Want to Play Rugby? Try Old Meth!


The indefatigable Nick Guthrie ’15 writes:

Have you ever wished that all sports involved tackling?

Do you think that football would be more fun if everyone on the team got to both carry the ball and play defense?

Do you like running, dodging, hitting, scrumming, singing, rucking, and (maybe) fighting?

If any of the above (or none of them!) applies to you, you should come out to play for Wesleyan’s own Old Methodist (Old Meth) Rugby Football Club this fall. We practice Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 at Long Lane Field. Email dbrugioni[at]wesleyan[dot]edu for more details or if you don’t know where Long Lane is.

Date: Tuesday, September 9th – Thursday, September 11th
Time: 4:30-6:30 PM
Place: Long Lane Field
