The Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club has packed away the drag and pulled out those short shorts that every jock lover, well, loves. It’s time for their new season.

To help, the club recruited a not-so-hard-on-the eyes straight jock from a rival club – no, it wasn’t Ben Cohen this time – to help lead its Rugby 101 on Jan. 7 (photo). The skills session helps new members learn the sport and pushes veterans to get ready for the upcoming season.

On Saturday, the Bucks host a Pre-Season & Bingham Kickoff Rugby Beer Fest. Of course it’s at Joe’s. The season starts on Feb. 11 with a road trip to Montgomery.
