Rugby Club Luxembourg’s annual gala ball was held June 9 at the Hilton in Dommeldange. In addition to the champagne reception, dinner and dancing, the club’s season-closing awards were presented during the event.

The prize-winners were Roman Zasadny, honoured as most improved senior player; James Hancock was named most improved male touch player; Yumi Kato and Marie Verlinde shared the prize for most improved female touch players; Steven Clarke was named most important player; Stuart Kelly received the Hamish Irwin Award; Stuart Hamilton received the Patterson Cup; and Graham Goodhew, the RCL’s secretary, was recognised with the Clubman Award.

Founded in 1973, RCL is Luxembourg's oldest and largest rugby club. It runs teams from Under 7s to senior level. The junior teams play in the Belgian and French leagues, while the senior teams now compete in the German Bundesliga.

RCL says its goal is to actively nurture the development of rugby in the Grand Duchy and to contribute to the success of the national team by developing talented and committed players. The club also stresses that “new players and members are most welcome, regardless their experience.”
