Hi Wyvern’s!

We are very happy to invite you to our Big Quiz fundraiser for our charity of choice, 'Diversity Role Models'! They organise LGBT+ workshops to schools across the country, their work improves the lives of young people every day by evoking compassion, kindness and understanding.

We are fortunate to have the handsome Luke Fenton, Chairman of the Caledonian Thebans RFC as our host for the evening, as well as graciously donated Proud Beer for the winning team.

The quiz has a Β£4 suggested donation which equates to one pupil receiving a workshop. You can donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stagsfundraiserquiz4drm

So trot on down to join our herd for the evening, bring a tipple of your choice and meet fellow rugby IGR players and LGBT+ sport groups from across the country as we mix you up in groups of 6/8.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 8th May at 7pm on Zoom, please follow this link to join us: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4732135558

Much love,
The Stags

β€œAs a volunteer for Diversity Role Models and a member of the South London Stags Rugby club, to support such a wonderful charity makes me very happy. Their work is fundamental to creating inclusive and tolerant schools, as well as giving strength to young LGBT+ persons to proudly own their identity and know they are not alone. Many of my aspirations and dreams were quashed by my lack of confidence due to homophobic bullying and struggling to understand who I was, I wish that Diversity Role Models had been around when I was in school.” - Tom, Chairperson of the South London Stags

Good morning all!

It’s time to socially connect this Tuesday at 8pm. I’ll be doing the quiz live via Zoom so If you haven’t already done so please download!

Although the quiz will be carried out the usual way (6 rounds of 5 questions and a picture round) there will also be an interactive round (after each usual round) where I will provide you with a question and you must either draw, act or dress up as the answer, prizes for best imagination to the correct answer!

I’ll be sending out picture rounds and answer sheets through this page.

Please note this is just for fun so you can each mark yourselves, although prizes will be given for the interactive round.

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Alcohol expected!

We had the pleasure of having a guest coach last night at training and would like to give a huge Wyverns thank you to Jenksy for her time and effort and to Butty for arranging. πŸ™Œ

It was a really great (lightning free!) session and certainly gave us lots to think about and work on as the season approaches.

If you fancy joining us for a training session or coming along to see what we are all about, we train every Wednesday evening at Southampton Rugby Club.

It was a hot night for training session number 4 of the 22/23 season at Southampton Rugby Club. πŸ₯΅

We were missing a few club members that are in Canada for the IGR Bingham Cup but the rest of us knuckled down and worked on our catch and communication skills!

Thanks to our coach Butty for some innovative and fun techniques to improve both! πŸ₯šπŸ’¦

2022/23 training session #3...we are all smiles, smoulders and sweat!

04/08/2022

Our members last night at training standing in solidarity with our trans community following the shocking decision of England Rugby to ban trans girls and women in rugby!

Our members are shocked and disappointed in the recent decision to stop anyone playing rugby in this manner and wanted to show their support, even if only in a small way!

29/07/2022

We condemn this ban - a sad day for inclusivity in rugby! It is meant to be a sport for all!

Our second training session for the new season took place last night and was a mixture of fitness training, throw and catch practise and touch.

We had a great turnout of old and new players and are really excited about the new season! Thanks to Macca and Butty, our amazing coaches for once again putting us through our paces.

Would you like to join us, get fit, and have fun? Now is the perfect time to become a Wyvern! To join, message us now to find out more!

It’s our second session of pre-season training tomorrow night! Why not come down and give it a try! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ‰

DM for more information!

With 4 days left until proceed with the vote on the proposed ban of trans girls and women in rugby stand with our community to say do not allow a ban!

Allowing the proposed ban to proceed would prevent an entire group of rugby players from playing a sport we love and adore!!

Rugby is for all!!

Photos from Wessex Wyverns RFC's post 24/07/2022

As an inclusive rugby club, based in Southampton, Wessex Wyverns RFC wholeheartedly condemn the proposed ban of trans girls and women in rugby!

The proposed ban from England Rugby goes against everything rugby is meant to stand for - inclusivity and a sport for all!

It should not matter what gender, gender identity, race, or sexual orientation you are, or identify with, rugby is meant to be for everyone!

We ask that those voting on Friday 29 July do not vote to exclude an entire group from rugby, based upon flawed and incomplete evidence that does NOT support the ban!!
