The Barrhaven Scottish Rugby Football Club is pleased to announce the release of their rugby film: Sun, Suds & Scrums: The Barrhaven Scottish Old Boys in the Bahamas.
In the spring of 2015, Ottawa’s Barrhaven Scottish Old Boys Rugby Club traveled to The Bahamas for the second year of the club’s three-year program of extending sporting, cultural and trade relations between the Ottawa rugby community and the people of The Bahamas.
The short film celebrates the deep bonds of friendship between players – some of whom are in their 60’s, yet who continue to play the game as if they were decades younger.
“Sun, Suds and Scrums celebrates Rugby’s unique culture of acceptance and universal brotherhood,” said film writer and narrator Phil Selig. Shot in documentary format, the film shares the on and off field exploits of the travelers from Ottawa. The film also pays homage to Sir Jack Hayward, a founder of the Freeport Rugby Club and a legendary figure in The Bahamas and the sporting community at large in England,
“Rugby has been part of my life for over 50 years. I have traveled and played rugby all around the world,” said Ottawa’s Greg Thaggard of the Scottish Old Boys, “and I’m glad that I have kept playing long enough to experience all that the Bahamas has to offer.”
The film is available at the following locations:
