Notes on the Swedish Men´s XV

16 Sep 2014
The Swedish team had no training together whatsoever when faced with the final match of the 2012 – 2014 double season against Germany in June at the European 1B level. This was primarily because the then Swedish trainer had made a stupid remark about the German team and been dismissed from his position. Perhaps a misguided attempt at a joke, but I think the Union made the correct decision to remove him. This led to a vacuum with no training camps and a makeshift management team. Sweden played not badly against the winners of the group and were even leading with 20” to play.

Roger Blomquist borta

15 Sep 2014
Tråkiga nyheter kommer slag i slag. Det meddelas i dag att Roger Blomquist gått bort i cancer, endast 57 år gammal. Roger var rugbyns man på SVT, alltid anlitad när vår sport fick chansen att visa upp sig. I over 30 år var han en utmärkt rugbykommentator, alltid påläst, kunnig och entusiastisk, med en fin formuleringskonst. En riktig ambassadör för rugby. Hans kunnande var också allsidigt och sträckte sig till flera andra idrottsdiscipliner. Det blir svårt att ersätta honom.
Exiles skickar kondoleanser till Rogers fru och barn.

Successful weekend in Enköping

15 Sep 2014
The girls´ U18 tournament seems to have gone well. England in a class of their own, but otherwise fairly tight matches. Sweden with one win, one draw and three defeats, a ninth place and nine tries scored have done more than could be expected of them. Well done!
The fact that the girls had training camps before the tournament, as opposed to the Mens´ XV who have had none gives an interesting perspective on the priorities of the Union at present.

Enköping vinner semi 35 - 10

13 Sep 2014
Trelleborgs Allehanda rapporterar att Enköping vann första semifinalen i Trelleborg 10 - 35 efter 7 - 14 i halvtid. Det bästa Pingvin spelat på länge enligt deras tränare. Ser dock ut att vara den sedvanliga seriefinalen mellan Enköping och Exiles.
