Olde Boys Rugby - On the Weekend

2020 Golden Oldies Rugby Festival: Quest for the Golden Grail is on!
Colorado Select Ol' Boys plus Queen City RFC Olde Boys
Saturday at the Jake

Colorado Select Ol’ Boys began preparations for next year’s global competition, which will be held in Greater Denver, with a stern test versus the Queen City RFC Olde Boys at the Jake on RugbyDay. Players from Queen City, notably CSOB charter member, Cliff Kimble, coach Charlie Haupt (only ‘cause he was on crutches!), Herk Koranski and Bud Bilanich, were instrumental in the formation of CSOBs along with Barbarians front row, Fred Alexander, Joe Garrity, brothers Bill & Joel Gregg and a list of rugby stars who illuminated the paddock either side of the millennium.
Backhouse minds the scrum-put
And they were all shining brightly during RugbyDay last at the Jake on the day. CSOBs saw the return to form of Denver Highlanders/Breckenridge Blue Goose halfback, Russ Backhouse, and looked sharp through the midfield on to the wing three-quarters where the venerable Denver Harlequins’ Scott Norris alternately fired and cooled his jets. For their measure, Queen City functioned well in cycling ball out wide, crashing in the centers and turnover at breakdown as each XV worked the pill effectively with a weather eye towards June 2020.
