Shilelagh Law Featured At Fisheads Club

Rockaway Rugby is returning to the Playoffs this spring with a first round match on April 9th. The road to the D2 National title begins in Hartford Connecticut for the Fisheads this year as their 3rd place finish in the Met Union (MNYRFU) seeds them against the top seed from the New England Rugby Union (NRU).

To start the rugby season with a bang, the annual Police vs. Fire Department match will be played on March 5th at Fort Tilden (11 a.m.). This year, the match promises to be as competitive as ever with both sides’ already boasting expectations and predictions.

NYPD rugger Brian McGyver is said to be in serious training and has been spotted sprinting on the boardwalk in full spandex and wearing a head band. Prominent FDNY Lieutenant George Johnson is said to be vigorously following the Zone Perfect diet plan in an attempt to reach an ultimate level of fitness for the upcoming match. Arthur Fitzpatrick has recently returned from a hiking excursion in the Himalayas where he followed the work out philosophies of Zen Master Seung Sahn Soen-sa.

After the rugby is completed both sides will return to their otherwise friendly relationship and march together in the Queens St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Following the parade both sides will enjoy the live music of the notoriously famous Shilelagh Law at the Rugby Clubhouse (113 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard). Also scheduled to perform are local artists Wine With Sue and Inda Culture. DJ Nicko will be spinning and winning. The live Music starts with Shilelagh Law promptly at 3:30pm. All are welcome to come down and enjoy the game and the festivities.

Rugger Pluggers:

The Rockaway Fisheads would like to put out a formal challenge of a game of whiffle ball to the original members of Rockaway Rockies Hockey club. The game can played within the friendly confines of the giant rugby club backyard. All proceeds to go to charity. Name the time and date fellas.

Captain Kenny Whelan of Belle Harbor is offering free extreme moped lessons to anyone interested. Some of his tricks include pop-in wheelies, spinning out and flips of all kids. Ken will be participating in the up coming World Police Fire Games/extreme sports competition this coming summer.
