Thanks Alumni!

October 13, 2009

A great weekend was had last weekend for W&L Rugby during Young Alumni Weekend.  The Minks had a great alumni turnout for the match against Blackwater Men’s Club.  Alll alumni who wanted to play, and some that didn’t, got playing time.   This was definitely a pre-cursor to what could be a true W&L Rugby Reunion.

Anyone interested in a a Rugby Alumni Weekend?
