Team Update | HoneyBadger
7th June 2017
Bournemouth 7s,This was their first time attending this festival and they were entered in the Open Cup (one down from the Elite which featured both international teams and the Army. This was a very well organised event and they did very well. The results will show they were knocked out in the Cup Semi-Final – by just 2 points i.e. a kick. The team that beat us -The Prawn Smugglers – then went on to the final against The Royal Navy. They had already faced the Royal Navy in their pool and had beaten them 21-7. Prawns then won the cup then went on to win the cup.
Summer Social, 3rd June they competed in The Summer Social at Richmond Club http://www.summersocial.co.uk/london where they were again in the Open cup. They are also providing a team into the Social cup so over 20 players were organised. This is again a huge event with 1000s expected in attendance with a huge after party. The boys had a tough outing during the competition but played some good rugby.
Next Saturday, 10th June, we will be at The Essex Charity 7s at Barking with two teams. This tournament is a much more low-key/club based event but if we win will qualify us for the RFU 24/7 competition.
Good luck to the boys over the rest of the season #akumafamily
