- Saturday 23th May, Veterans at the Amsterdam Vets Tournament.
Friday 22th of May Youthtraining is on the Beach! Training starts 18:30 till 19:30 at Huisduinen beach.
Trainer U10’s injured during work.
The Rugbyclub and his members are shocked to hear that trainer and longtime member Rolf Regtop got injured during his work as a policeofficer. Currently he’s in the Hospital in Alkmaar where they will keep him observed. Hopefully he will return to the Den Helder Hospital some time today.
When his situation will change we will keep you informed.
The Rugbyclub Den Helder would like to wish the best of luck to Rolf and his Family in these hard Times. Our thoughts are with them.
Rolf is back home. After one day under observation the Hospital couldn’t keep him in anymore. He’s well able to speak, but needs to keep calm for 6 weeks. From all over the country he receives postcards and Flowers, it’s a colourfull site in their Livingroom. We’re all happy that this ended so well and wish him a speedyfull recovery.

U17’s on Tour to Belgium
On Friday the 15th of May our Juniors left for Gent and Leuven. They played to strong Games against very strong opponents. Unfortunatly no winns, but the way our Boys and Girl played was amazing. Even against a much stronger side like Gent they would not give up and gave everything till the last minute. In a physical game they managed to keep their Heads in the attacking mode and give the Gent defensive line a constant battering.
That they played a physical game the evening before showed on the Saturday. Against RC Leuven it was vissible that the players at some times couldn’t give as much speed as they did the evening before. Therefore they mist crucial tackles and Leuven was quick to sent there centres through these gaps. Never the less the game wasn’t a walkover. It was actually our team that did most of the attacking.
All together, the Trainers, Coaches and Teammanagers enjoyed watching our young Sportsmen and women doing what they like so much, playing Rugby against a strong side. And in the free moments the Team showed an Adult behaviour, so there were no Policemen needed and really everyone had a great Tour. It will be hard to top this one next Year….
Seniors attent Beachtournament Oranje Buiten.
Alltough the weather wasn’t tropical, our Seniors still took part with the first edition of aBeachrugby tournament in 2015. The Tournament was kept in Hoorn at the Pavilion Oranje Buiten. The tournament was for the first time organized bij RC WestFriesland, and they already have big plans for the future. For our Men it was a great way to spend the Sunday and to get together to play a sportive game. The best News was that the age of the players was, with one exeption, below thirty! A great achievement that fits right in our planning for the future.
Eventhough there was no winning game, the accomplishment was certanly not undersized. In the first Game our guys took on a team from Friesland that only plays Beach. Further more, the average height of the players in that team was 6ft8. In our Team the biggest player was just about 6 ft. Our biggest mistake in the game was not switching from 15’s to noncontact. But after a good evaluation our Boys played two nice Games against the teams of RC WestFriesland.
Hopefully we’ll play the Tournament again next Year, and we’ll bring some more rugby experience obtained in the upcoming Season.
