Inaugural Texas Cup On The Line Saturday
Austin, TX (March 5, 2020) This Saturday the AG’s head to Houston to face the Sabercats looking to bring home the inaugural Texas Cup.
The 36 inch Texas Cup features both the AG’s and Sabercats logo and each winner will be engraved into the trophy after each contest. Both teams are founding members of Major League Rugby.
“Texas is worth fighting for,” says Gilgronis CEO Matt Burgess. “The team that holds Texas Cup can proudly call themselves the best rugby team in Texas.”
Both teams have a rostered player that previously played for the opposition. Austin’s Rodrick Waters came up through the Sabercats’ development ranks and has started three matches for the AG’s this season.
Kyle Breytenbach won the 2017 USA Rugby Club National Championship with the Austin Huns and played the first two MLR seasons with Austin Elite before making the move to Houston.
After this Saturday, the Texas Cup will again be up for grabs when the Sabercats come to Austin’s Bold Stadium on April 26th.
