Hunters @ Bingham Cup

The Hunters are absolutely delighted with their performance at the recent Bingham Cup in Amsterdam. The team sent 25 players and supporters to Amsterdam to compete in the International Gay Rugby world cup held biennially. The team made it through the first round and then to the final of the Challenger category where they played a hard fought game against the Portland Lumberjacks who won. This was the clubs first international tour and we are proud of the enormous effort put in by each and every person that attended. 

We forged close friendships with other IGR teams in particular the Liverpool Tritons who deserve a mention for their determination and their support, it was fantastic to hear their chants from the sidelines at most of our games. Thank you Liverpool.

The Hunters were pleased to play against the Munich Monks RFC, Toronto Muddy York RFC, Armada Montreal RFC, Libera RFC, Emerald Warriors RFC and the Portland Lumberjacks.

As we move on from the Bingham Cup stronger, prouder and more determined we look forward to competing in the Union Cup in Dublin in 2019 and the next Bingham Cup in 2020 (location TBC).

All of this wouldn't have been possible without the support of our tours sponsors Blacks Solicitors LLP and our kit sponsors Viaduct Showbar and Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support.

With love - the Hunters
