Come along and join in the fun and mateship of Over 35’s Rugby
The Gordon Stags are looking for players to come and join us in the fun of playing Over 35’s Rugby. Who knows, you might even be tempted to come to the World Oldies Rugby Festival with us to be held this time in Fukuoka, Japan during the first week of November. Anyone who’s been will vouch for how great that experience is.
NO Prior experience required
NO Minimum fitness levels
NO Training required
NO Mandatory Attendance
It’s not every weekend
(Usually every 2nd or 3rd)
It’s all about running around the field and having a great time with a beer and a BBQ thrown in. Games are usually 20 minute thirds and played in the spirit of “Everyone goes home in one piece” with unlimited substitutions – you can play for 5 or 10 minutes and then substitute off for some rest and recovery if needed.
We play approximately every 2 weeks from the last weekend in March to mid October and, whilst we like to ensure we get a full team to as many games as possible, attendance is not mandatory. After all, we’ve all got lives, and wives, that need attending to.
No experience is necessary and for those who are new to the game of Rugby, or those that need to refresh their memories since they (like many of us) last played in high school, the IRB has produced a Beginner’s Guide to Rugby (2.8MB download). The Guide provides useful information about the laws of the game, referees signals, positions and how to play. So now you’ve got no excuses for not joining us in a game of Oldies Rugby.
