Who are we?
We are The 99's! Founded in the spring of 2021, our aim is to provide an alternative to players looking for something else outside of the gruelling week in, week out of the 15 a-side game and shake up the rugby landscape. Our dream is to one day provide a pathway for talented players, both male and female, to reach the upper echelons of the 7 a-side format.
But for now, we're just a couple of friends looking to help people fall back in love with the game of rugby, make people laugh with our weekly podcast and do it all in creamy, ice cold style.
Why The 99's?
Where the name comes from is a mystery, like the changing of the seasons or tides of the sea. Some say we're inspired by the infamous '99' call of the British and Irish Lions, others that we like to party like it's 1999. Maybe it's just an elaborate scheme to receive free ice cream from potential sponsors?
