3. RVBY-Rugby Turnier in Regensburg U12 und U14
26. Novemberber 2017

 

U12:
Bericht: Martin Kerschensteiner
The last Bavarian tournament of the year took place on (yet another) cold Sunday on the pitch of the RC Regensburg. Due to some injuries the MRFC this time only fielded one (but therefore rather large) team that brought together some more experienced players with some more recent additions. As the results show overall our team performed very well and while a solid defense has always been the calling card of the MRFC U12 teams our offense shows signs of improving and in particular slowly started to rely less on singular talents (and individual actions) and become more of a passing attack that uses the skills of the entire team. This was most obvious in the final against an improved RCU 1 team, in which our team showed the best rugby played by the 2017-2018 addition of the U12 to date. The result was a clear 45:05 victory and a first place finish in the tournament, which also means that the MRFC U12 teams finish the first part of the season undefeated. Finally a big thanks to our “coach de jour” Fernando, who prepared, motivated and focused the team so successfully throughout the tournament overcoming all of its smaller (the sort of muddy pitch) and  larger (semifinal opponents that needed to be dragged from the changing room) challenges.
So in summary, a cold but successful finish to the year - next up the Christmas party and Beach Rugby before the outside season continues in 2018.

U14:
Bericht: Marco Tarquini
The last  Bavarian tournament of the year took place on the grass pitch of the Rugby club Regensburg 2000, with cold winter weather and some snow.
The U14 category was strong of four teams: two from the MRFC (Lions and Tigers), the registered Spielgemeinschaft Regensburg-Nürnberg and StuSta. Additional players from Würzburg, Unterföhring, Anzing and Augsburg and Pilzen joined one team or the other. It was the first time for our Simon, well done! The MRFC Lions won, respecting the opponent, the two match without problem, also the MRFC Tigers won, but some missed tackle in the first half, have given the opportunity to make easy tries to our opponent.
At the end for the weather condition, We decided to not play Lions vs Tigers, unnecessary for the ranking, and to give the right time for shower, before the long bus trip. A big thank to all participating players, family members, and friends. See you next time and next Year!
As usually a big thank you to our trainers!

U10:
Bericht: Jean de Broissia
The kids have played 3 matches but unfortunately have lost all of them. The first match was against Unterföhring which won 7-3. Jan, Mario and Konstantin scored the tries.
The second match was the more balanced, as we lost 5-3 against Regensburg-Nüremberg. Xavier and Victor scored the tries. The last match was the more disapointing as we lost 10-3 against Augsburg- Gröbenzell-Ingoldstad-Anzing. Xavier and Mario scored the tries.
Despite the result, the players have shown a good team spirit and will to play. We had around the half of the team which is just starting to play rugby this year, it was for them only the second tournament of their life! Moreover, some of our experimented players were missing today. Our players have done nice actions during the first two matches, but they let go of the last match. We congratulate our two coaches Zoe and Carly who have motivated the players with real enthusiasm.

2. RVBY-Rugby Turnier in München U12 und U14
22. Oktober 2017

 

U12:
Bericht: Martin Kerschensteiner
The report from the 2nd Bavarian tournament of the year that took place at the MRFC this Sunday will be a particular short one as the manager (and chronicler) spend most of his day at the Turnierleitung and therefore did not really see many of the U12 matches of the day. Anyway there are at least 3 big positives to take from the tournament (1) it did not rain, which was contrary to the weather predictions and allowed us to use (and not destroy) both grass and artificial pitches, (2) we have our new Bavaria-themed MRFC jerseys, which feature an extra large V neck probably to facilitate high tackles, (3) the results were again positive as both teams won all of their extra-MRFC games and drew against each other. So well done everyone !!
Other than that there is still room for improvement as our play is rarely fluid and often dominated by individual runs. So there will be plenty of things to work on in the next training sessions before the 3rd Bavarian tournament awaits us at the end of November. Finally, again two big “thanks yous” – one to our “Erfolgstrainer” Antoine, who coached both teams and kept his remarkable win record with the U12 intact and the other to our excellent referee Fernando Zamola, who refereed all of the U12 games and well deserved his beer at the end. Merci Antoine and grazie mille Fernando !!!

U14:
Bericht: Gennaro De Lucia
This was the first tournament held by the MRFC on his home grounds, since the U12 German Championship, two years ago. In view of the fact that the writer of this report was also part of the organisation team, he could not follow all the matches of the U14 with the same attention. As a consequence, this time, the report will be a shorter one.
As at the 1st Bavarian Youth championship, in Unterföhring, two weeks earlier, the U14 category was strong of four teams: two from the MRFC (Lions and Tigers), the registered Spielgemeinschaft Regensburg-Nürnberg and StuSta. Additional players from Würzburg, Unterföhring, Anzing and Augsburg joined one team or the other.
The results reported below give an idea of how the day went for the MRFC teams. They easily won all the matches against their opponents and when it came to play against each other, the outcome was very close. The Lions won just by one try. The U14 group, is manned by well trained and experienced players. Of lately, some new ones joined the team and they are integrating in the group and learning the basic elements of the game very quickly.
Overall, it was another successful tournament for the U14. A big thank you to our trainers, Giacomo and Sergio, for taking good care of our U14 young men!

