The Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club is off and running with their fall season.

The club, still smiling from their performance last June in the Bingham Cup, opened their eight-game schedule on the road in Chattanooga on Sept. 13 with a 74-7 loss followed by a 43-27 win on Sept. 20 in Charlotte. Their first home match is Oct. 4.

The season got underway last month when the Bucks held its traditional training session, “Rugby 101.” View the Project Q Atlanta photo album from the event.

On Saturday, the Bucks host a cookout at the Eagle from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Bucks are also going multimedia with video from their Sept. 13 on their web site. Watch the first portion, which includes opening interviews, below.
