Interested in trying rugby for the first time? Have some questions?
“It’s the best sport in the world – the most amazing combination of speed, strength, endurance, and teamwork. All kinds of athletes are welcome, from the big and strong to the small and quick – as long as you’re willing to hit. If you’ve played football, soccer, lacrosse, or wrestled before, you’ll love rugby. But even if you’ve never played a sport before but want to take on a new physical challenge, rugby welcomes you. We get new players joining us every week, and our coaches and experienced players are happy to welcome you to the family. The rules are simple enough that you can be playing the game within a week or two of your first practice, but the game will also continue to challenge your skills for as many years as you give it. All you need to bring to your first practice is a mouthguard, shorts and a t-shirt you don’t mind getting dirty or ripped, and cleats. Ultimately you’ll want to invest in proper rugby boots, shorts, and a jersey, but that will come with time. Just be prepared to run until you puke, hit until you can’t stand, and dig deeper than you knew possible.”
-Mark Adams, Treasurer for Life, PRFC, 2011

The Pigs’ Summer Sevens A-side team won 3 of their 4 matches at the Roy Lucas Sevens tourney this past weekend, including a tense runner-up game victory over ORSU, to come in third in the tourney behind stout OPSB and Tsunami sides. The B-side didn’t fare as well, only winning 1 of 4, but showed dramatic improvement throughout the day.
