A Glorious Day for Minis Rugby

We welcomed not just spectacular sunshine and GHK to Hughenden on Sunday 11 November but also a good
contingent of Warriors players courtesy of HJRFC sponsors McCrea Financial Services. Despite Remembrance Sunday parades which had depleted both clubs, GHK brought strong squads from P2-3 upwards for a 1000 start in the bright sunshine.

The squads were then treated to some top notch coaching tips from the professional players – amazing how much more they listen to someone from the Warriors than Mums and Dads! Everyone got well and truly stuck in and at least one of the Warriors ended up on his back in the mud. Massive thanks to Leila, Ratu and Samuela for joining us and very special thanks to legendary Dougie Hall for the P6-7 tackling and scrum coaching!

After a well-observed minute’s silence, we got down to the serious part of the day, the games. Great to play under blue skies at this time of the year and each team gave a good account of itself some with more success than others but always in a very friendly environment (at least among the coaches) with all hostilities brought to an end by the final whistle. Special kudos to Italian international back row Samuela Vunisa for refereeing his first ever match without ever needing the TMO.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed yummy pasta from on site restaurant Cafe Source Too along with cupcakes and sport bottles again courtesy of McCrea Financial Services.

Let’s hope we have some more days like that before the weather closes in!

Hills Mini Rugby Returns

Welcome Back!

HJRFC minis start back this Sunday 20 August at the new time of 1100. Feedback has generally been that a slightly earlier time would suit most. Let us know if doesn’t or you would prefer an earlier time yet.

We’ll be training at Hughenden each Sunday with our first game on 10 September.

Get involved! We are always looking for parents to help with coaching and admin.. Don’t worry if you lack rugby or coaching experience, a helping hand is always welcome. We also need parents to take on various organisational tasks. It won’t be a big ask but every bit helps.

Mother’s Day, 26th March!

The minis enjoyed glorious spring sunshine on a trip to Bishopton for a three way tie including Cartha Queens Park and some very tasty burgers. We fielded teams from p1 right through to p7 with strong showings throughout the squads who were all very thankful to their Mums for letting them play on such an important day! The minis will break for the Easter holiday, returning to action at Hughenden (weather and groundskeeper allowing) on 23 April for training at 1130.
