Easts Rugby Union Football Club
31 Halifax St, Norman Park QLD 4170
Kicking off at 3:00pm, there will be some new-to-rugby drills, BBQ & beers.
This year the Hustlers will venture to Brisbane’s spiritual home of Rugby for their 2017 boot camp. Being held on Saturday the 25th of February, the grounds where the team made their 2016 Pegg Cup finals debut.
Across the afternoon the team will participate in a series of sessions covering all facets of the game; giving returning players an opportunity to hone their skills, and new players a chance to learn the fundamentals.
Given how rare such an opportunity to train and play at Ballymore is, the boot camp is also open to all new players interested in participating this season. Just reach out to the club via Facebook for more details.
To top the day off, the team will retire to a local watering hole to watch the professionals go at it in the Waratahs V Force game from 6:45pm.
Get a feel for the action by checking out some of the photos from last year’s boot camp here.
The Brisbane Hustlers are commencing their preseason training on Monday, January 30 from 6:30 pm at CP Bottomley Park, Coorparoo (aka Easts Rugby Union Club).
The team will be wasting no time in 2017 and will be holding two training sessions per week, Monday and Wednesday evenings both from 6:30 pm at Bottomley Park. The club encourages new and returning players to bring a water bottle and boots if available (although not a requirement yet). Whilst mouth-guards will not be a necessity for these early sessions, we encourage everyone to start thinking about buying one.
New players will get an introduction to the basic game mechanics and skills before being introduced to the contact elements of the sport in later sessions this year. Player safety is paramount in all training sessions and our coaching staff will ensure players have the requisite skill set before progressing into the more technical elements of the sport.
Returning players will be welcomed back with some fitness and skills work to help get rid off the off-season cob webs.
When arriving at Bottomley Park, try parking in one of the two car parks on Halifax St. The team will be meeting at end of the main car park that attaches to the Easts Club House. If you get lost, feel free to reach out via Facebook.
Easts Rugby Union Location:
Last Saturday the Brisbane Hustlers had their first trial match against the Wynnum Bugs. Taking to the field under the leadership of first time captain, Marty, the team were eager to put their month and a half of intense training to the test.
In the first quarter the team were still finding their feet, which allowed the more experienced Bugs to gain an early lead. However, in the second quarter the Brisbane Hustlers started to come together as team and make huge improvements – especially around the breakdown and scrums.
At half time the team got some clear messages around areas for improvements from the coaches, and kicked off the second half with a clear directive on how to get some more offensive possession. In the third quarter the Hustlers kept the Bugs in their own half through some relentless work from the forward pack; whilst creating some opportune runs for the backline. Unfortunately, the Hustlers were kept scoreless in the third quarter.
However, it was not long into the 4th quarter that the team were able to create and opportunity for points. After some tight phase play, Isaac our new star second rower was able to catch the opposition off guard and snatch a four pointer.
In the end, the Hustlers could not close the gap and the Bugs walked away victorious – but the Hustlers achieved redemption, easily winning the post-game Boat Race.
Overall, the team and coaches were happy with the progress the team has made in the last 6 weeks; and while the cardio can always be better, there was no shortage of determination and pride in the Hustlers’ performance.
