New Orleans bound Mardi Gras rugby players are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Krewe of Ruckus

New Orleans bound Mardi Gras rugby players are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Krewe of Ruckus on Mardi Gras Day. The group will congregate at Markey’s Bar (640 Louisa) in the Marignay at 9 a.m. and join the St. Anne’s Parade at 10 a.m. for the march over to the French Quarter. Ruggers from all clubs and all the age groups are welcome to participate. “Looking forward to seeing the rugby community come together on a great day,’’ said event organizer Frank Palumbo. “Last year was epic and this year looks to be even more so. Think 20 person scrums, huge lineouts, and all sorts of rugby shenanigans. I can think of no better advertisement for rugby in the area than 100’s of ruggers walking the streets representing the various clubs.’’ More info: fjp1812@gmail.com.
