The Helevetes team from Switzerland arrived at the club rooms on Saturday night to meet the Bangers and to watch the Six Nations Rugby games. In a vibrant rugby club atmosphere, a large turnout of Bangers across the club age spectrum went out of their way to make the evening special for our guests. A great night of friendship and fraternity
The game on the Sunday was social rugby workout. The Ancients were not able to put out full side and were forced scavenge for a few players. The game as characterized by a complete disregard for the rules of the game. But who cared. Nobody – this was about having fun. At the end of the match the score was a draw, as it was intended. A big thanks to Helevetes for a spirited and well contested game. It was everything it should be.
The after match function at the Red & White turned into an exceptional evening with lashing of cold Heineken and plates of delicious Thai food. Their was some formality to the night. Early in the evening, both clubs exchanged tour mementos. Roberto Guolo, the club chairman, presented the club crest to Helevetes. The Bangers are now the proud owners of a cuckoo clock, a great gift and nice gesture from the touring side. Players from both teams will remember this weekend.
