The event, set for June in Dublin, is the championship of the International Gay Rugby Association & Board and something the Bucks have looked forward to all season.
“The most important thing is that we are getting better and growing stronger as a side as well as individual play,” says Bullet Manale, the club’s president.
But first, the Bucks (2-6) must get through a match on Saturday at Emory before they close the regular season May 10 against Charlotte. On April 5, the club lost to Huntsville 50-7, their second loss to the team this season. Turns out the club’s April 19 match against Emory was cancelled.
“Many good things have come out of this season. We have had numerous players grow up fast. The side is learning to play together or as our coach calls it, 15-man rugby,” Manale says.
After the Bucks match On Saturday, they host a bar night at the Eagle beginning at 10 p.m.
