SAVE THE DATE for the Texas Rugby Union Championships, May 5, 2019!
The TRU Championships will be May 5, 2019 and will be hosted at a to be named location. Come join us for an unforgettable weekend where we will crown the TRU Men’s D4 and Women’s D3 Champions.
TEAMS & DIVISIONS (order of seeding)
- D4 Men:
- D3 Women:
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.
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.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Worth Alliance Town Center [3001 Amador Dr, Fort Worth, TX 76177 –MAP] for May 12, 2018. This special room rate will be available until April 30th or until the group block is sold-out, whichever comes first.
