Rugby 7s – Čunovo Bratislava last round season 2016/2017

rugby bratislava ragby slovakia slovensko american football soccer nove mesto

Jún priniesol posledný turnaj sezóny 2016/2017 a RKB tak zavŕšil už dve kompletné sezóny. Záver s rugby sevens prišiel vhod, keďže začiatok leta zredukoval náš tím na osem ľudí.
Naším hlavným cieľom bolo zlepšenie hry v porovnaní s predchádzajúcim turnajom – zlé zachytávanie výkopov, zlé prihrávky, zlý prehľad v hre, neskorá podpora.

Proti Piešťanom sa nám podarilo zvíťaziť; naše jediné, no o to cennejšie víťazstvo na turnaji. Na úvod nás mladý tím prekvapil. Ani ja som nečakal takú pozitívnu agresivitu od úvodných sekúnd a prvé dve minúty sme nehrali na sto percent. Potom všetci začali hrať zodpovedne, zlepšili sme hru a zvýšili sme obrátky. Vďaka dobrým kopom a prehľadu o hre sa nám podarilo troma položeniami obrátiť skóre a udržať ho vďaka dobrej obrane aj v druhom polčase. Celý tím RKB ocenil toto zriedkavé víťazstvo, najmä pčš nedostatok hráčov na lavičke, ktorí by mohli priniesť čerstvú energiu.

Prehrali sme zápas proti Trnave, tímu, ktorý patril k hlavným uchádzačom o titul. Ja som oddychoval na lavičke, pretože som rozhodoval predchádzajúci zápas. RKB proti Trnave odviedol svoju prácu.

Na zápas proti Žiline sme nastúpili s nádejou na tvrdo vydreté víťazstvo, no už prvé minúty zápasu ukázali, že v prvých dvoch stretnutiach sme vydali príliš veľa síl. Nedokázali sme držať krok s čerstvejšou a skúsenejšou Žilinou. Pre únavu väčšiny tímu sa nám podarilo skórovať len raz, keď sme boli blízko pokladiska, vďaka dobrému mlynu. Celkovo však naša hra bola príliš priemerná na to, aby sme mohli dúfať v dobrý výsledok bez náhradníkov.

Posledný zápas proti Slovanu bol pre súpera generálkou pred finále proti Trnave. S prázdnymi baterkami sme hrali so srdcom a troma juniormi zo Žiliny, ktorým sme vďační za podporu. Pre nedostatok kreativity sme sa trápili na vlastnej polovici a čelili sme rozdieluv kvalite a oddýchnutosti. Mrzí ma, že niektoré rozhodnutia rozhodcu išli proti nám – bolo zopár nepotrestaných vysokých skládok, neodpískaných prihrávok dopredu a nečistej hry v rucku bez odozvy. Celkovo však bol súboj dobrý a ako kapitán a tréner musím vidieť tieto detaily, ktoré ovplyvnili náš tím.


Hodnotenie RKB hráčov

Čo sa týka rojníkov, Xavier držal mlyn a bol efektívny zdvíhač pri lineoutoch. Príliš veľké bicepsy v tesnom tričku však spôsobili, že prišiel na podporu neskoro a určite by z neho lepšia kondička spravila nebezpečnejšieho hráča.
Július na poslednom turnaji chýbal a tak rugby sevens objavil až tento víkend. Vďaka dobrej fyzičke zahral na nováčika dobre a istil každú loptu. Slavo získava v sedmičkách čoraz viac skúseností a bol skvelý skokan, získal neuveriteľne veľa lôpt a možno bol najlepším skokanom turnaja.
Ja ako číslo 9 a zároveň pri sedmičkovom lineoute hooker som bol dvakrát potrestaný za to, že som nestál vnútri päťmetrovej zóny, čo je pravidlo, o ktorom som nevedel. Palo bol náhradník a podporoval nás z lavičky, nosil vodu, fotil a striedal vyčerpaných hráčov.
V útoku som bol ja ako mlynovka, v tejto pozícii hrávam posledných šesť mesiacov aj v pätástkach, takže si na to musím zvyknúť a prijať túto výzvu až dokým sa neobjaví ozajstná mlynovka. Potom sa budem môcť posunúť na pozíciu centra alebo tretej rady, v ktorej som efektívnejší.
Richard ako číslo 10, pretože sedmičky majú len troch hráčov v mlyne, priniesol svoje skúsenosti a vodcovstvo. Skóroval keď bolo treba, videl diery v obrane. Hral s rozumom a šetril energiu na správny čas.
Mathieu objavil sedmičky a využil svoje triatlonové kapacity, takže bol takmer všade na ihrisku. Bohužial, rugby si vyžaduje roky tréningu a tak spravil zopár zlých prihrávok, pokazil zopár šancí, ale splnil svoju úlohu v obrane. Paul junior U18 dvakrát skóroval proti Piešťanom a zaistil naše víťazstvo. S celkovým skóre 4 položenia sa stal naším najlepším skórovačom. Takže, kámo, priprav pre trénera nejaké pivá, musíme to osláviť.

