Following a selection camp in Jönköping last weekend, the club is delighted to announce the selection of Sandra Olofsson to the U18s 7s squad that will take part in the European Championships to be held in Liege, Belgium next month.

Following Sweden’s appearance and hosting of the championship last year in Enköping, the union have continued with development of the U18 girls through the national talent development program, which features regional and national training days. Sandra has been consistent presence at these camps in the south as well on the training pitch in Lund and is being rightly rewarded for the time and effort she has put into her training with her selection.

The competition in Belgium will be tough as the team will take on some of Europe’s traditional women’s powerhouses in England, Ireland, Russia and Netherlands alongside a host of up and coming nations on the rugby scene. The full lineup can be seen on Rugby Europe’s webpage.

We wish Sandra and all the girls a big good luck in their endeavours next month and we will be sure to bring you as many updates as possible.

The full U18s team selection can be seen on the Swedish Union’s webpage.

Coach Ross Watson working on the kids level.

This week the club has been working with the Lunds Giants ice hockey club to bring over 130 kids a taste of rugby. Over the week and spanning six different training sessions the club delivered an hour of fun rugby activities to groups of children aged from 7 to 11 years old.

The sessions were executed by team members from the youth, gents and ladies sections, who’s volunteer work made the trainings possible as well as fun for the children. As the club continues to grow, especially within the younger age groups, the importance and good work of our outreach to local schools such as Spyken and Polhemskolan in Lund as well as our new partnership with the Lund Giants cannot be understated.

We would like to take this time to thank those entities which allow us to show more people rugby and we look forward to having more opportunities in the future.

Pictures from the week

Volunteers – Ida Tadic (kids trainer & ladies team), Elizabeth Sonnenholzner (ladies team), Viktor Cordes (men’s captain), Truls Sassner (youth team), Tobias Magnusson (men’s team), Sebastian Hylander (men’s team), Tadas Valutis (men’s team), Sandra Olofsson (ladies team) and Ross Watson (club coach).
