Magpies and Fans,
Our game on Saturday will not be broadcast or recorded at all by USA rugby. We will need to do video ourselves.
The D3 Championship will be streamed live online at 10:00am (Tucson Time) on the following website:
I plan on winning on Saturday and it will be awesome for all of our fans to watch the championship game from anywhere in the country.
The game is set at 11:00am Colorado time, but will air at 10:00am Tucson time.
Please spread the word!

Yet another year that the Tucson Cup is up for grabs… or is it?? The Tucson Magpies have won it the past two years in a row. As this is a major game between the two Tucson teams, the fate of the Tucson Cup has yet to be decided.
Game is scheduled at Estevan park at 3:00pm and B-Side following after. The U-19s play at 1:00pm, so come and join us for a great day of rugby and see if Old Pueblo has what it takes to call themselves, TUCSON RUGBY.
Rugby is a sport founded on brotherhood, camaraderie and a strong sense of family and we feel that there should be no reason to confine these bonds to the rugby field. So, for the 2011 Holiday Season the Tucson Magpies have partnered with Wings for Women to adopt a family in need. We view the Magpies rugby team as a large family who take care of each other on the field because we all work hard to protect and provide for our own families off the field. For this reason, we are all happy to contribute to the community and add another family to our team for the Holiday Season.
Only 2 short weeks after competing in the 2011 National Sweet 16, the Tucson Magpies began training for the 2012 season. A feeling of “unfinished business” has led the Magpies to forging an alliance with CrossFit Works in hopes of bringing home a National Championship in 2012. Throughout the summer, CrossFit Works has pushed the Magpies with a combination of power lifting, plyometrics, sprinting, and non-traditional fitness exercises. The coaches at CrossFit Works have specifically tailored these hour long sessions to consistently increase the strength, stamina, endurance, speed, power, agility, balance and coordination of a rugby player. As Cody Dieffenbach has stated: “The crossfit workouts are perfect for a sport like rugby where you need to be explosive even when you’re tired”.
