“IE Rugby Club is where I met most of my IE friends from other intakes, sections and programs” (Argentinean from IMBA Jan2017 Intake). We train every Monday at Hortaleza Rugby Club and we organize extra activities to foster team building.
November 4th, we coordinated to have various IE players in a match with Lions. We had a great game winning putting in almost 50 points. International Relations Kiwi import Nick Hutton won man of the match.
November 11th was an international rugby day. Most of the team assembled at James Joyce Bar to see several international test matches and have some drinks. We had our captain Adam Mitchell-Heggs celebrating a victory of England vs Los Pumas of Antonio Feeney. Our Sprinboks Qhawe Ngonyama and Dirk suffered the match between his national team and Ireland. We all ended up on a classic beer contest with Samuel Lewis Ksiazkiewicz and Robert Hilliard as US reps and the September intake showing outstanding skills for this.
This was a fantastic way to finish a year in which we had second places in MBAT and IESE Games. Looking forward to new challenges!
Let’s continue playing, having fun and networking!
