On Saturday, December 8, the Fog traveled many hours down to sunny San Diego to contest against the Los Angeles Rebellion and the San Diego Armada, both members of IGRAB (the International Gay Rugby Association & Board). Besides being a great day full of rugby, it was a pivotal moment for our new recruits, who got a real taste of what it’s like to be part of the Fog. Our thanks to all those who supported the Fog in this event!

Both the Fog Men and the Fog B Side squared off against our NCRFU rivals Berkeley RFC this past Saturday. The Fog Men played with tremendous effort, albeit with a final score of Berkeley’s four tries to the Fog Men’s one. The Fog B Side’s play was amazing to behold, as they continued to show improved understanding of the game and better technique, scoring two superb tries against the same Berkeley squad.
The Fog Men’s side contested against a far-from-home University of Nevada at Reno team in its second friendly match of the 2007-08 pre-season. The sides matched up evenly throughout the game, scoring two converted tries apiece. Despite several last-minute chances to pull ahead from both teams, the final score remained 14-14.
Shortly afterwards, the Fog B-Side squared off against the same UN-Reno team for its first friendly since the summer break. The B-Side fielded numerous newcomers in this fixture and played with remarkable coherency and lots of heart, winning the match in spirit and brotherhood regardless of the final point count.
The San Francisco Fog Rugby Football Club wishes to thank everyone who came out to enjoy a magnificent night at Balls Out Ball 2007, our annual fundraiser to help subsidize travel costs for the club to attend the bi-annual Mark Kendall Bingham Cup Tournament & Festival.
Come out this Saturday, October 20th, to learn the game described by some as a hooligan sport played by gentlemen. The SF Fog Rugby Football Club provides an excellent opportunity for newcomers to learn this amazing game and find out more about one of the most unique sports clubs in the Bay Area. At the end of the clinic, you will get the chance to apply your newfound knowledge of rucks, mauls, scrums, tries and line outs in a friendly scrimmage.
Make sure to get to the clinic by 10am to give yourself some time to suit up and meet our players. The Rugby 101 Clinic will be from 11am to 1pm 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