In June, it was the last tournament of the season 2016/2017. Already two full rugby seasons for the Rugby Klub Bratislava.

Finishing with a rugby 7s, it was a perfect perspective for our crew reduced to 8 only due to the beginning of summer time holiday for some members.

Our main expectation was to improve our own gameplay focusing on the previous mistakes made comparing to the last tournament (kick off knock on, bad or medium passes, bad vision and gameplay orientation, late support).

We were able to win against Piestany, our only victory but precious of that tournament, surprised on the very beginning but the young squad. Indeed, most of the squad, included me, didn’t expect big positive aggressiveness at the very first seconds of the match and we didn’t play 100% the first 2 mn. Then everyone took his responsibility to improve their skills and increase the energy spending. Thanks to good kicks and clear vision, we were able to score 3 tries comparing to the first 2 tries Piestany scored, and hold a good defense on the second half. The whole RKB crew appreciated that victory, pretty rare regarding the lack of players on the bench which could bring fresh energy.

We lost the match against Trnava, a team who was the main contender to win the rugby 7s championship in front of the Slovan team. Myself on the bench resting after being a referee the previous match. The RKB crew did the job against Trnava.

For the match against Zilina, we have hoped a potential and hard victory, but the first minutes of the game showed us we had spent already a lot of energy for the first two matches and couldn’t counter that much the Zilina squad, fresher and more experienced. Due to the tiredness of most of the RKB crew, we have score once when we were closed to the try zone, thanks to a good scrum ; but the global rugby gameplay was too medium for hoping we could do a hold up without sub.

The last match against Slovan was for our opponent kind of rehearsing match before the final one against Trnava to compete for the title in Slovakia. Once again, batteries empty, playing with the heart and 3 juniors from Zilina, which we are grateful they supported us again. Due to the lack of creativity, we were struggling in our own zone and face the difference of power and freshness. I regret in that last match for us few referring decisions went against us, for example couple of high tackles which should be penalized in our favor, forward passes not blown, and foul play sometimes into the ruck. But globally the fight was good, and as captain and trainer, I must see those details impacting our crew.

Charlies – trainer, player


Review RKB players

For the forwards, Xavier hold the scrum and was an efficient lifter for the line out. Too big biceps for his tight shirt causing him late support and surely better cardio would help to be more dangerous the whole game. Julius missing the last rugby 7s tournament, has discovered the rugby 7s that week end, and thanks to a good physical condition, he had made the job correctly for a newbie and secure every balls as it was announced at the beginning of the tournament. Slaov getting more experiences into the rugby 7s business, was a terrific jumper, stealing insanely plenty of balls and possibly the best jumper of the tournament. Being myself number 9 and ”hooker” for the lineout rugby 7s style, I was penalized twice for not staying inside the 5 m zone, rule which I didn’t know. Palo was our sub, supporting us from the bench with water and picture, and replacing any players destroyed by the game.

