As a team we have always been proud of our 'off the field'
activities and we have always ensured that this is a very
important factor for playing Rugby. One of our traditions
is the Quaich. Well the fame, or infamy, of the Panthers
Quaich Competition has now gone Global.
Some time ago the Panthers Foreign Correspondent was attending
the Middlesex Cup semi final, and whilst at the Bar overheard
a group of supporters reminiscing about past tours and surprisingly
the name Pattaya Panthers came up and the story went something
like this - "A mate of mine knows a guy who went to
the Pattaya 10's last year. He said it was the best tour
he'd had in 20 years of playing. They have this competition
on the Saturday and it was the one of the best pub crawls
ever. Teams are given score cards in about 4-5 bars and
given prizes for eating, drinking dancing and singing. He
said he'd seen photo's of 40-50 rugby players stripped down
to just their underwear drinking B-52's in a Mexican wave,
urban surfing on Taxi's and crawling through the legs of
Bar Girls in just their underwear. Mind you he'd had a few
drinks at the time so probably it's a lot of wishful thinking"
TRUE. Yes this story is true and, if anything, it's a little
understated, look out for next years 10's, and make sure your
Team is in Pattaya joining us in the fun!!
