The ladies Kick off at 5:30 against Texas St. University Women's Rugby Club (TxStW) in their league opener. Last year marked a low against this talented side as they scored almost 100 points on us. TxStW has been playing rugby for a few years and they are well coached, not that our ladies are coached any less, but with an established program like TxSt they are able to develop a quality side year in and year out. The only draw back on TxStW is that they don't want to compete with the more established clubs like Texas A&M Women or UT Women, but that's not a problem. We welcome the competition, which will only make us better. This year we have a better team that's ready, willing and able to tackle and run the ball.
The guys play the University of Dallas (UD), Kick of is scheduled for 7:00pm, it's been quite a ride against UD. The first time we played UD in a friendly match some 4 years ago, they took care of us by beating us 63 to 10. This was a pivotal match for the guys back then, because at that time. That was the last game they lost and that match seemed to solidify the team to go on to 2 state championships and one 2nd place finish.
UD has in the past been a big side, especially against UT Dallas, but we managed to take care of our own business and come away with victories each time we play them. This weekend will be no different, with the loss that we suffered last week at the hands of Letourneau, Our lads will be working hard to get back in the win column.
Looking forward to playing this coming weekend to see how everyone rebounds from last weeks tough matches and to play well together as a team. See you all this weekend at the UT Dallas Rugby Pitch.
