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".

 

The biggest piece of news to start the year off is our intention to hold the first away game for the Australian Championship in Newcastle on ANZAC weekend, Saturday the 26th of April. Brisbane and Canberra teams are preparing to meet each other on the field of battle. We'll welcome any other teams from around our nation and around the world to attend, if they can.

 

We're planning on attending the Jugger Meisterschaft in late September, dates TBC and we'd love to have two full teams of players to take with us, so start saving your 5c pieces so you can enjoy the full experience of the largest gathering of jugger players.

 

And remember, support crew are welcome to travel with, as well.

 

There is an Irish tournament that we would love to see Australian players attending, but it will not be the focus of the Management Committee, this year... So go, if you can, we're looking forward to hearing all about it...

 

In closing, if there is something you'd like to address to myself or to any other member of the Management Committee, or any area that you'd like to volunteer your time to help, let us know. If you have an idea and don't tell us, nothings going to change...

It’s a Nice Place for Jugger

Saturday, 25 January 2014. - Soul 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).
