The Crusaders 29th (2018-19) season is underway.

We kicked off the year with the Meat Cup – the Crusaders own invitational 10s tournament. This was followed up by the Shuto League’s 10s tournament, which officially marked the start of the Shuto League fall season.

The Shuto League title ran from August through to January. In December we had the annual MacFadyen Memorial Cup against Yokohama Country and Athletic Club and later in the year some players represented the club in the Shuto League’s representative team.

During the winter break, as in previous seasons, there was a Christmas social and a ski trip is coming soon. We will also have training sessions on free weekends.

In the spring season, the Tokyo Cup will take place. Our main focus will be to secure promotion back to Division I next year. Between our big games and a range of friendlies, there’s plenty of opportunity for game time regardless of experience or ability.

Please check your emails for game details, and make your availability known on TeamSnap. If you’re not yet on TeamSnap or the email list, but would like to play with the Crusaders, hit ‘the ‘contact us’ button on the right-hand side of the bottom of the page and we’ll set you up.