The backs were composed with me first as a scrum half, playing in that position the last 6 months, also in rugby XV, so I imagine I must get used to it and accept this new challenge until someday a real scrum half would appear and I could move back to a move efficient position to me as a center or third row. Richard, positioning in number 10, because the rugby 7s included only 3 players into the scrum, brought his experience and leadership for the crew, scoring precious tries with his ability to see the gap, playing a clever tournament and using energy when it was the right time. Matthieu has discovered the rugby 7s and uses his Triathlon capacities to be almost everywhere on the bitch. Unfortunately rugby requires years of practice and he made couple of wrong passes, wasting few opportunities we had sometimes, but did the job in defense. The last for the best ? or almost, our youngest player Paul junior U18 scored 2 tries the first match against Piestany, securing our only victory of that tournament and after his 2 tries last time, reaching a total score of 4 tries accumulated – he becomes our best tries scorer. So buddy, please prepare the beers for the coach, you must celebrate it (fresh if possible).

Detský turnaj, Čunovo – Bratislava

V sobotu 10. júna 2017 si deti zmerali sily v dvoch kategóriách, mini rugby U8-10 a juniori U12-14. Na turnaji sa zúčastnili ako organizátor Slovan Bratislava, RKB, Trnava, Piešťany a Brno.

Mini rugby bolo fantastické a v porovnaní s predchádzajúcimi turnajmi sme boli svedkami veľkého zlepšenia. Hoci sa stále dá pracovať predovšetkým na lepších prihrávkach a neminutých skládkach, videli sme, že najmladší majú prehľad a napríklad sa už naučili ako správne zakladať ruck.

Juniori U12-14 robia mesiac čo mesiac veľké pokroky. Jasne vidím potenciál a budúcich hráčov pre seniorský tím a prípadne pre juniorskú reprezentáciu. Rugby Klub Bratislava sa spojil s Rugby Club Spartak Trnava, keďže veľa našich juniorov už je na dovolenkách alebo sa nemohli zúčastniť z iného dôvodu. Chýbal aj asistent trénera.

Podľa môjho subjektívneho pohľadu bol najlepším hráčom tímu a možno aj celého turnaja Tomáš. Marek robil veľké prieniky do obrany a na jeho zastavenie boli treba traja a viacerí hráči. Tom, ktorý je vekovo medzi kategóriami, chcel hrať s najstaršími a vyrovnal sa vďaka svojej rýchlosti a zručnosti aj väčším súperom.

Náš malý Teo v kategórii mini rugby hral so Slovanom a predviedol fantastické prieniky a jasný prehľad v porovnaní s deťmi jeho veku. Presné kopy a dobrá obrana z neho spravili platného hráča a určite bude žiadanou posilou pre ďalšie turnaje.

RKB myslí aj na nášho bojovníka Jakuba, ktorý si na poslednom turnaji poranil ruku, takže nemohol hrať. Napriek tomu prišiel aj s rodičmi podporiť spoluhráčov.

RKB ďakuje Slovanu za skvelú organizáciu, Julovi za nahrávanie videí, Lukášovi za trénovanie zmiešaného tímu RKB-TT a mne ako fotografovi.

On Saturday 10th June 2017, the children has competed with two categories mini-rugby U8-10 and the juniors U12-14.
The clubs represented were the Slovan home organizer, Bratislava, Trnava, Piestany and Brno from CZ.

The mini-rugby were fantastic with a great improvement since the last tournaments. Too many tackles missed and passes could be improved, but we saw the youths had a good vision, and started for example to set correctly a ruck.

For the juniors U12-14, the youths moved a big step forward month after month, and I can see clearly potential and future players for the seniors squad, eventually for the Juniors U18 national team.
The Rugby Klub Bratislava has been associated with the Rugby Club Spartak Trnava, as we had couple of juniors in holiday or involved in different activities missing more than half the squad and our assistant trainer himself.
On my very subjective perspective, I would nominate Tomas as the best player of the team and potential the best player of the tournament for children. Marek made terrific shocks into the defense, where they needed to be 3 players or more to tackle him down.
Tom, who is between the two categories wanted to play with the oldest for bigger challenges and was able to counter taller opponents with speed and handling abilities.
Our little Teo who was involved with the mini-rugby Slovan Bratislava to compose a full team showed fantastic runs and clear and better vision comparing to the children of his age. Kicking with accuracy and with good defense, he made a big impact into the mini-rugby squad and sure he would be very desired for the next competitions.
The Bratislava Rugby school is thinking about our warrior Jakub who has injured his hand last tournament in Bratislava and was not able to participate but made effort with his parents to support the crew.

