>> Tour update: Another great tour weekend – this time saw three squads of Sheep bravely sally forth down to Birmingham.
BLKSHP Women 🐑♀️: incredible progress after a tough first day to win their first two games on Sunday against Brixton and Crown Jewels before a hard-fought loss to the Irish U-17s to finish 18th.
BLKSHP Open 1 🐑♂️1️⃣️: started strong on day 1, winning all three games including a universe point win against Manchester 2. Sunday saw some slow starts against Fluid and Red and prevented promotion to B Tour – but epic comebacks to push both teams all the way to the wire. A universe point win against a fast and fun YOpen was a great win to secure 3rd place in C Tour (31st overall).
BLKSHP Open 2 🐑♂️2️⃣️: started the tournament with a tough morning game in the mist/rain against Flyght Club, before going on to beat LED 15-12. Finished Saturday with a loss to highly underseeded Ranelagh 2. The squad rallied well but slow starts saw them go winless Sunday – although word on the street* was that the atmosphere around their comeback and near-victory over LED was epic!
