Rugby @ the ECC fields

The University of Minnesota Rugby team and an area men's rugby team called the "Eastside Banshees" met at the fields behind the Eagan Community Center for matches on Saturday afternoon.

  1. Too rough for me, even to watch, but then, I'm not a guy!

  2. That is a tough sport. And the players ears usually look weird after a few years!

  3. Thanks for the Sacred Sunday visit. It is GDP's lowest visited day, usually. Perhaps people are at church! Great to see all of these sports shots. Makes me want to get outside and MOVE around. Love the pelican sweeper. So graphic.

  4. I saw New Zealand's All Blacks play a game last year and was amazed at how rough the sport was! And of course I had a great time watching ;-D

  5. I'd say it's a good thing the referees where red! Safe colour. Rugby looks like a rough sport to me.

  6. Av for den! De to med sorte huer, en fra hvert hold, er tidligere boksere - de mødte Tyson, og pist borte var deres ører ;-)

  7. Being a huge fan of rugby this was for sure of interest, seeing that it has also found its way across the Atlantic.
    Please have you all a wonderful start into the new weeek.

  8. Rugby is more than a national sport here in South Africa, its just about a religion. If you don't play or didn't play at some stage in your life, at least you watch and support. Its great to see the sport growing in the USA.
