Sunday Morning RFC team is the 2012-2013 Division III Championship Team of the Missouri Rugby Football Union. The team is based in St. Louis but has members from both sides of the river .The Sunday Morning organization has two components... The first is the Rugby Team Membership and is made up of the active players who currently play on a day to day basis. The second is the Rugby Club Membership which is mostly made up of retired Sunday Morning Rugby players, current players, and others who enjoy the sport of rugby. Sunday Morning RFC is the only St. Louis team to have a private club house to host social events and to conduct team and club business. We are always looking for new players!
Sunday Morning Rugby Club came ready to play Saturday after the Championship match was postponed due to the record breaking snow storm and a week of controversy over who their opponent would be. At the first whistle Sunday Morning was fired up and gained control of the match by putting up the first points. Some good ball handling by the backs and nice hustle by Chet to put the first try on the board. Both teams battled with SMRC on the attack for a little while and the Hornets were able to answer with a try of their own by picking off purples offense and running the length of the field.
Sunday Morning Rugby Wins over the Hornets 32-12 to become the Missouri Rugby Football Union Division III Champions 2012-2013! Over the past few years the team has pulled together and worked hard to achieve this goal. The sidelines were filled with players, Old Boys, Wives and Girlfriends, friends and supporters cheering the team on to a victory. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the team this year! Thank you to all the coaches for their time and hard work! Thank you to all the players who are committed to building a stronger team and club!
