What a busy weekend this was for the Bruisers!! While half our guys were up at RK03 battling away in the Berlin Sevens tournament, the rest of us were busy working the crowds at Motzstraßenfest – Europe’s largest gay and lesbian street festival.

Up at the Station Buschalle, our boys did us proud, scoring the first try of the tournament and putting in some sterling work against some very stiff opposition. Final placing 14th overall 🙂

Many thanks to Berlin Grizzlies Rugby Club, Berlin Irish RFC e.V., Berliner SV 1892 Rugby, Rugby-Potsdam and Sport Club Siemensstadt Rugby for lending us players when needed!

Meanwhile down at the street fair we we were wooing the crowds – young and old, with our impromptu street rugby, pom-pom juggling and winning smiles.

We had a fantastic response and signed up over 90 people for our upcoming ‘Intro to Rugby’ day on Aug 12th – including 25+ women for a potential Bruisers Women team! Looks like next season will be our best yet
