Welcome to the 39th Annual “Throw Me Something, Rugger”
Mardi Gras Rugby Tournament
New Orleans, LA
February 23, 2019
The New Orleans Halfmoons Rugby team will be hosting their annual “Throw Me Something, Rugger!” Tournament on February 23, 2019. The tournament is 15’s rugby and is open to both women’s and men’s teams, each with club, collegiate, and, new this year, high school divisions. Please note that this is a USA Rugby sanctioned tournament so all players must be CIPP’ed.
Teams are guaranteed at least three games (weather permitting) during the one day of competition with plenty of parades, partying, and general debauchery in the great city of New Orleans. Come on down to the Big Easy and enjoy the amazing atmosphere, food, and rugby that we have to offer!
