GRR: Rock Rugby
The Rugby Texas has started its season with a series of non-league games giving some teams a chance to warm up.
This weekend, Dallas Jesuit plays St. Thomas out of Houston, while St. Pius X visits Westlake.
West Houston is at Strake Jesuit, while Katy is at Lamar.
Rock Rugby is hosting a player and coaching camp in Round Rock, Texas this weekend.
Tonight, Friday, is the Coach Development camp, open to all ages and costing $20, followed by a player ID session for the Rock Rugby Academy touring team.
Rocky Rugby out of Texas took a preseason trip across the South earlier this month, facing two defending state champions.
The Austin-area team faced Georgia state champions Phoenix Alpharetta and then Louisiana state champs Jesuit of New Orleans. In frigid temperatures in Georgia, Rocky defeated Phoenix 31-12 at the Life University grounds in Marietta. Phoenix won the B-side game.
The Rugby Texas North/Central Conference may well come down to this week as Lake Travis and Rocky Rugby meet up Thursday to basically decide who will finish 2nd.
Westlake has already beaten both of these teams, albeit by razor-thin scores of 12-7 and 15-12.
