Last Saturday, under the lights and occasional rain shower, the New Mexico Brujos and UNM squared off in a friendly tune up match for their respective upcoming seasons. The match was the third of a triple header that also included UNM taking on the U of A Wildcats to start the day and later the Vatos playing the U of A Wildcats. Because this was a "friendly" there was no score, but both teams played well and were thankful for the rare opportunity to square off on the pitch. The Brujos wish UNM all the luck in the world in the upcoming Mountain West rugby season. Next up for the Brujos is another friendly in El Paso against the Scorpions on September 21st.
