Baracus vs. Fog - January 12

The Fog Men’s side hosted a friendly match against the BA Baracus Rugby Club on Saturday, January 12, 2007. The Bay Area Baracus served as the opposing side in the Fog’s first ever match on April 7, 2001 and prevailed 49-0.

Seven years later, the Fog showed that they have come a long way, playing with grit, determination, and tenacity that surprised their opponents, who these days are a Division II powerhouse and past Division III Northern California Champions. Though the Fog wound up on the losing end, they held the Baracus to only two tries for a final score of 12-0.

Bingham Stein - December 15

The San Francisco Fog hosted the seventh annual Bingham Stein game between the San Francisco Fog Men’s Side and the Redding/Shasta Highlanders on Saturday, December 15, 2007.

The Bingham Stein is a symbol of the first meeting between the two teams, which took place a few weeks after September 11, 2001. Proposing that that match be played in honor of Mark Bingham, who lost his life aboard United flight 93, the Highlanders furnished a commemorative beer stein that each year goes home with the winner.

Though Redding was victorious in the first few contests, lately the Fog has been racking up its share of wins. This time, the Fog prevailed 27-18, retaining the Stein for the second year in a row.