1. Rugby Festival in München U12 und U14
15. Oktober 2017

 

U12 und U14:
Bericht: Gennaro de Lucia
Last Sunday, 15.10.2017, the first U12-U14 Bavarian Rugby Festival took place in Munich. The host was the München Rugby Football Club (MRFC).
The invitation to the festival was sent to all Bavarian rugby clubs, to some in Baden-Württemberg and Saxony, including to neighbouring Austria and Northern Italy. This time, we did not manage to achieve an international participation, but clubs replied saying that they would still be interested in receiving the invitation to future events. Last Sunday, the MRFC was joined by representatives from the rugby clubs of Regensburg, Nürnberg, Augsburg, Würzburg, Fürstenfeldbruck, Unterföhring and StuSta.
Supported by a wonderful late summer weather, approx. 60 players accompanied by around 50 adults and siblings enjoyed the opportunity to play a different game of “Bavarian rugby”. Usually, in Bavaria the tournaments are played 7-a-side. In other Länder and Countries, at this age, they start already playing 10-a-side in the U12 category and 13-a-side in the U14. The same applies to the German championships in those categories.
After the usual presence count at the captains’ meeting, we could organise 3 matches in the U12 category and two in the U14. For many of the players, the first differences became immediately apparent. Some of them were playing for the first time with more than 6 team mates and were surprised to have a bigger field to take care of, as well as, “so many opponents” to defend from! Also the scrums seemed all of a sudden “real ones, like we see them on TV”. Once passed the first surprise, they all got head down into the “new game of rugby” and fully enjoyed the day. Another difference was the match time: the U12 had to get used to play 10 minutes per half time and the U14, 15 minutes.
With the exception of one match in each category, the other matches were played with mixed teams. That meant that the players (and jerseys) were exchanged, independently which club they belonged to. This added the extra taste of being part of a bigger Bavarian rugby community and nobody came afterwards complaining for a missing try. In fact, nobody was really interested in any result! Possibly, with a different participation and with more teams, the results may gain in weight, who knows. In any case, we hope that, by repeating this kind of festivals in Bavaria, we will be able to build up a stronger rugby tradition also south of Heidelberg!
A big thank to all participating players, clubs, trainers, managers and family members, who made this day possible. See you next time!

1. RVBY-Rugby Turnier in Unterföhring U12 und U14
8. Oktober 2017

 

U12:
Bericht: Martin Kerschensteiner
The first Bavarian tournament of the year traditionally took place on the pitch of the RC Unterföhring and as is a tradition as well the weather conditions were not exactly tropical. Anyway this was the first time that the newly formed Under 12 team played competitive games and some people (for example the manager) were a bit unsure whether we would be strong enough to field two competitive teams. But our trainers had faith in our kids and (as usual) turned out to be right as both teams won all of their matches decisively (see below) and finished first and second of the tournament after a friendly final (with some friendly fire as Louis, Leo and Alexis can probably attest to). More important than the pure results was that both teams showed clear progress throughout the tournament and ameliorated their performance from game to game. Nonetheless there is clearly still a lot of work left till we can approach the standard set by last years championship team and many aspects of our game need to be improved (like advancing as one line…..something Antoine must have mentioned a couple of times during the tournament). Anyway there will be plenty of chances to continue to improve – next up the rugby festival at the MRFC next Sunday.
Finally, two big “thanks yous” – one to our coach Antoine, who motivate, instructed, warmed up and coached both teams pretty much without a break and the other to our excellent referee Richard Hollow who stepped in on very short notice and was on the pitch (in shorts !!!) without a break for the entire tournament. Merci Antoine and thanks a lot Richard !!!

1. Platz und 2. Platz

U14:
Bericht: Gennaro De Lucia
This was the first tournament of the season 2017/18. The hosts of the RC Unterföhring have done everything to ensure a successful day, in spite of clearly autumnal weather conditions. The U14 age category included two teams from the MRFC, the Lions (I) and the Tigers (II), the Spielgemeinschaft RC-Regensburg/Nürnberg/Augsburg and the Spielgemeinschaft RC StuSta/Anzing/Unterföhring.
The first match saw the two MRFC teams playing against each other. After a balanced first half, which ended 2 tries each side, the second half saw a clear acceleration from the Lions. During the first half Quentin and Daniel scored for the Lions; Cilian and Jérémie for the Tigers. The rucks and the scrums were equally powered and one could see little difference in the attack and defence of each team. Then the second half came and with it some changes. Nobody imagined that in the second half Timo would boost the attacks of the Lions. He scored three tries, one after the other and Tane closed the count, bringing the final score to 6 tries to 2 in favour of the Lions.
The second match of the Lions was against the SG StuSta/Anzing/Unterföhring. The opponents of the Lions tried all in their power to stop the continuous attacks from the Lions’ wings Timo and Tane, but the two of them were simply unstoppable. As soon as they received the ball and had the opportunity to run, there were little chances to tackle them. In total they scored 9 tries and other two came from Anton and Quentin. The rest of the team, in particular the forwards, also deserve a special acknowledgment. Without their winning in the rucks and scrums, the wings would have not been able to receive the ball. The Lions conceded only one try to the opponents and the final score was: Lions beat SG StuSta /Anzig/Unterföhring 11 tries to 1.
At the same time as the Lions’ match, on the pitch beside them, the Tigers were taking on the SG Regensburg/Nürnberg/Augsburg. The Tigers started strongly with good rucks lead by the relentless Jérémie, supported by Fynn and Francesco, with Cilian and Adam ready to pick up the ball and pass it on to Connor, Orlando, Chris and Patraic. Orlando and Connor did not disdain to get involved in the rucks, as well as running as backs. In the 14 minutes of the match, the Tigers scored 13 tries and conceded only 1 to the opponents.
After about 1.5-hour rest, the third and final match started for both MRFC teams. The Tigers met the SG StuSta/Anzig/Unterföhring and the Lions the SG Regensburg/Nürnberg/Augsburg. Once again the Lions and Tigers repeated their performance of the previous matches and won respectively 8 tries to 1 and 9 to 1.
The final ranking of the day was: Lions first, Tigers second, SG StuSta/Anzing/Unterföhring third and SG Regensburg/Nürnberg/Augsburg fourth
