QE2 Rugby Union Football Club (QE2 RUFC)
« on: Jun 18, 2023, 07:09 PM »
Hi,

While doing some tidying at my Mum's house today, she gave me one of my Dad's old ties.

I was wondering if anyone could help shed some light on it!

My Dad worked on QE2, although he wasn't crew, so I've no idea how he came to acquire the tie.  Highly unlikely he played rugby I would think!

Amazing what you find in the attic but unfortunate that there is no information. 

I found a brief mention of a Rugby Team in the Steve Adler topic

Hope there is someone who can give more information.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Whilst I was onboard I heard about the QE2 Rugby team. Apparently on World cruises they would get the opportunity to play against national teams like the Springboks or All Blacks.
We had a Soccer Team on the Sagafjord that did the same thing, our Casino Manager at the time was an ex League player....helped a bit ;D

 

How about having a meeting of the QE2 Club aboard the QM2?
