Brawlers go Mad For It in Manchester!

In the middle of the cold winter, we made the trek to Manchester to play New Wheeled Order! NWO are Manchester Roller Derby’s MRDA A-team, ranked 5th in the world at the moment. Jumping on the Brawler Bus (provided by the wonderful Premier Coaches) we travelled to the outskirts of Manchester on a cold rainy Saturday. We had two games lined up that evening and our first game was Brawlers vs NWO.
Playing against NWO was a great learning experience for the Brawlers and it was a hard fought game! Our second game was a mixed scrim with more Manchester Roller Derby skaters, from the Chaos Engine B team. It was great to work with other skaters from a different team with different skating styles and tactics!
Some of our members came down to NSO and ref, working with other officials is always really fun and a good way to learn new things.
