GRR: Irish Rugby Tours
It's been active on the field and off for the Marin Highlanders as they tour England and Wales.
In Bath, the boys toured the Bath Rugby Stadium, followed by a really nicely-run training session with one of the Bath rugby coaches. Next, they were off on a tour of the historic city of Bath, highlighted by visits to the Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths.
It's been a busy time for both Marin and Mystic on tour with Irish Rugby Tours.
Marin has a tough game against Walcott RFC, especially when they were forced to move some players around.
Having toured both London and Bath, the Marin Highlanders are on to their second game of their tour of England and Wales.
With some of the played a little under the weather, this game might be a tough one, with some second-team guys being moved up. But that's the thing about a tour, too—you never know who will be asked to make an impact.
On tour in Italy, the Mystic River U19 team spent the first couple of days in training with two different clubs in Milan.
The players will be playing three games through their ten-day tour, but before they started playing, they needed some time to warm up after getting out of the Massachusetts winter. They went through training sessions with Cus Milano and then the Colorno club.
Mystic River’s U19s are back on tour this February, touring Italy with the help of Irish Rugby Tours.
(Despite the name, Irish Rugby Tours takes teams to destinations all over the world, helping them combine a cultural itinerary with tickets to professional and international gams, and matching the teams with competitive opponents.)
