Our regular field is closed for maintenance so for the month of December and possibly January we’ve had to make some changes. The training days changed slightly to Mon and Thurs, with the exception this week being Wed and Thursday. Most fields are closed for Dec and Jan so this is our last resort. Here are the dates we have reserved at Showalter East.
Location: Showalter East
Address: 2525 Cady Way, Winter Park, FL 32792

*Current players: We are meeting at the pitch at 10:30am (actual time, not rugby time) to get the fields lined. This is not optional. We’re all one team, all part of the Orlando Rugby family, and they deserve our support.
The Old Boys are an important part of Orlando Rugby and your support is always appreciated. Hope to see you all on Saturday. Note – The Citrus Bowl will be hosting the Florida Football Classic so we will do our best to get everyone parked on the perimeter of the field. Please account for the additional traffic.
This Saturday the Orlando Griffins will take on the Daytona Coconuts RFC. We will look to bounce back from an unfortunate loss last weekend and prove to the state that we are a force to be feared. Practices have gone smoothly this week and hopes are high with an eagerness to return to the win column, and prove to Coach Eugene that we are worthy of his wisdom.
If you can, please join us as we play Daytona at Emory Riddle Field in Daytona at 2:00 pm.
Kick off at 2pm
1604 Richard Petty Blvd
Daytona Beach, FL 32118
Men, please meet at the Home Depot in Lake Mary NO LATER THAN 9:30AM, so that we can leave at 10:30am and arrive at the field at 11:30 and cheer on the youth who play Daytona u19 at noon.
It was a disappointing start to the the season on Saturday as Orlando fell to a well traveled Tridents team, 41-14. Orlando was plagued by penalties and 3 yellow cards that suppressed any momentum that might have been. The men were held on their heals for the majority of the match only putting points on the board in the last 20 minutes.
Hopefully this rude awakening will stir the fires that drive us to win next week as Orlando will take on Daytona Coconuts RFC, in Daytona.
We hope to see everyone at our new practice field behind Spatz so that we can correct the problems we faced last weekend.
