BSC Old Boys – Addiction & Order
Training: Wednesday 18:30-20:30
Rugby over 40 is great: the training is moderate. Lots of touch rugby. We stay fit and have a good reason to have a few beers together once a week. Training takes place on the grass pitches of the BSC in Hubertusallee in Berlin-Wilmersdorf. If you want, you can go to old boys games with us. Tackling, passing and try scoring is all it takes.
The old men or old boys of the BSC are from 40 to over 60 years old. An international group of former BSC players and newcomers in Berlin.
Some of us also play with the “Old Prussians”. This is an amalgamation of players from various Berlin rugby clubs. The Old Prussians are not only going to the games in the Brandenburg area, but also to tournaments all over Europe.
The rules of the game with the old men are the rules of 15s rugby, but defused: no pressure in the scrum, no lifting in the line-out, no kicks, no counter-rucking after a tackle.
From the age of 60, players can wear red shorts. You may then be held, but not tackled to the ground. And, almost the most important rule: every player can be replaced at any time, relax, and come back into the game later.
