The Richmond Rugby Football Club would like to invite all of our prospective players, coaches and staff to the first social (plus a special training session) at Second Beach in Stanley Park.
The fun begins Saturday, August 29th at 9:30 AM with some skills, fitness and games run by our new Head Coach Ben Hickey, followed by a BBQ at noon. Hope to see all of our members there for a good bit of fun!
The Richmond Rugby Football Club is pleased to announce the hiring of Ben Hickey as the club's head coach for the 2015 - 2016 season.
Ben trained as a rugby union assistant coach last year under outgoing coach Kevin Nielsen, and after several succesful interim coaching stints with Richmond's first and second teams last year the club feels he is able to take the next step in his rugby union coaching career.
The Lemons Sevens - featuring a number of players from the Richmond Rugby Football Club, won their second straight SFU Highland tournament on Saturday.
Beginning the day with a tight victory over SFU, the Lemons looked a bit shaky in their second game against The Untouchables (a team comprised of Velox and Vancouver Island based players). However, some late additions to the roster proved to be the key as the Lemon Lads rolled over Ridge Meadows and Brits B in their final pool games, putting them through to the semi finals.
The Richmond Invitational side fell 33 - 7 to Colfe's School of London in a well-played match in front of fans at South Arm Park in Richmond on Thursday night. The young Dragons side was captained by Mati Gordon for the final time as the young fly half heads to the University of Toronto in September to play for the Varsity Blues.
The Richmond Rugby Football Club will be putting together an invitational XV to play against Colfe's School of London on Thursday July 16th at South Arm Park. There will be a post-game all-ages social and any prospective spectators should be advised of the 6PM kick-off time! The U18s will be coached by Al Smith and local lad Graham Haigh will be refereeing. Hope to see our suppourters out to cheer on the young guns!
