Gay rugby jocks Ruck-A-Buck with friends

Add this share

Gay rugby players from seven squads across the country found their way to Atlanta over the weekend for Ruck-A-Buck, the revived annual tournament from the Atlanta Bucks.

The jocks scrummed, bloodied their faces and partied hard all weekend long. They even brunched on Sunday. The tournament hosted members of the Charleston Blockade, Charlotte Royals, Dallas Lost Souls, St. Louis Crusaders, the Washington Scandals, Nashville Grizzlies and, of course, the hometown Bucks.

The Bucks like to play with friends. In April, they hosted gay squads from Nashville and Charleston for a round robin tournament. And in October 2013, the Bucks joined teams from four other states for Ruck-A-Buck during Atlanta Pride.

On Saturday, the Nashville Grizzlies came with a calendar. Twelve long months of rugger sexiness. For a cause, of course.
