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.

  1. Are you considering adding an Old Boys (over 40) division. We are a team from