The Rugby Klub Bratislava is grateful to the Slovan rugby for the good organization, Julius for recording videos, Lukas from Trnava as trainer Juniors for the mixed team BA-TT, and myself as a photographer.

”Summer time” Bratislava rugby tréningy

Rugby ragby Bratislava Slovakia Europe Sport club American Football Skola Slovensko

Počas Júla v Rugby Klube Bratislava pokračujeme v tréningoch. Tréningy v Auguste ešte nie sú dohodnuté. Viac info bude na Facebooku.

Z dôvodu prázdnin sa spoja detské tréningy so seniormi, kde sa budeme zdokonaľovať v touch rugby a v “práci” so šiškou. Preto sú tieto tréningy veľmi dobrou príležitosťou pre každého začiatočníka, keďže tréningy budú o kúsok ľahšie ako zvyčajne.

 

The Rugby Klub Bratislava will continue their trainings this summer time, with July confirmed. For August, keep following us on Facebook to see the news whether we keep training or we would get a break.

Due to the holidays, we will mix the rugby school and the senior squad with a touch rugby exercises and different handling skills. That period would be a good opportunity to the beginners to try rugby when the trainings would be ”lighter”.

Zilina 46 – 26 RK Bratislava

Rugby Klub Bratislava cestoval do Žiliny v oklieštenej zostave – jednak pre 1. máj a jednak pre 4 ťažké zranenia, ktoré vyradili dobrých hráčov základnej zostavy zo zápasu. Našťastie sme sa mohli znova spoľahnúť na podporu Trnavy (Maxime, Michal a Tomáš) a Piešťan (Adam).

Do Žiliny sme prirodzene smerovali s omnoho menším sebavedomím ako pred zápasom s Piešťanmi pred mesiacom, v ktorom bola naša obrana otvorená ako dvere do krčmy. Takže možno nám pomôže viac rešpektu pred súperom čo sa týka skládok a udržania lopty.

Tentoraz sme skúsili novú taktiku: menej kopov, viac hry rukami, udržanie lopty. Nejako to fungovalo, hoci sme nemali ani jedného náhradníka na lavičke. Som však veľmi spokojný, nemali sme ani jedného zraneného.

Čerstvé RKB sa ujalo vedenia dvoma päťkami, pričom jedna bola premenená. Žilina sa však dotiahla. V druhom polčase sme už boli viac vyčerpaní, zvlášť rojníci, ktorí odviedli perfektnú robotu. Bez ohľadu na to, koľkí sme boli na ihrisku, trénovať takúto skupinu ako hrajúci tréner je šťastie. Hráči, ktorí bojovali za čierny dres až do konca, to sme my: veríme v hodnoty, ktoré sú za logom RKB.

Nanešťastie, na posledných desať minút som musel odísť na trestnú lavicu, napriek penalte v náš prospech. Žilinské číslo 9 z Česka totiž úmyselne držalo loptu a odhodilo ju, hoci som chcel rozohrať rýchlo.

Čo sa týka bezpečnosti, Žiline by som odporučil zabezpečiť si ochranu tyčí namiesto narážačov, len tak opretých o ne bez akéhokoľvek uchytenia.

Celkovo bol duch hry nádherný a zápas v tento slnečný deň musel byť zábavný pre fanúšikov. RKB oceňuje tímového ducha, napriek negatívnemu momentu, spomenutému vyššie. ŽIlina je na čele ligy, rozhodnutie o víťazovi padne o pár týždňov v priamej konfrontácii Žiliny a Piešťan.

Veľmi by sme chceli poďakovať Andree, priateľke nášho hráča Christopha, ktorá bola nosičkou vody a významnou podporou.

Ak bude treba RKB môže poskytnúť podporu v zápase Piešťan a Žiliny.

Teraz sa môžeme sústrediť detský turnaj v nedeľu 14. mája, kam je každý pozvaný, aby sa prišiel pozrieť na deti v akcii.

V júni na nás čakajú dve sedmičkové podujatia a koncom mesiaca zrejme zápas vo Viedni proti RC Donau-B.

