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

Old Methodist Rugby vs. Williams College 50th Anniversary Game

Rugby: it’s like football but brutal-er. From J.R. Mannetta ’13:

Saturday’s your last chance to watch Old Methodist play a sport that kind of resembles football, but…wait why are those guys getting lifted…ah this sport is confusing.

Come out for a Little 3 appetizer as Wesleyan takes on WIlliams College at 10:30 on Long Lane Field. It’s Old Methodist’s 50th anniversary game.

Date: Saturday, October 20th
Time: 10:30 am
Place: Long Lane Field
Cost: Free

Old Methodist Rugby vs. Trinity College

Rugby is a game of undefinable emotional shifts.

From J.R. Mannetta ’13:

Every sport is away this week so come down to Long Lane to get your blood lust in. This is your second to last chance to watch Old Methodist defend their home turf. Join us for some responsible fun.

Our plans for Saturday are to :
1. Find out what a bantam is
2. Pummel the Bantams on our home pitch

Game starts at 1 on Long Lane Field.

Date: Tomorrow, October 6th
Time: 1pm
Place: Long Lane Field
Cost: Free

Play for Old Meth

Contrary to popular belief, Old Meth does not refer to Wesleyan’s vibrant drug culture, but rather to its vibrant rugby culture! From J.R. Mannetta ’13:

If you like running, dodging, hitting, scrumming, singing, and fighting, you might be interested in joining Old Methodist Rugby—the men’s club team.

No prior rugby experience is necessary. Come out to the info session Wednesday, September 5th, at 6:45 PM, Usdan room 110. If you can’t make it to the info session email dpackard(at)wesleyan.edu for more information.

In all seriousness, it’s time to get hooked on Old Meth (ok, I’ll stop now).

Date: Wednesday, September 5
Time: 6:45 pm
Place: Usdan 110
