The Boutlaws put their best skate forward in 5×5 Championship

A fresh Boutlaws team took to the track on Saturday 23 March for the first round of NSW’s premier roller derby contest, the 5×5 Championship.

Hosted by Outcast Roller Derby (OCD) at the PCYC in Bateau Bay on the NSW Central Coast, Western Sydney Rollers’ (WSR) representative team, The Boutlaws, sidled into town to take on OCD in the Battlegrounds competition.

The Boutlaws’ freshly announced team had a short preparation for the start of the season and experienced the loss of a team member before the game even got going. Footwork specialist, Natty Long Legs was scheduled to play, but was unable to take to the track due to illness.  The Boutlaws put on their big girl derby panties, and rolled on to display their skills on the track.

In the first jam had long time Boutlaws player ‘Newton’s Nightmare’ threw caution to the wind and put on the Jammer star, kicking the bout off with the “maximum effort” attitude that is synonymous with The Boutlaws.

We spoke with trainer and veteran player ‘Houso (aka Sneaky Stackhouse)’ after the bout; “This is a new Boutlaws team. We have some experienced players combining with fresh Boutlaws. This bout highlighted the area we need to work on as a group to strengthen our defensive lines and grow our Jammer skills.”

The combined power of ‘BuzzKill’ and ‘Bad Samaritan’ took on the job of Bench Managers; “The Boutlaws is a dynamic team that feels like extended family. Like all families we can always find areas to improve and from this bout we will look at tightening up our communication style.”

Round 1 did not work in favour of the Boutlaws with the final score WSR 95 vs OCD 170.

Congratulations to the Boutlaws and OCD’s Most Valuable Players (MVP):

  • MVP Blocker WSR – ‘Caustic Collision’
  • MVP Jammer WSR – ‘Crash Test Dolly’
  • MVP Blocker OCD – ‘Gnarly Quinn’
  • MVP Jammer OCD – ‘Desley Snipe’

Thank you to OCD for hosting the spectacular first round of the 5×5 Championship for all of the teams involved.

The next round in the 5×5 Championship for the Boutlaws is on 22 June at Hawkesbury Indoor Sports Stadium, hosted by Northern Beaches Roller Girls.

Thank you to all the supporters, sponsors and fans for being a part of the Boutlaws and Western Sydney Rollers. Connect with us on facebookInstagram and YouTube to keep in touch!

Meet WSR’s Rookie Liaison!

Meanie Queenie is Western Sydney Rollers’ (WSR) Rookie Liaison. Debuting in the league’s new role in 2018, Meanie (aka Charlie), is on hand to help freshies settle into the league.

Don’t let her name intimidate you, Meanie is a big softy at heart and is well-versed in all things roller derby – especially when it comes to WSR!

Having been involved in roller derby for three years, Meanie became involved in the sport as a way of getting fit and escaping a high pressure workplace environment for a few hours each week. Little did she imagine how much of a difference derby would make to her world!

“My favourite thing about derby is the empowerment and change of perspective,” Meanie says. My original focus was to become skinny; now my goal is to be strong and reliable for my team, and I work hard to achieve those goals.”

“The league and wider derby community have been a big part of forming a healthier perspective.”

How Meanie helps out the newest members of WSR!

“I’m here to help! I’m your personal cheer squad, your support and who you can come to for advice if you have any problems or planning goals. Basically, I’m an objective person, separate from the trainers, that the rookies can come to for anything derby-related.”

Meanie’s tips and advice for new skaters

“Everyone has derby idols –I love Biceptual and Sarge together, when they’re on the same team derby magic happens thanks to Biceptual’s offensive moves and Sarge’s amazing jammer skills! They have been in derby for a long time and have the amazing abilities to match!”

“That said, during your Derby journey you should never compare yourself to others. Everybody’s journey is different and has different bumps, and ups and downs.”

“You can only compare yourself to where you were a week before, the progress you make and the goals you achieve.”

One last word

“I’m really excited to have this role. Don’t be afraid to come up and say ‘hi’ or ask me a question!”

Learn more about fresh meet.

Join WSR!

P.S. We don’t have a photo of Meanie (she’s a bit shy) so you’ll just have to meet her in person!

Happy Mardi Gras weekend

Sydney is currently celebrating its 40th Mardi Gras. With gay marriage recently legalised in Australia (cue loud cheering); we’d like to say that if there’s one thing that Western Sydney Rollers (WSR) prides itself on (family friendly fun, good sportsmanship, etc aside), it’s the fact that we’re inclusive!

No matter what team you play for, you can play for us!

To everyone celebrating Mardi Gras this weekend, we hope you have a wonderful time!
