We’ve talked about it earlier, but the early spring rugby tournament season is in full swing this weekend. I’ll be playing with my team down at the hopefully-not-too-cold Whiskey 10s in Chicago, while the Champagne Classic is in San Diego this weekend as well. By the way, that’s a grainy pic of my team after winning last year’s St. Pat’s Tourney down in Savannah, GA.
Word on the rugby street is that the Chicago Women are traveling to the Classic from here in the Midwest (because they won’t be representing at the Whiskey 10s). Any other teams making the long haul? Or will it be mainly California teams? I’ll look for results after the weekend. Send ’em if you got ’em (or pics).
I received my team’s brackets yesterday from the Southside Irish Rugby Team, who’s organizing the 10s tournament. Looks like my team – Wisconsin Women – and Northshore might be the only senior women’s teams, but loads of Illinois’ college teams. Should be good for our newer players to dip their toes in to the rugby experience. Also, big thanks to the University of Wisconsin player, Anne, who’s joining us for the weekend.
I’ll post recaps and maybe some photos after the weekend.
