Irish win pre-season against Balmy Beach
Balmy Beach RFC went back to Ontario with a pre-season loss to the Montreal Irish last Saturday. The final tally was 39-12, with Coach Plimer remarking on the team making 25+ beautiful offload passes. The visiting team was treated to great Montreal hospitality, the Friday before was apparently, “Bien arrosé” followed by a Saturday night Crazy Hats pub crawl organized by our very own Tisha. I believe Balmy had a great time during their visit.
The first club wide social mixer was a great way to meet new, old and other members of the club outside of training setting.
