Domestic Rugby Preview for Sat 19 Jan 2019 by George Millar
P7 Mini Rugby Tour Fundraisers

During Easter weekend, Instonians Seahorses P7 mini rugby team will have the privilege of representing the club on tour in Europe, in this our centennial year. We will be travelling to Holland from 19th – 23rd April to The Hilversum Rugby Festival, one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

As you can appreciate the cost of activities, accommodation, meals and transport all add up and therefore the team are organising various fundraising events including car washes at the club, a fashion show on the 23rd March and a wine tasting and antipasti night on the 6th April. (further details to follow)

Our biggest cash contributor however will be the main raffle with prizes as follows -

  1. 1 week in 5 Bedroom Villa - Camps Bay, Capetown - Sleeps 10 + £2,000 cash
  2. Apple iPad Pro 12.9" 256GB
  3. Fitbit Versa
  4. 2 nights bed & breakfast for 2 adults in Clayton Hotel Dublin
  5. Whalley Gallery Limited Edition Framed Print
  6. £100 voucher for Culloden or Slieve Donard Spa
  7. Dinner for 2 at Zen
  8. Box of Fine Wine

There are only 500 tickets available so roughly a 1 in 60 chance of winning something. And, you will be supporting grass roots, cross community rugby and the better health of our children.

With 1 in 60 odds, you must be feeling lucky!! Tickets are only £25.

If you would like to order tickets, simply contact Neil Gillies at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or on 07919 493 797.

Rugby – This week & Beyond
Youth teams have once in a lifetime coaching

Big thank you to our U18's coach Stephen Lamb who organised a one in a lifetime opportunity to be coached by Ulster, Ireland and British Lions.  Rory Best, Ian Henderson and Jacob Stockdale took a coaching session with U14, U16 and U18's at Instonians RFC.

Rory concentrated on quick, accurate, tight passing with variations in running lines.

Ian was stressing the importance of peripheral vision and not only focusing on the ball but the game that is happening around you.

Jacob concentrated on catching the highball and of course, what is becoming his signature chip and chase!

Afterwards the players stayed for questions , posed for photos and signed shirts.  What a credit these professionals are and showed the great spirit of rugby is alive in Ulster.  The players throughly enjoyed their session and will be looking to put their practice into play in the future.  A great evening that brought all youth teams together.  Rickity.
