Atlanta Bucks break down the rugby basics

Add this share


Scrum. Ruck. Maul.

These are not everyday terms for the typical urban gay. But members of the Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club were tossing them around with ease on Saturday during Rugby 101, the twice-a-year event designed to educate and recruit new members.

The club just opened its 8-game spring schedule, downing Georgia Tech 12-0 on Jan. 24. (View a photo album from the Jan. 24 match.)

The Bucks continue their season on Feb. 14 (home, Birmingham), Feb. 21 (away, Maryville), Feb. 28 (away, High Country), March 7 (away, Birmingham), March 21 (home, Maryville), March 28 (home, High Country) and April 4 (away, Philadelphia).
