VIEW PHOTOS | Winter Rugby 101 with Atlanta Bucks

image The Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club brushed off the dust from their cleats on Saturday, taking to the pitch for Winter Rugby 101.

The two-hour primer walked new recruits – and even some veterans – through the basics of the sport. The session is a rite of passage that the Bucks typically host twice a year in advance of their seasons.

But this winter, the team is scaling back on matches to rebuild the squad after a tough fall season. The Bucks ended the season in November with a 14-0 win over a gay squad from Nashville, bringing their record to 2-3. Then they dropped their rugby shorts for dresses and the successful Miss Ruck & Maul fundraiser in December. During the pageant, the club debuted its video contribution to the “It Gets Better” campaign.
