O2Touch players return from a gruelling Touch World Cup in Australia

Seven England teams headed over to Australia to take part in the 8th Touch World Cup with many different divisions.


These teams included Women’s, Mens and Mixed Open, Women’s 27’s, Mens 30’s, Senior Mixed, Mens 40’s and many more. England had 4 teams play in the bronze medal matches where the Women’s 27’s and Mens 40’s both won Bronze Medals (which is a very big achievement) and the Mixed Open and Senior Mixed narrowly missing out.

“I started playing O2Touch rugby in London 4 years ago. Mainly to keep up my fitness in the summer months, meet a few new people in London and also play a sport where the pressure to preform is not as high as playing at a structured Rugby Union club. What has come from playing 2 nights a week in the summer O2Touch social leagues is something I never expected. I have met and made many friends from all over the world, many who I consider to be close friends for life as well as being selected in the England Mens Open Team and I got to play in my first Touch World Cup in Australia.” Gareth McRae, England Men’s Open and O2Touch player in London.
