The Tournament


Ladies and Gentlemen:




As one of the nation's largest population of Irish, residing on the Southside of Chicago, it's only fitting that the South Side Irish Rugby Club host our 9th Annual Whiskey 10s Rugby Tournament in conjunction with the St. Patrick's Day celebrations that will be taking place throughout Chicagoland . . . the Windy City.   The Whiskey 10s Tournament has quickly grown into one of the best Rugby 10s Tournaments in the country, and it is a great way for Clubs/Teams to shake off the rust and start their Spring Season!  Men's, Women's, and Collegiate Sides (Clubs/Teams) from Oklahoma to New York have all come together to ensure that each Side will get to play Sides outside of their normal Territory/Union.   Each Side will is guaranteed 3 matches/games of Pool Play with a playoff and Championship Match at the end of the day.  After the Tournament the South Side Irish will host a free party at our neighborhood pub.   The Tournament has gotten bigger with each passing year and so . . . GET YOUR TEAM(S) REGISTERED EARLY BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT BRACKETS ARE ALL FILLED.


Match/Game Play




10s is a great way to begin a season!  You get to hit and run for 20 minutes as you work off all of the rust from the long off-season.  For those unfamiliar with a 10s lineup it is made up with the following players:   2 Props - 1 Hooker - 2 Locks - 1 Scrumhalf - and 4 Backs.   Each match consists of two 10 minute halves, with a 5 minute break at halftime . . . it's that easy . . . and fun!
