Tigers Alumni (Men’s Side) plays in the fall (another first!) against Eastern Rockies Rugby Football Union teams. Our Arvada and Broomfield based club ventures into ERRFU with baby (cub) steps, but is growing all the time.
New and veteran players like Pomona HS graduates Chris Meis (’84) and Jeff Eberle (’77), Max Cramer (from South Africa) and Paul O’Brian played from behind, through the rain and uphill, only to have 55-50 decision snatched away from them by Matt O’Brian, Chris Manale, Luke Stanley, and Mike O’Brian in overtime under a double rainbow at the first practice on 8/19/2010. Good omens, great fun.
HS Boys (U-19) start practice in December for Spring 2011 season with Rugby Colorado (formerly Colorado Youth Rugby).
Anyone, any age not playing (American) football this fall is invited to train with the adults and college age players that have become Tigers Rugby Men’s Club (AKA Tigers Rugby Alumni).
