Please review the Spring 2014 schedule, and note the following changes:
1. Our game against Wingate on 2/15 has been cancelled.
2. We have added a game on 3/15 in Morganton against UNCC's B side. There is a High School rugby game on the same field immediately prior to our game.
3. We had to change practice locations due to field availability. We are now practicing at Belmont Middle School in downtown Belmont.
Thanks to our new Match Secretary, Fletcher Ross, the Spring 2014 schedule has been set and I have posted it to the website. We will have no fewer than 10 Saturdays of rugby action between January 25th and the end of April.
We have two big road trips this Spring: 1 to the St. Patrick's Day Tournament in Savannah and another to watch the USA Eagles in a qualification match for the World Cup against Uruguay outside Atlanta.
We keep the schedule updated on the website, and you can also check the SERRS website for verification:
Wednesday Night Workouts resume in Gastonia this week.

At these workout sessions, we concentrate on fitness and ball handling. A couple of us get there early to practice kicking, and we are usually done by 7:00.
We ALWAYS go to Friends Bar in downtown Belmont afterwards, so bring a change of clothes.

In what was most likely the last match of the year, Gaston RFC topped Wingate College in a hard hitting game, penalty plagued game.
Man of the Match honors for Gaston went to long time Gaston RFC player RC Dayton, who scored a try in what will be his last game before he moves back to Vermont.
Wingate College brought a solid team who tackled hard and ran fast. After last week's 46-22 loss against UNC-CHarlotte however, Gaston made some adjustments to it's defensive strategy to deal with the fast paced college youngsters .
