Discussing this with the lads, I am encouraged to know that they all want a chance to play and we will be taking on Plano High School on Saturday, Feb. 18th at 1:00pm. The match will be at either Plano High School or Stonebriar Community Church, that will be determined by 4:00pm, Friday the 17th. As soon as I find out the venue, I'll post it to the web site.
The following players will be playing against Plano High School,
Props - Joe Velten, Jonathan Holmes, Justin Didier, Alex Chi
Hookers - Scott Fahle, Christopher Park
Second Row - David Weisser, Jimmy Chi, Carter Nelson
Flankers & # 8 - Richard Clubine, Conner Spencer, Ross Chan

All first team players are encouraged to come out and support their team-mates in this match, after the match everyone will go back to their apartments/homes to rest up for the playoff match that evening.
The first team players are: Sean Harris, Anthony Paradowski, Erbold Uran, John Bradshaw, Weston Hearne, Ben Bales, Zachary Ussery, Steven Hale, Cameron Broussard, Vince Dutton, Dominic Prestia, Nathan Sohadaseni, Marc Hudak, Alejandro Chinchilla, Steven Shaffer. Ross Chan is part of this unit, except I'm taking an opportunity to try him at another position for back up purposes in the future. All players from the second side will be a reserve for the playoff match, and called into duty if needed.
The prognostication for the weekend weather is cold, the UT Dallas Rugby Club is trying to secure means to supply Hot Chocolate for the supporters of UT Dallas Rugby for a donation. If it all comes together, you'll see the stand behind our side lines.
Friday, the 17th, I have arraigned a guest speaker to come out and speak with our players. The guest speaker is the current UT Dallas Women's Soccer Coach John Antonisse. We're looking forward to hearing him speak on what it's like to be nationally ranked and an underdog going into playoff and championship matches.
As always if you have any questions or comments, feel free to