Zilina 46 – 26 RK Bratislava

The Rugby Klub Bratislava went to Zilina with a reduce squad, due to the 1st May, and 4 bad injuries which kept good players, part of the starting squad, away for this main event.
Luckily, the club could rely on the support of Trnava (Maxime, Michal, Tomas), and Piestany (Adam).

Actually and naturally, we went to Zilina with much less confidence than the match against Piestany a month ago where our defense was like saloon gates. So may be it helps us to be more respectful to our opponents, in terms of tackling, and conservation of the ball.

New tactic was applied at this time: less kicks, more playing with hands, keeping the ball for giving for free to the opponents. Somehow it works, despite none player on the bench to cover us. We didn’t have any injured player, and I am very pleased.

The Rugby Klub Bratislava, fresh and clean, was able to lead the match with two tries, which one transformed, while Zilina came back to the score. On the second half, we’ve started to be more exhausted, specially our forwards who made a terrific job today, and no matter how many we were on the pitch that day, it makes very happy to lead the group as a coach-player. People fighting for the black jersey to the end, this is how we are made: we believe on values there are behind the logo RKB.

Unfortunately, the last 10 mn, I have received a sin bin, caused from a penalty on our favor, but the number 9 of Zilina coming from CZ kept intentionally the ball and through it away when I was asking to play it quickly.
In term of safety, I would recommend Zilina to have protect protect around the rugby posts, instead to let simply shield in front, without any fixation around.

The global spirit was wonderful and the gameplay for the supporters coming during the sunny day was pretty entertaining from the two teams. RKB still appreciate the good team spirit, despite the negative moment mentioned above. Zilina is leading the Slovak championship, and the final decision would be made in few weeks for the match Piestany vs Zilina.

We are grateful to Andrea, girl friend of our rugby player Christophe who was our water girl today, very friendly support.

The Rugby Klub Bratislava might bring support if needed to Piestany vs Zilina.
Now we will think about the tournament for children on Sunday 14. May, where we invite everyone to come and see children in full action.

In June, we would have expected two rugby 7s events, plus end of the month possibly a month in Wien against RC Donau-B.

Hodnotenie tímu:

Sme radi, že sme konečne postavili dobrý prvý rad s Palom, Giuseppem a Giacomom. Palo podal stabilnejší výkon, zvládal statické časti hry. Giuseppe, náš skvelý kapitán získava sebavedomie pri manažovaní hry, správne organizuje tím v útočných a obranných činnostiach a počas hry robí správne rozhodnutia (napríklad pri výbere spôsobu rozohrania penalty). Sníma tak povinnosti z mojich pliec, takže sa konečne môžem viac sústrediť na svoju vlastnú hru. Giacomo sa vrátil na ihrisko po dlhej prestávke, spôsobenej pracovnými povinnosťami a dovolenkou; prišiel o niekoľko kíl ťažší, no jeho talianska trieda sa prejavila aj proti omnoho čerstvejším hráčom.

Do druhého radu priniesol Richard svoje skúsenosti a nasadenie, či už v mlyne alebo rucku. Dobrý bojový duch a zlepšená fyzička od posledného stretnutia. Michal z Trnavy si vyskúšal novú pozíciu, keďže vo svojom tíme zvyčajne hráva na krídle. Usúdil som však, že lepší bude v roji. Spojením s jeho šikovnými rukami a rýchlosťou dokázal Žilinčanov zopárkrát zmiasť a skórovať.

V treťom rade bol len Július, keďže sa hralo bez rváčkov z dôvodu nedostatku hráčov. Neustále sa učí a zíkava skúsenosti a je veľmi dobrý ako skokan.

Naša mlynová spojka Christophe debutoval na tento pozícii v reálnom zápase. Hoci sa párkrát zle rozhodol, v druhom polčase sa zlepšil. V máji si dá prestávku, keďže ide so svojou priateľkou do Južnej Ameriky. Dúfame, že sa po tomto úžasnom výlete vráti do Bratislavy. Želáme mu skvelú a bezpečnú cestu. Adam sa pridal k nášmu tímu ako útokovka, podporil nás, za čo sme mu vďační. Spoľahlivý ako vždy, s presnými loptami na krídlo. Teším sa, že som si s ním mohol znovu zahrať, potom ako som ho stretol a trénoval pred dvoma rokmi v Piešťanoch.

