Blackberry in Action: Rugby 7's

The Olney Seven's Rugby Tournament on the 7th July 2012 drew in teams from across the country. The Blackberry Clinic was proud to sponsor the lively, colorful and highly skilled team: The Hammerheads.

An enthusiastic multidisciplinary team was brought in to action from the clinic:

Richard Evans MSc, BSc Hons, PGDip, MCSP, HPC, MMACP
Jackson Ryan P.T., D.M.Sc. 
Louise Barrett BSc Osteopathic Medicine
Shelley Doole DC MChiro, LCC, MGCC, MBCA
Dr Simon Petrides MB BS DM-S Med Dip Sports Med DO FFSEM (UK&I)

They provided critical on and off pitch assistance and kept the Hammerheads at the top of their game throughout the day. The Blackberry team of practitioners made sure that the players were warmed up and stretched using the most up to date and evidence-based protocols, and any pre-existing injuries were strapped or treated to ensure peak performance from the Hammerheads players.

The day got off to a great start. The Hammerheads breezed through their first 4 matches with winning margins of over 30 points in every game. The Hammerheads sustained a number of minor injuries, but with the help and support of the Blackberry Clinic team they were able to continue, coming top of their initial pool.

The quarter finals were very tight with some extremely controversial decisions. The tension could be cut with a knife, but in the end, and despite the Hammerheads playing some of their best rugby they fell short of the semi-finals by just 5 points.

The Hammerheads will reflect on a day which could have left them champions, and even with the quarter final defeat were very grateful and thanked the Blackberry Clinic team for all their hard efforts and support through the day.
