SLO MEN AT HOME THIS SATURDAY IN PLAYOFFS
The SLO Men's team finished their regular season emphatically with a strong win over long time rivals Oxy Olde Boys, preserving their undefeated record at home. Man of the match Brad Hyman was supported by a great effort from the pack, and clinical finishing by the backline who are operating at a high level at the right end of the season.
This Saturday sees a rematch with Empire in the first round of the playoffs. Kickoff time is 2pm. Hope to see lots of supporters out at the field.
SLO Rugby Homecoming a sucess
A host of old familiar faces were on hand last Saturday in a great day for the club. Alumni from every era of SLO Rugby's history came out for our inaugural Homecoming Game and Social. Those who were brave enough donned a jersey for the old boys game before the whole crew headed over to the Elks Lodge for a tri-tip barbecue. Larry Ferguson was awarded the Terry Conner 'Spirit of SLO Rugby' Award for his tireless service and support of the club spanning over 2 decades.
A special thank you to Kevin Devaney and Kurt Block for their expertise on the grill, and to all those members of the extended SLO Rugby family that participated. We will try to make this a great annual event on our calendar.

Unlike most American sports, rugby sets a peer group of responsibility, and teamwork. The team learns sportsmanship, fairness, and fostering goodwill towards opponents. After every match, a meal is shared with the team that has traveled to the game. We all host such a meal at every home game, and each player can talk with their opposite, in a relaxed environment. We expose some great opportunities to these kids, and will provide them the tools to be better human beings.
