I am really sad that I have to write this text. But our friend and teammate Siggi has left us. On the last Wednesdays morning April 8th, his heart broke after an attack. It would be great if we could turn back the time, but it is what it is.
It’s hard to describe a man by a few sentences and in this case even harder when it considers a man who was so loved by so many.
In less, he gave a lot. A generous man who was always willing to share and contribute. In happiness, he gave even more happiness. Always willing to spread joy with a good mood and a smile you could not resist. In friendship, he gave all! A trustful friend who really gave all to help and support you, a frank friend who could guide you when you asked him for advice.
Siggi was taken far too early from us, he just turned 50 years old this year.
This year we decided to join 10. Internationaler Heini-Cup für Rugbyoldies in Berlin, Germany. The squad is building up and we are looking forward to participate with great games and lots of fun! See you in Berlin September 28th – 29th!
What a tour! We did it again! Skåne OBR was able to complete its seventh tour abroad. Glasgow fulfilled our expectations more than well. Warm and hot weather, welcoming people from the city and pubs in every corner was the setting to make this to a perfect tour.
Our thanks go to our host, the team GHA Gazelles and John Willock. Great facilities and clubhouse, two games and a 3rd half which will be unforgettable, was more than we wish for. I hope to see you in Sweden soon.
Our thanks also go to, Graeme Brown for the hotel booking and arrangement in Glasgow, and Anthony Carpentier who supplied the match shirt and shorts.
Last thanks go to our sponsors which made us look like a team; Drumbar, Dlab, Nova Rehab and MABI.
We also want to welcome the new teammates to the SOBR team, Jonas Björnström, Anders Hasselblatt and Erlingur Bjarni Hinriksson, well played and contributed! We hope that you want and choose to play with us in the future. Unfortunately, Keir Puplett has to go back to Australia and this was his last tour with us (just for a while we hope), we gonna miss you!
Our mission in Glasgow is completed and done! We landed, played, partied and spread and shared the rugby spirit. All according to our plan to achieve world domination.
And yes! We are living in a yellow submarine, HUH!! 😉