Na centri sme skúsili novú zostavu so mnou a Slavom, keďže sa hralo bez rváčkov. Slavo skóroval úžasnú päťku, keď získal loptu od Žilinčanov po zlom odkope. Okrem toho párkrát využil diery v obrane a podal dobrý výkon v obrane proti ťažším, no pomalším hráčom.

Na krídlach Tomáš a Michal vyriešili viacero zložitých situácií. Tomáš sa na pár minút posunul na pozíciu centra, kde nachvíľu nahradil po zranení Adama. Škoda, že som nedotiahol tú prihrávku na krídlo, pretože by získal skvelú šancu na skórovanie. Michal oficiálne získal status Machine RKB, keďže pred dvoma týždňami trénoval počas búrky za vetra, snehu a teplôt okolo nuly. Solídny v obrane zabezpečoval loptu v útoku. Odkedy sa pridal k tímu na jeseň tak sa veľmi zlepšuje, hoci bol úplný začiatočník. To znamená, že v RKB je miesto pre každého. Maxime, náš fullback v zápase, konečne ukázal svoj plný potenciál v porovnaní so zápasom s Piešťanmi a robil vietor v obrane Žiliny. Ešte nebol úplne sebavedomý pri vysokých kopoch, no je dobrý, takže dokázal zlé situácie napraviť. Je efektívny aj v obrane. Dobrá práca, kámo a veľa šťastia aj tvojej firme V4Connect.

RKB squad review:

On the first row, we were pleased to have a proper first line with Palo, Giuseppe, and Giacomo. Palo more stable with his performance, was able to handle the static actions of the game. Giuseppe, our wonderful captain, getting more confidence in management, organizing correctly the squad in defense and attack, making right choices during the game (in term of penalties choices for example) releasing responsibilities from my shoulders, the way I can finally focus more about my own game. Giacomo, after a long absence due to holidays and work, came on the pitch was possibly few kilos in extra, but his Italian class made the difference today against much fresher players.

Second row, Richard, bringing his experience and commitment into the scrum, the ruck. Good fighting spirit putting the group forwards. Good physical improvement since last time he’s played. Michal (TT) tried this new position for him, usually use in Trnava on the wing, but I considered he would make a better job in the scrum. Mixing his ability with hand and speed, he confused the Zilina couple of times, where he brought a try.

On the third row, only Julius was present, removing the flankers cause of lack of players. Learning quickly and having more experiences, still very valuable as a jumper.

Our scrum half Christophe made his debut on that position in a real competition. Facing some mistakes in term of choices and bad passes, he could correct the aiming to set correct the gameplay on the second half. He would take a break end of May with his GF to visit the South America and hopefully would come back in Bratislava after this amazing trip, we wish him the best and safe trip. Adam on fly half, joining our squad to support us and we are pleased for it. Reliable as usual with clear ball sent to the wing, I am also very pleased to play on his side after Iv’e met and trained 2 years ago in Piestany.

On the center, new composition with myself and Salvo, who has switched to that position, cause we’ve removed the flankers. Scoring an amazing try, getting a bad from Zilina after a bad kick, he was able to see gaps couple of times and secure the defense against heavier players, but also slower.

On the wings, Tomas and Michal secured few difficult situations. Tomas switch for few minutes on the center position, to cover the partial injury of Adam. Pity I didn’t secure the pass on the wing, because he would have a big opportunity to score. Michal, which has officially got the status of Machine RKB since he trained during the storm two weeks ago, windy, zero degree and snow training. Solid and defense, he secured ball in attack improving a lot since he joined the club in Autumn 2016, without at the very beginning a rugby profile. It means there is place for everyone in RKB. Maxime, our full back of that day, shows finally his potential comparing to the last match against Piestany, putting risk inside the Zilina defense. Not totally confident under the high kick, but good enough to secure bad situation. Still efficient in defense. Good job buddy and good luck for your company V4Connect.
