Glendale Raptors vs San Francisco Golden Gate Rhinos PRP Grand Final

A year ago (yesterday) I slammed my hand in a car door, requiring 7 stitches in my right index finger. My shooting finger. It was two days before the PRP Grand Final. I was on strict orders to rest for ten days. No shooting, no heavy lifting. I had covered the entire season, to miss the final left me feeling pretty terrible. Through a pretty heavy haze of pain killers I followed the game on Twitter. The Raptors won, bringing home their first PRP championship. When the Raptors secured their place in the final last Saturday, I knew I needed to I make sure to be extra careful this week. I wasn’t going to miss the final two years in a row. The caution was worth it. The Raptors took home their second straight PRP championship yesterday. Dominating San Francisco Golden Gate from the opening whistle. Congratulations to the Raptors and the entire organization. Thanks for looking.

Shooting the Raptors over the last three seasons has been a ridiculous amount of fun. I had never shot rugby prior to being asked to shoot a sevens tournament, much less having ever seen a match. Its been a learning experience but a fun one at that. With PRO Rugby starting in Denver in the last month, it will be interesting to see where the game goes here in America.

GLENDALE, CO - MARCH 12: Denver Barbos vs Santa Monica Dolphins at Infinity park in Glendale, Colorado on March 12, 2016.

GLENDALE, CO – MARCH 12: Denver Barbos vs Santa Monica Dolphins at Infinity park in Glendale, Colorado on March 12, 2016.

Saturday’s are for rugby. Over the last three years I’ve spent almost every Saturday in the spring and fall on the pitch in Glendale shooting rugby. I haven’t blogged about it or spoke about it much. I’ve kept it under the radar for the most part and I can’t tell you why. The Glendale Raptors as an organization have been amazing and very easy to work with. Their dedication to growing the game in Denver has been awesome to watch. In an attempt to actually blog more, I’ll be posting up photos after every game starting next week. The season started a while ago so the first two months of the season will be put in digest form. Thanks for looking.
