Belfast N. Ireland WPFG 2013 Team PhotoIn August 2013, The NYPD Rugby Football Club travelled to Belfast, Northern Ireland to compete in the 2013 Police and Fire Games.  23 Members (2 squads) represented the club in Belfast, competing with some of the best international teams, including: Antwerp Fire Department (Belguim), Rugby San Frontiers (France – Rugby Without Borders), Montreal Bluebacks, Welsh Fire Service, Victoria Police Vikings (Australia),  Amsterdam Police, Upper Canada, North Vancouver.  Both PD sides struggled against some of the international squads, but were able to pull off a convincing victory over hometown rivals FDNY late on the first day of competition.

The entire trip was a great success.  The whole team bonded while experiencing some of the best rugby the world has to offer.  After experiencing all that Belfast has to offer, the boys had time for some R&R in Dublin after the games.
