The Tigers will start their season with a Blue vs Grey game that will introduce the new players and returning Tigers to the friends, alumni and fans of the Memphis Tigers.
The Blue/Grey game will be the culmination of our Rugby Camp that will last most of the day. The camp will measure the talents of the athletes and we’ll hone the players into a highly functioning unit.
It plans to be a beautiful day. Please come out and support the Tigers.

Captain Chris Lemons
The first social of the 2016-2017 season will be held on August 25th at the home of Chris Lemons, Captain of the Memphis Tigers. “We need to get the lads together and start getting to know each other”, stated Captain Lemons.
Many of the Tigers played together this summer in 7s play, but many other Tigers were out of pocket, out of town or working.
We need all persons intrested in playing in 2016-2017 to make this social. Alumni, past players and friends are invited to attend. Alumni should bring their Graduate Mugs.
- Date Thursday, September 25
- Location 3425 Douglass Ave
- Time: 6:30
