Mid-week match against Vänersborg RK ladies was the usual tough affair that we always come to expect.
Unfortunately the squad would be down a few players which would have a few musical chairs during the 80 minutes which , due to strong first up tackles, provided yet another 80 minutes of working inches as opposed to meters. Both squads were guilty of giving away high penalty counts but despite this neither squad really took the advantage. The ladies will be happy to have a f
Saturday and the GRF ladies, or 14 players and a baby sitter to be exact, headed south to take on the Skåne regional team.
Unfortunately due to injuries and explanations, the squad could just about muster up a complete team but would have no bench in a development comp.which allows rolling subs. weather conditions were extremely hot and sunny which was a huge positive considering the weather that struck Skåne on the sunday. The ladies would basically have to a new match plan
The summer break is over and the autumn season starts this week. The summer has seen our Ladies win the Swedish Championship and our Men take on a Touring Welsh team. The club would like to thank Neil Johnson for his work around the Welsh game and putting up a strong Regional team. The youth section starts their trainings this week. Tuesdays and Thursdays 17:30-18:45. This weekend we are going to Trelleborg for a youth tournament (12:th-14:th of August). We still have some sp
GRF ladies Sara Sundström has won three SM golds already in 2016 and for that, GP gave her a balloon! "Hon inledde sin idrottskarriär i tonåren. I år har landslagsspelaren Sara Sundström, 29, vunnit SM-guld – i rugby, lacrosse och landhockey. – Jag brukar tacka ja till nya saker, säger hon." http://www.gp.se/sport/hon-har-vunnit-sm-guld-i-tre-olika-sporter-1.3475693 #GRFLadies #GRF

Efter två år med Malmö som segrare var 50-mannajuryn mycket tydlig, Göteborg är tillbaka på tronen. ”Kombinationen av bredd och topp gör att mitt val av årets idrottsstad var enklare än på länge. Grattis Göteborg. Ni är bäst i Sverige”, så säger Chris Härenstam, en av 14 jurymedlemmar som hade Göteborg i topp......" #GRF #GRFLadies
The club is very proud of our Ladies team. They went up to Norrköping and defended their gold medal from last year. The Ladies are a hard working team with a mix of new and experienced players. Behind the ladies success the last 5-6 years (winning both the 15's and the 7's) is Neil Johnson, one of the best coaches in Sweden. Even though he will never admit the Impact he has and telling you that it is the players that do the work Neils passion and knowledge of the game is the
SMVeckan is on the horizon and through some tough qualifying both mens and ladies teams will be heading north to compete for the SM 7's championship.
The men's comp will include the favorites, Stockholm Exiles, who haven't competed in the 7's for a few years.With 7 players currently playing the national side it is no surprise they are heading to Norrköping as favorites and the Gothenburg mens team will play them in the Group stages.
The ladies head north as current Sweden
The West Coast Vikings once again managed to reach the top end of the group stages by beating the Finnish national side in their first game on the saturday. Quite a resounding performance that finished 24-7. This was quite an achievement considering Finland are now playing at Grand prix level.
the next game would be a bridge too far, taking on the Dutch national side. A top quality side that would eventually go on to beat China to make the finals of the Amsterdam 7s, the We
For the third year in a row, the Gothenburg ladies International touring squad will be heading over to the Amsterdam 7's to pitch up against some top sides in Europe. To kick off saturdays matches the squad will play newcomers to Grand prix Sevens, Finland, who managed to beat the Sweden National ladies in sudden death to get their Grand Prix status. Second on the bill are the Windmills who are apparently the Dutch National squad under a different name. The Dutch have been co
After a long day of sevens at Lexby IP the GRF mens squad secured a top four placing to ensure a place at the SMVeckan in Norrköping in July.
The first game against Pingvin RC would be fought in damp conditions and despite doing every right and having a very good performance, unforced errors gave the victory to PRC, late in the second half. Pingvin RC would build on this victory and go on to win the final against Vänersborg RK after pulling back a 3 try deficit to win the f
This weekend the club will be heading over to the other side of town and to Partille where Spartacus RUFC will host round two of the ladies sevens qualifier and the semi-finals for the Mens qualification towards the Swedish SM finals that will be held in Norrköping during the SMVeckan in july.
For the men (silver medalists last year),after two rounds the top three teams, Vänersborg, Spartacus and Gothenburg ended up on exactly the same points.
This sunday and those very te
Unfortunately due the dates clashing, the swedish National side ladies will be playing in a Series A clash whilst the rest of the clubs will be playing the SM Vecka. As this is televised it has proven to be a huge boost for Swedish rugby.
With the latest results reported around the country and considering those players who wont make the SMVecka, it will be exciting to see who eventually makes the finals. With GRF ladies only losing a couple of players and with last years fin
