Håckes Cup 2015

Written by on March 5, 2015


It’s that time of the year again, the unofficial opening to the start of the Swedish rugby year, Håckes Cup. And after a long off-season, the ladies team is ready to unleash the first edition of their squad on the indoor turf of Tipshallen in Växjö, but this year there’s a twist…

Following the popularity and success of the ‘North to South’ team, a joint enterprise between the ladies of Lugi and Umeå at the Stockholm 10s, the two clubs decided to give it another go in order to get together as strong and complete a team as possible for Håckes.

The team have been handed quite possible one of the toughest Håckes groups in recent memory as they face off against Göteborg, Pingvin and Wexiö in group 1, playing at 08:20, 12:20 and 18:20 respectively on Saturday.

The strength of the group is testament to how the tournament has grown, with the ladies competition expanding to 12 teams to match the men’s format and attracting team’s such as the Tabusoro Angels and the Danish national team.

With the departure of Mican for pastures new in Stockholm, Anna Thynell is now the Lioness in charge of the pack, and the team looks forward to her fearless leadership on and off the park. However that said, we haven’t lost Mican just yet as she will be joining us for the tournament for one last go round in her (self admitted) favourite colours.

Overall the team is looking at this tournament as a building experience and a chance to test out the new blood whilst giving us a platform to head into the new season.

Live scores will be posted on the team’s app and reports from the games will be posted on the Facebook page.

Julkul med Lugi

Written by on December 11, 2014


– Julavslutning för HELA klubben, efter en fantastisk End of Season dinner hade det varit grymt kul att göra något mer med alla, även de minsta kidsen.
Därför kom tankarna på en julavslutning. Inne i klubbhusets värme med julfika o små tävlingar så som att pimpa pepparkakshus, och såklart kartongleken. Sen kommer tomten, alla köper nån liten grej för typ 15-20kr, som funkar lika bra för en 8åring som en 58åring och alla där emellan.

– Hade varit kul att se alla åldrar tillsammans o tror det kan vara bra för kidsen att få känna att även de är en del av klubben o de ser upp till de äldre.


Kommer förbi klubben tisdag 16:e kl 17:00.

“Mican” uttagen i svensk trupp

Written by on October 17, 2014


Från Lunds Lokaltidning.

I år är det 30 år sedan det svenska damlandslaget spelade sin allra första landskamp. Det firas med match i 15-manna rugby mot Holland, det land man ställdes mot i sin allra första landskamp. Micaela ”Mican” Francke-Rydén, lagkapten och flanker i Lugi Lions RFC, är en av spelarna i truppen.

– Vi är 25 uttagna och tre blir reserver. Jag hoppas så klart att få spela. Det är ju inte så ofta det spelas landskamp hemma i Sverige och då är det ju äntligen dags att få spela nu när det avgörs i Malmö, tycker ”Mican”.

Sverige ställs mot Holland i Malmö, Lindängens ip, på lördag den 18 oktober.
– Holland är duktiga, men vi har spelat bra mot de tidigare. Jag har aldrig mött de själv men statistiken talar för att det blir en jämn, men absolut spännande match. Måste jag tippa tror jag vi vinner, säger ”Mican”.
Lugi- och landslagskamraten Martina Vivlund är skadad och missar tyvärr landskampen.
