Australia Day 2016 (January 26th) is nearly upon us. Which means two things for the Mozzies! Drinks and pre-season.

We will be in the Walkabout in the Printworks Manchester at 19:30 to celebrate Australia Day in true Aussie fashion! So why don’t you come and join the lads and lasses of the Mozzies for a drink (or several) and some food “the Aussie way.” We can’t wait to see you for the Aussiest of celebrations!

Pre-season is upon us ladies and gents! We are looking to build the squad beyond what it was last year. On and off the field. On the field the Mozzies are looking to improve on their runners-up finish at last year’s Champions League tournament, again in Amsterdam (April 1st 2017), so are looking to hit the ground running at training. All the players have been putting in the hours over the off-season and are looking forward to the upcoming pre-season and the tournament. Seasoned defender Budd Norris said, “We’ve missed each other as a group, can’t wait to get back together as group and hit the track, those first kicks are going to be interesting.” It is an opinion shared through the team; “I’m looking forward to my first season with the Mozzies, the Mo Cup was fun, but I’m looking forward to silverware, it is a group who could definitely win some.” Benson added to his comments saying, “the lads are great, really welcoming to newbies, feels a lot like home. With a lot more rain!”

So, if you live in and around Manchester and have been putting off your new year’s resolutions, want to try a new sport or just want a new group of mates, we invite everyone to our first pre-season session on Sunday 29th January, 11:00 at Burnage Rugby Club (Varley Park, Battersea Rd, Stockport SK4 3EA). So whoever you are, wherever you are from or however experienced you are; we would love to see you down at the club!
