The High Desert Classic is a 15s Rugby Tournament featuring Mens, Womens, and Collegiate Divisions. The New Mexico Brujos are the defending champions of this tournament having won the last time it was played in 2019, and the year before they lost a tie-breaking boat race for the title. So they have so exciting recent history in this tournament they hope to repeat in 2021! Check out their Facebook page for more info.

 

Fall practice continues!

With two more Fall matches on the horizon including the High Desert 15s tournament, of which the Brujos are defending champs, it's more important than ever to get out to practice every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 to 7 at Phil Chacon field south.
