TRU/RRRC, Who Does What?

There seems to be quite the confusion on what the Texas Rugby Union and the Red River Rugby Conference each oversee. The Texas Rugby Union (TRU) is a geographical union based upon a combination of club density in an area and natural geographical boundaries. The Red River Rugby Conference (RRRC) organizes, administers, controls and regulates the game of Rugby Union Football for the clubs that are its members within the geographic area its members agree.
