Brujos win friendly spring opener against Grizzlies, look to Rio Grande Rugby Union season opener ne

The New Mexico Brujos kicked off their 2020 spring campaign on a positive note last Saturday, eking out a close wing over the hosting Adam's State Grizzlies. Playing in their last tune up before the start of the Rio Grande Rugby Union season on March 7th, the Brujos edged the Grizzlies by one try in a hard fought match, with one Brujo noting that the Grizzlies "hit harder than most men's teams." The Brujos would like to express their gratitude to Adam's State for the match, and wish the Grizzlies luck in their upcoming season. Furthermore the New Mexico Brujos would like to express their gratitude to one of their newest sponsors this season, Rich Ford, for providing transportation to this match and all their upcoming 2020 road games. The Brujos couldn't remain competitive without the support of their many sponsors, so if you support the Brujos, please consider supporting their sponsors as well.

Up Next for the Brujos:

The Brujos now turn their attention to their upcoming Rio Grande Rugby Union spring opener against the visiting El Paso Scorpions on March 7th at Phil Chacon Field.

Sandia 7s Rugby Tournament Coming in May

The New Mexico Brujos are very excited to announce the first annual Sandia 7s Rugby Tournament. Premiering May 30th, 2020 in the shadow of the glorious Sandia Mountains, this men's and women's tournament hopes to capitalize on the 20 years of success that the old Celtic 7s tournament provided. This tournament will provide an excellent warm up opportunity for men's and women's teams going into the summer 7's tournament season. We look forward to announcing more details in the coming weeks and months. Save the date, we'll see you on the pitch in May!
