On Saturday May 11th we were invaded by a bunch of mad Englishmen from Buckingham RUFC. It started way before the game with a night at J.J. Murphy’s for pre-game antics and drinking. There were 40 members from Buckingham and they came to shake things up in Sofia and managed to do just that. There were costumes and drinking games and crazy rules and at times nothing at all on. But before I digress here is a selection of images from the day on the pitch as others images are not what we want to remember.
The final of the day was 50-36 as the visiting team made a late game surge to pull ahead in the last ten minutes. There was some good rugby skills demonstrated from both sides throughout the day. Man of the Match for the Misfits was Mirco Nolte who was all over the pitch on both offence and defense displaying fast burst speed with the ball past the opponents and chasing them down with impressive tackles. We also had three newcomers to the Misfits who had there first game with us without any practice. They managed to fit in well despite not knowing any of the other players prior to the day. Matthew Carr, Drakebook Drake and Francis Stewart who also managed to get his first try on this day as well. Thank you gentlemen and hope to see more of you on the pitch. Also we had some of the regulars who were solid as well and captured in the action. Thanks for the support from Sasho and the Barbarians who also played them on Sunday.
The third half was enjoyed at J.J. Murphy’s and and team captain Stefan Doychev did the Misfits proud by beating their speed drinker in a two pint challenge. Then to finish off the games one of our own Misfit’s girlfriend, Yasena, beat their claimed slow drinker by a wide margin. This prompted the other team to give praise to her and claimed that she was “a keeper”. A special Thank You to Branko for all his support at J.J. Murphy’s
