LRD Rebel Roses v London Rockin' Rollers Allstars - Home - 16/06/12
Leeds Roller Dolls first travel team - The Rebel Roses - faced up to the London Rockin' Rollers Allstars on June 16th.
London Rockin' Rollers, like LRD were established in 2007, and played in Europe's first inter-league roller derby bout in the same year, shortly followed by the UK's first bout! The Allstars have skaters that have represented Team England and Team Sweden in the 2011 roller derby World cup, and can certainly be counted as one of UK Roller Derby's pedigree teams.
This was not be the first time Leeds Roller Dolls have publicly faced up to London Rockin' Rollers.. the first time at home in 2010, was a close fought battle, and then away in 2011, which saw LRR win both times.
To warm you up, Leeds Roller Dolls hosted a Derby-taunt bout with fresh upcoming skaters from mixed leagues. There was plenty of fresh talent from skaters all over the UK.
Derby-taunt skaters representing LRD were:
On Team Black: The Barf Vaders
Must 'Bang' Sally
On Team White: Juke Skywalkers
Rebel Roses Captain was Magic 8-Brawl, and Vice was Cecee
Skater awards for the Rebel Roses were:
Bobby Dazzler award for MVP went to Cecee
Jammie Dodger Award for Best Jammer went to Lexi
and Ecky Thump Award for Best Blocker award went to Ass-Sassin
