THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT

LANNA RUGBY CLUB

Last Saturday saw the Lanna Juniors come out in force once again.
Lanna Rugby Club is slowly developing a fantastic set of U13’s and U16’s players. Since the beginning of the season the Juniors have developed week upon week.  Lately the young recruits have learnt the basis of a good ruck and why it is important.

Over the coming week the coaches hope to get the Juniors to know how to perform all the basics to prepare them for combat in their first match. Due to COVID, this may not happen for sometime, however this could work out as an advantage. It gives the coaches more time to work in some much needed skills and drills work to ensure the Juniors come out fighting!

Excellent work so far Juniors, Keep up the hard work. The future looks bright here at LRC!

CUBS ARE ON THE MOVE

LANNA RUGBY CLUB

Last season Lanna Rugby Club began to introduce a youth development program to the club. This year LRC have concreted Cubs and Juniors rugby that will practice from 13:00-14:00 every Saturday.LANNA RUGBY CLUB

On the 26th June, Coach Erin and Coach Stubs put on the first session on the year for Cubs rugby. Coach Erin took the lead, putting the young debutants through their paces.

At the beginning on the session the Cubs were shy and weary about what to do. Alas, by the end, they understood how to pass and run lines., as well as being very vocal. Exceptional work Cubs!

Before preseason there were changes made to management and additional roles were created. One being the Head Coach for the Women’s Team. Erin Kieley, a woman that lives and breathes rugby, was welcomed on board to take the reins of the women’s team.

Even with the country still being in lockdown for international travel, Erin has made a valiant effort in forming a solid 10s team, recruiting every woman keen to have a go.

Since the 19th June LRC has had two practice sessions, each with around 10 women down each time.  We can’t wait to see how the team will evolve!

LANNA LIONESSES FOREVER!

NTR10s 2021/22……WE’RE IN!

Lanna Rugby Club NTR10s

COVID -19 has ravaged the world, however, now we find ourselves at the other end,  breaking free of the chrysalis into a brand new chapter in the Chiang Mai rugby calendar.

LRC Chairman, Tom Stubley, alongside Pat Cotter, LRC Secretary, over the last few months, have been quietly working away with their Northern Thailand Rugby commitments, developing the new NTR10s league. Finally the weekend came to hold a meeting between all the rugby team coaches/representatives who will be joining the third installment of the league. Stephen Zevon, the newly appointed Men’s 1st team Backs Coach was present for the meeting as well.

Thankfully every team present agreed with the proposed format. NTR also appointed Khun Rush as the Head Official to organise the referees and touch judges on the day.

Each team has been given a week grace period to officially contact NTR via email to confirm their ambition to play in this upcoming season of tens rugby.

Lanna Rugby Club will do one better.  We’ll confirm on our website too!

WE’RE IN!!

There is a BIG change to how this year will play out though. In the past the top two teams have competed for the sought after NTR10s trophy. However, this season the team at the top of the league will be crowned the victors.

Let’s have it Lions!

 

The teams who have a week to confirm are:
Lanna Rugby Club, CMU Rugby Club, MaeJo Rugby Club,
Cobras Rugby Club, CMU Aggie Rugby Club, Payap Rugby Club
