Ruck that dress Rugby match: Rotterdam RC


To celebrate the kick off of the Rotterdam LADIES team, these girls decided to play a match in full wedding gear. The guys they were playing also turned out to also be very dapper, well rugby is a game played by gentlemen, so were told.

Conclusion: Wedding dresses should not be used for general rugby games.

1. The ball is difficult to find amongst all that material

2. The opposing team can easily hide the ball between their legs

3. A scrum can take forever while you try to find the correct position for your arms and head.

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.

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.
