Hope you all had an enjoyable 7s and fully recovered after the weekend!
I’ve got five quick things to cover before the Easter break:
TV5 Monde rugby for the Valley/Valley community
This is what’s coming (Rugby wise) on TV5MONDE Asie that might be of interest to the “Valley” community:
This Saturday, April 13 at 8:45 PM (HK time) and until the end of the regular season on May 25 TV5 Monde will start broadcasting live one match of the TOP 14 French Rugby Championship. This weekend should be Bordeaux Bègles (former VRFC sponsor and partner) vs. Castres Olympique. TV5 will also be broadcasting the final phases of the championship; the 2 play-offs (date tbc), the 2 semi-finals (June 8 & 9) and the Final (June 15)
Next week, on Sunday 21st April at 10:15 PM (HK) TV5 Monde will be broadcasting live the Semi-Final of the European Rugby Champions Cup between Stade Toulousain and Leinster. Should Stade Toulousain beat the mighty Irish and make it to be the final (on May 11) TV5 Monde will also broadcast that final too.
Valley Pros Rugby camp at Happy Valley, Sat 20th, Sun 21st and Mon 22nd April
Deano and six of the Valley Premiership players are running an Easter Rugby camp at HV6. Please see the attached flyer and register your children. It was an excellent camp and the kids learned a lot the last time around. The have changed the skills and drills for this camp so if your child attended the last camp they will continue to develop by attending this camp too. Take a look at the attached flyer
South China Tigers vs. Asia Pacific Dragons, Global Rapid Rugby at Aberdeen Stadium, Sun 21st April **Kids go free**
South China Tigers (SCT) will be hosting their first home game of Global Rapid Rugby next Sunday at Aberdeen Stadium/Sports Ground. Given it’s Easter Sunday there will be Easter themed activities for the kids, as well as a rugby clinic, PLUS a chance to be one of the SCT flag bearers. Take a look at the attached flyer for a discount code of 20% normal entery – and for every paying adult up to two Under 12 kids go free.
Also – there is a hospitality package of $1288pp including free flow beer, wine and soft drinks with food by the Kerry Hotel.
Valley Fort End of Season Party at Mr Wolf, May the 4th….
Come to the VF End of Season party at Mr Wolf. There is a great band, excellent food, good laughs and average company! There are also prizes for the best fancy dress. See the attachment for details and sigh up by replying to Jessie (firstname.lastname@example.org) now.
Valley Fort Singapore Tour, 11 & 12th May
I’m sure that you are all well aware of this now but please ensure that your head coach has all of the details of your flights, hotel, etc. For those arriving on Friday it’s usual for each age group to go to dinner together (not mandatory of course) BUT on the Saturday evening there will be a Club dinner at the Hard Rock Hotel. Details to follow but it will be early enough for the younger children to be fed without it being too late for them.
Have a great Easter and see you all soon.
