Tough loss last week against the Caps. We lost by 12-10 in horrible wet conditions. There were some positives in that our defense stopped them scoring any tries, but injuries (two scrum-halfs Crackers and Saba), and indisipline took their toll.
This week we are going over to play Meralomas RFC (Click here for a map to the ground: http://goo.gl/o5miE) at Connaught Park.
Kick off is at 1pm. Be at the field by 12pm so that we can warm up right.
Transit there is pretty good, but if you need a ride be at the old clubhouse on 14th at 11.30am.
After the game we will stay for a burger and a beer then head back to the Lounge for a few beers. Then at 8pm, the Dropbears, Vancouver’s ONLY Aussie rock covers band will be playing their first live gig in the Legion on 6th & Commercial Drive.
This musical supergroup features three Scribes: Aussie Josh, Dave Paige, and Mark Bergshoff. Tell your friends…RSVP:
We are getting food catered for all future home games by The Butler Did It Catering. Going forward, all players must bring $10 before our games to pay for their food, and their opposite number’s–this is customary in rugby and something the Scribes want to continue.
Prassad and Wayne are coaching the Windermere Junior Scribes side. They had a game last week and narrowly lost. If anyone is interested in helping out with the juniors, then please see Prassad. This is important for the future of rugby in Vancouver and for the future of the Scribes.
Scribes are going to enter several summer 7s, 10s and 15s tournaments during the summer.
We are looking into jerseys for the combined touring side and that we are looking into getting custom scribes jerseys for the other 7’s and 10’s tournaments during the summer – more details to follow next week.
