In May 2016 Old Albanian Saints past and present were joined by 9 ladies from Shelford Rugby Club on a memorable (dependant on alcohol intake) trip to Amsterdam 7’s. Dressed in their best Women’s Institute attire, the ‘Buns and Roses’ tour 2016 got off to an early start, which soon started to sort the ladies from the girls. The weekend started socially, with several hours in various bars, whilst some of the girls had longer tours around Amsterdam than they had first planned for. The rugby itself was of a high standard as we played several challenging matches against the Dutch and Swedish National sides. The weekend was filled with fun, frolics and fancy dress but sadly nothing else can be disclosed…what goes on tour, stays on tour, after all!
