Roosters Rugby support an important cause

On Nov. 3,  Rutland Rugby will face it's final test of the 2012 fall season against the Framingham Exiles. After a long and arduous season, the Roosters had faced injury and low numbers culminating in a losing season against the likes of Saratoga and Seacoast Rugby teams.

The rugby pitch isn't the only place that the roosters have met adversity though. Earlier this October, one of the ex-woman's team members was diagnosed with breast cancer after the most recent of many tours of duty with the PeaceCorps.

Through this entire season of tribulation, the Roosters plan to use this last home game as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness and research. So come by the Gawet Memorial Field in West Rutland to enjoy a day of rugby and fundraising with kickoff at 12:30 p.m. A second game is slated to follow between the Green Mountain Geezers and the Springfield Rusty Rifles.
