BOOBS v BALLS

Sunday 29th August was a very special day at Macclesfield Rugby Club, special because it celebrated the 10th BOOBS v BALLS charity rugby contest.

Organiser and player, Mandy Keogh, had brought together four mixed-gender teams to compete in an all-play-all, Touch Rugby tournament. U 16s, referee Tom Brierley officiated over the six pool games, and the Final to determine the eventual winners.

The Pool rounds saw the Ball Blacks and Help the Aged teams come out on top, to compete for glory.  A tense match resulted in a 5 – 5 tie; a drop goal contest then being selected as determining the ultimate mixed-team winner, which, after some decidedly dodgy kicks, the Ball Blacks managed to slot-one-over and come out on top!

The Finale was to be BOOBS v BALLS/PINK v BLUE in a glory-takes-all 15-a-side, full-pitch final-fling – and it was! The ball was flung about, not always in the right direction, but the BOOBS new where the try-line was. The fellas were rightly flustered as the Ladies showed-off their silky handling skills. It would be wrong to single-out any particular Ladies (BOOBS) as they all played their part in battering the Boys (BALLS) 14-10!

A fantastic day was had by all, with money raised for two fantastic causes, this year being:   Macmillan Cancer Support and East Cheshire Hospice, In memory of Nigel Rosser, Mandy’s Dad who had sadly passed away recently. A fantastic £1400 was raised with donations still coming in; anyone wishing to donate should contact Mandy at:  amanda2209@outlook.com.

You know you're in trouble when you see a wall of green shrits running towards you 😳 @connachtrugby work the ball across the line excellently once again, Conor Oliver and Jarrad Butler have a little one-two and make it look oh so easy 😌 #HeinekenChampionsCup

All the best to @ospreys' Sam Cross who's stretchered off after he seemed to twist his knee falling through a ruck. Hopefully a speedy recovery 🙏 #HeinekenChampionsCup

Hard fought, but it's defeat for England Men. They'll play Australia in the Bronze Final at 16:59. #Spain7s
