From our family to yours, have a great Thanksgiving! This sport brings endless amounts of things to be thankful for. Here’s to spending time with your family; rugby and blood. Cheers!
Great job this past weekend from the KU representatives for the Heart of America Collegiate Team, a.k.a. the Love Squad. Captain Ian O’laughlin showed his versatility both on and off of the field. The Love Squad played against a very good Arkansas State team and lost 47-0. ASU is ranked #7 in D1a college rugby at the moment. There was also representation from Kansas State University, Truman State University, University of Nebraska, University of Iowa and Iowa State University for the Heart of America on the day.
It’s a shame Colbert’s eligibility is up. Watch as one of America’s biggest television personalities takes the pitch with the All Blacks to learn a thing or two about rugby.
If you know of any high school girls who would be interested in trying rugby out in the Lawrence and surrounding area, contact Tracy Bennett Williams or Jason Williams for more info about training times. KJRFC is happy to help out this up and coming youth rugby team anyway we can. Stay on the lookout for a boy's high school team in the spring.
This past weekends game against Kansas State was sponsored by Hooligan Sport. Men of the Match goes to Andrew and Isaac Schmidt. The brothers both saw the other side of the try line, made numerous tackles and carries, and disrupted the oppositions set piece. Well done boys!
