Dedicated ruggers PLAY for the team and the beer 1 here is some mystique about Rugby and some say that only real men play Rugby. According to president Ron Gall, there is some truth to this. "Rugby is a difficult game to play. Rugby men and real men drink a lot of beer; the two are inseparable. You play hard and you party hard/' he said. Rugby is a gentlemen's game. After the game, win or lose, both teams would get together and have a party. They forget about the game and friendships were made between the opposing players. Often the team had a keg on the sidelines and after each game team met at a bar for burgers and hotdogs and more beer. After that the party would move to another location or the team might host a party that night. A hotline number had to be set up to supply information on all their parties and matches. Two players who were leaders on the field and in the post-match socials were Scott Lisinski and Matt Langley. Both are prototypical Rugby players, according to Gall. They are there for practice and on the playing pitch when needed. They took a solid academic load and still had time to play Rugby. Scott Lisinski is nicknamed "Snake," because he's a snake on the field. His position was standoff. "Defensively he just tackles like a fiend," said Gall. "He moves the ball well to the backs. He knows when to pass the ball and when to run with it. He has had numerous game-winning trys (Rugby's touchdowns). Lisinski shows his leadership through his action in his plays. He's more experienced and he knows what to do. He makes the other players better." Matt Langley plays forward and his position is prop. "He stands out on the field and he's always there to play," said Gall. "His position is a tough one and many times goes unnoticed. Most of his efforts are to hold up the scrum in the individual battle with the opposing prop. He has to be around the ball and always support it. He has two tasks m playing prop and not many people want to play that position, but Langley cherishes it. All this makes him an asset to the team." The Rugby Football Club finished the Fall '91 season 5-2 in cup matches for the Texas ^ Rugby Union Championship. They were tied for second place in the Southern Conference and still had half a season to go. They were in good position to compete for the Texas Rugby Union Conference Championship. The TRUC is a collection of collegiate teams. At the end of the fall and spring seasons winners from the North and South Conferences play each other in the championship. The team formed in the early 80's and was very successful, but in the mid 80's the team was not as strong. The team improved with the recruitment of "ruggers" dedicated enough to show up for practice and games, building up the team over the last two years. Coach Eddi Titus, a former player with the National Trinidad Rugby Team,was the main reason why the team was so competitive in the TRUC. That and the thought of where the next party, and the next beer was coming from.-Loida Y. Casares 160 Sports Rugby 161
