What originally got you into rugby and what has kept you playing over the years?     I started playing at eleven as the school I was at frowned (quite correctly) on the round ball game, so there was no alternative for Wednesday afternoons except Poetry Reading and Divinity Classes. Not having a literary...

Royal Rugby

http://www.universalsports.com/news-blogs/blogs/blog=thescrum/postid=531357.html Rugby on hand for royal wedding Gareth Thomas, Sir Clive Woodward, Mike Tindall to sit on groom's side of the aisle By Buzz McClain, Universal Sports Kate Middleton is a rugger hugger. It's a compliment, trust me. If you were wondering which side of this big-deal wedding in England you were on, as a rugby fan, you'd be on Prince William's side of the aisle. And you'd be sitting with: • Gareth Thomas, the former Wales captain, first Welshman to reach 100 caps and the first professional athlete...

Grey VS Springfield Math Report

 The Rifles or Rusty Muskets showed with very little artillery and ammo.  About 5 or 6 rifles and a couple hand guns.  Thanks to all the Grey who filled out the Rifles squad to provide 60 minutes of Rugby.  Recommendation to Burt is we Play Springfield away all the time.  If we schedule a home match we need to invite Worcestor and Danbury to assure we have an opponent.  We may have to play three away for one home match but we need a full team to play.  Bill Bishop had his usual great day with four tries.  Charlie Mattison, Beaver, and Bill Hoadley had some long runs.  Tom Kubic was all over...

Touch Rugby

Thank you everyone who came down last night and lined the field.  The lining was finished in about 20 minutes with everyone chipping in (Barry, Ronco, Mac, Bud, Mike Besso).  It was a great workout and a lot of fun playing touch rugby for about an hour or so.  Bud scored the winning try, Barry experimented with new passes (behind the back), and Ronco scared the living hell out of all of us with his Bow and Arrow (you had to be there to witness it).   Great time all around.  We will be playing on Wednesday of next week  at 5:30 pm.  Come on down and help us line the field and throw...

CT Grey Schedule Change for This Weekend.

Hello everyone, our game tomorrow against Springfield has been changed and will start at 2:30pm rather than 1pm.  At 1pm Amity High School will be playing Fino's team at our pitch so come on down and support U19 Rugby.    -Meyer    PS. Our schedule change is not because of U19 rugby (they were originally going to play at 11am or so). Our schedule change is because Springfield let us just know that they can not make it until then.
