Haagse Rugby Dagen 2011

Haagse Rugby Dagen 2011


The 12th Haagsche Rugby Dagen (Hague Rugby Days) took place at the HRC over the weekend. This 3 day tournament has become the traditional kick-off to signal the start of new Rugby season in the Netherlands. This year the tournament was opened by Willem de Jong the new chairman of the NRB (Nederlandse Rugby Bond / Dutch Rugby Board).

On the team front Lille Metropole RC (France) returned to defend their win from last year, and given their strength and speed they had no major problem in retaining the trophy. The other teams in the men’s main event whom Lille were up against were Slavia Prague (Czech Republic), the Dukes and of course Haagsche RC. These games were played off on the Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.

The Saturday was a full day of rugby, starting with the Oude Dutch Masters who gave the crowd three hours of good rugby nearly all of which was played in driving rain, well it is August, what do you expect sunshine. The Dukes then took on the Dutch Rugby Academy, and the ladies performed well in a knockout competition between TU Delft, Utrechtse RC and Diok RC. The day was concluded with a full match between HRC 2/3 and the Rotterdamse Studenten RC.

The ARC Lowlanders hosted the Union Cup 2011, over a long weekend of 2-5 June 2011. Where 12 European teams from Belgium, England, France, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal and Scotland (that’s around 250 rugbyers) fought over two days of hard rugby to win the two trophy’s, one for the 15’s and one 10’s divisions.

The 15’s was won by the Kings Cross Steelers from London, and the 10’s by Montpellier from France.

The Union Cup is a European Gay male rugby tournament held every two years, previous years being, Copenhagen, London and Montpellier. This time round it was Amsterdam, and the Lowlanders did a fantastic professional job of organisation, including great weather with  sun and temperature in the high 20’s.
