Valkyries join forces with Würenlos and have their first training camp
The Valkyries kicked off their season with a combined training weekend with the ladies of Würenlos as they will combine their forces for the upcoming 2018/19 season!
The newly formed team #würizüri had an intense training day on Saturday where the main focus was on fitness, individual skills and game strategy.
After the intense training day lead by Coach Cory #würizüri welcomed the Basel Birds at the Allmend Brunau in Züri for a friendly game. The rules of a normal 7s game applied but both teams agreed to play 9 v 9 over 3 x 10 minutes. #würizüri (with no surprise) had some hard times over the first 2 halves of the game getting together and finding each other as a team on the pitch. Only in the third half the newly formed team managed to show case some brilliant individual attacking skills and continuous efforts to win the game against the Basel Birds. For #würizüri it was a great experience, and hopefully not the last one, to kick off their campaign! The team has high hopes to prove their quickness of developing as a team and learn from each other over the next months to come!
A big thanks goes out to the Basel Birds to come along and give us such great opposition and of course a massive THANK YOU to the helpers at the BBQ: you all made it an amazing Rugby Sunday!
