I söndags så startade Utvecklingsserien igång med 7’s spel på Välen i Göteborg. Göteborg RF, Borås RUFC, Uddevalla RK, Alingsås RK, Tranemo Razorbacks och Vänersborg RK hade lag och spelare som deltog. Det blev många bra och hårda 7’s matcher under dagen. Lagen bestod av en härlig mix av oldboys, helt nya spelare och de med några år på nacken. Sammanhållningen och glädjen på sidan av planen bådar gott för framtiden. Då WestGota Ladies spelade mot Vänersborg RK på lördagen så
GRF vill härmed gratulera Christopher Vannerberg för sin andra kallelse för svenska XV landslag! Vår ving spelade 80 minuter under borta matchen mot latvia och visade stor karaktär. Henning Ekstrand som också var med i helgen med landslaget är tvungen att hoppa av pga infektion i kroppen. Även Frölunda pojken startade för coach kanogo s trupp. Mvh Marco Cicola - GRF secretary #RugbyUnion #GRFMen #GRF #Rugby

An early 7am start saw 23 of Göteborgs strongest men load up in two minibuses and a car to begin the journey up to Oslo for the first match of the season. The team was excited to put into practice the systems that had been worked on in training in particular defence and set piece. Oslo Fusion are always tough opponents and we knew that we would need to be up to the task physically to get a result. The match started with GRF giving away a few stupid penalties which Oslo decide

Passion - Rugby people have a passionate enthusiasm for the game. Rugby generates excitement, emotional
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
Today we had Spartacus, Borås Rugby Football Club, Alingsås Rugby, Vänersborg RK och Karlstads rugbyklubb down at the Club for the first Rugbyfestival for the autumn season. Our Under8, Under10, Under12 and Boys14 all played Games and they played really well. A Big Thanks to visiting Clubs, our coaches, the kids and the parents for making this day great. #GRF #U10 #U8 #U12 #U14 #Rugby
Saturday midday would see the gathering of the west region clans turn up to Välen to take on the Welsh touring squad Nantgaredig RFC. Unfortunately a few players called off in the morning but considering the weather conditions it was a huge positive to see 23 players turn up to play the test. Clubs represented included players from Uddevala(1), Borås(1), Vänersborg (1), Spartacus (4) and GRF supplied the rest of the HR.
The lads ran a low impact session of 45 minutes before
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
On the 6th August and for the second time, Welsh side Nantgaredig RFC (currently playing in the Swalec national league Div 3 West) will be playing at Välen against a West Regional squad.
Players from around the region will rub shoulders and take on a side that won comfortably the last time they visited Gothenburg and GRF.
This will be a rugby day for all the family, youth players and fans of the 15s game where we will see , for the first time in a long time, how our west
GRF men's squad lifted their game from the qualifying rounds to finish a solid 6th position, losing out to Pingvin RC who lifted the plate final prize.
This was after seeing off other west coast teams Vänersborg RK and Spartacus RUFC who had been very strong in the qualification rounds leading up to the SMveckan finals.
This is a huge step up for the Gothenburg men who were missing some key players through injuries.
A great result for the squad and the club and with more
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
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
