These 6 Minety players have written themselves into the Guinness Book of Records for taking part in the longest marathan game of rugby 7’s, playing alongside our good friends from the Horus 7 team (RAF) and Witney Rugby Club.
Over the weekend of the 29th July 2017, our magnificent 6, aided and abetted by a huge number of supporters from Minety RFC, joined forces with players from Witney Rugby club to form the Witney Barbarians 7 a side team. They took on the RAF team, Horus 7, in a gruelling and hugely challenging marathon game of rugby 7’s lasting over 24 hours.
This video is taken from the “Forces News Channel” and features Phil Thomas, captain of the Horus 7’s rugby team explaining what happened.
