What’s The Best Local Sports Match You Have Seen?

This caveman took a break from golfin’ this weekend to check out a few of the local sports in the Hampton Roads, VA area. My first stop was the womans rugby team, Norfolk Storm vs the Raleigh Venom. And let me tell you, it was one heck of a game! Two undefeated teams went head to head in a close match. Raleigh may have walked away with the W, but I am pretty sure I will see both teams at the USAR Women’s National Championships, Nov 11-13th, in Virginia Beach.

You can check out their website for more information on their upcoming matches. Or join their Facebook Group. They are always looking for new players. So if you are up for the challenge join them!

The Norfolk Storm Women’s Rugby Football Club is a Division II team founded in 1996. We are members of the USA Rugby Union,the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Union,and the Virginia Rugby Union. The Storm have been 3 time Virginia State Champions, 2 time Military National Club Champions, won various tournaments in the Southeast region, and have had several players represent the various unions in both national and international competition.

Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels are welcome.


What’s the best local match you have ever seen?

I would like to continue to cover and blog about the local events, so if you have any suggestions on what I should attend, let this caveman know!

    Thank you for watching, photographing, and mentioning us on your page! Rugby is one of the BEST sports on the planet; but, it gets little recognition in the US. Thanks for helping pass this glorious game to the masses!! Hope to see you around.
