Matlock Rugby Club Tour Italy
Italy Tour 2012
Morclean are proud to sponsor the Matlock Rugby Club! We had a small catch up upon their return to the UK.
Forty members of Matlock Rugby Club went on a four day stay in Lido di Jesolo, just outside of Venice. They had a long and arduous coach ride to Gatwick Airport to fly to Venice for some Rugby action.
They actually played two matches against local opposition. The first they travelled to by boat, (see below!) to win Lido di Venexia RC 21-27. The second match was also triumphant, verus RC Silea, with a comfortable win of 7-62. Well done boys!
The reason for the tour was that it was actually a lengthy 6 years since the previous tour, when the team went to Majorca. It's a end-of-season tradition that the team want to bring back to full force! The tour really brought the team together, and as you can see from the pictures, there's more that a little camaraderie!
The Final night of the tour saw an end of season celebration, where the guys wore fancy dress! Shenanigans were had, and events on the night involved an 8 foot high balcony, a door and a Maraca! I asked no more questions on this slice of the tour.
We are pleased the guys had such a good time and did so well! We also think the Morclean shirts look pretty smart!
