The San Francisco Fog Women faced off against the ORSU Rugby women’s team in another Pacific Coast Rugby Football Union women’s division match. Going up against the national sweet 16 finalists from last year, the Lady Fog held their own ground and continued to play technically-sound and spirited rugby.
The San Francisco Fog Rugby Football Club achieved unprecedented success within the weekend of October 4-5, organizing the Fall Rugby 101 Clinic, hosting two home matches with the Lady Fog and participating in the Castro Street Fair by running three booths (two beverage, one recruiting).
Thank you to everyone that helped make this weekend an outstanding one!

The San Francisco Fog will be hosting it’s Fall Rugby 101 Clinic on Saturday, October 4, 2008.
Come out and learn the sport that’s known as a hooligan’s game played by gentlemen—and ladies too! The Fog’s Rugby 101 clinic provides an excellent opportunity for newcomers to discover rugby and learn more about one of the most dynamic sports clubs in the Bay Area. At the end of the clinic, participants will get a chance to apply their newfound knowledge of rucks, mauls, scrums, tries and line-outs in a friendly scrimmage.
Make sure to get to the clinic by 9am to give yourself some time to suit up and meet our players. The Rugby 101 Clinic will be from 10am to 12pm at Treasure Island on the corner of Avenue H & 9th Street.
Also make sure to bring the following with you to our clinic:
- Rugby boots (soccer/baseball cleats are OK)
- Knee-high socks
- Lots of enthusiasm
