GRR: Major League Rugby
DALLAS– Major League Rugby has updated its schedule following the announcement two weeks ago that the Dallas Jackals would not play their inaugural season.

The Dallas Jackals have announced a partnership with two major men's clubs in the city, setting up an affiliate relationship that will play a key role in extending the performance pathway for domestic players.
New England Free Jacks rugby player Devin Ibanez has come out as gay.
