SWEDISH APPROACH TO VETERAN RUGBY

Rugby World Cup England 2015 started with sunny EVRA Festival

 

Skäne Old Boys, the selection of veteran players from south of Sweden are the new holders of EVRA European Festival most precious award - Jeff Butterfield Trophy.

From the very start of the Festival games with their approach to veteran rugby - having fun playing the Game, respecting the opponents, with "high social performance" - it was clear who will "winn" the Trophy - to keep it for the next two years in their clubhouse.

When Farnham RUFC was bidding to organize European Festival by the end of 2013, Paul Brooker, the Festival Director "promised" perfect weather and playing conditions and a lot of Fun for European veterans.
And, he had right - all three "conditions" had been fulfilled, together with the fourth one - adequate and perfect refereeing by the Surrey RFU referees led by veteran John Robertson, better known as J.R.

On Thursday evening at the Welcome Drink the Festival was officially opened by the Mayor of Town Farnham, Lady Pat Frost  and Geoff Robins, Farnham RUFC Chairman.
