Fun, Friendship, Fraternity and Family!

Like a number of other sports, Rugby is available for the over 35+ who wish to play – and enjoy – the Game they have loved for years … and in many cases, years and years!!

Generally, the normal Laws or Rules of the Game apply, with minor alterations… unlimited substitutions, shorter playing times, over vigorous play is discouraged and at all times, the emphasis is on – “Fun, Friendship, Fraternity and Family!”

This is where you shall find all the Latest News about Golden Oldies Rugby, throughout Europe !

3rd  EGOR Festival – 9  Nationalities in one Team….it was the Whisky that did it…

An Introduction Video

During early 2015, EGOR President – Dave McDonald – was working with three Media Students from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland making a DVD about Golden Oldies Rugby.

It is hoped that all involved in Golden Oldies Rugby shall find it of interest and please feel free to forward the Link to all Rugby Friends.

If you do not have a Golden Oldies Team but would like to create one and find out more,  email moc.liamgnull@ybgurseidlog

Thanks go to the Placement Students –  Kirstin Gault, Ifigeneia Moutsou and Lauren Ritchie. Well Done !
