Touring Team (19.06.2012)
Last friday a touring side from England blessed us with their presence and started off their tour in our favourite Irish pub, flanagans. Here they invited our boys to the pre-match warmup where their social and singing skills were put to the ultimate test, still prevailing to make the game on Saturday morning at Dirnelwiese. Their 22 strong team faced our Barbarian team a mixture of 1st XV, Wanderers and C team boys and one girl (thanks Anna). The temperature rose to a high 32 degrees by kick off which made it very difficult to cope however two 25 minute halves where agreed on and the game took place, offering many a try from both teams. the actual score was never noted but word has it that the Englanders won it in the last minute by a conversion.
After match celebrations started straight away, where many favored water over beer because of the harsh conditions. Eventually the party moved on taking a few Celts with them to Bratislava where their tour continued. Word has not come back yet if they survived Bratislava, and neither have we had word from the few Celts who joined but we hope that they had a great time and enjoyed our company as we did theirs.
All in all Celtic enjoyed their presence, hospitality and especially the rugby with them.
