RCL DJs had a successful and encouraging day at Schaffhausen’s 13s tournament, March 16, playing the first teams from RC Zurich, Schaffhausen and Winterthur. We won 1 out of 3 games, beating Schaffhausen.
However, with the rate of learning on the day, we could have been placed 2nd overall, behind Ligue C’s 2nd-placed team, Winterthur. The team that took on Schaffhausen and Winterthur, compared to the one that started the day against RC Zurich, showed great development.
With so many beginners – some as recent as just a few trainings – and several players out of position, RCL DJs did very well. There was some great tackling, and plenty of Fat Boys and Shamrocks from the forwards.
A special note goes to Francesco, who tackled a Winterthur boot with his face, resulting in a 10-stitch cut on his cheek. Well done! And to Zbärgi who just reported a broken finger. A quick recovery to both.
Man of the tournament: Francesco
Twat of the tournament: Simon “Kollege” Zenhäuser (chosen because he always wins down-the-pint competitions)
Spitznamen: Simon Zenhäuser is now called “Kollege“; Simon Blättler is now called “Simi“…
