Austin Events This Weekend

Austin is jumping with RUGBY!!

Saturday, April 12, at Burr Field will be the final league matches for this season against Woodlands RFC. The Blacks (2:00 kick-off) have already clinched a berth in the West Championship Final against Glendale, CO, winner of the West’s Northern League which includes Glendale, Aspen, Denver Highlanders, Boulder, Kansas city Blues, Kansas City, Omaha. The Final will be played in Ft. Worth on Saturday, April 26, at 3pm. While the Blacks don’t need the win against Woodlands on Saturday to advance in the playoffs, we need the momentum going in to the final against a tough Glendale side. In addition, a win on Saturday secures the Blacks the TRU Premier Championship over Dallas Harlequins.

The Golds have also clinched a berth in next weekend’s TRU B-side Championship and need a win over Woodlands this Saturday (3:30 kickoff) to continue the streak we started with last weekend’s 72-0 win over San Antonio. The B-Side Championships are next weekend in Dallas with the Golds playing league-leader Dallas Harlequins at 2:00 and Woodlands playing host Dallas Reds at 3:30. The winners play at 1pm on Sunday.

There will be a Rugby Festival atmosphere this weekend at Burr Field. In addition to the two ARFC matches, the Huns play HARC in league matches (12:00 and 1:30), the Valkyries play Kansas City Jazz in a West League match, and the TRU Div.3 Championships will be played. A complete schedule is listed below.

Plan to come out to Burr Field this weekend and support your Austin Rugby Football Club.
