Spring 2015 Summary

Just to share some of our success of the season. We ended up with a record of 12-2, placing 2nd in two tournaments and 1st in our home tournament. Outscoring opponents 55 tries to 21. Which means we scored 4.5 to 1.8 tries per game.

Our Team

Eau Claire Men's Rugby started in 1980 with a group that just wanted to get the game of rugby going. Today, after 35 years, the rugby club continues to flourish. The team plays pool play during the fall as part of the Wisconsin Rugby Union. This usually is a set of approximately 6 matches against teams in the union. From there, playoffs happen further in the fall.

The team then participates in several tournaments during the spring. Some players also participate in 7's and 10's tournaments during the summer. Yes, it can be a year round sport! Most of the fall matches go 80 minutes (consisting of 2 - 40 minute halves). The tournaments are usually shorter games.

The team is made of people who want to learn the game of rugby and enjoy playing a contact sport. There is no special requirements to be able to participate, and you don't even need to know how the game works. Just show up and we'll teach you the ins and outs of the game. The team does tend to stick together and forms a brotherhood of sorts.
