to Rugby’ day

What a great ‘Intro to Rugby’ day we had yesterday. Despite the morning downpour we had over 40 people come to try out rugby for the first time 🙂 It seems we have some very quick learners, as in the touch rugby match we played at the end we had a newbie try and finished with a draw. Was a perfect end to fantastic day!!

Here’s some great images of the day from  Vincent Gehrke – Sportfotografie

If you missed out yesterday, then come to our open trainings every Sunday at Gleisdreieck @ 13.00. Next one is Sun 20th Aug. We always plan exercises that are suitable for every level including absolute beginners. Come on down!!

Bruisers in the Motzstraßenfest and the Berlin Sevens tournament

July 17th, 2017|Comments Off on Bruisers in the Motzstraßenfest and the Berlin Sevens tournament

What a busy weekend this was for the Bruisers!! While half our guys were up at RK03 battling away in the Berlin Sevens tournament, the rest of us were busy working the crowds at Motzstraßenfest – Europe’s largest gay and lesbian street festival.

Up at the Station Buschalle, our boys did us proud, scoring the first try of the tournament and putting in some sterling work against some very stiff opposition. Final placing 14th overall 🙂
Results:

RK 03 Berlin vs Bruisers 38:5
USV Potsdam vs Bruisers 47:0
Platzierungsspiel
Bruisers vs SC Siemensstadt 34:10
Match for place 13
Bruisers vs RK 03 Piraten 19:33

Try scorers:
Juan 5
Greg 2
Tom 2
Freddie 1

Many thanks to Berlin Grizzlies Rugby Club, Berlin Irish RFC e.V., Berliner SV 1892 Rugby, Rugby-Potsdam and Sport Club Siemensstadt Rugby for lending us players when needed!

Meanwhile down at the street fair we we were wooing the crowds – young and old, with our impromptu street rugby, pom-pom juggling and winning smiles.

We had a fantastic response and signed up over 90 people for our upcoming ‘Intro to Rugby’ day on Aug 12th – including 25+ women for a potential Bruisers Women team! Looks like next season will be our best yet

*** auf Deutsch unten ***

The Berlin Bruisers e.V. – the first gay and inclusive rugby team in Germany – are turning 5 year old! From humble beginnings on the fields of Tiergarten to contenders the German Regionaliga and in major international rugby tournaments, the team has grown tremendously and the boys are getting stronger and stronger! However, what would be a rugby club without its fans and supporters? And without the fun? That‘s why they are inviting you to their 5th Birthday Bash to their fourth installment of a wild and crazy Variety night!.

It will be an evening of spectacular performance, ranging from drag to magic, live music, juggling and comedy. An evening filled with international and local artists, and most importantly, the sexy Berlin Bruisers – the most colorful German rugby team – who for this occasion will showcase their artistic side.

This wild group is disciplined by the best fitness coach of Scotland, Gieza Poke. At her side, Judy LaDivina, one of Berlin‘s most beautiful Drag Queens, will moderate this hot evening.

What would be a birthday celebration without music? For this we have the most popular queer hip-hop singer in the world as a guest: Rica Shay, fresh from Los Angeles. Laughter is the best medicine and you will be getting a large dose of it from David Hailey, an hilarious new Berlin’s comedian. The strange couple Fannie HeadĂ€k and Mandie Minx will take you on a magical and deranged musical journey into the 50s. Joy and Clarence Pickles, star couple from the good times of the BBC, will hit you with a hilarious magic show! Luke Burrage is the best combat juggler in the world, and he will show us his talents with balls and clubs.
The Berlin Bruisers will be also on the stage. The “Bruisers Circus” will show you that the guys are not only good players but also musicians, jugglers, comedians, dancers and magicians! And then, off come the clothes, a timeless tradition: the Bruisers Striptease! Naked, sweating skin is always a sight of beauty! Pros also have a good place on stage: Viva Lamore, Neo-Burlesque dancer from New York, and Alisa Saric, a passionate pole dancer from Berlin, are simply more delicious than a birthday cake. Go ahead, take a bite!

