What in the World
is Rugby?

WHAT THE WORLD
IS RUGBY?

You may have preconceived notions of the sport, but there is more to it than 30 big guys running around a field clashing into one another without pads. It's a game of strength, finesse, wit, and speed. It looks like football, it's played like soccer, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. Click to watch the 3 minute video below and be sure to come see how exciting it is firsthand.

THE GAUNTLET

Join us before the game to participate in a interactive experience for the kids. We invite you to come out onto the field, learn the basics of rugby, and meet the players up close before the game. Are they grizzly, scary giants or stately gentleman? Find out for yourself. (We promise there will be no tackling.)
