2013 World Police and Fire Games

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.

On Saturday June 1, 2013, the NYPD Rugby Football Club played its annual match against FDNY.  Every year, the match is played in remembrance of Police Officer James McNaughton and Firefighter Christian Engledrum.  Both men lost their lives in defense of our country while fighting overseas in Iraq.  The match honors the families of both heroes, and supports military veteran charities picked by the families.

This year’s match was played at Gaelic Park in the Bronx, which housed close to 1,000 fans.  From the start, FDNY controlled the match.  FDNY outgunned the PD side, winning every aspect of the game including the final score.  The PD side played tough throughout the match, but weren’t able to fend off a veteran FD team.

Despite a tough defeat on the pitch, the PD team showed great efforts off the field by raising over $3,000 in ticket sales.  The funds from this year’s match will go to a charity that provides K-9’s trained for disabled veterans.
