World Masters Results 2014

Tuesday, 16 September 2014. - Claire Reeves

Villingen

Congratulations to the Redbacks on their ranking in Villingen for the Jugger World Masters 2014! They came in 25th (top half!) and beat their ranking from 2012. 

 

A shout-out to the previously untested Set-backs.  59th out of 65 for a team formed by players from both north and south of the equator, some of whom had never met until just before the tournament.

 

Redbacks

 

The final four this year were:

Rigor Mortis 1(Berlin, Germany)               1st place
Tercios Espaniol (Murcia, Spain)              2nd place
Zonenkinder (Jena
, Germany)                  3rd place
Die Leere Menge (
Greifswald, Germany)   4th place

 

I can’t wait to see what new mini-games, techniques and spar construction tips come back to AussieLand with our players when they return to Brisbane and Canberra.

 

Well done, all!

2013-2014 Review and Thank you!

Friday, 22 August 2014. - Wendy

Over the last year, many projects have been on the go for the Australian Jugger League that deserve a bit of recognition to the people who spent their time and effort to get them off the ground and happening successfully. I would like to take this stolen opportunity to do my best to ensure that everyone's help is recognised. Not everything is listed, I tried to group items as well. 

This should also help ...

Things are heating up for Jugger in Australia!

We are now a National Registered Body - which means the club now operates nationally!

2014 - Let's get started

Sunday, 09 February 2014. - simon feeney

Welcome from the Grand Poobah

The first game of 2014 for Brisbane will be played this afternoon (Canberra and other regions haven't had to hide from the heat as much as we have) and we're looking forward to seeing a lot of happy faces, today(and every Sunday afternoon).

 

There's a lot of things that your Management Committee have already been working on, in the background for this coming year. The new look website, spar improvements, rules revisions, new logo, promotions and reviewing our constitution have all been part of our summer "break".

It’s a Nice Place for Jugger

Saturday, 25 January 2014. - Brendon Smith

By Cake and Soul

 

Toward the twilight months of 2013, a missive was received by The Australian Jugger League requesting representatives to run a Jugger field at a festival celebrating the end of one year and the beginning ofthe next.  Six Juggers answered the call, three from Brisbane and three from Canberra, volunteering to display their prowess and show people the way of the one true dog skull.

Hackerspace open for Jugger

Monday, 25 November 2013. - Wendy


On the dark and lonely night of Tuesday the 19th of November fiend and Wendy wandered out to Eagle Farm with the aid of a bus. We were searching for.... a space... and like minded people, what we found surpassed our expectations.

The Bizarre Case of the Mystery Team From Hell

Friday, 08 November 2013. - Tony Crook

A vague re-writing of an episode from Australia's rich Jugger history

 

Back in the days of old, when Brisbane Jugger stood as the only ray of hope in the entire southern hemisphere, the group once had some strange and mysterious visitors. Back in those days we played on ratty soccer fields in Mitchelton, where passers–by consisted of the odd dog-walker or flasher, and the toilets were a half-day’s hike away.

 

Having prepared for a typical afternoon of Jugger, with the centre circle gouged out of the earth by an industrial brushcutter and the oak-cored weapons padded up just enough not to shatter kneecaps on the first strike, a few carloads of quiet strangers arrived with serious, dark intent.

 

Aloof, the black-clad mystery men weighed up their opponents (that was us, in case you’re not quite following things so far) and uttered the strange guttural tongue that betrayed their origins in the Southern wastes (Acacia Ridge, as it turned out). They wielded a full set of colour-coordinated weapons, built to spec, and they knew the rules of Jugger better than I (never much of an accomplishment, to be honest). None of the Brisbane group so much as knew or had heard of a single one of them. Not even Adam, and he was in Genesis (i.e. the bible chapter, not UK’s 80”s synthpop group).
