After the Dragons

June 15, 2015


Good morning guys!  …and Sunday is a washing day, and where did that bruise come from day!

Wow what a day we had yesterday. An incredible match against the Dragons. We played very well, and made a lot of great plays. The drills that Eric put the team through this week paid off – it was a much improved MY side that took to the pitch.

Phil scored a try! Congratulations Phil.

George was Man of the Match, congratulations and well played George. George was unexpectedly thrown in as scrummy and did very well.

Playing their first game in a Muddy jersey were:
David Scrivener.
George Giancoulas.
John Thai.
Justin Thorsell.
Well done to all of you and welcome to MY!

We don’t have a game next week, our next one is in Oakville the Saturday following.

Toronto Muddy York is a progressive, ALL-INCLUSIVE rugby club in the Greater Toronto Area providing the sport of rugby to the gay community and their friends. Established in 2003, we primarily compete against teams in the Toronto Rugby Union. We also travel for exhibition matches against other teams, and host our annual Beaver Bowl Tournament, when we invite other IGRAB (International Gay Rugby Association and Board) and regional clubs to join us in Toronto over the abour Day weekend.

Our name – Toronto Muddy York – is a tribute to the original name of our hometown. Our team colours – blue and yellow – come from both the City of Toronto’s coat of arms, and the Rugby School in Warwickshire, where the game was created in 1823. Blue symbolizes tradition, loyalty, unity and strength; while yellow symbolizes success, athletic achievements and joy.

We welcome members of all skill levels, from absolute novice to seasoned player. Participants benefit from a rewarding game that is not only physically challenging, but also fosters a profound sense of camaraderie both on and off the pitch. Why not join us at our next practice to see for yourself? Check our Calendar of Events or email vicepresident@muddyyork.ca to learn more.

Rugby is an international sport that is quickly enjoying an upsurge in interest from our community. The game is, after all, about diversity and collaboration. To succeed, teams need a variety of different physical skills, builds and abilities…so why not find yourself on Toronto’s rugby team that is meant for everyone?
