Ending on a High

Dec 18, 2016

The BSN Minis closed out the year with three fine wins at DIOK on Saturday.  With the floodlights on to fight the gloom, BSN played DIOK, HRC2 and Rotterdam, winning 5-0, 4-2 and 6-0.  The play by the forwards was the highlight, with dominant scrummaging throughout and one of the forwards, David, took home the…

Friendlies in the Mist

Dec 11, 2016

With the cloud starting at ground level, the Minis travelled to Sasenheim for matches against the home team, RC Bassets, and RC DIOK Leiden. Although we had promised to bring two sides, a shortage in numbers meant that we had one side to play as BSN A and BSN B. This resulted in the Minis…

Out of the Arms of the Octopus

Nov 26, 2016

Under blue skies, the Minis had a successful Bondsdag in Noord Brabant. BSN lined up on a frosty field in Uden against RC Octopus representing Nord Brabant, RC Eemland representing Utrecht, and Voorburgse RC Zuid Holland. First up was Eemland, who BSN hadn’t played in a year. The last meeting was as Benjis in a…

California Dreamin’

Nov 19, 2016

Some west coast warmth would have been welcome. The leaves may have been brown and the skies grey in Leiden, but the BSN Minis found success . Two games won. The first against DIOK by a good margin and the second against HRC in a closely contested game of rugby. BSN scored eleven tries against…

Winning in the Rain

Nov 6, 2016

The BSN Minis brought two teams to HRC, winning five out of six games in the sunshine and the showers. Fielding an A and a B team, BSN played against teams from Delft, Hermes Schiedam, DIOK and HRC.   BSN A took on Delft B in their first match and racked up the tries. Louis scored…

Nightmare with the Hookers?

Oct 30, 2016

The weekends Halloween fixture at the British School was changed at the last minute (I can’t guess why?), which meant an early… 9:00am kick-off at The Hookers. We’ll forgive the Dutch planners as they wouldn’t have known the school was closed! With many players still on holiday, a full 15 “man” squad recorded wins against The…

No slip-ups at HRC

Oct 16, 2016

The half term holidays seem to come around thick ‘n’ fast nowadays and with depleted squad sizes affecting all regional clubs, it resulted in a fixture change from Sparta to HRC, allowing us to play on their new all-singing, all-dancing 4G pitches. Whilst the Minis were fielding only one squad, we had more than enough…

BSN Minis take the Jan van Burg Trophy

Oct 9, 2016

The Minis travelled to the Hook of Holland to spend the day competing in the Jan van Burg trophy.  Eight teams turned up from across Zuid Holland and were split into two pools of four, with BSN lining up against the Bassets, Delft and HRC.  Gouda and Rotterdam waited in the knock-out stages, but no…

New Recruits

Sep 24, 2016

The normal yearly disruption to the players schedule doesn’t come in the form of weather phenomenon’s in Holland but the annual iPad roll-out program at the British School, which meant the Minis were missing around 9 players for today’s fixture at Sparta. Still, it was a blessing in disguise, as it grave the coaches an…

Sparked into Life

Sep 22, 2016

A year on from the Hutspottoernooi, BSN were back at DIOK.  They were no longer Benjis and there was no stew pot trophy to win, but there were games to be played against the home side and old rivals, HRC. DIOK were first up and BSN eased into a 5-0 first half lead.  A pass…
