New Mexico Brujos win 2019 High Desert Classic, set sights on Rio Grande Rugby Union season.

This year it was points, not pints, that made the difference. A year after seeing the High Desert trophy slip from their grasp because of a (close) loss in a tournament deciding boat race, the NM Brujos let their points do the talking and took home the hardware because of their talents on the pitch. The Brujos opened the tournament strong enough with a convincing win over the Borderlands Rugby team from down south. The next match saw the Brujos and crosstown rival and tournament host the Albuquerque Aardvarks play to a draw. However the Brujos won their third match against a well traveled Indigenous Warriors by enough to take home the tournament title (and a very handsome cow skull trophy),

The Brujos have an opportunity to volunteer (and be paid for it) to serve as bike route spotters for this year's Day of the Tread cycling event. There would be at least 2 people in 5 different locations along the various bike routes (so 10 people total). They would be stationed in these areas for about 4 hours. The people at these areas would hold directional signs and let the cyclist know the direction of the turns. If the Brujos (or ex-Brujos, old boys, Brujos fans, etc) could provide at least 10 volunteers to cover this duty, the club would be eligible for a POD payment. This an excellent opportunity to increase club exposure and to provide some much needed revenue for the team. If y

On a picture perfect fall Saturday in Albuquerque, the New Mexico Brujos dazzled in the first annual #PrideInRugby Fiesta, and organizers are already looking toward next year's event. The Brujos won their two matches against the visiting Phoenix Storm and Dallas Diablos respectively, with Dallas winning their match against Phoenix.
