September 12 – Memphis Rugby Day

Tigers vs Blues September 12 at Memorial

The Tigers will play the Memphis Blues at Memorial Field on September 12th in a friendly and tune up for our conference play.

The Blues have been significant supporters of the Tigers and have provided much-needed support over the past few years. They have provided several thousand dollars over the past few years in jersey support and dues scholarship. They gave us a scrum matching worth several thousand dollars.  The Blues added to their support this year when the Executive Committee voted to contribute $2000 to our two new sets of jerseys required by the SIRC conference.

The Tigers are filled with gratitude for the consistent support by the Blues for the Tiger program. They support us with funds but also with teaching us the game of rugby.  “We look forward to playing our big brothers,” stated Coach Cole.  “They always teach us a few tricks when we play them.  We need a good lesson before we play MTSU the following week.”

The Lady Tigers will make their debut the same weekend when they take on a round robin of play with two visiting lady teams.  The three matches should make for a fun day.
