Berlin Beach Rugby 2019
The dust (sand) has settled on an absolutely incredible day of Beach Rugby in the capital with 12 teams giving their all to be crowned 2019 champions.
For us Bruisers a great opportunity to play with other amazing teams
A very tight group phase saw 4 local teams progressing to the semi-finals with almost identical records and the clashes between BSC and Irish followed by BSV92 against last years champions Siemensstadt were epic, with high-quality rugby in a party atmosphere. With the Grünewälder and Spandauer making the final. Irish would make do with bronze by sneaking a win against their friends and training partners at BSV92.
Thanks to the Berlin Irish RFC e.V.
Tough match in Halle (the opponents obviously knew how to position 2, 3, 4 players on the flanks and score tries along the sidelines). However, although it was a high loss for the Berlin Bruisers, the team didn’t look bad at all. A team with new, motivated players and new positions, developing its interaction.
Captain Alex: “happy to see some skills and good moves”. Coach Rodolfo: “despite the Halle dominance, good Bruisers defence, scrums and lineouts, tasks fulfilled. Besides regular training, some additional fitness is needed next!”.

As it is now a tradition, the sexy Berlin Bruisers are putting together a new edition of their beloved, wild and crazy Violet Varieté, happening on March 30th in SchwuZ. It will be an evening of spectacular performance, ranging from comedy to live music, draglesque, acrobatics, and some sexy surprises. An evening filled with glamorous artists and also with the sexy Berlin Bruisers – the most colorful german rugby team.
The night will be hosted by Gieza Poke, “Berlin’s only power-top pan-sexual former-Scottish-daytime-TV-fitness-sensation”. At her side: none other than Liliana Velasquez, the fabulous Berlin comedian. The line up is nothing short of spectacular and includes: The Darwish will seduce you with his belly dance, Ben MacLean will make you laugh out loud with his insights into Berlin’s gay life, Dunja von K will hypnotize you with her hula hoops, Fannie Haedäk will show what a queen and a chair together can do, Nana Schewitz will push the boundaries of drag, Feline & Strange will delight your ears with local Berlin-made tunes, and Lola Rose will surprise you with some lovely tunes.

Our timeless tradition – the Bruisers Striptease – will leave you begging for more!
Eighth game, second half of Season 18/19 – March 2, 2019.
Even though spring is approaching, in Germany is still full winter and the second half of the season must start. Frozen fingers and freezing ground, some supporters from a fellow team and here we are: a well fought match against a very skilled team.
BSC Bruisers 3 : 62 SC Siemensstadt
The last home match of 2018 did not quite yield the desired result for us.
Tries against us started early in the match and didn’t stop coming until we were down 0:29 at half time. At the beginning of the second half was one of the few times we were able to come near the Irish/Trebbin try line for a longer phase in the match. The SG tries kept coming and didn’t manage to put any points on the board. Final result 0:67.
The good thing to take away from the match is our record numbers for this season. Recruitment and bringing players up to match readiness are well on track.
A big thank you to SG Stahl Brandenburg e.V. who will support us with players for the remainder of the 2018/19 season before they rejoin the regional league Nordost as their own team again the season after.
BSC Bruisers 0 : 67 Berlin Irish Trebbin
