Charleston Outlaws Tour Ireland with C of C Alumni

The Charleston Outlaws just returned from their 40th Anniversary celebration tour of the Emerald Isle. Five C of C Alumni made the trek hailing from as far away as Anchorage, Alaska. The Outlaws brought two full squads, a competitive side and an Old Boys Side, each with two matches scheduled. Although they could not come up with any wins, each match was close and the hitting from the Americans was far superior.

Former C of C Rugger Chris “Grandpa” Sigmund ’06 (pictured second from the right), dressed out last Friday for the Eagles, the US National Rugby Team, warm up match against Life University. The match was held on the parade ground at the Citadel and gave locals the chance to see the national team up close. Chris played most of the second half at wing and although he did not score, he was involved in quite a few plays near the try line. Congratulations to Chris and his upcoming season as one of the back leaders on the Charleston Outlaws RFC.

Competitive 15s Competition Moved to Fall

The Southern Rugby Conference has decided to move its competitive Division II season to the fall and will drop the Division III competition structure for the 2013-14 season.

Members of the commissioner’s cabinet voted unanimously earlier this month to shift the competitive season as a wave of Division II conferences opted to do the same and USA Rugby announced plans for Division II national championship weekend, tentatively scheduled Dec. 7-8 at Furman University.

“Playing our matrix in the fall presents some scheduling conflicts with a number of our members,” says SRC Commissioner John Roberts. “This is a national movement, though, and we feel it is in our best interest to adapt the best we can.”

The SRC champion will be determined by November 16. The fall schedule has been posted online at .
