The Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club hit the pitch on Saturday to open their 8-game spring schedule.

The gay club lined up against a squad from Georgia Tech for the match, which was held at Coan Middle School in Kirkwood.

imageThe 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).

On Jan. 31, the Bucks hold “Rugby 101,” a tradition held early in each season to recruit new players and teach them the basics about the sport. The Bucks are also hosting a beer bust on Feb. 1 at 3 p.m. at F.R.O.G.S. Cantina in Midtown. The $10 admission is a fundraiser for the club.
