Rugby Season starts again

September 1st, 2017|Comments Off on Rugby Season starts again

Here are our matches for the autumn of 2017. We need lots and lots of supporters to come cheer us on and watch gorgeous men pile into each other in pursuit of an egg-shaped ball 😉 What could be more fun!!

We kick off with a home derby against our brothers at BSC Rugby so the more purple there the better!! There’ll be a BBQ afterwards for both teams and supporters. Kick off is at 15.00 at BSC, Hubertsallee 50. See you there!

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