The revenues of the evening will help the Bruisers to continue pursuing their stated goal:
To clearly tell and show the world that it doesn‘t matter the color of your skin, what your sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status is, as long as you work to be stronger together, on the field and in life. With your donations, the Bruisers will be able to participate in international Gay Rugby tournaments, as well as successfully participate in many LGBT* events, and even in workshops against bullying in Berlin schools.

Das erste schwul und inklusives Rugby Team Deutschland, die Berlin Bruisers e.V., werden 5 Jahre alt! Von den Rasen des Tiergartens, bis zu den Rugby Felder von Madrid, hat das Team viel erlebt und die Jungs werden immer stÀrker!
Aber was wĂ€re ein Rugby Team ohne Supporter_innen? Und ohne Spaß? Sie laden dann zum vierten Mal zu ihrer verrĂŒckten VarietĂ©-Nacht!

Ein gutes Dutzend spektakulĂ€rer Acts, von Drag und Magie, Livemusik, bis Jonglage und Comedy – eine Nacht mit internationalen KĂŒnstlern und natĂŒrlich den Berlin Bruisers, der buntesten Rugbymannschaft Deutschlands, die dem Publikum, ihre kunstvollste Seite zeigen wird!

Diese wilde Truppe wird von der beste Fitness Trainerin Schottlands, Gieza Poke, diszipliniert. An ihrer Seite, Judy LaDivina, eine der schönste Drag Queens Berlin, wird diesen heißen Abend moderieren.

Was wĂ€re eine Geburtstagsfeier ohne Musik? DafĂŒr haben wir der angesagteste queer Hip-Hop SĂ€nger der Welt als Gast: Rica Shay, frisch aus Los Angeles zugeflogen. Lachen ist das schönste Geschenk. Und da werden die Gelegenheiten nicht fehlen! David Hailey wird uns das donnernde Leben eines neuen Berliners vorstellen und das seltsame PĂ€rchen Fannie HeadĂ€k und Mandie Minx werden Euch in eine musikalische und verrĂŒckte Reise in die 50er mitnehmen. Joy und Clarence Pickles, Star-Paar von den guten Zeiten der BBC, werden Euch mit einer urkomischen Zaubershow vom Hocker hauen! Luke Burrage ist der beste „Kombat-Juggler“ der Welt, und er wird uns sein Talent mit BĂ€llen und Keulen zeigen. Die Berlin Bruisers werden auch selber auf der BĂŒhne sein. Mit dem „Bruisers Circus“ wird es Euch gezeigt, dass die Jungs nicht nur gute Spieler sind aber auch Musiker, Juggler, Komiker, TĂ€nzer und Zauber sind! Und dann, weg mit den Kleidungen! Es ist Tradition: der Bruisers Strip! Und nackte Haut ist immer einen schöner Geschenk! Aber Profis haben auch einen guten Platz auf der BĂŒhne: Viva Lamore@, Neo-Burlesque TĂ€nzerin aus New York, und Alisa Saric, leidenschaftliche Pole TĂ€nzerin aus Berlin, sind einfach leckerer als Geburtstagstorte!.

Die EinkĂŒnfte des Abends helfen den Bruisers, auch weiterhin ihr Ziel zu verfolgen:
Aller Welt klarzumachen, dass es völlig egal ist, welche Hautfarbe, sexuelle Orientierung, geschlechtliche IdentitĂ€t oder HIV-Status du hast, solange du im Team der Bruisers daran arbeitest, gemeinsam stark zu sein – auf dem Spielfeld und im Leben. Mit euren Spenden werden die Bruisers auch zukĂŒnftig an internationalen Gay Rugby Turnieren teilnehmen können sowie an vielen LGBT*I-Veranstaltungen und sogar Workshops gegen Bullying in den Berliner Schulen erfolgreich weiterfĂŒhren.
