In addition a limited, one of kind shirt for the even (pictured above) will be available for $20 on the day of the event. This promises to be an awesome afternoon of rugby and fun you won't want to miss.
Brujos and #PrideInRugby garnering local news attention
On Tuesday, October 1st 2019, your New Mexico Brujos made the local news. Relax, it was for something good! Last night on the 10 PM news KOB 4 anchor Tessa Mentus did a story on the Brujos, their involvement co-hosting the upcoming #PrideInRugby Fiesta (they called it a tournament, which it technically isn't, but not everyone can be as accurate as your favorite intrepid rugby blogger), as well as their continued effort and support for the LGBTQ community. This was amazing exposure for the club and their message, and on behalf of the entire team the Brujos would like to express their gratitude to Tessa and KOB 4.
