TRU Championships

We hope you'll join us in Keller, TX on May 12, 2018 for the TRU Championships!​

The TRU Championships are  May 12, 2018 and will be hosted by Alliance Rugby at Keller Sports Park [MAP]. Come join us for an unforgettable weekend where we will crown the first ever TRU Men’s D4 and Women’s D3 Champions.

Another first, the tournament will be held in the evening under the lights, a unique experience for our teams that will be participating.

TEAMS & DIVISIONS

  1. D4 Men: Fort Worth II, HARC II, Denton, Corpus Christi Dogfish, Alliance II and San Marcos II
  2. D3 Women: Bay Area

Women’s D3

In the inaugural year of the women’s D3 league we knew everyone would have to be flexible and work together towards the goal of developing new teams. This year, the teams completed a 10 game schedule consisting of 7s and 10s matches. When looking at the overall standings, the Oklahoma Crusaders have clinched the league title. We’d like to congratulate the Oklahoma Crusaders on this feat!

For the TRU Championships, teams are required to field a 15s side and have completed their competitive league schedule. Bay Area is the only team currently who meets the TRU Championship requirements with an impressive roster of thirty players, therefore they will represent the D3 league at TRU Championships. They will play the 5th place women’s D2 team as an exhibition match.

The remaining D3 teams will come together to battle it out East vs West.

Men’s D4

This division is also in its infancy but with so many multiple sides participating they quickly got into the action. Originally the postseason format included semi-finals on April 28 but that weekend has been taken over by rescheduled matches due to weather and other issues.

The updated format will now be #1 North vs #1 South for the Cup Championship. #2 North vs #2 South for Plate, #3 North vs #3 South for Bowl and #4 North vs #4 South (next best team)* for Shield.

  • #1 North vs #1 South for the Cup Championship
  • #2 North vs #2 South for Plate Championship
  • #3 North vs #3 South for Bowl Championship
  • #4 North vs #4 South (next best team)* for Shield Championship

*Next best team would only come into play if the #4 seed isn’t able to travel.

Team officers have been sent the TRU Championship packet which includes all the event details. If you didn’t receive, please reach out to Wendy Young.
