Beach Rugby 2012

Beach Rugby Islay "Eat Sand"The annual beach rugby tournament is taking place at Port Ellen on Saturday 9th June: this is another very busy time on the island when the fiercely competitive players battle out a game after game on the beach at Port Ellen.

This is a great spectacle to watch, there are plenty of stands selling refreshments along the edge of the beach and a lovely grass bank to sit on.  It is a different matter on the pitch – not for nothing is the motto ‘Eat Sand’!
