The J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Cup took place at Old Reigations RFC on Saturday 18th May and was a day full of fast-running, thrilling rugby.
Rugby is continually on the increase here, we have nearly doubled the number of players in the last few weeks. We are also launching a women's team in SESI Tatui. For international Women's day, we decided to hold a session for those interested in the sport. It was a great hit with over 30 ladies involved and a good 30% of them interested in a team so watch this space.
School rugby is on the increase as well, each class is grasping the sport of rugby faster and faster each week. Soon we will be holding a school festival. A large number of students want to play rugby outside of school time now so I will be looking to fit that in as soon as possible. My other SESI Botucatu has really embraced the sport of rugby and would like me to improve them to the standard of SESI Tatui so I have a large challenge ahead.
On Friday I will be off to Sao Paulo to speak at a Seminar held by the British Council to discuss the project with Dom Caton, the Exeter Chiefs Rep SESI Campinas, Scott Watson Premiership Rugby Project manager and the referee manager for the Brazil Rugby union.
