I just got the finalized brackets from Rugby Indiana. It's time for the playoffs!
Here is the complete bracket, so you can keep track of potential dates. (It's a single elimination tourney) http://www.rugbyindiana.com/spring2017brackets (remember the 7th/8th is bracketed as Westfield)
Your bracket is based on record. This means we have the early play in round.
Game 1 is Thursday vs Southeastern B team. We play at 7:00. (Cyntheanne Rd Park, just like the weekend games) If we win this game, we are playing this weekend. (Check the bracket link above to see what that may look like)
This tourney is a blind draw, and I think we drew very well.
Round 1 is Sunday, Vs Carmel. We will play at River Rd Fields at 2:30. If we win, we play next Sunday as well.
I must stress this. We only have 10 players. In the tournament, we cannot borrow players. We can only play with who we brought, so we need everyone there. If someone doesn't show up, that means we have to take the field a player down. We don't want to do that. On the plus side, the other teams are capped at 15 players on the roster, so this will prevent us from facing a fresh side every quarter. I need all hands on deck for the tournament.
Flag doesn't play a tournament. They do, however, get to go play at the Fishers High School football stadium. They think it's pretty cool to play on the turf.
Game time is 2:00
The address is 13000 Promise Rd, Fishers, IN 46038
I have to go out of town on Thursday, and wont be home until Sunday night. I have made arrangements with all of the coaches, so make sure you direct questions to them.
I want to keep watching the boys play, so I hope they all win so that I can!
However, no matter what the outcome of this round, I can't say enough how proud I am of each and every player. They have faced so much adversity, and have played tough and stayed strong. You have all done an awesome job raising great kids, and they have all impressed each member of the coaching staff in their own way.
We still have a team party to do postseason, and I sure could use some help putting that together. Please reach out with any thoughts.
FLAG TEAMS - You will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6:00 to 7:00 at the High School pitch with Coach Kinslow.
Our practice schedule will be as follows:
Mondays - 6:00 - 7:30 at Noblesville (Westfield will join us)
Tuesday - No Practice
Wednesday - 6:00 - 7:30 at Westfield Monon Trail Elementary School 19400 Tomlinson Road, Westfield, IN 46074 (same place we played on Saturday)
Thursday - 6:00 - 7:30 at Noblesville
I am sure this causes some conflicts for some of you, and I apologize. Just reach out and let me know if you have schedule challenges, and we can work something out. If transport is an issue, let me know, and we can probably work out some sort of carpool arrangement with other parents as well.
Monday - 6:00 - 7:30 at Noblesville
Thursday -6:00 - 7:30 at Noblesville
(You can go to Westfield on Wednesdays if you want, but it's totally optional). This is the best I can do right now, due to coach availability.

My child doesn't know anything about rugby and is nervous
Many of our players each season are brand new. I can promise that they won't be alone. We are good at teaching rugby, and they will catch on quickly. Plus, we have some great "learn the game" videos in our "What is rugby" tab.
